One more letter written

One more letter written... to be sent at some unknown point in the future when I've run out of time or ideas to write something to my Compassion kids.

It's the Footprints poem, printed on a beach scene background. It includes an introduction, the Footprints poem, and a mismash of Bible verses. Feel free to copy the idea or text for your letters if you need inspiration.

I hope that you and your family are well. Below is a copy of the footprints poem. Sometimes we feel that we are alone and that no-one cares for us or supports us when we need it most. Remember that Jesus is always with you. He always cares for you.
One night I had a dream--I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord and across the sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints, one belonged to me and the other to the Lord. When the last scene of my life flashed before me, I looked back at the footprints in the sand. I noticed that many times along the path of my life, there was only one set of footprints. I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in my life. This really bothered me and I questioned the Lord about it. "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you would 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 in times when I needed you most, you should leave me." The Lord replied, "My precious, precious child, I love you and I would never, never leave you during your times of trial and suffering."When you saw only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."
The Lord your God is supreme over all gods and over all powers. He is great and mighty and He is to be feared. The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged for the Lord you God will be with you wherever you go.
Deuteronomy 10: 17, Deuteronomy 31:8 and Joshua 1:9
I continue to pray for you, your family and your project. Your loving sponsor,

  1. Hi Angela, I love the Footprints poem, because it speaks to me when I begin to doubt that the Lord is with me when I need him most. Have you ever read the "Bicycling with God" poem? I have it for a free download at http://www.bearcares.co/storage/free-stuff/Bicycling%20with%20God.png
