FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND.


One night I dreamed a dream.
I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from 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 one set of footprints.

This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
When I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.

So I said to the Lord,
"You promised me Lord,
that if I follow 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 me? "

The Lord replied,
"The times when you have 
seen only one set of footprints,
is when I carried you.
