The healing power
of the Holy Spirit
t’s wonderful to know
that, as believers in
Christ, we can live in close
fellowship with God. Jesus
said in John 16:7 (AMP), “I
tell you the truth, it is to your
advantage that I go away;
for if I do not go away, the
Helper (Comforter, Advo-
cate, Intercessor – Coun-
selor, Strengthener, Standby)
will not come to you; but if I
go, I will send Him (the Holy
Spirit) to you [to be in close
fellowship with you].”
When Jesus walked the
earth, He could be in one
place at a time and He could
be with the disciples. But the
Holy Spirit can be every-
where, all the time, and He
lives IN those who have ac-
cepted Christ as their Savior.
Being with Jesus is good, but
having the Holy Spirit in us
is even better. We don’t have
to go looking for God be-
cause He’s as close as close
can get!
See, when we receive
Christ and we’re born again,
it literally means that God
– through the power of the
Holy Spirit – comes to live
inside us. He makes us new
on the inside, and as He
works in us, the fruit of what
He’s doing is seen in the way
we live and does some good
for the people in the world
around us. (See 2 Corinthi-
ans 5:17, 21; John 14:17, 26;
Acts 1:8; Galatians 5:22-23.)
Who He is to you
John 16:7 tells us who the
Holy Spirit is: Helper, Com-
forter, Advocate, Intercessor,
Counselor, Strengthener and
Standby. John 14:26 (AMP)
says “He will teach you all
things.” The Holy Spirit is
THE Teacher and He guides
us into all truth.
Think of this in the stand-
point of recovering from
things in the past that have
hurt you. Many people come
to God because their life is
messed up and they don’t
know what to do to fi x it.
They’ve tried everything
they know to do and noth-
ing is working. So fi nally, in
their desperation, they ask
for His help.
Thankfully, God wants to
help us and heal us – spirit,
soul and body. He wants to
bring restoration to us so we
won’t live in a state of re-
covery forever. He wants us
to be whole in Christ so we
can help someone else. We
need the Holy Spirit to lead
us to truth one step at a time,
and we need His strength to
confront things that are hard
to face so we can get victory
over them.
In my journey with Christ,
He’s brought so much heal-
ing and restoration to my
soul – my mind, will and
emotions. My father sexually
abused me throughout my
childhood. When I left home
at 18, I thought, “That’s
over! I’m putting that prob-
lem behind me.” But I took
the problem with me because
the wounds of the abuse were
still in my soul.
The pain of my past af-
fected my thinking, how I
operated emotionally, all of
my relationships, and even
my will. I was rebellious and
stubborn and promised my-
self no one would ever hurt
me or push me around again.
I was born again at this
time but didn’t know that I
could have the power of the
Holy Spirit working in my
life. It was years later, after
I started seriously studying
the Word of God, that I re-
alized the Holy Spirit could
heal me.
It’s so important to under-
stand that we cannot do this
on our own, but as we lean
on the Holy Spirit for the
strength to face our problems,
we can overcome them.

Run to your source of
healing, not from Him
If you have hurts from
abuse, disappointments, an
injustice or any other kind of
mistreatment, you will have
to face them with the help of
the Holy Spirit to be healed
of them. Because anything
you run from has a certain
amount of power over you,
and until you face it, every
time it raises its ugly head,
you have to run some more.
Thank God, you don’t have
to do it alone!
As I began my journey to
wholeness in Christ, I had
to face some painful things
I had been avoiding and at
times, running from. I had
to face the fact that my par-
ents didn’t know how to
love me…that I had been
abused…that there was a lot
of pain in my life because of
it all…that my dysfunctional
behavior was rooted in the
mistreatment I had experi-
enced and I couldn’t blame
it on the people in my life
now. I had to take responsi-
bility for my wrong attitudes,
mind-sets and behavior, and
lean on God for the wisdom
and strength to change.
Recovery and restoration
of our souls takes time. One
step at a time the Holy Spirit
guides us into truth that sets
us free. I want to encourage
you today to trust God’s love
for you and that He wants to
help you and heal you. The
truth is, you can’t heal your-
self, but you can be com-
pletely healed and whole in
Christ, because all things are
possible with God!

Dave Maks was born March 14, 1924 and passed away
in Eugene, OR from heart failure, on June 6, 2016, at the age
of 92. He was born in Sedro Woolley, Washington as one of
three children born to Stephen and Frances Maks. Dave was
raised between Portland, Oregon and Sedro Woolley, where
he recalled fond memories of spending summers with his
grandparents. Dave was a child prodigy accordionist at 9
years of age. He loved making music playing the accordion
and the piano. He was attending Columbia Preparatory
School, now the University of Portland, when WWII began.
He joined the United States Navy and served as a Second
Class Signalman in the Pacifi c Th eater aboard the USS
Arneb. His Navy career came to an end when he contracted
tuberculosis and was taken home for treatment at Corona
Naval Hospital. Aft er surviving TB and malaria, he returned to Portland to attend business school
and entered the Veterans Administration as a stenographer. Dave worked in various capacities
throughout his 43 year career in the VA with positions in Portland, OR; Fresno, CA; Roseburg,
OR; and American Lake, WA, from which he retired as Chief Medical Administrator. He took
great pride in assisting veterans and their families from all walks of life. Th rough his retirement he
continued to assist veterans in the Drain and Cottage Grove, OR area in seeking care through the
Dave was an avid fi sherman in his younger years, enjoying many hours on northwest rivers. He
grew terrifi c gardens and taught his children how to teepee beans as his grandfather had taught him
in childhood. He cooked huge pots of spaghetti sauce made from luscious home-grown tomatoes,
pickled quarts of beets, and canned green beans. When not in the garden, he played baseball, golf,
offi ciated basketball and participated in tournament bowling. While living at American Lake he
loved his volunteer job as a Water Safety Sheriff . In retirement his favorite past time was welcoming
friends, children and grandchildren for visits to the home he and Becky made on Territorial

Stephen (Claudia), Suzanne, David (Mercedes), Christin, Shannon (Honor). He is also survived by
12 grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren and 8 loving nieces and nephews.
His Catholic faith was strong and guided his life. He participated at Mass, fi rst as an altar boy
and eventually as lay clergy. It was rare for Dave to ever miss Mass, communion or the opportunity
to help another in need. He was a proud member of St. Johns Parish in Drain, then Our Lady of
Perpetual Help in Cottage Grove, and most recently St. Paul’s in Eugene.
In lieu of fl owers, donations to Catholic Charities would be appreciated. Committal Service
