Do you ever forget what you were doing? Or forget what you went into the kitchen for?
You go back to where you came from just to remember what you were doing? Normal forgetfulness is aggravating. I think it also comes with age. (I’m not referring to the sad condition of alzheimers.) I’m just referring to everyday forgetfulness.
This is how God is with our sins when we ask for forgiveness. Psalm 103:12 – “as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.”
When we go to Him and ask forgiveness, He forgets our sins. It’s like us going into the kitchen and just forget what we went in for. But if we don’t accept His forgiveness and keep going back to Him with our sin, it’s as if we don’t accept His grace. It’s like going back to where we came from so we can remember what we went in the kitchen for.
Don’t go back to God with your sin. When we ask Him to forgive us, we need to forgive ourselves and accept His mercy and His grace and His forgiveness. Don’t feel like you have to “remind Him” how bad you were……….He doesn’t want reminded. He loves us so much that He has already forgotten and never to be remembered again.
So the next time you forget what you went into the kitchen for, instead of getting angry, just whisper a little prayer to God thanking Him for His forgiveness and forgetfulness.
That’s the greatest memory loss ever!!
PS – I just found out my dear sweet little friend from church, Franceile Gorbett passed away. She suffered from Alzheimers Disease. May Franceile enjoy her reunion with her husband and her Lord as she walks the streets of gold in heaven. Now I know why God layed on my heart to write about memory loss. Franceile has no more memory loss!
