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 open wide, and when I came to myself, I was standing inside.
I saw a host of ANGELS; they were standing everywhere. And one ANGEL 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 the race. By then, my basket was getting full, but I remembered I need some GRACE.
I didn’t forget SALVATION. For SALVATION that was free.
So, I tried to get enough of that save you and me.
Then I started 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. SONG and PRAISES were hanging near so I just helped myself.
Then, I said now how much do I owe? HE just smiled and said, JUST TAKE THEM EVERYWHERE YOU GO. How much do I really owe? HE smiled and said, MY CHILD, JESUS PAID YOUR BILL A LONG TIME AGO." TO GOD BE THE GLORY FOR EVERYTHING IN 2012. LET THERE BE LIGHT DAILY AND EMBRACE GOD'S GRACE OVER YOUR LIFE LIKE NEVER BEFORE!"
