Footprints

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 the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of my life flashed before me,
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 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 most, you
should leave me."
The lord replied, "My precious, precious child, I love you and I
would never, never leave you during your time of trial
and suffering
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you."
