I’m a Christian


When I say… “I am a Christian” I’m not shouting “I’m clean livin’.
I’m whispering “I was lost”, Now I am 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’ good grace, somehow.
