When I say …

I heard this in a sermon two weeks ago, and stumbled on it through angela (thanks!)


WHEN I SAY…

When I say… “I am a Christian”
I’m not shouting “I’m clean livin'”
I’m whispering “I was lost”
Now I’m found and forgiven.

When I say… “I am a Christian”
I don’t speak of this with pride
I’m confessing that I stumble
and need CHRIST 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 need HIS strength to carry on.

When I say… “I am a Christian”
I’m not bragging of success
I’m admitting I have failed
and need GOD to clean my mess.

When I say… “I am a Christian”
I’m not claiming to be perfect
My flaws are far too visible
but GOD believes that I’m worth it.

When I say… “I am a Christian”
I still feel the sting of pain
I have my share of heartaches
So I call upon HIS name.

When I say… “I am a Christian”
I’m not holier than thou
I’m just a simple sinner
who received GOD’s good grace, somehow.
