We've all had those moments, those times in our lives when we are hit with something bad.
Something that is hard to deal with and go through.
Sometimes we can feel so alone. Sometimes you may wonder, where is God in all this?
We sometimes tend to forget that He is with us ALWAYS.
His word says:“I will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Hebrew 13:5) .
That is a promise and it is so true.
As a reminder that God is ALWAYS with us even in times of hardship,
I created this lovely hand stamped necklace, based on that verse and inspired by the poem "Footprints in the Sand."
 If you have never read that poem, Ive included it here:

One night I had a dream--
I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord
and across the sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints,
one belonged to me and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that many times along the path of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest
and saddest times in my life.
This really bothered me and I questioned the Lord about it.
"Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
you would walk with me all the way,
but I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life
there is only one set of footprints.
"I don't understand why in times when I needed you most,
you should leave me."
The Lord replied, "My precious, precious child,
I love you and I would never, never leave you
during your times of trial and suffering.
"When you saw only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you."

...Mary Stevenson

Reading that still gives me goosebumps and gets me all teary eyed.
To think of the LOVE our Heavenly Father has to us is so wonderfully overwhelming.
I pray that I am always reminded of his presence and never cease to give Him praise & thanks
for hold my hand and carrying me through all of life's difficulties.
You can find this Hand Stamped "Carried" Necklace in my etsy shop {here}.

Much Love & Hugs,
