More Footsteps In The Sand




More Footsteps In The Sand



One night a young girl had a dream.
She dreamed she was walking along
the beach with the Lord.


Across the dark sky flashed scenes from her life.
For each scene, she noticed
two sets of footprints in the sand,
one belonging to her and the other to the Lord.








When the last scene of her life flashed before her,
she looked back at the footprints in the sand.
Se noticed that many times along the path of her life
there was only one set of footprints.
She also noticed that it happened at the
very lowest and saddest times in her life.
This bothered her and she 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 precious, precious child,
I love you and would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering,
when you see only one set of footprints in the sand,
it was then that I carried you."

Was the little girl a Muslim? (english)
14 Nov 2003
Her parents should have protected her from the Satan's religion of Islam. I pray for her soul.
