One night a man had a dream. 
He dreamed he was walking across 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 in my life, 
there is only one set of footprints. 
I don't understand why, when I needed 
You the most You would leave me."
"My son, my precious child, I love you and 
would never leave you. During your times of 
trial and suffering, when you see only one 
set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."
