One night a man had a dream.
He dreamt 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, 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 in the sand
it was then that i carried you."
