When I Say I Am A Christian…

When I Say I Am A Christian

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

- Carol Wimmer, 1988

  1. Wow…you’ve drawn the real reflections of Christianity that I wish some of those who preach in its name could have the same view…
    stay blessed&pass the flame

    • Just a few years ago, I found myself extremely prejudiced towards the church & Christianity in general. Its amazing how my perspective has changed as I’ve gone through hell in my personal life, and found a church that actually feeds my spirit.

      The hope & love in Christianity are what separates it, and your right…this should be preached more. Thanks for your feedback!

  2. Awesome indeed! I just may be a Christian, and not know it!

  3. awesome thanks! I def think too its about jesus teachings and gods love for all of us not just a select few! thanks so much encouraging!

    • Thank YOU! Its amazing how often the principles Jesus taught can be misinterpreted by man, and cause confusion, prejudice, and resentment with so many!
