This has always have been one of my favourite poems..There is something reassuring abt it..each time i feel low, lost and lonely this comforts me with the assurance that god is never too far away!just a silent prayer and the belief that he will see you through…is enough to change every adversity..
for those who feel that life’s taken a turn for the worst and need some assurance go through this…for i m sure you’ll find comfort in these words! 🙂
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 in the sand,
is when I carried you.”
