One night I had a dream.
I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord,
And across the sky flashed scenes of my life.
For each scene I noticed
two sets of footprints in the sand.
One belonging to me
and the other belonging to the Lord.
When the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked 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 very lowest and saddest times of my life.
One set of footprients in the sand,
Lord you promised me you'd hold my hand,
tell me why during the troubled times
that I look back and only find,
One set of foot prints in the sand
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 noticed that during the most
troublesome times of my life
there is only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why in times
when I needed you the most,
you would leave me".
The Lord replied,
"My precious, precious child,
I love you and I would never leave you
during the times of your trials and sufferings.
When you saw only one set of footprints-
It was then that I carried you".
One set of Foot Prints in the sand,
Oh Yes at last I understand,
through every storm He carried me,
Now I praise the Lord each time I see,
One set of foot prints in the Sand.
