Footprints in the Sand

One 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 were

one set of footprints.

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 have

only been one set of

footprints in the sand.

Why, when I needed you most, you have not been

there for me?”

The Lord replied,

“The times when you have

seen only one set of footprints,

is when I carried you.”
