One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
I noticed footprints in the sand;
sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
sometimes there was only one set.
So I said to the Lord,
“You promised me that if I followed You,
You would walk with me always.
But during the most trying periods of my life
there was only one set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed You most, did You abandon me?”
The Lord replied,
“My precious child, it was at those times
that you became a real downer to be around
and honestly I kind of lost interest.”
