A Poem by Carol S. Wimmer – posted by Tracey Miles.

When I say …”I am a Christian,” 
I’m not shouting “I am saved”
I’m whispering “I was 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’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 I have failed and cannot ever pay the debt.

When I say…”I am a Christian,” 
I’m not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are 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 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.
