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 noticedthat 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 duringthe 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.»
