When I Say "I Am A Christian"  

Print this page    

When I say..."I am a Christian"
 I'm not shouting "I am saved"

 I'm whispering "I get lost!"

 "That is why I chose this way."

 

 When I say..."I am a Christian"

 I don't speak of this with pride.

 I'm confessing that I stumble

 and need someone 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 pray for strength to carry on.

 

 When I say..."I am a Christian"

 I'm not bragging of success.

 I'm admitting I have failed

 and cannot ever pay the debt.

 

 When I say..."I am a Christian"

 I'm not claiming to be perfect,

 my flaws are too visible

 but God believes I'm worth it.

 

 When I say..."I am a Christian"

 I still feel the sting of pain

 I have my share of heartaches

 which is why I seek His name.

 

 When I say..."I am a Christian"

 I do not wish to judge.

 I have no authority.

 I only know I'm loved.
