The image of footprints in the sand, two sets walking side-by-side, occasionally reduced to one, sweetly portraying the faithfulness of Christ in my life. But as I looked closely there was a larger set of prints that sometimes joined and sometimes deviated from my path.
When I turned to Jesus to ask Him about this third set of footprints, He replied, "Sometimes you listened to your Father God and walked close to where He walked. Sometimes you did not listen at all and wandered far from where He was leading. But you see where your footprints grew? That is where you walked in your Father's footsteps."
