"Ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me...
"Ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. And I will be found of you, saith the Lord" (Jeremiah). This Scriptural text was literally fulfilled in my life a number of years ago. At that time I was having terrible stomach pains. I went to a doctor. After a thorough examination in a hospital, nothing specific could be diagnosed. The diet and the medication that were prescribed did not bring any improvement; I became very run–down and emaciated. I went to a homeopath. He diagnosed a tumor in the duodenum. His treatment brought some relief but no healing.
During this time I had a strong desire to read the Bible, to search in it and to try to understand it. But I couldn't understand it. I knew Biblical stories and knew that Christ Jesus healed and that his disciples were able to heal, too. It occurred to me that this should also be possible today. Why is this not possible these days? I wondered.
During the Second World War there had been one time when I had felt that God was very near to me. While in a situation in which capture had seemed inevitable, I had mentally called out to God: "Lord, God, help me." At that moment I had become so inspired that I knew right away that nothing bad would happen to me. How this would be, I didn't know. It was a cold, dark, cloudy day in January, but in spite of that I felt comfort and light. I remained safe from harm when a woman and her mother hid me in their cellar, and I thanked God.
