Footprints in the Sand

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.”

-- Mary Stevenson
