Follow Me

"Follow me and I will make you a fisher of men."
I read it at ten, not knowing what it meant then.
The Bible was just another book to devour,
words to lines to pages, hour by hour.

"Follow me and you can live in eternity."
I read and read, words that were sure to set me free.
The New Testament told of God and Jesus' might,
I read it through, hungry, morning and night.

I studied the Bible and learned many things,
from Prophets to Kings, to Psalms a sheppard boy sings.
I am now challenged to study and learn ministry,
I must be humble, I do not know what God has in store for me.

"Follow me and I will make you a fisher of men."
Little did I know God's plans for me then.
I hope through prayer and dedication to Him,
I can find and share the living water within.
