Heaven’s Grocery Store

Jesus to my Rescue    May 11, 2010    Comments Off on 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 then, you could come back 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 for the counter to pay my grocery bill,
For I thought that I had everything, to do the MASTER’s will.

As I went up the aisle, I saw PRAYER. I 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 last upon 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 with you, everywhere you go.”
Again, I smiled and said, “How much do I really owe?”
He said, “MY CHILD, JESUS PAID YOUR BILL A LONG, LONG TIME AGO.”
