As a child, I would see this famous poem on my grandparent’s refrigerator each time I would visit.   I remember a sense of peace and calm wash over me each time that I would read it.  No matter what you are going through today, no matter the depths of your anguish, God sees you. He loves you. He cares deeply for you. He longs to hold you in His arms and give you the comfort and rest your weary soul is desperately longing for. Bring to Him your pain, and your struggles, no matter how big or small.   Today, this poem is still my favorite poem, as it is a continuous reminder that I have not taken a single step in this life on my own.  My lord and savior Jesus Christ, has carried me each and every step of the way!

Footprints in the Sand

by, Carolyn Joyce Carty

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 in 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 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 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.”
