One night I had a dream. I was walking along the beach with the Lord
and across the sky flashed scenes from my life. In 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 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 worst 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’ve noticed that during times of trouble 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, precious child, I love you and I would never, 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.”
