Couldn't say it better myself

WHEN I SAY, "I AM A CHRISTIAN"


When I say, “I am a Christian,”
I’m not shouting, “I’ve been saved!”
I’m whispering, “I get lost!
That’s why I chose this way”

When I say, “I am a Christian,”
I don’t speak with human pride
I'm confessing that I stumble—
Needing God 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 that I’ve failed
And cannot ever pay the debt

When I say, “I am a Christian,”
I don't think I know it all
I submit to my confusion
Asking humbly to be taught

When I say, “I am a Christian,”
I'm not claiming to be perfect
My flaws are far 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 heartache
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

She said tell me are you a Christian, and I said Man I am tonight.

WB-

I thoroughly enjoyed this comment, as that is a favorite song of mine!

I'm assuming you are Lawn Whisperer, am I right?

Anyway, thanks!
