Article | I Am A Christian

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.
