I read an article about the syndrome called ‘Hyperthymesia’ – A Newly Discovered Memory In Which People Remember Every Day Of Their Lives


Hyperthymesia is a syndrome that allows one to remember details of their everyday life for years. While this might seem advantegeous, there is a huge downside.

The problem with the syndrome is that people who have it have a hard time living in the present, because their minds are constantly remembering and living in the past.

The same problem may happen to me and you readers if we keep living in the past for what you have done, well or bad. If you have done well, keep straining forward; if not, don’t be disheartened and frustrated too much so that Satan entraps you to a spiritual bankruptcy.

The Apostle Paul said in Philippians 3:13-14;

“Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”

We need to go forward not to slide back in our journey of pilgrimage until we reach the Gate of Heaven.

For those who suffer from what you have done in the past, let us hear from God’s Word in Isaiah 43:25;

“I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions, for My own sake, and remembers your sins no more.”

From this verse, I feel that God suffers from ‘Hyperthymesia’ by His Being as Omniscient(all-knowing) God who knows and remembers everything you and I have done in the past and will do in the future. That’s the reason why He says, “I remember your sins no more FOR MY OWN SAKE!”

For Holy God, remembering our sins, inequities, transgressions, rebellions against Him will be a hard thing to bear with. Jehovah God said in Isaiah 43:25;

“Your New Moon festivals and your appointed feasts my soul hates. They have become a burden to me; I am weary of bearing them.


Lord Jesus, thank You for washing us with Your Own Blood and making us whiter than the snow and wool in Father’s sight. Amen.
