Trust Me

One night a man had a dream,

He dreamed he was walking along

the 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 flashed before him,

he looked back at the footprints in the sand.

He notice many times in his life there was

only one set of footprints.

He also noticed that it happened to be at

the very lowest and saddest times in his life.

This really bothered him and

he questioned the LORD about it.

"LORD, you said 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 the most

You would leave me."

The LORD replied:

"My son, 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."
