What I do is so this world will know that it will not change me …

On one of the Combat! boards, someone made a video from one of the Combat! eps (No Trumpets, No Drums) and used “The Change” by Garth Brooks as the song behind the images.  Call me dense, call me slow, call me anything but Shirley, but prior to seeing this video, I’d never heard the song, and I do like Garth Brooks’ music.

This is the video from YouTube (Garth Brooks’ tribute to Oklahoma City):

I’ve kind of adopted this as my “secular” (meaning not utterly based in Scripture) motto:  I’m going to do whatever it is I’m called to do — yes, in obedience to the Lord and His Will, but also as a witness to the secular world:  You are not going to change me; make me so cynical and so apathetic with so many awful things going on that I refuse to engage, to care and to be willing to take risks to help others.

Lyrics:

One hand
Reaches out
And pulls a lost soul from harm
While a thousand more go unspoken for
They say what good have you done
By saving just this one
It’s like whispering a prayer
In the fury of a storm

And I hear them saying you’ll never change things
And no matter what you do it’s still the same thing
But it’s not the world that I am changing
I do this so this world will know
That it will not change me

This heart
Still believes
The love and mercy still exist
While all the hatreds rage and so many say
That love is all but pointless in madness such as this
It’s like trying to stop a fire
With the moisture from a kiss

And I hear them saying you’ll never change things
And no matter what you do it’s still the same thing
But it’s not the world that I am changing
I do this so this world will know
That it will not change me

As long as one heart still holds on
Then hope is never really gone

I hear them saying you’ll never change things
And no matter what you do it’s still the same thing
But it’s not the world that I am changing
I do this so this world we know
Never changes me

What I do is so
This world will know
That it will not change me
