One night a man had a dream.
He dreamed he waswalking along the beach with the Lord.
Across thesky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene, henoticed two sets
of footprints in the sand: onebelonging to him, and the other to the Lord.
Whenthe last scene of his life flashed before him,
helooked back at the footprints in the sand.
He noticed that many times along the path
of his lifethere was only one set of footprints.
He also noticedthat it happened at the very lowest
and saddesttimes in his life.
This really bothered him and hequestioned the Lord about it.
"Lord, You said thatonce I decided to follow you,
You'd walk with me allthe way.
But I have noticed that during the
mosttroublesome times in my life,
there is only one setof 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 wouldnever leave you.
During your times of trial andsuffering,
when you see only one set of footprints, itwas then that I Carried You."
