Footprints In The Sand


One night I had a dream. I was walking along the beach with the Lord, and across the skies flashed scenes from my life. In each scene I noticed two sets of footprints in the Sand.

 One was mine, and one was the Lord's.


When the last scene of my life appeared before me, I looked back at the footprints in the sand, and to my surprise, I noticed that many times along the path of my life there was only one set of footprints and I noticed that it was at the lowest and saddest times in my Life. I asked the Lord about it:


"Lord you said that once I decided to follow you, you would walk with me all the way. But I notice that during the most troublesome times in my life there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why you left my side.


"My precious child, I never left you during your time of trial. Where you see only one set of footprints, I was carrying you."
