Faithfulness of God

Footprints In The Sand
One night a man had a dream. He dreamt that he was walking along a beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed the scenes of his life. For each scene he noticed not one, but two sets of footprints in the sand.

He understood immediately that one belonged to him and the other to the Lord. But then he noticed a curious thing. At the lowest and saddest times in his life there was only one set of footprints.

This bothered him and so he asked the Lord: “How come that during the most difficult times in my life, the very times when I needed you, you left me on my own?”

Then the Lord replied: “My friend, during your trials and sufferings when you see only one set of footprints, those footprints are mine. It was then that I carried you.”

You’ll Never Walk Alone
When you walk through the storm

Hold your head up high,
And don’t be afraid of the dark.
At the end of the storm
Is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark.
Walk on through the wind,
Walk on through the rain,
Though your dreams be tossed and blown.
Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone.
You’ll never walk alone.
— Oscar Hammerstein II, American lyricist, writer and producer (1895 – 1960) from Rodgers and Hammerstein 1945 hit musical Carousel.
