When I say… “I am a Christian” … Maya Angelou

When I say… “I am a Christian”

 

When I say… “I am a Christian”I’m not shouting “I’m clean living.”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 stumbleand 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 weakAnd need His strength to carry on.

When I say… “I am a Christian”I’m not bragging of success.I’m admitting I have failedAnd 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 visibleBut, God believes I am worth it.

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

When I say… “I am a Christian”I’m not holier than thou,I’m just a simple sinnerWho received God’s good grace, somehow!
