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 of 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 precious, precious child,
I love you and I would 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."
