Footprints in the Sand

 In Christianity, Keyword / Quote

I first saw this in a newspaper – AG Times. Somehow, I was touched when I read it and went to search online. So just to believe in and have faith…

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.”
