A fresh approach

SignsofGodsGrace1

‘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 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 ‘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!

    Go ahead replace Christianity with anything you may find superior.
    With the world in turmoil and the earth crying out I was reminded that no one of us is superior. No one is doing more or less. This is not a race; some competition. We are all walking to save humankind from the brink of extinction. In its humanity and habitat.
