Footprints In The Sand

Footprints in the sand
This is one of my all time favorite poem and I want to share it on this blog as well, even though it doesn't have anything to do with nail stickers decal.


Footprints
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 precious, 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.”


足印 (Translated by me)
有一個晚上﹐有人作了一個夢。
他夢見自己與主在沙灘上同行。
他生命中的每一幕在天空掠過。
他留意到每一幕都有兩雙足印在沙灘上﹔
一雙屬於他﹐另一雙屬於主。

當他生命最後的一幕在他眼前掠過﹐
他回望留在沙灘上的足印。
他留意到在他一生中有很多時刻都只有一雙足印。
而那些時刻正是他人生最低潮和失意之時。

他很憂愁﹐就問主:「主﹐你說過只要我願意追隨你﹐
你將會一生與我同行。
但在我人生最失意時﹐卻只有一雙足印。
我不明為何在我最需要你時﹐你卻離開我。」

主答道:「我親愛的孩子﹐
我愛你﹐我永遠也不會離開你。
在你受苦和受試煉時﹐
你所看見的那一雙足印﹐正是我揹著你行走。」



And the Cantonese version even made it into a song.  I love it so much.

足印


足印-歌詞

1﹒憶當天的那段舊夢,祂彷似與我夜裡共行,
沙灘中的每段道路,編出你與我兩雙足印。
漫漫路無論多少崎嶇,都有基督緊握我手,
遇寂寞但也不孤單,明白你是共行。
2﹒祂當天親身的應許,祂必會與我伴結前行,
一生中的每段道路,都必會帶領我經過。
路漸盡回望我的一生,雖有祂一起的腳縱,
但絕望並困境之中,全是孤單足印。
3﹒每次我心中多悲傷,祂怎卻遠去剩我獨行,
每次我感到是寂寞,祂怎卻遠去剩我孤單。
默默地在我身邊的主,跟我低聲輕輕說出,
在絕望路裡的一雙,原是我的足印。

回望我過去,多少的失意,但你每次每次也在旁,
是你抹我淚痕,是你揹我經過!
明白到有你居於心深處,我不再是獨行!

(我不再迷路向!)
前路有你共行,留下雙雙足印。

4﹒你愛我使我不孤單,一生盼與你伴結前行,
我決意不會孤身走,一生要與你共證福音,
默默地凝望身邊所需,驚覺不少孤單身影,
在絕望並困境之中,仍未與你同行。

回望我過去,多次偏己意,但你每次每次也在旁,
是你背我軟弱,是你叫我醒覺!
明白你盼我將福音宣告,我不再迷路向,
前路縱有困難,仍願與你共行。
「全是你愛我,使我得釋放,我捨棄全為你!
前路縱有困難,仍願與你共行。
前路與你同行,留下福音足印。」
