Walking with Jesus

One night I had a dream.
I dreamed I was walking along the
beach with the Lord, and across the
sky flashed scenes from my life. For
each scene, I noticed two sets of
footprints in the sand; one belonged
to me, and the other to the Lord.

When the last scene of my life
flashed before us, I looked back at
the footprints in the sand. I noticed
that many times along the path of
my life, there was only one set of
footprints. I, also, noticed that it
happened at the very lowest and
saddest times in my life. This
really bothered me, and I
questioned the Lord about it.

“Lord, You said that once I
decided to follow You, You would
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 precious,
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 in the sand,
it was then that I carried you.
