    I'M A CHRISTIAN By Maya Angelou

    I'M 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.

    Life is not what we expect or want...Life is about what is. How we respond to what IS makes the difference.
