Inspirations




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. . ..

Thank you Miss Angelou for blessing us with your beautiful writing.
