Footprints in the Sand...

Posted by Cecile at Thursday, October 02, 2008
I love this poem;
It reminds me of the Lord being there for us all the time;
He would never leave!

One night a man had a dream.
He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the LORD.
Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene he noticed two sets offootprints in the sand:
one belongingto 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 ofhis life
there was only one set of footprints.
He also noticed that it happened
at the verylowest and saddest times in his life.

This really bothered him and hequestioned 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 mosttroublesome times in my life,
there is only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why whenI needed you most you would leave me."
The LORD replied:
"My son, my 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,
it was then that I carried you."
