One night I had a dream
I dreamed I was walking along the beach
with the Lord and across the sky flashed
scenes from my life. For 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
very lowest and saddest 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 have noticed that during
the most troublesome times in my life
there is only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why in times when I
needed you most, you should leave
The Lord replied, "My precious, precious
child, I love you and I would never,
never leave you during your times of
trail and suffering.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you."
