I have read this poem over and over and ponder what the poem is trying to say to us. Does it mean God is carrying me or you or what is He carrying you? Why are there two prints at times?
When He puts us down do we wonder off, this is my opinion but what does it mean to you? Dessert
My interpretation is that the times when there are two sets of footprints in the sand are normally the happy moments in our lives, and those are the times when Christ walks beside us. The times when there are only one set of footprints in the sand are the rough patches in our lives when we think that we can't possibly go on, and those are the times that Christ carries us, and the one set of footprints is Christ's.
