Footprints In The Sand - Poem by Maia Padua
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 One belongs 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 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'
