Foot Prints in The Sand ..

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 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. "
