One night I had a dream. I was
walking along a beach with the Lord,
and across the sky flashed scenes
from my life. In each scene,
I noticed two sets of footprints,
side by side in the sand.
One was mine and one was the Lord's.
When the last scene of my life
appeared before me, I looked back,
and to my surprise, I saw that
during the lowest
and saddest times of my life, there
was only one set of footprints!
"Lord", I cried, "you said that once I
decided to follow you, you would walk
beside me all the way.
But during the most troublesome times
in my life there is only one set
of footprints. I don't understand
why you left my side
when I needed you the most."
The Lord turned and looked at me,
His eyes filled with love,
"My precious child," He said,
"I have never left you.
During your times of trial, where
you only see one set of footprints,
that was when I was carrying you."
