There are times in life where we find ourselves in need for words of encouragement and strength. Life has its many surprises and roller coasters. It’s true that we never expect such things to happen to us especially if they are not interesting or good things. But when something does eventually happen you can never do anything about it. I realized even more that Jesus has given us the amazing gift of salvation but He didn’t stop there. He gave us Himself to walk beside our every step.
1 Peter 2:21 / 37 For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps.
Isaiah 41:10 / 23 Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand
Footprints in the Sand One night I had a dream… I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord, and Across the sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; One belonged to me, and the other to the Lord. When the last scene of my life flashed before us, I looked back at the footprints in the sand. I noticed that many times along the path of my life, There was only one set of footprints. I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in my life This really bothered me, and I questioned the Lord about it. “Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, You would 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 in times when I needed you the most, you should leave me. The Lord replied, “My precious, precious child. I love you, and I would never, never leave you during your times of trial and suffering. When you saw only one set of footprints, It was then that I carried you.”
