When I say, “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 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 all 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 do not wish to judge

I have no authority…

I only know I’m loved
