I know God's here. But do you ever wonder what's going on? You feel so alone and

can't seem to find that wonderful feeling when you know God is with you.

I am struggling. To get close to him. I really need him to perform some miracles.

I'm sure you've read this before but it usually picks me up.

                                         FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND

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."
I will put you in the trunk, and help people look for you, DON'T TEST ME.


All I got for you Hollywood is love and prayers  :bighug:  :bighug:  :smiley praying:


Times are tough when "Happy Hour" is your nap.
My mind not only wanders, sometimes it leaves completely!


Sorry it's taken me  little while to answer... I wanted to think about this for a bit as it calls to a place of deep sorrow inside me.

Absolutely I wonder what's going on and sometimes I long to feel closer to God than I do and understand the why behind all that's going on.  I so connect with that you're saying. God is closer than we could imagine and yet we can feel so alone in this. You know you're in my prayers, brother. Hoping that the ceiling breaks open for you again.

Where God leads, His hand always provides keep Calm and code on....



Thank you Everyone for your support.

Robby.. I love "footprints"

I have read a lot about the Saints (i'm Catholic still I think?) :insane: And they suffered dark and lost times. That's why I enjoy reading about them.

Fox....i'm reaching for the ceiling \,,,/
