Sink or Swim

There’s something to be said about feeling like a fish out of water. I recently had that experience and today it reminds me of a time back then where I had to sink or swim. It relates to my last post https://wordpress.com/post/piecesofgoretty.blog/225 where I discussed being stripped.

There I was no one to turn to and no place to live in a matter of days, engulfed in grief and pain, blindly living out my days in as close to mummy like as I could to avoid facing my…me. I was a fish out of water and I either had to…Exactly. Sink or swim.

I made my own plans and attempts at getting my situation under control, which to me meant finding a place to rent, have it be it an efficiency. I had finally landed a job I believed I would stick to for a while. Actually, in those days, I had no choice. Anyway, none of my “plans” passed the reaching of a day-to-day get through it kind of life mantra goal.

Thank God, He had his own plans.

Psalms 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.

…I had to eventually learn how to swim God’s way. That sometimes meant getting out of His way…and my own.

My name is Goretty Gordon, and this is my life's journey. It's filled with heartache, turmoil, and grief but also the greatness that comes out of my life's storms. Being free of past hurt and sorrow is a must to be able to see the light in you and at the end of the dark tunnels, life drags us through. I search for my peace and find it in the unpeaceful until the presence of inner peace truly begins to shine in and through me. This is the journey of my life, then, now and so on as I find and hold on dearly to peace.
