As I was sorting through some books recently to participate in a book and magazine swap with some friends a piece of paper fell out of one of the books. I began to read it and thought...this is how I truly feel. His grace, mercy and love is what covers me and that is it!
I am a Christian
When I say..."I am a Christian" I'm not shouting, "I'm clean living". I'm whispering "I was lost", Now I'm found and I'm 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 on 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'm a Christian" I'm not holier than thou. I'm just a simple sinner who received God's grace...
I hope that you have been blessed by this little poem that I found that I had stuck in an old book...a great reminder to me once again of God's Ultimate Grace!
And I must share...I was so surprised to find out that I was featured on Linda's "show and share" over at Coastal Charm.Here is the link and here was the feature! http://linda-coastalcharm.blogspot.com/2015/06/show-and-share-no268.html
Happy 4th of July!
