How will you welcome Him?

How will you welcome Him?
.
I’ve always thought about this question—How will I welcome the Savior?
.
A poem that has always had a significant impact on me is ”Footprints in the Sand.”
.
I’ve tried to live my life in a way that I include Him in everything I do. I don’t want to be caught off guard when he comes. I want to welcome Him like I’ve had Him by my side the entire time. I don’t want it to be a surprise when He shows up.
.
It shouldn’t be a surprise. We know He will be here soon. So, how are you going to welcome him?
.
Here is the poem:
.
One night I dreamed a dream.
As I was walking along the beach with my Lord. Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand, One belonging to me and one to my Lord.
.
After the last scene of my life flashed before me, I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
.
I noticed that at many times along the path of my life, especially at the very lowest and saddest times, there was only one set of footprints. This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it.
.
“Lord, you said once I decided to follow you, You’d walk with me all the way.
.
But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I don’t understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me.”
.
He whispered, “My precious child, I love you and will never leave you Never, ever, during your trials and testings.
.
When you saw only one set of footprints, It was then that I carried you.”
