One night, a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along a beach with the Lord. Across the sky; flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand — one belonging to him, and the other; to the Lord.
When the last scene had flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints and noticed that many times along the path; there was only one set of footprints in the sand. He also noted that this happened during the lowest and saddest times of his life.
This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord. “Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you would walk all the way. But I noticed during the most troublesome times of my life, there was only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why when I needed you most, you deseted me.”
The Lord replied, “My Dear Child, I love you and I would never leave you, during your times of trial and suffering, you see only one set of footprints, because it was then that I carried you.”
