When I say I am A Christian

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 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... that I am a christian I am not trying to be strong. I'm professing that I'm weak and need his strenght 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 am not claiming to be perfect.  My flaws are far too visible but, God believe I am worth it. When I say...I am a christian I still feel the sting of pain.  I have my share of headaches so I call upon his name.  When I say...I am a christian I am not holier than thou; I;m just a simple sinner who recieved God's good grace somehow!
