Footprints In The Sand

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed
he was walking along the beach with the LORD.

Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.For each scene he noticed two sets of
footprints in the sand: one belonging
to him, and the other to the LORD.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
he looked back at the footprints in the sand.

He noticed that many times along the path of
his life there was only one set of footprints.

He also noticed that it happened at the very
lowest and saddest times in his life.

This really bothered him and he
questioned the LORD about it:

“LORD, you said that once I decided to follow
you, you’d walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that during the most
troublesome times in my life,
there is only one set of footprints.
I don’t understand why when
I needed you most you would leave me.”

The LORD replied:
“My son, my precious child,
I love you and I would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering,
when you see only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you.”

JEJAK-JEJAK KAKI DI PASIR

Suatu malam ada seseorang bermimpi
Ia bermimpi berjalan disepanjang pantai dengan Tuhan
Dikaki langit terbentang adegan kehidupannya
untuk setiap adegan diamatinya ada dua pasang jejak kaki di pasir
satu pasang adalah miliknya dan sepasang lagi milik Tuhan
saat sampai pada adegan terakhir perjalanan hidupnya
dia memperhatikan kembali jejak-jejak kaki di pasir
dia melihat bahwa banyak saat sepanjang jalan hidupnya
hanya terdapat sepasang jejak kaki.
dan itu terjadi pada saat saat tersulit dan tersedih dalam hidupnya
hal ini sangat mengganggunya maka bertanyalah ia kepada Tuhan
“Tuhan, Engkau berjanji, saat aku memutuskan mengikuti-Mu, Engkau akan menyertaiku.
Tapi aku memperhatikan, di masa-masa sulit dalam perjalanan hidupku, hanay ada satu pasang jejak kaki.
Aku tidak mengerti, mengapa disaat aku paling membutuhkan-Mu, Engkau malah meninggalkan aku.”
Tuhan menjawab,
“Anak-Ku, anak-Ku yang berharga, Aku sangat mengasihimu, dan tidak akan meninggalkanmu.
Di saat masa pencobaan, dan penderitaan,
Saat engkau melihat hanya sepasang jejak kaki,
Itu adalah saat dimana aku menggendongmu.”
