Christians

By Maya Angelou

“A woman’s heart should be so hidden in Christ that a man should have to seek Him first to find her.”

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 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’m worth it.

When I say… ”I am a Christian” I still feel the sting of pain. I have my share of heartaches, so I can 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.

Pretty is as Pretty does… but Beautiful is just plain Beautiful!
