I am a Christian

This poem is so true and from the heart:
A woman’s heart should be so hidden in Christ that a man should have to seek Him first to find her.’
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!
