Footprints in the Sand
One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there was only one set of footprints.
This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods in my life,
when I was suffering from anguish, sorry or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord, "You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you, you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during the most trying periods in life
there have only been one set of footprints in the sand.
Why when I needed you most, you have not been there for me?"
The Lord replied, "The times when you have seen
only one set of footprints in the sand, is when I carried you."
