Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman
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.
And one angel said, “My child shop with care.”
Everything a Believer 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 Spirit for He 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 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 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, Yeshua paid your bill a long time ago.”
