Footprints

This morning I stumbled across something I had written near the end of my year as a student missionary. I was up against a rather tough situation in my life and was just trying to sort things out. Somewhere in the midst of my ramblings I came across a realization. I thought I would share this little excerpt:

“I can understand that Footprints poem.  I often look back over the year and see only one set of footprints for almost all of it.  It looks as if I have walked it alone.  But if I look again, those Footprints are way bigger than mine.  I know I have been carried all the way.  I can see where I have decided to jump out His arms— its a big indentation in the sand where I have fallen flat on my face instead of walking.  But even those spots where I tried to do it on my own, I look closely and see that God picked me up again and beneath each spot that I fell was a sand Angel that God had turned my stumble into.  I am not worthy of His endless love yet He continues to shower it on me in torrential rains.”  — April 2008

 

I am thankful I have a Savior that still holds my hand.
