Footprints in the Sand Graphics



I Had a Dream

One night I had a dream

I was walking along the beach with my Lord.

Across the sky flashed scenes from my life.

For each scene I noticed two sets

of footprints in the sand,

one belonging to me

and the other to my Lord.

When the last scene of my life shot before me

I looked back at the footprints in the sand.

There was only on set of footprints.

I realized that this was at the lowest

and saddest times in my life.

This always bothered me

and I questioned the Lord

about my dilemma.

“Lord, you told me when I decided to follow You,

You would walk and talk with me all the way.

But I’m aware that during the most troublesome

times of my life there is only one set of footprints.

I don’t understand why, when I needed You most,

you leave me.”

He whispered,  “My precious, precious child,

I love you and will never leave you

never, ever during your times of trial and testings.

When you saw only one set of footprints

It was then that I carried you.”
