WHEN I SAY “I AM A CHRISTIAN”

by Carol Wimmer

When I say..”I am a Christian”

I’m not shouting “I am saved”

I’m whispering “I get lost”

“This is why I chose this way”.

When I say..”I am a Christian”

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’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 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.
