I was at the grocery store this morning and heard a loud crash and something shattering. Being nosy, I walked towards the sound and saw some people whispering and looking back to the end of the next aisle. When I walked down that aisle, I saw an older lady had hit a shelf containing dishes with her cart and many had fallen to the ground and broke. She was kneeling on the floor embarrassed, frantically picking up the shattered pieces, while her husband was peeling off the bar code from each broken dish saying “Now we will have to pay for all this!”
I felt so bad for her, and everyone was just standing there staring at her!! I went and knelt beside her and told her not to worry and started helping her pick up the broken pieces. After about a minute, the store manager came and knelt beside us and said, “Leave it, we will clean this up. Let’s get your information so you can go to the hospital and have that cut on your hand looked at.”
The lady, totally embarrassed said, “I need to pay for all this first.” The manager smiled, helped her to her feet and said, “No ma’am, we have insurance for this, you do not have to pay anything!”
For you who have read this so far, I would like you to give me a minute. Wherever you are, close your eyes, and imagine God doing the same for you!
Collect the pieces of your broken heart from all the blows life has thrown at you. God will heal all your wounds, and I assure you that your sins and mistakes will be forgiven.
You see, we all have the same insurance, and it’s called Grace. When you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and ask for forgiveness, the Manager of the universe, GOD, will say to you “Everything has already been paid for, now go on your way, all is forgiven!”
“Blessed be the Name of the Lord, blessed be His Name. All praise, honor, and glory to the Most High God for He is the Mighty One who all shall bow before.
Let not the blemishes of sin encapsulate the heart. Repentance, oh so sweet, when it comes forth from the heart. Let our sins be as open wounds, uncovered. Let the healing balm of Gilead sooth.
The sins of the world lay barren in the desert. The sun brings the vultures from the floors of hell. Kings will fall, lands will perish, for repentance lay dead as a jackal starved of food.
No man shall live with no water, no child born with no milk. All shall perish in the days to come for only One can save them.
Repent all you who desire life. Repent all you who care. Who care that all may see the Light, the Light of eternity.”

One day as I bowed upon bended knees,
I looked to Calvary, and Jesus I did see.
A crown of thorns upon His head,
And nails in His hands and feet,
Oh how He bled.
I said, Jesus, save me from my sins.
And now in my heart, He lives within.
I felt nothing but love that day
As Jesus came into my heart in a special way.
One day I will walk the streets of gold,
Because someone cared enough
And the plan of salvation I was told.
Glory to God on High
For one day I shall meet Him in the sky.
