One night I dreamed a dream.
As I was walking along the beach with my Lord.
Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,
One belonging to me and one to my Lord.
After the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that at many times along the path of my life,
especially at the very lowest and saddest times,
there was only one set of footprints.
This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it.
"Lord, you said once I decided to follow you,
You'd walk with me all the way.
But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me."
He whispered, "My precious child, I love you and will never leave you
Never, ever, during your trials and testings.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you."

One night I had a dream, that involved two other women and three sets of footprints in the sand.

I, personally, wouldn't call this a poem. Too lacking in rhythm and flow. I do like the meaning behind it, though. 'Tis a good parable.
To say one has free will, to have chosen other than they did, is to say they have will over their will... Will over the will they have over their will... Will over the will they have over the will they have over their will, etc... It's utter nonsense.

I'd rather think that I can get through my own problems than believe that some supernatural being had to carry me through them. I understand asking for help from family and friends if it gets really bad, but I should hope that I never need someone to carry me through my problems.

You have help whether you recognize it or not. No one is alone.

You have help whether you recognize it or not. No one is alone.

Why would you rather believe that you can't deal with your problems yourself? Why would you rather believe that you need help from an all-powerful being just to make it through life? I understand getting help from people in your family or your friends, but being carried through your life by a supernatural being is, for lack of a better word, lazy. I'd much rather be strong enough to walk through life on my own than constantly need help from something like God.

Also, there are a lot of people that are definitely not getting the help that they need. They are not being carried, they are being dragged through the mud. These people are miserable with their lives, and they are stuck. Many see no way out and commit suicide. Where is your God then? Why do they not deserve to be carried, or at least helped through their life? And don't say, "Oh, they are being tested." It is not a test for some people. It is pure misery that only ends with their death.

I am arguing about the poem. I am arguing about whether it is a good mentality to believe that you are carried through the bad times, rather than actually being able to get through them yourself. The poem is about God carrying you through your bad moments, so obviously, God will come up in the discussion.

After the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that at many times along the path of my life,
especially at the very lowest and saddest times,
there was only one set of footprints.
This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it.
"Lord, you said once I decided to follow you,
You'd walk with me all the way.
But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I don't understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me."
He whispered, "My precious child, I love you and will never leave you
Never, ever, during your trials and testings.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you."

love this poem...

I'd rather think that I can get through my own problems than believe that some supernatural being had to carry me through them. I understand asking for help from family and friends if it gets really bad, but I should hope that I never need someone to carry me through my problems.

You have help whether you recognize it or not. No one is alone.

Why would you rather believe that you can't deal with your problems yourself? Why would you rather believe that you need help from an all-powerful being just to make it through life? I understand getting help from people in your family or your friends, but being carried through your life by a supernatural being is, for lack of a better word, lazy. I'd much rather be strong enough to walk through life on my own than constantly need help from something like God.

Also, there are a lot of people that are definitely not getting the help that they need. They are not being carried, they are being dragged through the mud. These people are miserable with their lives, and they are stuck. Many see no way out and commit suicide. Where is your God then? Why do they not deserve to be carried, or at least helped through their life? And don't say, "Oh, they are being tested." It is not a test for some people. It is pure misery that only ends with their death.

GTFO!

Is that your only response. I thought I was in for an intelligent debate.

Obviously this thread isn't for arguing about god.

I am arguing about the poem. I am arguing about whether it is a good mentality to believe that you are carried through the bad times, rather than actually being able to get through them yourself. The poem is about God carrying you through your bad moments, so obviously, God will come up in the discussion.

Ok then. I actually don't even think of this. I simply have faith that things will play out as he intends, good. Not good as in "good" things but more along the lines of rightous. I'm playing a long game. There will be bumps. Some much larger than others but because i wholeheartedly believe i completely embrace the faith. This is part of it.

That's how i roll.

This poem is actually just a mic drop, much like a creepypasta. At the end it's just BOOM. And it is a christian theme. That's it.

How is it righteous that good, kind people wind up with such bad lives?

Trust me on this one: there will be times in life no matter how strong, or smart, a person is: the love and caring of family/friends/community will be what gets one through. I am not calling you arrogant. I'm am cautioning you against arrogance when those times arise.

And to many, that agape love is what is referred to as god for lack of a better word (when you google agape, look at the Greek vs Christian definition as that is what is being referenced. Christians, I'm not denigrating your definition of agape).
