Genesis 17:1, 9-10, 15-22, Ps 128, Matthew 8:1-4

Love carried me

It is an iconic image and a beloved poem. Two sets of footprints, mine and God’s, in the sand, becoming one. And the puzzle – where were you, Lord?

The Lord replied,

“The times when you have seen only one set of footprints is when I carried you.”

Certainly, I have been carried by love.

I have been healed.

I have been supported.

When fear of the future overwhelmed me.

When legalese confused me.

When financial security disappeared.

When dreams died.

The Lord carried me.
