Foot Prints

Foots prints identifies ones foot marks, its a symbolic mark of a persons life story. The poem about foot prints in the sand is very remarkable to remember and should be applied in our daily lives. A poem that enlightened ones mind that God is always there more in our deepest sorrow moments carrying us. Lets not stop following Gods path.

In everyday life we meet people along the way, some people stay but some dont but leaving some footprints. Some leaves unpleasant marks some leaves delightful experience that we cherish. But God's marks is always steady he never forsake us but always stay.

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed
he was walking along 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 most you would leave me."

The LORD replied:

"My son, my precious child,
I love you and I 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."
