Questions of God Leaving Us Alone
It is natural to feel alone during seasons of hardship, trials and suffering. I appreciate the poem Mary Stevenson wrote in 1936. She summarizes our feelings and the Lord’s perspective so well.
Footprints in the Sand
By Mary Stevenson (1936)
One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
Other times there were one set of footprints.
This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life,
When I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord,
“You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life
There have only been one set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most, you have not been there for me?”
The Lord replied,
“The times when you have seen only one set of footprints in the sand,
Is when I carried you.”
Lord, we desire to know these truths deep down in our heart. Thank you for setting us free from the spirit of fear. Thank you for setting us free by the power of Your Holy Spirit. We choose to walk in the freedom You purchased for us with Your Blood and by Your Name, Jesus. We choose to renew our minds with Your Word, to be transformed and conformed into Your image. Amen.
