" No Footprints "

I've listened to the "footprints" poem a million times or more
Of how when only one set shows upon the sandy shore
It is the Lord that's carrying us and taking on our load
And His are the only set of footprints that are shown.

But what if when we look there are no footprints to be found?
All we see is plain and simple sand upon the ground.
No imprints showing that our Lord is carrying us through life
Helping us when we feel that we can't handle all this strife.

Where is my Lord when I have fallen and can't seem to get back up?
So tired and so lonely dealing with an overflowing cup.
Where are those footprints in the sand, to tell me He's right there?
Helping me with problems and showing me that He cares.

Does He have favorites?  OH NO! Please say that isn't so!
But, why does life seem easier for some people that I know?
Sometimes I just scream out loud although it seems in vain.
But often it is hard each day, just to deal with all this pain.

And then it dawned on me and I realized how simple might it be.
I wondered why I was so blind, and I truly couldn't see.
It must have been a lightning bolt that one day gave me light,
Because out of the blue that day I finally regained my sight.

I saw a beautifully formed cloud, shaped like the Eagle's wings.
God helped me to understand  that day, and to grasp some special things.
When I saw there were no footprints, and so often wondered why,
My Lord had fashioned Eagle wings, so together we could fly!

Forgive me Lord, and hold me close
As I learn to soar above.
For now I can release my fears
As I hold on to
Your Love.
