HEAVEN'S GROCERY STORE

        

I was walking down life's highway a long time ago. One day I saw a sign that read, "HEAVEN'S GROCERY STORE"......As I got a little closer the door came open wide, And when I came to myself I was standing inside. I saw a host of ANGELS....

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."
