It Was Then That I Carried You

Posted on: 7-15-112011

Today, a friend and I were talking about the difficult times in our lives when it seemed as if we were alone, but looking back later, we realized that God had actually been right there with us, carrying us through those times. As we talked, I thought about the poem below.  I can remember the first time I ever read this poem.  I was at my grandmother’s house.  She had the words in a frame and I can recall reading it over and over.  She also had a record album (this shows my age, doesn’t it?) that had a song “Footprints” based on this poem.  I listened to that song so many times that I’m sure I drove her crazy!  When I think about it now, I am completely amazed that God used this to make such an impact on me long before I even knew I was in need of a Savior! And I am still blown away by the message of these words!  No matter what you’ve been through, what you’re going through now, or what you will go through in the future, you will never be alone!  You may feel like the whole world has abandoned you and that you are bearing your burdens all by yourself, but you’re not!  God is always there!  He has gathered you up in His arms and is carrying you, even if you don’t realize it at the time.  One day, you, too, will look back and see that there’s only one pair of footprints…and they belong to Him!
