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 of footprints
in the sand; one set belonged to him, and
the other one 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 time along the path of
his life there was only one set of footprints.

This really bothered him and he questioned 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
most troublesome times in my life, there is
only one set of footprints. I really don’t under-
stand why, when I needed you the most, you
would leave me.”

The LORD replied,
My precious, 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.”
