All About GOD - Growing Relationships with Jesus and Others

Hello my dear family in Christ.... This new version of the 'footprints' story really caught me off guard at the end...What a blessing!!! I believe you will be blessed by it.

May God help each one of us to walk on His Foot print, and to dance with HIM.


  A New Version 

Imagine you and the Lord Jesus are walking down the road together.  For  much of the way, the Lord's footprints go along steadily, consistently, rarely varying the pace.

But your footprints are a disorganized stream of zigzags, starts, stops, turnarounds, circles, departures, and returns.

For much of the way, it seems to go like this, but gradually your footprints come more in line with the Lord's, soon paralleling His consistently.

You and Jesus are walking as true friends!

This seems perfect, but then an interesting thing happens: Your footprints that once etched the sand next to Jesus' are now walking precisely in His steps.

Inside His larger footprints are your smaller ones, you and Jesus are becoming one.

This goes on for many miles, but gradually you notice another change. The  footprints inside the large footprints seem to grow larger.

Eventually they disappear altogether. There is
 only one set of footprints.  They have become one. 

This goes on for a long time, but suddenly the second set of footprints is back. This time it seems even worse! Zigzags all over the place.  Stops.  Starts. Gashes in the sand.  A variable mess of prints.

You are amazed and shocked.

Your dream ends. Now you pray:

'Lord, I understand the first scene, with zigzags and fits. I was a new Christian; I was just learning. But You walked on through the storm and helped me learn to walk with You.'

'That is correct...'

'And when the smaller footprints were inside of Yours, I was actually learning to walk in Your steps, following You very closely.'

'Very good.... You have understood everything so far.'

'When the smaller footprints grew and filled in Yours, I suppose that I was becoming like You in every way.'


'So, Lord, was there a regression or something? The footprints separated, and this time it was worse than at first.'

There is a pause as the Lord answers, with a smile in His voice..  
'You didn't know?  It was then that we danced!' 

To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven: A time to weep, a time to laugh, a time to mourn, and a time to dance.

Ecclesiastes  3:1,4.

It's not WHAT you have in your life, but Who you have in your life that counts... Think about that.


I asked for a flower,
He gave me a garden. 

I asked for a tree,
He gave me a forest.  

I asked for a river,
He gave me an ocean. 



Life without God is like an unsharpened pencil - it has no point."
