Don't know if I can put this in the poetry section (because it's not my work), but I wanted to share this poem I found.


Footprints in the Sand

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 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 happened at the very lowest and saddest times of his life.

This really bothered him, 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've 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."
