When I say…”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’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.
