When I say “I am Christian”

By:  Carol Wimmer

NO, VERONIKA DECIDES TO LIVE.

When I say…” I am a Christian”
I’m not shouting “I am saved”
I’m whispering “I get 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 all 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.
