FOOTPRINTS 

(Also Known As “I Had a Dream”)

One night I dreamed a dream.
I was walking along the beach with my Lord.

Across the dark sky, flashed scenes from my life.

For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,

one belonging to me and one to my Lord.

When the last scene of my life shot before me I looked back at the

footprints in the sand. There was only one set of footprints.

I realized that this was at the lowest and saddest times of my life.

This always bothered me and I questioned the Lord about my dilemma.

“Lord, You told me when I decided to follow You, You would walk

and talk with me all the way.

But I’m aware that during the most troublesome times of my life

there is only one set of footprints.

I just don’t understand why, when I need You most, You leave me.”

He whispered, “My precious child, I love you and will never leave you,

never, ever, during your trials and testings.

When you saw only one set of footprints, It was then that I carried you.

Jesus is our guide and our shepherd.  He leads us to God The Father and to Heaven

if we will trust Him alone for our salvation. 

 

FOOTSTEPS    (Sung By Daniel O’Donnell)

         Footsteps walking with me with me.  Footsteps I cannot see.                                           
But every move I make
And every step I take
I know they’re there with me.
They walk with me all the way
Beside me day by day
Through good and bad
Through happy and sad
Those footsteps won’t go away.
 

I’ll never walk in life alone
There’ll always be someone there.
I know He won’t let me down
He’s with me everywhere.

The special things in life I’ve done
Have been through Him and His love.
I’ve been blessed in so many ways
Thanks to the Lord above.
 

Footsteps walking with me.
Footsteps I cannot see.
But every move I make
And every step I take
I know they’re there with me.
They walk with me all the way
Beside me day by day.
Through good and bad
Through happy and sad
Those footsteps won’t go away.
 

I think that my life’s been planned
By the one who’s guiding me.
When I’m led by the hand
Of someone I can’t see
I’m not always sure where to go.

When I’m led by the hand
Of someone I can’t see
I’m not always sure where to go.

That’s when I follow his lead
I know that the pathway that He shows
Will help me to succeed.

 Footsteps walking with me (footsteps walking).

Footsteps I cannot see (I cannot see).
But every move I make
And every step I take
I know they’re there with me.
They walk with me all the way
Beside me day by day (day by day).
Through good and bad
Through happy and sad
Those footsteps won’t go away.
Through good and bad
Through happy and sad
By my side they will stay.

 

 

Psalm 23 (King James Version)       

1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:

he leadeth me beside the still waters.

3 He restoreth my soul:

he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;

thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:

thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:

and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
