I need Jesus every day of my life. Jesus tells me in the Bible that without Him I cant do anything. I have the gift and capacity today to play soccer because God gave it to me.

I noticed a little lump on my neck and it changed my plans and my life. We will have to remove it, exclaimed my doctor. It is just a simple operation… I spent three days in the hospital and I waited three weeks for biopsy results. I wasn’t worried at all. I was a 22-year old university student, full of energy and vitality. I didn’t expect it could be something serious. On 22 February 2006 the doctor told me: “It is positive“. I didn’t even understand what it means. Everybody in my family was shocked – I had CANCER. I was confused. I had lots of questions and fears.

He prayed: "Father in Heaven, send your Son Jesus now to this priest suffering from kidney T.B., kidney stones and infections and restore him complete health of body and soul". Then I thought in my mind that he might have seen the hospital chart where my sicknesses were reported!

If I have to be punished for what I did – i.e. for the goodness, truth, and Christ – I wouldn’t choose the smallest punishment, but the most terrible one; I would be so happy if I could die for Christ, although I know that I am not worthy of such a great grace.

I healed my daughter who had bronchitis, after antibiotics showed no effect. I had a wart and it disappeared on the following day after I had used my homoeopathic drugs.

I knew about God, but I didn't know Him. I saw God only as a strict judge. One of the predominant feelings when I thought about God was a sort of fear. Today, I know I was completely wrong.

Yes, bones were my life issue. I was born with a fracture. Since then I had several fractures during all my childhood, every time I fell down. I spent a lot of time in hospitals. I suffered a lot. But I also saw other people suffering. It was for me great life experience, great learning experience. During this experience I understood that God is always with me and He never abandons me. This attitude of praise became (and it is continuously becoming) my expression of love towards God.

I am thankful to have been born 31 years ago with no arms and no legs. I won’t pretend my life is easy, but through the love of my parents, loved ones, and faith in God, I have overcome my adversity and my life is now filled with joy and purpose.

When I was a child I was sexually abused by an older boy. We lived in poverty. I experienced occult practices, depression, homosexuality, and suicide attempts. Only faith in Jesus Christ brought light to my life.

The aim of the “Jesus Heals” prayer gatherings is experiencing the fact that God is Love. He is Love that wants to give itself to other people. God wants to show us His mercy even through healing, signs, wonders, and miracles.

People ask me: What is the purpose of life? And I respond: In a nutshell, life is preparation for eternity. We were made to last forever, and God wants us to be with Him in Heaven.

During chemotherapy I lost my menstrual cycle. After about half-a-year I asked my gynaecologist – oncologist about that. I was afraid I was going to badly react to his answer. He told me:
“It’s normal. Your menstrual cycles will never return.”

I started to do fortune-telling and I said things that resulted to be truthful. I used to predict things that really happened in near future. Sometimes I read people’s thoughts. I disdained Christian religion. I had a bad opinion about believers and acquaintances who were not profound believers.

Despite persecution during the Communist era (or actually because of Communist persecution) my search of God became a continuous adventure. Pilgrimage and travelling rather than studying. When I studied at high school God came dramatically closer to me.

I always have wonderful memories of my return to God; still today they are pretty important. Everything happened during my university studies at times of normalizing Communism.

This epoch is not easy at all for Christians; but for big-format Christians it is a great and marvelous epoch. “If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you.“ In such glorious moments the Church sings to the Lord a heroic song of love and faithfulness. It is a privilege and a gift: to live just now, to love, and to fight.

My core problem was – how can I trust God again?! How can I understand Him? What has happened? What we believed in before suddenly became not valid. We needed to reevaluate our faith from the foundation.

My conversion does not fall under the category “extraordinary”. I know you would like to hear about the miraculous conversion of a former drug-addicted or alcohol-addicted. I was neither drug-addicted nor alcohol-addicted. Maybe this is the reason why my conversion was even more miraculous.

But I was also interested very much in the communist ideals as in something that surpassed the ordinary life. So I became a member of a communist party – because I was convinced and I wanted it. And in spite of the fact I went to church and believed in God. I did not feel it as a contradiction

Then I directly felt that God is a living being, close to us. Back then, God, our Lord, clearly and expressly intervened into my life. He completely changed it. I became another person.

I got more and more entangled in different occult practices. I applied myself to astrology, healing (reiki) and I practiced martial arts. Instead of prayer I meditated in solitude, which pulled me many times away from the life’s reality.

Myslíte si, že je možné niečo dosiahnuť tým, že budete nezištným človekom? Povedzte, má dáky zmysel byť čestným, poctivým a dobroprajným? Oplatí sa byť žičlivým a jednoducho druhým niečo dávať?

Ak sa vám v mysli začalo rojiť čosi ako - no iste, kto to kedy videl; veď sám nemám dosť; no určite, a mne kto čo dal?; a kam by sme takto došli?, a podobne, potom sa vám to zrejme nezdá ako dobrý nápad pre život. Nuž, súhlasím s tým, že sa to na tom našom Slovensku priveľmi "nenosí", ale počul som o tom, že kedysi tomu nebolo tak. Že ľudia vedeli byť aj veľkodušní a prajní, dokázali si v dobrom vychádzať v ústrety a nečakali za všetko odplatu. Lenže akosi sa to zmenilo. Vyrastal som za socializmu a musím povedať, že bolo priam normálnym úzusom, že je treba "brať, kde sa dá." Hovorievalo sa, že kto nekradne, okráda vlastnú rodinu. Koľkorát som dospelých začul srandovne vravieť "deti moje nekradnite, čo vidíte uchmatnite."

Prednedávnom som kdesi na čerpacej stanici nechal na stolíku celú peňaženku. Nebola v nej hotovosť, ale zasa všetky osobné doklady, karty od účtov do bankomatu, papiere od auta a rôzne iné dôležité drobnosti. Nádejal som sa, že mi ju niekto pošle, že sa nálezca čo len na chvíľočku vžije do mojej kože, sám precíti aké by to bolo pre neho strašné stratiť všetky doklady. Ale nestalo sa a musel som si všetko povybavovať. Škoda, vravím si, veď taký malý nezištný čin nálezcu mohol spôsobiť veľa pekného.

Na internete som sa v akejsi štúdii dočítal, že každý druhý slovák za svoj život zažil okradnutie. Príde mi to tragikomické. To, že sa v takejto malej krajine navzájom tak veľmi okrádame. A v Biblii som sa naproti tomu dočítal, že je blaženejšie dávať, ako len prijímať... potom blaženým národom podľa biblického chápania nie sme! (Asi aj preto je tu toľko frustrácie a zamračených tvárí...!)

Nasledujúci príbeh sa naozaj stal. Keď som ho počul, veľmi ma povzbudil a uvedomil som si, že skutočne v našej krajine ešte žijú ľudia, ktorí sú poctiví a spravodliví.

Jedna moja známa si vybrala z bankového účtu značnú finančnú čiastku. Jednalo sa o 3 300 € (cca 100 000 Sk). Plánovala väčší nákup a už sa tešila, že si splní jeden zo svojich snov.

Bolo príjemne teplo a blízky park ju zlákal na prechádzku. Neskôr si sadla na lavičku. Otvorila kabelku a začala si v nej triediť veci. Nemohla v nej niečo nájsť. Povykladala si všetko na lavičku. Kľúče, doklady, lieky, dáždnik, rúž na pery, vreckovky, mobil... Jednoducho všetky tie milé drobnosti, ktoré ženy rady pri sebe nosia a my chlapi s údivom pozeráme, ako sa to všetko zmestí do takých malých kabeliek.

Všetko si potriedila a povyhadzovala staré účty. Svoje veci z lavičky si opäť poukladala do svojho ženského kráľovstva a odišla. Na lavičke však po nej zostala ležať obálka. Jediná a osamotená. Moja známa pokojne prišla domov. Slnečné lúče rovnako hriali. V skvelej nálade si odložila doma plášť a zobrala do rúk kabelku. Vtedy ju zalial studený pot. A rozpamätala sa na obálku s peniazmi, ktorá zostala ležať v parku na lavičke. V panike sa rozbehla späť.

Zúfalo hľadala peniaze. Pozrela pod lavičku, do koša, kde ešte ležali jej odhodené účty, ale nič. Sadla si a rozplakala sa. Začala sa s pocitom zúfalstva modliť. Vtedy jej napadla jedna myšlienka. Kúsok od nej je novinový stánok. Možno tam budú niečo o jej obálke vedieť...

Utrela si slzy a rozmazaný mejkap. Pred stánkom stálo niekoľko ľudí, tak sa postavila na koniec rady. Keď prišla k okienku, nesmelo sa opýtala:

 "Prosím Vás, nechala som tu pred chvíľou na lavičke obálku. Nenašiel ju náhodou niekto?"

Na jej prekvapenie pani predavačka zareagovala slovami: "Ale áno. Bol tu jeden pán a dal mi túto obálku, že ju našiel na lavičke, vraj ju možno bude niekto hľadať." Predavačka v ruke drží obálku s 3300 € a vracia ju späť majiteľke. Ona s údivom hovorí: "Veľmi pekne Vám ďakujem."

"Nie, nie. Neďakujte mi. Veď som vám povedala, že ju tu nechal jeden pán. Aha, pozrite. Akurát za vami stojí." Moja známa sa otočila a zostala stáť zoči-voči šľachetnému človeku, ktorý celú sumu vrátil. So slzami v očiach mu hovorí: "Ďakujem vám. Ako vám napadlo, dať tie peniaze do stánku?"

A neznámy začne hovoriť svoj príbeh.

"Viete asi pred tromi rokmi sa mi stalo niečo podobné. Tiež som si v tomto parku zabudol peniaze a nejaká pani ich dala do tohto stánku. Vtedy bolo v obálke, ešte na staré peniaze 60 000 Sk. A keď som našiel túto obálku s eurami, neváhal som. Zaniesol som ju do stánku, presne tak, ako to vtedy spravila tá pani."

Tu moja známa zo seba prekvapením vyhŕkla: "Viete, tou pani pred troma rokmi - som bola ja..."

Priatelia, jednoducho oplatí sa byť šľachetný. Lebo je to paradox dávania a veľkosti šľachetnej lásky, ktorá má schopnosť rozmnožovať dobro a to sa každému z nás do života vráti. V malom i veľkom. Máme len vtedy, keď dáme.

Dávať môžeme veľa malých vecí, ktoré nás nič nestoja. Úsmev, povzbudenie, ocenenie, pomoc, slušnosť a to aj vtedy, keď by si situácia skôr zaslúžila rozčúlenie alebo mrzutosť. Náš malý svet sa určite stane krajším, usmievavejším a svetlejším. A časom sa iste naučíme dávať aj väčšie a veľké veci.

Na záver opäť jedna biblická myšlienka: "Niekto rozdáva, a stále mu pribúda, kým ten, kto je skúpy máva nedostatok. Štedrá duša bude nasýtená dobrom, a kto občerstvuje, sám bude občerstvený. ... kto dúfa vo svoje bohatstvo padne, kým spravodliví budú rašiť ako lístie." (Kniha prísloví 11 kap, verše 24-25.28).

Čo vy na to, skúsime to na Slovensku priviesť do reality? Ja som presvedčený, že to má význam a reálnymi činmi túto krajinu urobíme krajšou. Nadávaním, mrzutosťou, skupánstvom a zištnosťou to tu však krajšie nikdy nebude.

    We all know, based on our personal experience, that the cooperation with most intelligent people is not often easy. These people usually do not establish friendship easily. It is interesting also that university graduates with an honour degree usually do not fit in to the working environment in the best way and that their high intellect is of a little help in overcoming personal or marriage crises.
