One night I had a dream.
I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the 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 the LORD.
When the last scene of my life flashed before me,
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'd walk with me all the way.
But 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."
