He gave me something on salt a couple of years ago, and I wanted to read that book you're referring to Martin, but never got around to getting it.
I also wanted to share something else. I had no remembrance (because I prayed for Him to take it from my memory when I was a child of about 11 or 12) of abuse that happened to me when I was a child. Four months after I came to the Lord, for no apparent reason, the memory of it all came flooding back to me in detail, one after another, as He healed me of the damage. There was a tangible anointing of His presence while this happened, and I sobbed through the four hours that this took, and then there was no more pain, no more tears.
So I know from personal experience, He can both take the memories, and give them back to heal you from them, then take them from you again, leaving only the painless knowledge that X happened to you, but you can't remember X details anymore, just that it happened.
I always think of this when I read the scripture about Him drying up our tears in heaven. In the realm of His Spirit/anointing, He does dry up the tears, but there has to be tears present, for Him to dry them up in the first place. I think this is why. We carry around a kind of "band-aid" on our hearts until this happens, because the wound beneath it is not really healed. But for a season, it keeps it from becoming infected with bitterness, until the Master Healer's season to heal it comes, and so thoroughly it's like it never even happened.
I also think of this when I recall that when I think of the healing evangelist of the last century, Katherine Kuhlman's response to a reporter who asked her about her 2 year marriage that she was not to have entered into and later repented of. She said something to the effect of, "That wasn't me, that person is dead."
I don't think she was trying to be coy, I think that when He heals us from sin or the effects of sin, He does so well, it's like it happened to another person. Blessings...
