One morning, God stopped me with this verse: “Be still and know that I am God.” He said: Gabrielle. What’s your hurry? Why are you worried? I have you and your family in the palm of My hand. Be still and breathe. I have you.
All of my experiences, the good, the bad, the ugly and the dark, went into the making of the individual that is present today. God used it all to fashion someone who I believe is caring, thoughtful, kind and considerate.
Over the past few years, I have been going on an identity journey. This journey has been revelatory in many ways. Very little knowledge about my origins and beginning is known. I know I was born in Korea and was in an orphanage in Incheon by the time I was 21 months old.
With my Type A personality, I tend to be a bit of a worrier. Too often
I realize my mind has wandered to the “what ifs” in life. Being very experienced with this skill, it does not need to be a huge life or death type of concern. Oh no, my mind is also capable of making a simple fear seem very significant.
