FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND

                                                           Lines I couldn’t stop sharing,

One night I dreamt,

I was walking along the beach

With the lord.

Many scenes from my life,

Flashed across the sky.

In each scene I noticed footprints,

In the sand.

Sometimes there were

Two sets of footprints,

Other time there were

One set of footprints.

 

This bothered me because I noticed,

That during the low periods of my life,

When I was suffering from,

Anguish, sorrow or defeat,

I could see only one set of footprints.

 

So I said to the Lord,

“You promised me lord,

That if I followed you,

You would walk with me always.

But I have noticed that during,

The most trying periods of my life,

There have only been one,

Set of footprints in the sand.

Why, when I needed you most,

You have not been there for me? ”

 

The lord replied,

“The times when you have

Seen only one set of footprints’

Is when I carried you.”
