As I was walking down life's highway, many years ago, I came upon a sign that read, "Heavens Grocery Store”…,

When I got a little closer, the doors swung open wide, and I soon found myself standing 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 human needed was in that grocery store. What you could not carry, you could come back later for.

First I got some Patience. Love was in that same row. Further down was Understanding. You need that everywhere you go.

I got a box or two of Wisdom, and Faith a bag or two, and Charity - of course - I would need some of that, too.

I couldn't miss the Holy Ghost; it was all over the place. Then some Strength and Courage to help me run this race.

My basket was getting full!

Then I remembered I needed Grace. I chose Salvation for salvation was for free. I tried to get enough of that to do for you and me.

Then I started to the counter to pay my grocery bill. I thought I had everything to do the Master’s Will.

As I went up the aisle I saw Prayer and put that in, for I knew when I stepped outside I would run into sin.

Peace and Joy were plentiful, the last things on the shelf. Song and Praise were hanging near, so I just helped myself.

Then I said to the angel, “Now, how much do I owe?”

He smiled and said, "Just take them everywhere you go.”

Again I asked, "Really now, how much do I owe?”

"My child," he said, "God paid your bill a long, long time ago.”

Remember…The Will of God will never take you...

Where the grace of God cannot keep you,

Where the arms of God cannot support you,

Where the hands of God cannot mold you.

Where the power of God cannot endow you

The Will of God will never take you...

Where the spirit of God cannot work through you,

Where the riches of God cannot supply you,

Where the wisdom of God cannot teach you,

Where the army of God cannot protect you.

The Will of God will never take you...

Where the love of God cannot enfold you,

Where the mercy of God cannot sustain you,

Where the Word of God cannot feed you,

Where the authority of God cannot overrule for you.

The Will of God will never take you…

Where the comfort of God cannot dry your tears,

Where the peace of God cannot calm your fears,

Where the miracles of God cannot be done for you,

Where the omnipresence of God cannot find you.

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2 NASB

Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Matthew 6:10 NASB
