MEET MY FRIEND
My Friend Guide’s me,
Protect’s me, Loves me,
and helps me get through everything.
He can be your friend also.
When the road you’re traveling on seems difficult,
let him be your friend.
His love is always with you.
He will help carry you through,
as the poem Footprints states.
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 belonged 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 in 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 precious, 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.
