Day 5: Abandoned


Once Upon A Time

when

I became a CHRISTIAN

I placed expectations on myself to be perfect~

Because isn't that

who a CHRISTIAN is?

Once Upon A Time

because

I did become a

CHRISTIAN

others have put expectations on me to be perfect

because isn't that

who a CHRISTIAN is?

Once Upon A Time

when I became a CHRISTIAN

I cried out to

GOD

who clothed me

with

HIS SON'S PERFECTION

because

GOD

knows that

I can never be

&

you can never be

PEFECT.

Once Upon A Time

I gave up striving to be

PERFECT

because

I needed a

PERFECT SAVIOR

to cover

Imperfect me

with

HIS PERFECTION

so that

HE

can be all that I can never be on my own

on my way in becoming all

who HE has created me to be~

"I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for CHRIST, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where GOD is beckoning us onward—to JESUS. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back" (Philippians 3:12-14).

Therefore,

WHEN I SAY I AM A CHRISTIAN

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.

Being a CHRISTIAN is

TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE

because it becomes all about

JESUS

and all you have to do is

ABANDON yourself to HIM

and say

"HERE I AM"
