There is no Goodbye in the Lord…

I’ve been thinking about this over the last few days…

I had a friend who said Goodbye to me…

It was a final Goodbye…

I understand why my friend did this…

It made me extremely sad…

There was nothing that I could do, nothing that I could say, I just had to let them go…

I had to be true to what I believed and they had to be true to what they believed…

It tore me up inside…

But that is what I had to do…

I had to respect their wishes and let them go…

And I did…

And yet, in the last few days, I now realize that in the Lord we never let each other go…

Our new selves are linked forever in the Lord, we will spend eternity together…

It is only our flesh (or what we used to be before we came to know the Lord) which says Goodbye and it does so to protect itself from more pain…

So yes, we have to respect it when our friend says Goodbye and doesn’t want to have anything to do with us anymore because we respect what they actually say to us and honour that but in the spirit their new heart is not saying Goodbye to our new self (they might be saying Goodbye to our flesh) and there will be a restoration of that relationship, either in the Lord’s presence when we go to be with the Lord or before in His timing…

There is no Goodbye in the Lord…

We are members of one another…

And that is a comforting thought…

Love,

Andrew

About andrew james horton

Hi, my name is Andrew James Horton... I am a Kiwi (New Zealander), born in Christchurch (05 September 1971), now in my mid-forties (I feel so old saying that)... I am blessed to be married with five children and six grandchildren... :-) I am at present a Technical Director - Design, Director working in Christchurch, New Zealand... I am passionate about prophetic intercession and about revival both in New Zealand and throughout the world... I am passionate to pray that the Church, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, will be all that He - the Lord Jesus Christ - desires her to be in our generation... I felt that the Lord gave me the name of this blog site, "a house of prayer for the nations - prophetic intercession for worldwide revival" and wanted me to "put it out there" and start recording the prayers which are on my heart to pray in the hope that others would also be encouraged to share the prayers which are on their hearts to pray and that in the unity of the Spirit we could participate together in this activity in different locations around the world as He leads us... If the Lord leads you, let's join in prayer for the Lord's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven in our generation... Love in the Lord, Andrew
