footprints in the sand

A man noticed that whenever he walked in the sand while he was happy, there were two sets of footprints.

He also noticed that when he was down, feeling sad and depressed, there was only one set of footprints. he then asked God why He abandoned him at the time he needed Him most as there was only one set of footprints.

man: "God, you said you will never forsake nor leave me"

God: "yes, i said that"

man: "then why is it that when i am stressed, sad and depressed you aren't there?"

God replied: "my child, those were the times i carried you."

The message here is that God is slways walking beside you..when you are going through tough times, He will carry you through. He is Faithful and stays true to his word!

So watch out for those footprints...

God bless.

Emotive reactions

Laughter on the face of a child
The calm and joy it brings
But slowly,
With a few deep words
The smile turns upside down
And from the pit of such a moody heart
Sadness bells forth…
Followed by depression and tears
But while on the brink of tears,
Some sweet words are spoken
Then joy and calm radiates
……to see laughter on the face of a child.
