I am a Christian ~Poem

I Am A Christian

When I say, "I am a Christian," I'm not shouting, "I've been saved!"
I'm whispering, "I get lost! That's why I chose this way."

When I say, "I am a Christian," I'm not shouting, I'm clean livin'."
I'm whispering, "I was lost and now I'm found and I'm forgiven."

When I say, "I am a Christian," I don't speak with human pride
I'm confessing that I stumble - needing God 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 pray for strength to carry on.

When I say, "I am a Christian," I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting that I've failed and cannot ever pay the debt.

When I say, "I am a Christian," I don't think I know it all.
I submit to my confusion, asking humbly to be taught.

When I say, "I am a Christian," I'm not claiming to be perfect.
My flaws are far 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 heartache, which is why I seek 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 grace, somehow!

When I say, "I am a Christian," I do not wish to judge.
I have no authority. I only know I'm loved.

No I didn't write this...the author is unknown...but who ever it was did a great job.

~Thankful for Christ saving my soul !! ~
