You Don't Know What You've Got Until Its Gone

You ever been in a relationship and you did not appreciate the person you were with until they were no longer there?  There was a song that came out I can remember who sung it but it was a lady with some dreadlocks sitting in back of a car singing, "You Don't Know What You've Got Until Its Gone."  Most of the time we think of this concept in the context of relationships but this is not always the case.  For example, you ever had a car and the freedom to go wherever you wanted to go and then your car breaks down for a few days?  You could then testify that you don't know what you've got until its gone.  Another example, have you ever had a family member whom you were close to die?  No matter how well you knew the person the full impact that person had on your life could not be measured until that person was no longer in your life.  Why is that? Simple because you don't know what you've got until its gone.

Still there?  Still marinating on Sunday's message!  Often times it only when we walk away from God that we can to truly appreciate how AWESOME, EXCELLENT, LOVING, CARING, COMPASSIONATE, GRACIOUS, FORGIVING, WISE, UNDERSTANDING etc. GOD is.  Go ahead and tell the truth about it was only when you walked away from God that you truly came to understand this concept.  We learn that the first step was to admit we had left God.  The next step was to seek after God.  How many of you like the Psalmist can say as the deer pants for the water brooks, so my soul pants for You, O God.

Scripture Reference  42:1
