I am Christian

leave a comment »

When I say that “I am a Christian”, I am not shouting that I am clean living.
I’m whispering “I was lost, but 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 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 too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say “I am a Christian” I still fell the sting of pain.
I have my share of heartache, so I call upon His name.

When I say “I am a Christian” I’m not holier that thou.
I’m just a simple sinner who received God’s good grace, somehow!

How can I not love you

leave a comment »

Listen. I sing this song for you.

Cannot touch
Cannot hold
Cannot be together

Cannot love
Cannot kiss
Cannot have each other

Must be strong,
And we must let go
Cannot say
What our hearts must know
How can I not love you
What do I tell my heart
When do I not want you
Here in my arms

How does one waltz away
From all the memories
How do I not miss you
When you are gone

Cannot dream
Cannot share
Sweet and tender moments

Cannot feel
How we feel
Must pretend it’s over

Must be brave,
And we must go on
Must not say,
What we’ve known all along

How can I not love you
What do I tell my heart
When do I not want you
Here in my arms

How does one waltz away
From all the memories
How do I not miss you
When you are gone
How can I not love you..

[[Musical Interlude]]

Must be brave,
And we must be strong
Cannot say,
What we’ve known all along.

How can I not love you
What do I tell my heart
When do I not want you
Here in my arms

How does one waltz away
From all the memories
How do I not miss you
When you are gone

How can I not love you..
When you are you gone….

I am so gonna miss you…
