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 there 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, you could come back for more.

First, I got some patience, love was in the same row,
Further down was understanding, you need that wherever you go.
I got a box or two of wisdom and 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
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 all plentiful, they were on the last shelf,
Song and praises were hanging near, so I just helped myself.

Then I said to the angel, "Now 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."

"The True meaning of Love"

One First Class Ticket to Heaven

Dear God in heaven, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I
acknowledge to You that I am a sinner, and I am sorry
for my sins and the life that I have lived; I need your

I believe that your only begotten Son Jesus Christ shed
His precious blood on the cross at Calvary and died for
my sins, and I am now willing to turn from my sin.

You said in Your Holy Word, Romans 10:9 that if we
confess the Lord our God and believe in our hearts that
God raised Jesus from the dead, we shall be saved.

Right now I confess Jesus as the Lord of my soul. With
my heart, I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead.
This very moment I accept Jesus Christ as my own
personal Savior and according to His Word, right now I
am saved

Thank you Jesus for your unlimited grace which has
saved me from my sins. I thank you Jesus that your grace
never leads to license, but rather it always leads to
repentance. Therefore Lord Jesus transform my life so
that I may bring glory and honor to you alone and not to

Thank you Jesus for dying for me and giving me eternal

With Love,
Jesus Christ
