How good is your memory? There is a faculty in our brain that enables us to recall past feelings, sights, sounds, smells and experiences? There is a part of our brain that records, stores and preserves events and gave the capability to bring it back again and again. Although that is a mystery to me, but I am so happy that it is in the part of our brain. I can't imagine life without any memory at all.
Some memories can be blessings, full of comfort, assurance, and joy. My wish is that when I grow old I will be happy and satisfied, recalling the stored up memories of my faith, fellowship and love. Remembering how faithful God is in every step of the way as He has promised; "I will never leave you nor forsake you" (Hebrews 13:5)
But some memory can also be a curse and a torture. Many people as they approach the end of life would give all they possess to erase from their minds the past sins that haunts them. But they don't know that it can be taken away with just one thing. Lay it down at the altar... there where our Heavenly God will forgive them and erase them out forever. He's the One who said, "I have blotted out, like a thick cloud your transgressions." (Isaiah 44:22) The best eraser is honest confession to God... have faith that He has forgiven you and feel the peace of mind and the joy that He replace in your heart.
