Beautiful Christian Sister…

rose 21

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… “I am a Christian”, I’m not trying to be strong.

I’m professing that I am weak and need His strength 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’m not claiming to be perfect,

My flaws are too visible but, God believes I am worth it.

 

When I say… “I am a Christian”, I still feel the sting of pain…

I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

 

When I say… “I am a Christian”, I’m not holier than thou,

I’m just a simple sinner who received God’s good grace, somehow!
