When I say, "I am a Christian" by Carol Wimmer

When I say, “I am a Christian”
I’m not shouting, “I’ve been saved!”
I’m whispering, “I get lost!
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 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

We have to give up what we can’t keep, to gain what we can’t lose.

Jesus said, “For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me and for the gospel will save it” -Mark 8:35

Dancing with Jesus by Angela L. Fischesser

Dance with me, He pleads.

Dance within my light,

Feel the warmth, the delight.

Let me lead just follow.

I will not run you astray.

Simply follow me, all your days.

I will guide your feet along the read

That lifts you up, that leads you home.

All you need to do is simply dance,

Dance with me,

Follow my steps,

Follow my lead,

Let me be your guide,

Lovingly living with you

By you side.

Just take my hand,

I'll hold you close.

Together we will dance,

Together down this road.

A Christian Dance Poem entitled "Guidance"

Author Unknown

When I meditated on the word
GUIDANCE, I kept seeing "dance" at the
end of the word. I remember
reading that doing God's will is a lot
like dancing. When two people
try to lead, nothing feels right. The
movement doesn't flow with
the music, and everything is quite
uncomfortable and jerky.

When one person realizes and
lets the other lead, both bodies begin
to flow with the music.
One gives gentle cues, perhaps with a nudge
to the back or by pressing
lightly in one direction or another. It's
as if two become one body,
moving beautifully. The dance takes
surrender, willingness, and
attentiveness from one person and gentle
guidance and skill from the other.

My eyes drew back to the word
GUIDANCE. When I saw "G," I thought of
God, followed by "u" and "i."
"God, "u" and "i" "dance." God, you,
and I dance! This
statement is what guidance means to me.

As I lowered my head, I
became willing to trust that I would get
guidance about my life. Once
again, I became willing to let God lead.

My prayer for you today is
that God's blessings and mercies be upon
you and your family on this
day and everyday. May you abide in Him
as He abides in you.
Dance together with God, trusting Him to lead
and to guide you through each
season of your life.

I hope you dance!!!

The Bible...

The Bible is Trustworthy
The Bible is God's Word
The Bible is Holy
The Bible is True

Psalm 73:26

My flesh and my heart may fail but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

My Redeemer by (RedeemedByHisGrace7)

I wake up and go to sleep thinking about you,
About all the beautiful things that you have done.
You are truly the best thing that has happened to me.
You've guided me towards the right path & have pushed me away from the wrong;
Your my refuge & my faithful Father,
I love you.
I trust you.
I depend on you.
And I live for you!
