I am a Christian

When I say..."I am a Christian"
I'm not shouting "I'm clean living."
I'm whispering "I was lost, now I'm found and forgiven."


When I say... "I am a Christian"
I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.


When I say..."I am a Christian"
I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.


When I say..."I am a Christian"
I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.


When I say..."I am a Christian"
I'm not claiming to be perfect.
My flaws are far too visible but God believes I am worth it.


When I say..."I am a Christian"
I still feel the sting of pain.
I have my share of heartaches so I call upon His name.


When I say..."I am a Christian"
I'm not holier than thou.
I'm just a simple sinner who received God's good grace, somehow!
