Inspire 23: Foot Prints

Foot Prints

Please READ the DISCLAIMER before you even THINK of writing me a rude letter.

Inspirational # 23

Imagine going to heaven and standing by God as He lovingly shows you His plan for your life. . . .You see footprints walking through each day of your life. On many of the days, two sets of footprints appear. You inquire: "Father, are those my footprints every day and is the second set of prints when you joined me?"
He answers, "No, My precious Child. The consistent footprints are Mine. The second set of footprints are when you joined Me."
"Where were You going, Father?"
"To the destiny I planned for you, hoping you'd follow."
"But, Father, where are my footprints all those times?"
"Sometimes you went back to look at old resentments and habit. Sometimes, you chose your own path. Other times, your footprints appear on another person's calendar because you liked their plan better. Sometimes, you simply stopped because you would not let go of something you could not take with you."
"But, Father, we ended up OK even if I didn't walk with You every day, didn't we?"

He holds you close and smiles, "Yes, Child, we ended up OK. But, you see, OK was never what I had in mind for you."
