“When I Say, ‘I Am a Christian’” by Carol Wimmer

downloadWhen I say ―I am a Christian,‖ I‘m not shouting I‘m clean livin‘; I‘m whispering, ―I was lost. Now I‘m 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 that I failed and need Christ 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 I‘m worth it. 

When I say ―I am a Christian,‖ I still feel the sting of pain. I have my share of heart-aches, 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!
