I am continuing to learn about new programs on my new computer which are including updated abilities to write and edit. Should a mistake be made in the inner composition of a document it can be erased but kept in an unseen file so that it is not obliterated.
This made me think of FORGIVENESS. We are called to forgive others ie erase from our thinking. their sin against us.
We are told to keep going to our Heavenly Father to ask for His Forgiveness.
Think about this for a moment. Forgiveness offered and accepted erases the sin or the problem. But……….. Where do the memories go? Do we obliterate them from our immediate view but keep them stored somewhere ……out there to recall when circumstance arise? or do we also press our empty the deleted file and remove them forever?
We have the assurance that’s God’s FORGIVENESS in not stored in His Memory Bank somewhere. We KNOW once we are His Child. our past our sins our constant falling and failing, can be not only forgiven but ETERNALLY FORGOTTEN as long as we allow God the Holy Spirit to lead, guide and steer us onwards in life’s progressive journey of sanctification.
As far as the east is from the west so far has He removed our transgressions.
We are forgiven we are HIS. Halleluah!
Do we have we still have an erased but not obliterated memory of someone else’s actions towards us?
Perhaps it’s time to empty the Delete Box.
We are dearly loved as Christ’s REDEEMED.
Blessings and love in this day.
Great analogy, Faye!
Ouch! There is an individual in my life who brings constant emotional pain…. I ignore. I avoid. I do not dwell. I give no merit to the behavior. But I haven’t forgotten. It is all listed in my heart. Hugs to you for the kind encouragement to delete the sorrow caused by these evil behaviors.
