I am a Christian


When I say... 'I am a Christian'
I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living'
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 heart aches, 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!'
