Footprints

One night a man had a dream,
He dreamed he was walking along
the beach with the Lord. Across
the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene, he noticed two sets of
footprints in the sand: one
belonging to him, and the other
to the Lord.

When the last scene of his life flashed
before him, he looked
back at the footprints in the sand.
He noticed that many times along the
path of his life there was only one
set of footprints. He also noticed that
it happened at the very lowest and
saddest times in his life.
This really bothered him and
he questioned the Lord about it.
"Lord, you said that once I decided
to follow you, you'd walk with me
all the way. But I have noticed that
during the most troublesome times
in my life, there is only one set of
footprints. I don't understand why
when I needed you most you
would leave me."

The Lord replied, "My precious child,
I love you and I would never leave
you. During your times of trial
and suffering, when you see
only one set of footprints,
it was then that
I carried you."
