    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 happened 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 when I needed You most.
    The Lord said, "My precious, precious child,

     I never left you during your time of trial.

     Where you see only one set of footprints,

     I was carrying you."
