Facing the Road Less Travelled; One night a man had a dream. He dreamt that 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 belonged 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 would walk with me all the way. But I notice 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, l love you and 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.”

Believe in yourself, in your own value. You are important, worthwhile. Hold your head high, speak with conviction. Mean what you say and say what you mean. You are a child of God, equal in dignity and respect to any person. Most of all, be gentle with yourself, be patient with your shortcomings. God is love and His love for us is unconditional, when we know that God loves us without seeing our faults we tend to share that kind of love with those close to us.
