Touched today by God

Today at work on my last break I went into the restroom as usual. Once inside, I noticed a little boy about 8yrs. old just standing there. I noticed that he did not have any hands. I said, “hey what’s up?”. He stood and looked at me as I went over to the urinal. I said, “so what are you doing?” He spoke in a speech that I could not understand. I figured that he had a speech impairment and possibly a mental disability. I continued to talk to him as if nothing was wrong. He still talked in a speech that I could not understand.

He went into the stall. I said, “are you going to go to the bathroom?” Again he mumbled out loud. I washed my hands and headed over to grab a towel. As I did, I felt impressed to mention God and Christ to him. After I finished, he spoke and I could understand him only when he said God and Jesus. Wow! I thought. He actually said something that I could understand.

I asked him, “do you know Christ?” He said, “yes I know Christ”. Wow! I was amazed.

Here was a boy that the only thing I could understand him say was “God and Christ” and now he said, “yes I know Christ”.

As I was getting ready to leave, I said, “God bless you”. He said from back inside the stall, “God bless you”. Wow again! I smiled as I opened the door.

Outside was another boy. I asked him if that was his brother inside. He said yes. I told him we talked about Jesus Christ. He smiled as to if he knew what the deal was.

I was smiling all the way back to the lunch room. Inside I had an opportunity to share it with a co-worker. Glory about God to God.
Praise Him! He is truly very awesome! He works through people.
