One of Them


Oh the fear of

becoming

"One" of them.

I will never

&

I don't need to be

because

I am a good person,

most of the time

and that is enough.

I would be giving up

way too much

&

could never be that

good

all the time.

Well,

my theology was wrong

and

I became

"One" of them.

What freedom,

because

in my becoming

I was just confessing

that

I can't

but

He Can Be

all that

I can't be~

&

that I can't

but

He Can do

all that

I can't do.

So

Are you "One" of them?

Read the words of Carol Wimmer and

you decide~

"When I say, “I am a Christian” I’m not shouting, “I’ve been saved!” I’m whispering, “I get lost sometimes That’s why I chose this way”

"When I say, “I am a Christian”

I don’t speak with human pride I’m confessing that I stumble – needing God 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 that I’ve failed and cannot ever pay the debt

"When I say, “I am a Christian”

I don’t think I know it all I submit to my confusion asking humbly to be taught

"When I say, “I am a Christian”

I’m not claiming to be perfect My flaws are far 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 heartache which is why I seek God’s name

"When I say, “I am a Christian”

I do not wish to judge I have no authority I only know I’m loved
