Heavens Grocery Store
 

I was walking down life's highway, a long time ago 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 needs is in this store".

First I got some PATIENCE, and 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, it was all over the place.

I stopped to get some STRENGTH and COURAGE to help me run the race, By then my basket was getting full, but I remembered I needed GRACE. I didn't forget SALVATION, for SALVATION, that was free.  So I tried to get enough 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 my Master's will. As I went up the aisle, I saw PRAYER and just had to put that in For I knew when I stepped outside, I would run right into sin.

PEACE and JOY were plentiful, they were on the last shelf.  SONGS and PRAYERS were hanging near, so I just helped myself.

Then I saw the angel and asked,

"How much do I owe?"

She just smiled and said,

"Just take them everywhere you go."

Again I smiled at her and said,

"How much, now do I really owe?"

She smiled and said,

 "My child,
Jesus paid your bill a long time ago."
