Before Dawn

I woke up this morning clinging to my sheet and pillow. But, before I type any further, I should probably explain that my bedroom is my most favorite place in all the world. My bedroom is my tabernacle; my safe place. In my bedroom, I have the most intimate conversations with God while sprawled across a sea of decorative tapestry. Married people have pillow talk but, I'm not married so in the wee hours of the night, I talk to God. I pour out my heart. I open my soul like a book and in return God comforts me by giving me insight. Today was no different. The following is a list I composed while laying wide awake.

"No, In all these things we are more than conquerors thorough him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 8:37-39 NIV)
