I Just Want to Clarify…

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.
