You have probably heard this story before. It is repeated here because many people have been blessed by it. Someone else might if you pass it along. A man of God died and he was warmly received in the bosom of God when he passed on. He asked God to show him his life while he was alive. God warmly obliged. The man was shown a very simple scene. It consisted of 2 pairs of foot steps walking side by side. This wonderful scenery of was however broken by a single pair of footsteps in certain places. The man asked God the significance of the scene. God explained that the footprints represented his promise for his children. “I am with you always, to the very end of the age” Mathew 28: 20. The first set of footprints represented the man while the second was God’s. As to the the single pair in some sections of the scene, God explained that those were the difficult times that the man experienced on earth. During those times, God lifted the man up and shielded him from the troubles of the world. Thus only God’s footsteps could be seen. He is indeed the good Shepherd. He can be yours too if you invite him in your heart.
