How can I leave you again?

Do you remember the song, How can I leave you again? It’s by John Denver. From back in the ’70s.

Di di di di di la la la la la la
In a spaceship over the mountains
Chasing rainbows in the setting sun
Leaving heart and home for the city of angels
I feel my life is undone

There are pathways winding below me
In pleasure I’ve gone where they go
In the quiet stillness I can hear symphonies
The loveliest music I know

How can I leave you again
I must be clear out of my mind
Lost in a storm I’ve gone blind
Oh, how can I leave you again

Oh, it’s been a long time since I’ve listened
Still longer since I’ve walked with you
For the first time I know what I’m missing
Some answers are no longer true

So I question the course that I follow
I’m doubtful and deep in despair
My heart is full of impossible notions
Can it be you no longer care?

How can I leave you again
I must be clear out of my mind
Lost in a storm I’ve gone blind
Oh, how can I leave you again

How can I leave you again
I must be clear out of my mind
Lost in a storm I’ve gone blind
Oh, how can I leave you again

We probably think of that as some person we’ve known.
Left.
And went back to.

But have you ever looked at the song with God as the One we’ve known?
Left?
And Gone back to?

You know, it actually does work. The lyrics tell the story.

See if it isn’t true for you.

If you’ve known God and left Him, it might give you a reason to return.

If you know God, but haven’t left Him, it might give you reasons to hang on when things get tough.

If you don’t understand why Christians can feel so strongly about God, maybe it’ll give some insight.

And if you’ve known God, left Him, and returned again, you’ll really get it. And understand why it’s something we really don’t want to do yet again!

It’s real. It’s true. It’s part of my story.
