Faith Filled Friday: When I Say…

October 26, 2018

Both of these were on my Facebook page. My favorite is the one about worry and prayer. I’m better at worrying than praying! As we all know it should be the other way around.

When I say that “I am a Christian,” I am not shouting that “I am clean living.”
I’m whispering, “I was lost, but now I’m found and forgiven.”

When I say that “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 that “I am a Christian,” I am not trying to be strong.
I’m professing that I’m weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say that “I am a Christian,” I am not bragging of success.
I’m admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say that “I am a Christian,” I am not claiming to be perfect.
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say that “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 that “I am a Christian,” I am not holier than thou.
I’m just a simple sinner who received God’s good grace, somehow!

Worry and Prayer
Worry is a conversation you have with yourself about things you cannot change.
Prayer is a conversation you have with God about things He can change.
