FOOTSTEPS IN THE SAND: 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 of 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 son, 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.
