FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord. Many scenes of 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 were on set of footprints.

This bothered me because I noticed the low periods of my life, when I was suffering anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could only see 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 of my 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 wen you have seen only one set of footprints, is when I carried you."
