God Works Through People
They tell the story about an elderly lady who was upset because she had lost
her sense of the presence of God. She told this problem to her lady friend
who was visiting one day.
The visitor advised, “Pray to God, Brigid. Ask him to touch you, and he will
put his hand on you.”
Old Brigid began to pray right then and there when suddenly she felt a hand
on her shoulder. She cried out in joy, “he has touched me. ” Then she added,
“But, do you know, it felt just like your hand.”
Her friend said, “sure and it was my hand. What did you think God would do?
Did you think he’d stick a long arm out of heaven to touch you? He just took
the hand which was nearest and he used that.”
