One night I dreamed 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 times 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."
