    Footprints

    Imagine going to heaven and standing by God as He lovingly shows you the calendar of His plan for your earthly life. It begins with the day you are born. Once you received Christ as Savior, every day that follows is outlined in red. You see footprints walking through each day of each week of your life. On many of the days, two sets of footprints appear. You inquire: “Father, are those my footprints on the calendar every day and is the second set when you joined me?”

    He answers, “No, My precious Child. The consistent footprints on the calendar are Mine. The second set of footprints are when you joined Me.”

    “Where were You going, Father?”

    “To the destiny I planned for you, hoping you’d follow.”

    “But, Father, where are my footprints all those times?”

    He answers, “Sometimes you went back to look at old resentments and habits while I was still going forward, hoping you’d join Me. Sometimes, you departed from My path and chose your own calendar instead. Other times, your footprints can even be seen on another person’s calendar because you thought you liked their plan better. At other times, you simply stopped because you would not let go of something you could not take to the next day.”

    “But Father, we ended up OK even if I didn’t walk with You every day, didn’t we?”

    He holds you close and smiles, “Yes, Child, we ended up OK. But, you see, OK was never what I had in mind for you.”

    “Father, what are those golden treasure boxes on certain days?”

    “Blessings, My child, I had for you along the way. Those that are open are those you received. Those still closed were days you did not walk with Me.”
