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!

    Dear Sister KRISTINA.
    It is a sad news, we wish you strength, God be with you.
    You see, the Lord takes care of His own. Your Father departing earlier is to be taken for good. Sad as it is, good at the end, he is with the Lord. Knowing what is coming, the Lord’s way is a better way, His plan holds and it is the best.

    God be with you and your Family.

  2. Os meus sentimentos é sempre difícil ver alguém partir. Na graça do Senhor está fique certo.
    Um abraço forte

    Good to know your father died in Christ. I tell in this video about my father: Prayer : I and my house

    Kristina, our dear sister in Our LORD JESUS CHRIST…we wish to send our heart felt condolences to you and your beloved family. Losing a father shakes some stuff in any household. But our Heavenly ABBA promises us a family reunion pretty soon at home up above. And we know that we can rely upon HIS divine promises. But for now while we’re here in this foreign land, kindly receive this WORD from the Holy Spirit:

    ‘For I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’
    Isaiah 41:10

  6. So sorry sister that you have lost your dad. I’m thankful with you that he is with the Lord now in heaven. May the Lord continue to hold you in grief and comfort. Thank you for sharing.

  7. May the great God abide with you dear sister and comfort you! Lots of love.

  8. Averine Pennington

    I am overwhelmed because of all your heart warming, kind and loving words.
    It is a pleasure for me and a so wonderful moment, to see,
    how the heavenly family be there for each other.
    May it in America, in Germany, in Brazil or in Russia.(I astimated it on the languages)

    I thank each and everyone of you and send a big hug,
    coming straight from my heart, to you all.

    Much love
    and GOD bless
    everyone in abundance!

    Can´t wait to see you all ..
    and than we dance and sing and shout..
    on the streets that are golden…

  12. Dear Sister Kristina,

    May you and your family feel the peace and love our Lord and Master, Jesus, Yahushua, Immanuel, during this difficult time. HlleluYah, that your earthly dad was a believer, and you know he is in heaven. It is hard, losing family, but reassuring that he was taken home before things get any worse on this earth.

    Oh come, oh come, Emmanuel, and ransom captive Israel…

    Blessings, hugs, encouragement, love and shalom to you and your family, in King Yahushua’s Mighty Name!


  13. Oh…my dear Sister, take heart my dear.

    God has given and he has taken..

    The most important thing is that he has gone to rest with the Lord.. On the resurrection morning you will see him again, never to part no more.

    Remember many of our loved ones who would not be able to endure what is coming ahead of us would be laid to rest.

  14. So sorry for your loss dear sister!

  15. Michelle

    I’m so very sorry for your loss. My dad went home to be with the Lord two years ago, and I miss him terribly. But honestly, I am glad, too. Because now he does not have to live through what is coming. Thank you for the beautiful word. Much love.

    Kristina – So Very Sorry To Hear About The Loss Of Your Father




  17. Sister, remember these words from Isaiah chapter 57, verse 1: “The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come”

    God is taking home many of his older saints now to spare them from what is about to happen. Your father is now with the Lord and you will be reunited with him in the not distant future for a great celebration. God bless you and your family.

  18. Ambassador

    Sounds a peaceful journey to our Father in heaven. Oh, death, where is your sting? Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.

    Peace to you, dear sister. God bless.

    “The Innocent and The Faithful go first”

    God has been speaking to me recently on a difficult topic but one that He desires to bring clarity to. It’s the soon homecoming of many of the innocents and His saints. This may include those in our own personal lives that we know and love. God is very merciful and it’s becoming more and more clear with the fervency, urgency and magnitude of the prophetic warnings that unprecedented times are upon us. Times that will bring much chaos, pain, suffering and loss of life. That being said for many of the innocent and His faithful, He is going to spare them of such atrocities and take them home before these things happen. When this happens, He has been emphasizing that we must understand the bigger picture, to not: get offended, get bitter or to quit. We must not allow these things to take us out or slow us down. The Lord will give us grace to grieve quickly and deeply but then let go and rejoice that our friends, family and loved ones are with Him and that they are found worthy to escape the things to come.

    With this in mind, God has also emphasized the importance of valuing, honoring and cherishing those in our lives while they are all here. To take time to be in the moment and consider what they mean to us and to earnestly pray for them. He is saying that now is the time to be willing to make amends, to be humble, to be vulnerable and to be honest in our expression of love and feelings for one another. It is time to forgive and to allow Him to bring about closure, healing and restoration. Yes, we are in challenging times and a season of great transitions but God is doing a glorious work in His people and for that we can be hopeful. Let’s all pray for one another to finish our race well and not be offended when such events take place. May God bless and keep you and your house forever with Him.

    “Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.” – Luke 21:36

    “The righteous person perishes, and no one takes it to heart; the faithful are taken away early, but no one seems to understand that God is protecting them from the evil that is to come.” – Isaiah 57:1

  20. Eyes Open

    That’s beautiful Bro C. Thank you. And thank you Sis. Kristen for your beautiful interpretation of the verses used for your fathers graduation.

  21. Christine

    Dear Kristina,

    Sorry to hear about the loss of your father. Take heart, sister, he died in Christ and is delivered now. I send you and your family much love and blessings.
