When I say I'm a Christian

When I say I am a Christian, ~Carol Wimmer
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 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 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.
Your Country Rose,
Gabrielle W.
