RETIREE

I was trapped in a garage where there was a terrible noise, shaking, and destruction. In that panic I cried out, "Oh, my God, save me!" Upon opening my eyes I saw the light of day.

I was born in a village to a Roman Catholic family. I was raised in that spirit and received all of the sacraments in the church, including receiving a devotional "scapular" as a prize for being a good child and student of the Church's doctrine. When I left home for the city to learn my profession, that image of a good child was lost, - it took on the form of the urban life of a young man. 

I started a family and my children were provided with education and the receiving of sacraments in the Catholic Church, but I kept myself in the background. The only good I could find in myself was my material provision for my family. 

Then the war began and I needed help, and I needed it from the God whom I had met in my earlier life. Towards the end of the war, the family became smaller because of my wife's departure, and so my need for God's help increased.

I went into retirement but I was also employed by a company that looks after parks and the environment. 

Just over two years ago, in a garden, I found a book "Consciousness - the Way to God". I didn’t read the book, but the title left a strong impression on me. 

Since that day, things that I could not explain started to happen to me. Something was happening in me that was indescribably good. I was motivated by some force and had a desire to come to know what was happening to me and through conversations with my friends and their testimonies I was able to connect my situation with God.

Very soon after that my employer gave me a Bible and several books of religious content. Through reading and talking a path was opening up to me, but not with complete clarity. By coming to the church in Radićeva, listening to the sermons, reading the Word of God and through prayer meetings, I came to the truth of the gospel and to surrendering to God. I stood before God and He opened my heart - I truly pleaded and prayed for the forgiveness of my sins and for the grace of eternal life and salvation.

Then the Lord gave me an answer through a dream:  I was trapped in a garage where there was a terrible noise, shaking, and destruction. In that panic I cried out, "Oh, my God, save me!" Upon opening my eyes I saw the light of day.

As I write this testimony I’m realizing that He is the same God whom I met in my early youth, who was with me all the days of my life, and I had rejected Him. He is the unchangeable God who has changed me through His grace and has drawn me closer to Himself.
