I, even I, AM He that blotteth out thy transgressions for Mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.
Put Me in rememberance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.
~ Isaiah 43:25-26

When we ask the LORD God through His Son, Jesus Christ, for forgiveness He IS faithful in hearing our pleas and in His great and glorious Love, He redeems us our sins. For His own sake He cleanses us from our impurities that we humbly bring before Him, and promises never to remember them. 

I think of this as I look back at my life, knowing all the horrific sins that I have commited against my God, and my heart cries in an inexpressible thankfulness. Being forgiven, being cleansed, being made new by Christ's purifying blood IS more than I could ever deserve! And I pray that the Lord Will keep me seperate from the sins of my past, and keep my eyes looking forward to the completion of His Will being accomplished. 

Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.
Behold, I Will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I Will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. 
~ Isaiah 43:18-19

In looking forward, I can remember the Lord's wonderful promise of being reunited with God for ever! because I am a child of the King! 

Open ye the gates; that the righteous nation which keepeth the Truth may enter in.
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH IS everlasting strength.
~ Isaiah 26:2-4

No matter what trials our lives come to see, or what calamity visits us upon this earth, the children of God MUST remember and be comforted ~ KNOWING that God Will bring all things to an end, and redeem His people. 
!!! Thank You, LORD God ~ Thank You, Lord, Jesus ~ Thank You, Holy Spirit !!!
