Footprints In the Sand

One night I dreamed a dream.
I was walking along the beach with my Lord.
Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene,, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand, one belong to me and one to my Lord.
When the last of my life shot before me, I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I realized that this was at the lowest and saddest times of 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 child, I love you and will never leave you, never ever, during your times of trials and testings.
When you saw only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.”
