Saw this on another post and for some reason it really reasonated with me:

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 I am 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.

His peace on you all.
