"When I Say I Am a Christian"
 
When I say...I am a Christian.  I'm not shouting, "I am saved."
I'm whispering, "I get lost, that is why I chose this way."
When I say...I am a Christian, I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble, and need someone to be my guide.
When I say...I am a Christian, I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I am weak, and pray for strength to carry on.
When I say...I am a Christian, I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed, and cannot ever pay the debt.
When I say...I am a Christian, I still feel the sting of pain.
I still have my share of heartaches, 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.
