Footprints in the Sand

One night I had a dream –

I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord
and across the sky flashed scenes from my life.

For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints,
one belonged to me and the other to the Lord.

When the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.

I noticed that many times along the path of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.

I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest
and saddest times in my life.

This really bothered me and I questioned the Lord about it.

“Lord, you said that once I decided to follow You,
You would walk with me all the way,
but I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life
there was only one set of footprints.
I don’t understand why in times when I needed You most, You should leave me.”

The Lord replied,
“My precious, precious child,
I love you and I would never, never leave you
during your times of trial and suffering.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you.”
