A man walked upon the shore
With the Lord in a dream one night.
The story of his past unfolded
And he was touched by the awesome sight.
With each scene set out before him
There were footprints in the sand
One's belonging to himself,
The other's to his guiding hand.
However when the man looked back
As the last scene did unfold,
He saw something in the sand
That made his heart grow cold.
And so he turned unto the Lord
There walking by his side.
With heavy heart asked the question
That would not be denied.
"Lord you said if I trusted in you
There'd be nothing I'd face on my own.
Yet at the times I needed you most
You left me to walk alone.
Though at times in my life I can see
Two sets of footprints in the sand,
In all my darkest hours there's only one
Why Lord-I don,t understand"?
"My dear child" the Lord answered of him
"Doubt not, what I promised is true.
If ever life's journey is too much to bear.
That's when with LOVE I carry you through"
I wrote this based on the famous FOOTPRINTS.
