Scenes from his life flashed across the sky and 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 had flashed before him, he recalled that at the lowest and saddest times of his life there was only one pair of footprints.
Dismayed, he asked,"Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. Why, at the troublesome times of my life; the times I needed you most, would you leave me?"
The Lord replied, "My precious, precious child, I love you and would never leave you. Durin your times of trial and suffering when you saw only one set of footprints... That was when I carried you."
