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 was 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 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 heartaches
Which is why I speak 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.
