Farewell is part of life! – Kristina Heuken-Goossen

Farewell is part of life!

Hello my dears!

Today I come to you
even standing under all the impressions
and knowing there is still a lot to come!

Last week my father was all of a sudden
fallen into a coma.
My sisters and I accompanied for 2 days
him in the intensive care unit,
until he could go to the FATHER!

When it was foreseeable … only minutes …
I heard the song you can listen to above!

And I sang it … yeah … tearfully, but it was
so liberating.
And Psalm 23 I said.

Now we did all the other errands yesterday,
which belong to a funeral.

Since I do not belong to any earthly church,
but my family,
there is a word service accordingly.

A pastor asked if we had any wish.
And according to that a Bible verse.

I pray about it and got two.
My sisters and I agreed:

2 Corinthians 6: 2

because it says:
At the pleasant time I heard you and on the day of salvation I helped you;
see, now is the most pleasant time
see, now is the day of salvation!

The pastor asked why this beautiful verse
and what our interpretation is!

I asked the Lord
and I got this incredibly beautiful word:

My child,
write this to the Bible passage 2 Corinthians 6.2!

Thus says the Lord:

You have sought MY salvation
although it was always before you!

You called for ME
I was always with you!

Your voice was always louder
than MY soft calling!

So come into MY arms now
and know:

NOBODY can separate you from ME!

Except yourself!

Because I hold
what I promised!

MY name is IMMANUEL!




I want this consolation and this hope today
give to everyone
who have to say goodbye,
or go through grief, suffering and pain.
But everyone else too!

Run into HIS loving arms!

HE is waiting for us!
