When I say I'm a Christian

When I say, “I am a Christian” I’m not shouting, “I’ve been saved!”

I’m whispering, “I get lost! That’s why I chose this way”

When I say, “I am a Christian” I don’t speak with human pride

I’m confessing that I stumble—Needing God 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 that I’ve failed and cannot ever pay the debt

When I say, “I am a Christian” I don’t think I know it all

I submit to my confusion Asking humbly to be taught

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 heartache, 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.
