Footprints(on a very hard week)


Recommended Posts

On such a tough week it can be so easy to feel like the Lord is not here for us. It is always good to remember He is. May He carry us all through this very hard time.


One night a man had a dream.

He dreamt he was walking with the Lord.

Across the sky flashed scenes of his life.

For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand;

one belonged 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 had happened at the

very lowest and saddest times in his life.

This really bothered the man 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 leave me."

The Lord replied,

"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."

Thanks you so much for posting this and reminding us that God is here for us. This has been such a painful and discouraging week for all of us. I pray that God will grant peace to all who are suffering.
