HEAVEN'S GROCERY STORE

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 leave ALL YOUR NEGATIVE QUALITIES like ANGER, HATRED, JEALOUSY as well as any negative thoughts you may have in the basket and leave the basket here and then take another basket and 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, "NOTHING MY CHILD, JESUS PAID YOUR BILL A LONG, LONG TIME AGO AND THESE ARE IN RETURN FOR WHAT YOU LEFT BEHIND WHEN YOU CAME IN."
