Footprints

One night I had a dream.

I was walking along the beach with the Lord

and across the sky flashed

scenes from my life.

In each scene, I noticed

two sets of footprints

in the sand, one belonged to me,

and the other to the Lord.

When the last scene of my

life flashed before me,

I looked back at the

footprints in the sand.

I noticed that many

times along the path of my life

there was only

Footprints

One night I had a dream.

I was walking along the beach with the Lord

and across the sky flashed

scenes from my life.

In each scene, I noticed

two sets of footprints

in the sand, one belonged to me,

and the other to the Lord.

When the last scene of my

life flashed before me,

I looked back at the

footprints in the sand.

I noticed that many

times along the path of my life

there was only

one set of footprints.

I also noticed that it happened

at the worst times in my life.

This really bothered me and

I questioned the

LORD about it.

"LORD, you said that once

I decided to follow you, you would

walk with me all the way.

But I've noticed that

during times of trouble

there is only one set of footprints.

I don't understand why,

when I needed you most,

you would leave me."

The LORD replied,

"My precious, precious child, I love you and

I would never, never leave you

during your times of trial and suffering.

When you see only

one set of footprints,

it was then that I carried you."
