Twist on Foot Prints Poem   5 comments



I have been laughing out loud enjoying Anita Renfroe’s book The Purse-Driven Life.   Anita is a Christian comedian whose perspective on women and midlife is just a crack up!  She is one funny woman!  

She had this quote in her book and I thought I would share it:

Buttprints in the Sand

“One night I had a wondrous dream,
One set of footprints there was seen,
The footprints of my precious Lord,
But mine were not along the shore.

But then some stranger prints appeared,
And I asked the Lord, “What have we here?”
Those prints are large and round and neat,
“But Lord they are too big for feet.”

“My child,” He said in somber tones,
“For miles I carried you alone.
I challenged you to walk in faith,
But you refused and made me wait.”

“You disobeyed, you would not grow,
The walk of faith, you would not know.
So I got tired, I got fed up,
and there I dropped you on your butt.”

“Because in life, there comes a time,
when one must fight, and one must climb.
When one must rise and take a stand,
or leave their butt prints in the sand.”

She goes on to say:

But, the Bible is as clear on the long-suffering and compassionate nature of God. He is patient with us and carries us so many more times than we may ever know. I just want to be ready for the time when He invites me to walk again.
