Footprints in the sand Poem:
One night I had a dream, As I was walking along the beach with my Lord.
Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene, I noticed two sets of foot prints in the sand, One belonging to me and one to my Lord.
After the last scene of my life flashed before me, I looked back at the footprints in the sand. I noticed that at many times along the path of life, especially at the very lowest and saddest times, there was only one set of footprints.
This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it. Lord, You said once I decided to follow you,
You'd walk with me all the way. But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life, there was only one set of footprints. I don't understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me."
He whispered,
My precious child, I love you and I will never leave you, Never, ever, during your trials and testing. When you saw only one set of footprints, It was then that I carried you.

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. -Matthew 11:28

Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In my Father's house are many mansions; If it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
- John 14:1

The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth in the paths of righteousness for his name sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
-Psalms 23
