Beautiful Christian Sister

Feb 16, 2010 | Spiritual | 15 comments


‘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!

Today is Beautiful Christian Woman’s Day.

Pretty is as Pretty does but, Beautiful is just plain
Beautiful..
