Heaven’s Grocery Store

April 30, 2012 in Insipirational

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 just inside.

I saw a host of angels. They were standing everywhere.  One handed  me a basket and said, “My child, please 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.

First, I got some PATIENCE, LOVE was in the very same row.  Further down was  UNDERSTANDING, you need it wherever you go.  I got a box or two of WISDOM, a bag or two of FAITH.  I just couldn’t miss the Holy Spirit, for He 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 that 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 my 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 right into sin.

PEACE and JOY were plentiful; they were on the last shelf.  SONGS and PRAISES were hanging near, so I just helped myself.  Then I said to the angel, “How much do I owe?”  He just smiled and said, “Just take them everywhere you go.”

Again I smiled at him and said, “How much do I owe?” he smiled again and said, “My child, JESUS PAID YOUR BILL A LONG TIME AGO!”
