FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND

My friend Ayesha and I had to work a wedding over the weekend in Phoenix. 
It was at a place called Encanto Park. The park was beautiful and had so many
spots to take some fun pictures. So I did! As I was editing the pictures and saw
the picture she took of my shoes, it reminded me of one of my favorite poems 
called Footprints In The Sand. We have this poem hanging in our guest bathroom
upstairs. It was sent to us as a "just because" gift from my Dad when we moved in.
I love its message...every time I read it, I can think of different times in my life when 
I have felt this way. He lifts us, He carries us, and He loves us more than we can imagine.
Trust in Him and let him carry you........


Footprints In The Sand

One night I had a dream...

I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord, and
Across the sky flashed scenes from my life.

For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand;
One belonged to me, and the other to the Lord.

When the last scene of my life flashed before us,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.

I noticed that many times along the path of my life,
There was only one set of footprints.

I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest
and saddest times in my life.

This really bothered me, and I questioned the Lord about it.

"Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
You would 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 in times when I
needed you the most, you should leave me.

The Lord replied, "My precious, precious
child. I love you, and I would never,
never leave you during your times of
trial and suffering.

When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you.
