One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. As scenes of his life flashed before Him, he noticed that there were two sets of footprints in the sand. He also noticed at his saddest, lowest times there was one set of footprints. This bothered the man and he asked the Lord 'did you not promise that if I gave my heart to you that you'd be with me all the way? Then why is there only one set of footprints during my most troublesome times?' The Lord replied, 'My precious, precious child, I love you and would never forsake you. During those times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.'
