Inspiring poem of an honest faith

I saw this poem on this site here, and found it really beautiful and true.

When I say…I am a Christian
I’m not shouting, “I am saved.”
I am whispering, “I get lost,”
That is why I chose this way.

When I say…I am a Christian
I don’t speak of this with pride.
I’m confessing that I stumble
And need someone 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 I have failed
And cannot ever pay the debt.

When I say…I am a Christian
I’m not claiming to be perfect.
My flaws are much too visible
But God believes I’m worth it.

When I say…I am a Christian
I still feel the sting of pain
I still have my share of heartaches
Which is why I seek His name.

When I say…I am a Christian
I do not wish to judge.
I have no authority
I only know I’m loved.
