Footprints

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 his 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.”
