When I Say


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 am 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. >> * Unknown
