Just to remind you


When I say that 'I am a Christian', I am not shouting that 'I am clean living. I'm whispering 'I was lost, but 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 you. I’m just a simple sinner who received God's grace. 

Be Blessed, Be a Blessing.  When you feel like you're drowning in life, don't worry -- your Lifeguard walks on water.
