Footprints (religious)

One night a woman had a dream. She dreamed she was walking along the
beach with God. Across the sky flashed scenes from her life. For each
scene, she noticed two sets of footprints in the sand, one belonging
to her, and the other to God.

When the last scene of her life flashed before her, she looked back at
the footprints in the sand. She noticed that many times along the path
of her life there was only one set of footprints in the sand. She also
noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times of her
life. This really bothered her and she questioned God 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 difficult 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."

God replied, "My precious child, I love you and would never leave you.
During your times of suffering, when you see only one set of
footprints, it was then that I carried you."
