FOOTPRINT IN THE SAND


I was walking into my kitchen just a few moments ago and the poem “Footprints in the Sand” by Mary Stevenson popped into my head. Out of thin air, from nowhere, for no particular reason. Or was there.
At first I shrugged it off but then I got chills and decided I’d better pay attention. I’m not an over religious person, I have my faith, I believe in God, and I believe there is a greater force out there guiding us through this game of life. But I do not preach my faith to others, I usually keep that part of my life pretty personal.
However I felt the need to write to you about “Footprints in the Sand”. The poem in case you have never heard it or perhaps forgot the words here  it is:
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.”
