I am a Christian

When I say … I am a Christian
I’m not shouting  “I am saved.”
I’m whispering “I get lost”
That is why I chose this way.

When I say … I am a Christian
I don’t speak of this with pride.
I’m confessing that I stumble
and need someone to be my guide.

When I say … I am a Christian
I’m not trying to be strong.
I’m professing that I am weak
and pray for strength to carry on.

When I say … I am a Christian
I’m not bragging of success.
I’m admitting I have failed
and cannot ever pay the debt

When I say … I am a Christian
I’m not claiming to be perfect.
My flaws are 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 heartaches
which is why I seek HIS name.

When I say … I am a Christian
I do not wish to judge.
I have no authority
I only know I’m loved.
