Your Word Is A Lamp...

Footprints In The Sand...
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 of his life.
This really bothered him and he questioned the
LORD about it:
"LORD you said that once I decided to follow
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 the times of trial and suffering,
when you see only one set of footprints, it was then
that I carried you."

I can't even read this poem aloud without crying:)
Psalms 119:105 - Your word is a lamp unto my feet and a light for my path.
That's the word of the week, in this house.
The truth of His word is eternal and good.
The truth of His word shall carry us through.
When we grow weary and weak,
our hearts will cling to the truth of His word.
Enrich your life with the truth of His word & Be blessed!
