This is my video interpretation of

Footprints In The Sand, The Immortal Poem by Mary Stevenson


Footprints In The Sand

Last night I had a dream. I dreamed I was walking along the beach
with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene,
I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonged to me,
the other to the 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
my 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."

The Lord replied, "My son, my precious child, I love you and I would
never leave you. During your times of suffering, when you could see
only one set of footprints,

It was then that I carried you."
