A Poem by Carol Wimmer
When I say, “I am a Christian,” I’m not shouting, “I’ve been saved!”
I’m whispering, “I get lost sometimes, 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 God’s Name.
When I say, “I am a Christian,” I do not wish to judge,
I have no authority, I only know I’m loved.
