This testimony is short and sweet…. not to mention profound. It shows there is no limitation to the ways God can comfort and guide His children.


I stopped at a restaurant with my daughter one evening and as we sat eating I was thinking about all of the things that I had going on in my life right then. I was getting remarried soon and there were a lot of things to do. I was not paying attention to my daughter but worrying about other things.

Just then I felt a hand touch my back. It pushed down gently between my shoulder blades. I looked around and nobody was standing behind me. There was not anyone near where we were sitting.

As the hand rested on my back I suddenly felt better, as if a weight had been lifted. I was able to set aside the other stuff and spend some quality time with my daughter. I believe this was the Divine giving me a gift of peace, reminding me where my focus should have been. I was able to listen to my daughter, who I do not see very often, and not later regret missing quality time with her.

I am so grateful for that amazing gift of love and comfort. Whenever I get stressed in life I try to remember that day and I begin to see things differently.
