Footprints

One night I had a dream.
I dreamed I was walking along the beach with God
and across the sky flashed scenes from my life.

For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,
One belonged to me, the other to God.

When the last scene of my life flashed before us,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.

I noticed, that many times along the path of 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 God about it.

“God, you said that once I decided to follow you, You
would walk with me all the way, but I noticed that
during the most troublesome time in my life, there
is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why in
times when I needed you most, you would leave me.”

God replied, “My precious precious child, I Love You
and I would never never leave you during your times of trials & suffering.
When you see only one set of footprints it was then that I carried you.”
