Sometimes it drifts back in time
And I have to snap it back into the reality of today
As I know it can become a fine line
Of what’s been, what’s real, and what’s just imagined

Sometimes I wonder how I did I survive
What kept me sane during such emotional pain
Then time after time, myself I had to remind
It was the Lord’s grace that kept me clothed and in my right mind

Just one bad experience can cause a detrimental mental change
As the mind is fragile and can break under strain
Or a series of negative events
Can dominate the mind to constantly replay them
Negative thoughts of the past can stifle progress of today
As the feelings of “it’s no use trying” can make you lose faith
That you can overcome or do something great
So, press forward and put negative thoughts behind
And thank God for being clothed and in your right mind

Scripture Reference Mark 5:15
Background
I used to think clothed and in my right mind was just an old saying, but it is based on actual Biblical events leading up to Mark 5:15. Who hasn’t said at one point in their life “I’m going crazy” or I’m about to lose my mind”. The reality is, losing it is easier than you think, even if it’s just temporarily. For example, when driving, and someone cuts you off, you can end up doing and saying things in a flash, that you wouldn’t ordinarily do or say. So, I know longer see the phrase as just some old saying, I learned to thank God that I’m clothed and in my right mind.
