Sunday Spiritual



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 grace.


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


Be Blessed, Be a Blessing.
When you feel like you're drowning in life,
don't worry -- your Lifeguard walks on water.

a wonderful sentiment. too many people toss the word Christian around and it means nothing to them. I am a follower of Christ and prefer to have a relationship with him then to have religion.
