is one of my favorite poems of all times. I often look to this when I am in need
"One night I had a dream...
I dreamed I was walking along the beach
with the Lord, and Across the sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene I
noticed two sets of footprints in the sand. One belonged to me, and the other
to the Lord. When the last scene of my life flashed before us, I looked back at
the footprints in the sand. I noticed that many times along the path of my
life, there was only one set of footprints.
I also noticed that it happened at the
very lowest and saddest times in my life This really bothered me, and I
questioned the Lord about it. "Lord, you said that once I decided to
follow you, You would 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 in times when I needed you the most, you should leave me.
The Lord replied, "My precious,
precious child. I love you, and I would never, never leave you during your
times of trial and suffering. When you saw only one set of footprints, It was
then that I carried you."
doesn’t matter if God is walking beside me or if he is carrying me, I know my God
is always with me.
