Footprints

Posted by destiny on January 1, 2010 in Poetry |

“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 in the sand
is when I carried you.”
~Mary Stevenson
