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."
(MATTHEW 21:22)
