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: one belonging 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 also 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
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."
