Being a Christian

by Maya Angelou

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.
