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.”

"I feel like I too am being carried by my Lord through my transitioning period, I miss my family. He is holding me tight and carrying me. His spirit is crying for me. He hates to see me so sad. I am trying so hard to break free from my sadness, it's hard. Although, I look alright on the outside, I feel heartbroken and alone. My human spirit is crying out. I run to my God for help. I have asked for his angels to completely surround me, guide me and protect me. I feel his warmth and love. So while I am trying so hard to come back, I am weak, I can't come out of it alone. The Lord is carrying me."~Jeannie
