I stumbled across an interesting site recently entitled Christian Poems. Like the name suggests, the site is dedicated to Christian Poems. I liked the following one because of the really down-to-earth way the ‘Unknown Author’ (Author: http://www.carolwimmer.com) describes Christianity:

WHEN I SAY I AM A CHRISTIAN

When I say…”I am a Christian
I’m not shouting “I am saved.”
I’m whispering “I was lost!”
That is why I chose this way.

When I say…”I am a Christian
I don’t speak of this with pride.
I’m confessing that I stumble
and need someone 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 pray for strength to carry on.

When I say…”I am a Christian
I’m not bragging of success.
I’m admitting I have failed
and cannot ever pay the debt.

When I say…”I am a Christian
I’m not claiming to be perfect,
my flaws are all 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
which is why I seek His name.

When I say…”I am a Christian
I do not wish to judge.
I have no authority.
I only know I’m loved.

    @ Filo.

    The site, “Christian Poems” listed the piece as ‘Author Unknown’, so I just assumed they had no more information on the matter.

    Thanks for letting us all know. I will update the credits…
