I am a Christian

Posted on

When I say…  ‘I am a Christian’ I’m not shouting ‘I’m clean livin’

 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  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!

  1. When I say ‘I am a Christian’ it does not mean mama must follow me. It means we walk together hand in hand following Christ.

    I like this post Little One!

  41. Emma, welcome! I’m sorry to hear your experience hasn’t been a positive one. I hope you keep coming back and join in on our hysterical conversations that happen over time. Much like the one in this comments section! 😆
