Beautiful Christian Sister
By Maya Angelou
A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.
When I say..."I'm a Christian, I'm not shouting I'm clean living.
I'm whispering "I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven."
When I say...I am a Christian, I don't speak this with pride
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be by 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 to 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 good grace, somehow!!!
Pretty is as Pretty does... But beautiful is just plain beautiful!!!!
I was sent this via email from a special friend and felt it spoke volumes, maybe it will boost another woman's self esteem so she will know she is cared about. Pass it on if you like.
