ERASE BUT NOT OBLITERATE

Good Morning!

         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.

Psalm 103v10

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.

 

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

    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.
