I feel the need to clarify;
I don’t know how you see me, but I am a child of God, and Jesus Christ is my savior. I’m not by any means perfect. I enjoy living life and I make mistakes. I appear to stand on my own two large feet, but the reality is without God by my side, I can’t keep my balance. To look at me, one could say “Is that what a Christian is like?” I fall so often my face hurts– I will never be the poster boy for a church. But the thing is, I realize my need for salvation. I could never get through life on my own, falling falling falling and at some point not getting up. THAT’S what I am; one who believes that my strength comes from God, and my salvation comes from Jesus. Everything I have comes from God, and only by his grace do I have my family, my gifts, my job, my house, my life. To believe that any of this was from my own doing is a fallacy yet I don’t often give credit where credit is due. You may see me on stage or in person behaving in a way that doesn’t represent the faith I profess, and I apologize if that’s hard for you. I want to tell you that me being a Christian doesn’t mean I do everything right and I have no delusions of perfection – it means I’ve realized that I need help and can’t make it on my own. Now that I think of it, I AM a pretty darn good example of a Christian. I realize I’m lost on my own.
