Footprints in the Sand – Mary Stevenson
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 have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life there have only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, you have not been there for me?’
The Lord replied, ‘The times when you have seen only one set of footprints in the sand, is when I carried you.’
Many of us have felt this way at some point in our lives…alone & forgotten, but Deuteronomy 31:6…. The Lord declares He will never leave you nor forsake you & that in all things, He goes before you. Be encouraged when you are faced with trials & unfavorable situations. The will of God will never lead you where His grace won’t protect you. Know that He is always with you. He is OMNIPRESENT.
