Footsteps in the Sand

 author unknown, See below.

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,
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 your times of trial and suffering,
when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."

Many different people have claimed to be the author of the Footprints poem. Two of them, who seem to be the most frequently named candidates, are Margaret Fishback Powers and Mary Stevenson.

Margaret Fishback Powers has written a book called "The True Story Behind the Poem that Inspired Millions", in which she tells her story of the poem's creation in 1964, its loss and rediscovery. For more information on this book, go to http://www.harpercollins.com and look it up.

Others claim that Mary Stevenson was the original author - supposedly she wrote the poem in 1936, when she was 14 years old. For further information on this, go to http://www.wowzone.com/fpnews.htm or
