When I say…

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 am 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.
