Heaven's Grocery Store


I was walking down life's highway a long time ago,
When 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 my self, I was standing inside.
I saw a host of Angels, they were standing everywhere,
One gave me a basket; and "said child shop with care".
Everything a Christian needed was in that grocery store,
And all you could not 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 everywhere you go,
I got a box or two of wisdom, a bag or two of faith,
And 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 this race, By then my basket was getting full,
But I remembered I needed some grace.

I didn't forget salvation, for salvation was always free,
So I tried to get enough of that to save both you and me;
Then I started to the counter to pay my grocery bill,
For I thought I had everything to do my master will .
As I went up the aisle, I saw prayer, I just had to put that in,
For when I knew when I stepped outside, I would run
right into sin.

Peace and Joy were plentiful, they were there on the last shelf,
songs and praises were hanging near so I just helped myself;
Then I said to the Angel" now how much do I owe?"
he smile and said, " take them Everywhere you go."
Again I smile and said, "really, how much do I owe?"
He smile again and said " my child, Jesus paid your bill a long time ago."~

Compliments of Lifetime Movie yes, Lifetime tv.

Key Bible Verses provided by Malikie

Thank you Malikie for providing us with wisdom and inspiration last night! For those who could not attend, Malikie spoke of the development of our Christian relationship with God (which seems to be a recurring theme among FCA speakers as of late). Malikie pointed out key Bible verses and used them to advise us to really let God have it!!! Yell at Him, get angry - turn over ALL our troubles to God!

FYI - Malikie admitted to praying even in the shower.
"Hey, Holy Spirit, please pass my shampoo!" :-)

Here are the verses that Malikie highlighted in his discussion with us...
(Bust out the Good Book, and look these up!)
Psalm 31
Isaiah 40: verses 3 and 10-11
Matthew 3:2-3
Luke 12:32 and 17:21
Romans 12:17
John 14:27
Philippians 4:6-7
Luke 17:21


1 In you, O LORD, I have taken refuge;
let me never be put to shame;
deliver me in your righteousness.

2 Turn your ear to me,
come quickly to my rescue;
be my rock of refuge,
a strong fortress to save me.

3 Since you are my rock and my fortress,
for the sake of your name lead and guide me.

4 Free me from the trap that is set for me,
for you are my refuge.

5 Into your hands I commit my spirit;
redeem me, O LORD, the God of truth.

6 I hate those who cling to worthless idols;
I trust in the LORD.

7 I will be glad and rejoice in your love,
for you saw my affliction
and knew the anguish of my soul.

8 You have not handed me over to the enemy
but have set my feet in a spacious place.

9 Be merciful to me, O LORD, for I am in distress;
my eyes grow weak with sorrow,
my soul and my body with grief.

10 My life is consumed by anguish
and my years by groaning;
my strength fails because of my affliction, [a]
and my bones grow weak.

11 Because of all my enemies,
I am the utter contempt of my neighbors;
I am a dread to my friends—
those who see me on the street flee from me.

12 I am forgotten by them as though I were dead;
I have become like broken pottery.

13 For I hear the slander of many;
there is terror on every side;
they conspire against me
and plot to take my life.

14 But I trust in you, O LORD;
I say, "You are my God."

15 My times are in your hands;
deliver me from my enemies
and from those who pursue me.

16 Let your face shine on your servant;
save me in your unfailing love.

17 Let me not be put to shame, O LORD,
for I have cried out to you;
but let the wicked be put to shame
and lie silent in the grave. [b]

18 Let their lying lips be silenced,
for with pride and contempt
they speak arrogantly against the righteous.

19 How great is your goodness,
which you have stored up for those who fear you,
which you bestow in the sight of men
on those who take refuge in you.

20 In the shelter of your presence you hide them
from the intrigues of men;
in your dwelling you keep them safe
from accusing tongues.

21 Praise be to the LORD,
for he showed his wonderful love to me
when I was in a besieged city.

22 In my alarm I said,
"I am cut off from your sight!"
Yet you heard my cry for mercy
when I called to you for help.

23 Love the LORD, all his saints!
The LORD preserves the faithful,
but the proud he pays back in full.

24 Be strong and take heart,
all you who hope in the LORD.

Christianity 101

This comes from Eugene Kang, who volunteers with
The Outreach Ministry within the Korean Church at Cornell English Ministry

This is a two-part event to help non-Christians
become more knowledgeable of the Faith:

Open seminar/forum where non-Christians ask questions about Christianity.
For instance, “Do all Christians hold certain political beliefs?”
“How do we know the Bible is true?” “Why does God allow evil in the world?”

A worship service also geared towards non-Christians;
this includes a sermon delivered by a local pastor.

HOW WE CAN HELP: Get the word out, start talking to your
non-Christian friends and see what questions they may have.
Encourage folks to come.
Volunteers are needed from each fellowship to help organize the event,
to help advertise by tabling, flyering, chalking, etc.
before the event and volunteers are needed
to help with the actual event: ushers, praise team, people to pray.

DATE OF EVENT: Saturday October 14th
TIME: 3:30-5:30 pm for the seminar and 7:00-9:00 pm for the worship service.

The Outreach Ministry within the Korean Church at Cornell English Ministry.
Contact leaders Ji Yun Lee ( or
Eugene Kang ( if you are interested.
