    When I say I am 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

    Nice poem, but not by Maya Angelou – by Carol Wimmer instead; http://www.carolwimmer.com/poem.cfm

    That’s a shame because her name was on the poem(must be a imposter).
