Footprints in the Sand

by Mary Stevenson

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed
he was walking along the beach with the LORD.

Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene he noticed two sets of
footprints in the sand: one belonging
to him, and the other to the LORD.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
he looked back at the footprints in the sand.

He noticed that many times along the path of
his life there was only one set of footprints.

He also noticed that it happened at the very
lowest and saddest times in his life.

This really bothered him and he
questioned the LORD 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
troublesome 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.”

The LORD replied:
“My son, my precious child,
I love you and I would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering,
when you see only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you.”

  1. 这篇文章我看了老半天,也不知道是不是理解了…
    LORD是这个man的father吗?还有footprints是什么意思,是足迹的意思吗?
    I carry you 是我想你的意思吗?
    人的一生都会有终点,而人的变故会让亲人失去依靠,感到孤单.但只要精神支柱尤在,相信亲人会永远在你的身边…
    EN–文章贯串的主要中心是不是这个意思啊?
