"Never Walk Alone"

I Peter 5: 7
Casting all your care upon him;
for he careth for you.

You Never Alone

In 1980 I came across this article in a little booklet called "Our Daily Bread". I loved the story so I cut it out and placed in my Bible. At the time when I first read this article, I was going through some great trials and changes in my life. I hope you will read it and receive a great blessing as I did so many years ago.

Carried By God

The Lord knows all about our griefs and troubles and is deeply touched by them. The prophet said of God and His people, "In all their affliction He was afflicted." When Jesus was here on earth, His loving heart too was filled with compassion for needy individuals. And still today He sustains us in our times of crisis.

An unknown author has recorded this comforting and enlightening story: "One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord. Many scenes from my life flashed before me. In each one I noticed footprints in the sand. Sometimes there were two sets, but at other times there was only one. This bothered me because I noted that during periods of depression, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow, or severe testing, I could see only a single set. So I prayed in my distress, 'You promised, Lord, that if I followed You, You`d walk with me always. But I`ve noticed that during the most trying periods of my life, there has been just one set of prints in the sand. Why, when I needed You most, haven`t You been with me?' To which the lord replied, 'The times when only ONE set of footprints were made, My child, were the times I CARRIED you!'"

Yes, believer, in your moments of crisis, the Good Shepherd will bear you up in His everlasting arms (Dt. 33:27). No matter how deep the waters of trouble may be, God`s promise is sure: "...they shall not overflow thee" (Isa. 43:12). He`ll carry you through the rising current and bring you safely to the high plateau of His comforting peace and sheltering love.

God the Eternal is your refuge,
Let Him still your wild alarms;
Underneath your deepest sorrow
Are His everlasting arms.

THOT: God never sends a heavy burden to weigh us down without offering His mighty arms to lift us up.
