One day I heard the Lord ask me if I wanted to go fishing. God knew I am not an outdoorsy girl so I knew He meant fishing for souls. The person that was heavy on my heart He showed me was the big fish I would one day catch. This was a great comfort for my soul. He still is out there but I believe he one day will be caught. Now I pray with confidence for him to be saved.
Many have gone fishing though they do not call it this.
They are casting out in the world’s sea for certain kind of fish.
Some seek to land a good job, or perhaps success is their game.
Some search for wealth and some for fame.
There is certain individuals that fish for complements as self is displayed.
Some are fishing for trouble each and every day.
Some seek excitement and toy with dangerous friends.
They cast their line and will be sorry the mess they find they are in.
There are fishers of lust and perversion, lies and deceit.
Where are the fishers that will fish the lost in life’s streams?
There is a need of workers to follow after Christ.
That will be fishers of men. Who will dedicate their life?
Come follow the example Jesus gave to thee,
Die to self-ambitions and follow after me.
I will give you all things profitable to the soul.
You will be well fed, clean, sound, and whole.
Purpose in yourself to be as a sign for the world to behold;
A sign that says, Gone Fishing, in letters bright and bold.
A life that shouts, I am a fisherman in God’s employ,
My task is a pleasure and brings great joy.
It is time to go fishing; invite a friend to join you in your toil,
You will have a good catch that never spoils.
And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
