The Jesus Catalogue
I was running down life’s highway, my feet with blisters sore when I saw a sign that read, “HEAVENS GROCERY STORE”.
As I got a little closer, the door came open wide,
And when I came to myself, I was standing right inside.
I saw a host of angels-they were standing everywhere
One gave to 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 – and love was in the same row
Further 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 just couldn’t miss the Holy Spirit – He was all around the place.
Then I stopped to get some strength and courage to help me run this race.
By then my basket was getting full, but then I remembered I needed some grace.
