When you feel defeted, pityful, lonely or sad,

when you see no light in the morning sky,

and only darkness appears on your eyes,

remember the Footprints in the sand.

Remember the care and company of the Lord

Who doesn’t let you walk alone,

who carries you on his arms

when you cannot walk anymore,

If you see a pair of footprints in the sand

remember whose they are.

They don’t belong to you at all

because you are held by the Lord’s love.

Written by Lola Velasco and inspired on …


Footprints by Mary Stevenson 1936

One night I dreamed a dream.

As I was walking along the beach with my Lord.

Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life.

For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,

One belonging to me and one to my 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.»

He whispered, «My precious child, I love you and will never leave you

Never, ever, during your trials and testings.

When you saw only one set of footprints,

It was then that I carried you.»
