This is something I read that is by Ps. Chris Pringle that truly moved me deep within my spirit and I simply HAD to share it-"My heart to yours..."My heart stirs as I see a new type of woman rising around me. She is a woman who has influence in her world and beyond. She is a voice for the future. This woman is surprising. She is not the woman we expect to see out front. She doesn't frequent the front covers of glossy magazines, nor does she speak eloquently in the pulpits of our churches. She may not look like a woman of influence, her hands could be scarred, dirtied, calloused from hard work...her make-up imperfect...her hair ruffled...her brow marked with a burden. In a worldly sense she may be unknown, unnamed, unglamorous. She will defy all our stereotypes. Yet this woman doesn't need to be recognized. She purposefully walks the earth and each day with her hands reaching out to those around her. She offers love and acceptance, dignity and mercy. This, my friends, is the woman I see changing the future of our world. She is a secret revolutionary...she is 'everywoman'.
My beautiful girls!! Krystin (age 10) & Adison (3months) MySpace Comments MySpace Comments MySpace CommentsWhen I say...'I am a Christian' I am not shouting "I am 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 of this with pride. I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ 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 need Christ's 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 way 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 Chrisitan' I'm not holier than thou. I'm just a simple sinner who received God's good grace somehow!
