62 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, 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 saddest and lowest 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. “My
precious, 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”.
