One of Those


I am one of "those" people.

I was afraid of "those" people

because if I became one of "those" people

then what would others think of me?

So I was sort of one of "those" people

as I did some of the things they did

but there was no way I would go to the extreme.

Well

the day I became one of "those" people

was the day that I wish I would have

not resisted being one of "those" people

because I had it all wrong.

I am one of "those" people

and I am eternally thankful for that

because

becoming one of "those" people

was the best decision of my life

because

it gave me life~

REAL LIFE~

and I will never be

ashamed of being one of "those" people.

WHEN I SAY, "I AM A CHRISTIAN" (Carol Wimmer)

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
