Footprints In The Sand

When I feel so weary and feel like the world just stumble down on me, the only place I could seek for peace, and comfort is the church. There I could tell all the things that bother me inside, I could cry my heart out and be at myself all at once. It indeed works for me because right after I got out from there, I suddenly just felt so light and compose. GOD is always there, HE listens to whatever I am telling HIM, it may be bad or good, he is there to cheers with you and comfort you when you are in your most difficult moments.

I was in the taxi cab on my way home last Friday, when I heard this song in the radio that the driver played on. The title of the song is the Footprints in the Sand, the lyrics then touch my heart; the message got me at that. I have heard this song for how many times but every time I listened to it, it always left me awed and stunned.

Footprints 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 was one only.
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 if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during the most trying periods
of my life, there has only been one set of footprints in the sand.
Why when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
The LORD replied,
“The years when you have seen only
one set of footprints,
my child, is when I carried you.”
