They were standing everywhere. One handed me a basket and said, " My Child shop with care". Everything a Christian needed was in that grocery store. And all you couldn't carry, you could come back the next day for more.
First, I got some PATIENCE: LOVE was in the same row. Further down was UNDERSTANDING: You need that everywhere you go. I got a box or two of wisdom, a bag or two of FAITH, I just couldn't miss the HOLY GHOST, For it was all over the place.
I stopped to get some STRENGTH and COURAGE To help me run this race. By then my basket was getting full, But I remembered I needed some GRACE. I didn't forget SALVATION, For SALVATION was free, So I tried to get enough of that To save both you and me.
Then I started up to the counter To pay my grocery bill, For I thought I had everything To do the MASTER'S will. As I went up the aisle, I saw PRAYER: And I just had to put that in, For I knew when I stepped outside, I would run into sin.
PEACE AND JOY were plentiful; They were last on the shelf. SONG and PRAISE were hanging near, So I just helped myself.
Then I said to the angel, "Now, how much do I owe?" He smiled and said, "Just take them everywhere you go." Again, I smiled and said, "How much do I really owe?" He smiled again and said, " MY CHILD, JESUS PAID YOUR BILL A LONG, LONG TIME AGO." "ALL THINGS WHATSOEVER YOU SHALL ASK IN PRAYER, BELIEVING, YOU SHALL RECEIVE."
