In Times...

"My child, my precious child
I love you
and I would never leave you...
During the times
When you see
only one sets of footprints,
it was then
that I carried you!"

Sounds familiar??? you got it! yes! these are taken from the famous "FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND" piece. Im so amaze on this simple story. Infact, there was once... along my life's journey, time when I got burdens so heavy, when my life was in the dark and miserable, when I experienced as if the world falls down on me, when it felt no one cares at all, everything was doomed and senseless! I was so down and all I saw was darkness!

Then out from nowhere.., came the song 'footprints in the sand'. Narration said; " My child.. my precious child..." as the narration continues, my closed mind opened up! my disturbed mind went arranged suddenly! It seemed my heart crumpled and I forgot where I was, I cried like a baby.., like a child sobbing on her father's shoulder, word for word from the song continued hitting me. Then I realized, I was on the public jeepney:) people/commuters looked at me, different reactions; some pitiful, some sarcastic, but I didnt cared anyway as far as I remember, I continued crying my burdens out! It was really great!That moment lightened up everything in me!

Yes! its true! we believe that theres always someone with us, besides us, and if its shown in a footprints, there should be two sets of footprints, one belongs to you and the other to that someone and it feels great!And we believe he'll walk with us all the way. But In times of troubles, when we needed them the most, and we'll see only one set of footprints, what will you feel??? Of course fears and disappointments because we will think we are alone, we'll think only our footprints remains... but then when we go back to the story... it actually states that its not our footprints that we saw...

"The Lord said... during your times of trials and sufferings... and you see only one sets of footprints, it was then... that I CARRIED YOU!"

Hello Janet.

Aray ko. Parang naiiyak naman ako. Footprints in the sand is such a very touching piece of art in words. I love everything about it as it helps me reflect and that it reminds me that I am not alone... never alone.

Ingat lagi. Hope to see you in person. Hugs!

Very inspiring post. Yes, in times of trials and distress, the Lord carries us on His wings as He soars above the storms of our lives. He promised never to leave us nor forsake us and that's what He does in our times of sorrow. Thanks for the very inspiring post. God bless you all always.
