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 of 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 precious, 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.

2 Sarah R = "Sometimes when we are going through hard times it can feel like God has left us. Often the reason we feel that way is because we have let our circumstances surround us and we are so focused on them that we lose sight of God. He does not leave us. He is always with us. Those who learn that and who draw close to God in their hardships instead of pulling away from Him come out of the hardships stronger in faith and in character."
3 Sarah R = "Scriptures:The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. - Dt 31:8I am with you always, to the end of the age. - Matthew 28:20b"
