Beautiful Christian Sister

“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’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 God 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, 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!
