I was walking down life’s highway a long time ago. One day, I read a sign that said Heaven’s Grocery Store. As I got a little closer, the door opened wide. When I came to myself, I was already standing inside and saw a host of Angels. They were standing everywhere. One handed me a basket and said, “My Child, shop with Love”.
Everything a Christian needed was in the grocery store. First, I got some PATIENCE. LOVE was in the same row. Farther down was UNDERSTANDING. You need that everywhere you go. I got a box or two of WISDOM and a bag or two of FAITH. I couldn’t miss the HOLY SPIRIT, it was all over the place. I stopped to get STRENGTH. SALVATION was free, so I took enough of that for both you and me. As I went up the aisle, I saw PRAYER. I took some for I know that when I go 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 helped myself.
Then I started to pay my grocery bill for I thought I had everything I need for the Master’s will. I said to the Angel, “How much do I owe you?” He smiled and said, “My Child, Christ paid for them for you along, long time ago. All things, whatever you ask in prayer, believe you shall receive.
