"I am a Christian"

Someone posted this poignant poem on a message board I frequent. It really touched me, so I wanted to share it with all of you.


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


Have a blessed day.
