“When I say I am a Christian…”

I found this on Tammy Trent’s blog post…unknown author, but AMAZING words:) Hope it blesses you as well:)

“When I say, ‘I am a Christian’ I’m not shouting I’m clean livin’. I’m whispering I was lost and 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’m a Christian’ I’m not trying to be strong. I’m professing that I’m 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 Jesus to clean my mess. When I say, ‘I am a Christian’ I’m not claiming to be perfect. My flaws are far too visible but Jesus believes I am worth it. When I say, ‘I’m 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’m a Christian’ I’m not holier than thou. I’m just a simple sinner who received Christ’s good grace, some how.”
