One night I had a dream. I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the LORD and across the sky flashed scenes from my life.For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand:one was mine and the other was the LORD`S.
When the last scene om my life appeared before me, I looked back at the footprints in the sand and to my surprise, I noticed that many times along the path of my life there was only one set of footprints. I also noticed that it was the lowest and saddest times in my life.
I asked the LORD about it:”LORD you said that once I decided to follow you, you would walk with me all the way. But I notice that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don`t understand why you left me when I needed you most.”
The LORD said:”My precioius child, I love you…I never left you during your times of trial and suffering. When you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I was carrying you.
