Footprints in the Sand

This is a Very Famous Poem and the Author is Unknown

(although different people have claimed it to be theirs in the past)

When I read it, I thought it was really Inspirational!

I hope you do too!


One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints.
Other times there were one set of footprints.

This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life
When I was suffering from anguish, sorrow, or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.

So I said to the Lord, "You promised me, Lord,
That if I followed you, you would walk with me always.
But I noticed that during the most trying periods of my life
There have only been one set of prints in the sand.
Why, When I have needed you most, you have not been there for me?"

The Lord replied,
"The times when you have seen only one set of footprints
Is when I carried you."

My Prayer for you is that in your Times of Sorrow and when you are feeling Most Alone, that you will remember that God is with you and that you will turn to Him and take His Hand
