When I say ..."I am a Christian"

Inspirational Christian Poem


Artwork of Joyce Ann Birkenstock


When I say ... "I am a Christian"
I'm not shouting, "I'm 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 that I've failed,
and cannot ever pay the debt



When I say ... "I am a Christian"
I'm not claiming to be perfect,
my flaws are way 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!
