I am a Christian

Christians - By Maya Angelou

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 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!
