Awesome poem!

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 itl.

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 recieved God's good grace somehow!
