Favorite Poem

"One Set of Footprints"

 

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 belonging to me and one to my Lord.

When the last scene of my life shot before me

I looked back at the footprints in the sand.

There was only one set of footprints in the sand.

I realized that this was at the lowest and saddest time 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 just 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 trials and testings.

When you saw only one set of footprints

it was then that I carried you."
