Why am I here? I mean really, at this place in my life? It's a question I've asked before but for some reason, here I am again. Everything seems alright on the outside. I'm still functioning through my day to day responsibilities. But is this all there is? It's not like Iím asking for a big sign to fall out of the sky telling me what to do with my life; I just want to know what Iím supposed to do next. Anyhow, all I know is that I canít be the only one asking these same questions. I mean, its graduation and everyone keeps asking me what I'm going to do with my life! Like I'm supposed to know! I've made good decisions most of the time. I mean, except for last year when I totally strayed from the life I was brought up in. It seems like it was forever ago, I can't believe that it was just last year. I know that I never imagined that everything could go so wrong so fast. I really honestly did the whole ĎJesus take the Wheelí thing like that song says. I had to though because that is the only thing I knew to do; the only thing left to do. Iím glad I did. Now, Jesus really means something to me. I know that He loves me and that is so awesome! I see everything different than I did before. I wish I had given my life to Him before everything happened. He was trying to get through to me but I just didnít want to listen. I was so selfish. Iím so thankful to Him...but now what? You can tell that everyone at church knows everything. I donít know how God could use me here. I guess I should just keep praying. Surely, there must be a purpose for my life because Iím still here.

A couple of thoughts: It would help to divide your essay into paragraphs, one for each thought.

You might be able to grab the reader's heart more if you explained what happened with you in the last year, before you came back to Him. You don't have to lay out all the nitty gritty details, but a little more would help. Then you could draw a contrast between where you were (when at your lowest point) and where you are now.

Plus, you could then bring that in with something like "I don't know where I'm going, but I do know where I was and where I am."

The ending is very strong--I'm still here. Good statement, with lots of possibilities as to where you might go from here.

May God guide you as you take it step-by-step with Him.
