One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.

Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.

In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand. Sometimes there were two sets of footprints, other times there was one only.

This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,

“You promised me Lord, that if I trusted in you, you would walk with me always. But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”

The Lord replied, “The years when you have seen only one set of footprints, my child, is when I carried you.”

  • Trust means trusting in life – to trust so absolutely that you are willing to follow its path no mater where it leads. A person must take a leap, even with the doubt. If you wait for the doubt to disappear first, the moment to take the leap will never come because doubt is a process that creates itself. One doubt leads to another.


  • You don't need an explanation for everything.

  • I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move.
    The Book of Matthew, 17:20, the New Testament

  • To empower someone, give them responsibility, and trust them.
    Efrat Shani

  • How does my doubt serve me? How much influence does it have on me?

  • What price do I pay when I doubt?
  • How can I remind myself to trust?
  • In what situations do I trust myself?

  • I'm worried. It won't work.

    How do I get out of this?

    What's going to happen?

    I don't know what to do…

    Someone help me, please.

    Mom!!! I'm not good enough.

    Things are terrible.

    And what if I get hurt?

    It's frightening.

    I feel uncertain.

    I doubt it.

    Everything turns out o.k. in the end.
