One Set of Footprints
One night a man had a dream.He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord.Across the sky he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,one belonged 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 happens at the 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 of 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 precious child,I love you and I would never leave you.During your time of trial and suffering,when you see only one set of footprints,it was then that I carried you.”
