Footprints in the Sand

This is a famous story specially in Christian Communities. This has inspired many people already all throughout the globe. Actually the author is already untraceable but as far as I know, a Filipino wrote this story when he thought that all was lost in his life, having struck with a great tragedy, he asked God why such tragedy befall on him, and it was then that God talk to him by inspiring him to write a story. Years later, another person added music to the words and thus more and more people got blessed with it. If you happen to know this song, sing to it while reading the story. If you don't, good thing, may God bless everyone who read this.

Last night I had a dream. I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonged to me, the other to the Lord.

After the last scene of my life flashed before me, I looked back at the footprints in the sand. I noticed that at many times along the path of my life, especially at the very lowest and saddest times, there was only one set of footprints.

This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it. “Lord, you said once I decided to follow you, You’d walk with me all the way. But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life, there was only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why, when I needed You the 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 suffering, when you could see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.”
