When I say that ‘I am a Christian’….




When I say that ‘I am a Christian’….
I am not shouting that ‘I am clean living.

I’m whispering ‘I was lost, but 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 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 received God’s good grace, somehow!

 Be Blessed, Be a Blessing
