One night a man had a dream.

He dreamed he was walking along

the beach with the LORD.

Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.

For each scene,

He noticed two sets of footprints in the sand;

one belonging 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 life,

there was only one set of footprints.

He also noticed that it happened at the very

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 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.
