night I dreamed 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 was only one. 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 followed You, You would walk with me always. But I
have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life there has been only
one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I have needed You most, have You
not been there for me?"
The Lord replied, "The times when
you have seen only one set of footprints, my child, is when I carried you."
