Am I Grasping For The Wind?

Scotty, my Youth Pastor, asked us to write our own Eulogy for class.. along with that we were asked to read the first seven chapters of Ecclesiastes. I pray and beg God that this is His will for me. I so desire to make a huge difference in this world by speaking to people and sharing my story and His love! Here is my Eulogy:

Corina Anne Spinazzola was a woman who sought God. At the age of 15 she met God and He made His home in her heart. Before that day her life had been polluted by mental illnesses, distorting her view of love. Just months later a family rescued her and made her their daughter. They demonstrated God's love in the way that He adopts His children, how He doesn't leave us as orphans. Many struggles arose and they came together and journeyed into the healing and restoration God had planned for her. As she transformed from a girl into a woman God put a burden on her heart to help others in desperate situations, to share with the world the richness and justice of a life filled with God's presence. The irony is that as a teenager in high school she had extreme fear of public speaking, even reading from the textbook in class would send her into a panic attack. Yet, the fear was overcome when God challenged her to speak in front of her Sunday school class which, led into speaking to hundreds and thousands of different people around the world. She truly desired to love God above all. With her gone I ask this question. What was Corina Anne Spinazzola remembered for? I know she would not want to be remembered as someone grasping for the wind, but someone who made a difference in the world for the kingdom of God.

I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and indeed, all is vanity and grasping for the wind. Ecclesiastes 1:14

Please pray for me people! I'm seeking and asking God that this be His will for me. I'd really appreciate your prayers also.

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. Mark 11:24
