I’m Called to Go and Change the World

I wrote this poem based on a thought I’ve been having about making a difference, and how it must be one heart at a time:

I’m Called to Go and Change the World

I’m called to go and change the world
and make it a better place,
but I can only change the world
one heart at a time.

I’m asked to cry repentance
and bring my siblings unto Christ,
but repentance only touches people
one heart at a time.

I’m a soldier, God’s elite,
sent to fight Satan’s hosts
but the hardest battles are always fought
one heart at a time.

I talk, I preach, I pray, I hope
that people’s hearts can change.
This gospel brings joy and peace and hope
one heart at a time.

When life gets hard, I’ll stop and think
of why I’m doing this,
why I’m healing up a fallen world
one heart at a time.

And I remember the One who died
and lived to make a difference.
As He did, I too will bless people
one heart at a time.

Each work I say, each deed I do,
is to change the hearts around me
with differences that are only made
one heart at a time.
