I love This....

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 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!
