One night I man had a dream. I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonging to me, and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of my life flashed before me, I looked back at the footprints. I noticed that many times along the path of my life there was only one set of footprints. I also noticed it happened at the very lowest and saddest times of my life.
This really bothered me and I 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 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."
