"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness" 2 Corinthians 12:9

I'm a Christian

I am sure we have all heard this before, but I think it bears repeating. How true it is.

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 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 was a simple sinner who received God's good grace, somehow.

Thank God for His grace!
Have a wonderful Thursday!
Hugs!

  4. Hi Cindy,
    I keep getting little pop up things on Facebook asking if I know you since we have several friends in common, so I thought I would come and say hello. Would you mind if I added you as a friend on Facebook? I enjoyed visiting you here. Oh wow, you're getting married in 6 days! Congratulations. May the Lord richly bless you both. Warm ((hugs)).
