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.
