There is a place I go to in my mind
where I can clear the fog and subdue my anxiety,
An endless sea of sweet smelling yellow flowers
I don't know what kind, I just know they awaken my soul
and invite me to run and be free in the cool breeze.
I love to lay down among the yellow fragrant flowers
and gaze at the blue sky with pillows of clouds that look like angels.
I imagine Jesus lying beside me,
carrying on conversation about love, life and eternity
how the fog and anxiety only lasts for moments
but His dedication and salvation endures forever.
It is like we talk for hours before I must return to reality,
the reality of this world where He has yet to return.
But upon leaving my meadow
He assures me the fog and the anxiety is gone.
I am free to be me and to live a life of harmony,
to fly like the angels fly and to love like I've never loved before.
To release my mind's worries and my heart's sins into His arms
as he throws them into the depths of the sea
for me to never think of them ever again
and to never be judged as he is my intercessor
awaiting at God's right hand
as I await His return to this world
to get all of us who believe.
But until then when life gets difficult,
I retreat to my meadow…
were I meet up with my Savior again
He reminds me of his sacrificial love
and how my mind's fog and anxiety is only for a short while,
that peaceful eternity is soon to come.
