Footprints in the Sand..
.....we have some problems in our lives, maybe you read somewhere along the way that Jesus will never leave us nor forsake us, but if we look back in life, sometimes in the lowest point in our life we almost see one footprints in the sand.
Do you have days where you feel lonely, un-loved, and not wanted? We all experience days like that, don't we? When I'm feeling down and lonely, I always turn to God in prayer.
God has recently carried me through one of the toughest times in my life so far and this poem reminds me of His eternal and unending love for me, for us all, and especially for the sinner and the one who turns his back on the Lord
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 was one only.
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 has only been one set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
The Lord replied,
“The years when you have seen only one set of footprints, my child, is when I carried you.”
.....Very touching. My brothers and sisters when you could no longer carry yourself the Lord will carry you.
.....God is always with you and gets you through the rough times. You may feel alone during those times but you never are.
.....Never give up on Jesus like he never gave up on you.
