-Footprints in the Sand-

-Footprints in the Sand-

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 offootprints 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 troubled 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."

No End

This morning I was listening to music on my computer, and this one song that I love very much started playing.  It was one of those morning where I put it on repeat, and listened to it for hours.  Well, what is the song you ask?  It is actually a hymn called, "If You Could Hie to Kolob."  In the 4th and 5th verses it names many things that are endless from eternity to eternity.  These things will exist forever and ever, and that just boggles my mind sometimes.  I am comforted however, by the thought of amazing things going on forever, from generation to generation.  I just love it, and have a testimony that it does exist.  The world is just too big to keep it to yourself.  

There is no end to virtue;
There is no end to might;
There is no end to wisdom;
There is no end to light;
There is no end to union;
There is no end to youth;
There is no end to priesthood;
There is no end to truth.

There is no end to glory;
There is no end to love;
There is no end to being;
There is no death above.

The words are much better with pictures, and music.  They don't start singing until the 4 minute mark, just in case you were wondering.  :)

"And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost."  Moroni 10:4
