Footprints in the Sand

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 belonging
to 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 of
his life there was only one set of footprints.

He also noticed that it happened at the very
lowest and saddest times in his life.

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 don't understand why when
I 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."

Love this poem and I can say it very true, for GOD been carring me since John's passed away, he gave back my daughter to me, along with friends, some of the friends I didn't even have until John passed away, so I know GOD is watching and carring me thru these days when I just dont' want to go any futher.

thanks for posting

This is my fathers favorite poem. He shared this with me during one of my darkest times and it's stayed with me for years. I had never heard it until he shared it with me.
