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 child, 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
