Well today is the big day! Interview day! The picture of me is from LAST years interview! This is the part of the competition where the judges have 10 minutes to get to know you as an individual. They ask you questions about current events as well as your platform and fact sheet! Last year I walked into interview a little worked up and nervous, but this year I have a whole new outlook on the entire process! I have been so blessed to have received so much help and advice from SO many wonderful friends and family but one thing that stuck out in my mind was something that Mrs. Meece told me after a mock interview. “Don’t pray for the things you already possess, pray to let them shine forth!” She went on to explain to me that I need to THANK God for the opportunities he has given me instead of ask for help. Her words are so true. So many times I find myself asking God to help me remember this dance move, help me have a smile on my face at all times, help me show Him in everything..etc- but so many times I don’t stop and simply thank him for everything he has already done for me. That is something I am doing this week. Thanking my Lord and Savior for everything he has already done.
Yesterday, we had rehearsals from 7:30-11:30 and then 1:00-4:00. We ran through the opener which is to Black Eye Peas’ “I Got a Feelin’”! It’s such a fun and exciting song to dance to! I will have NO problem getting pumped for the night after dancing to that number! Last night I chilled with some of the girls and then went to bed super early because that 6 AM alarm is not something I’m use to hearing!
Today- if you read this post, please send up a small prayer for my interview and me! I want those judges to see MY true personality and ME. Most importantly I want them to see Christ in me.
I was given a bookmark last year from my former directors and it had a verse on the front that has been my “interview verse” ever since..
“But when they DELIVER you up, do not worry about how or what you should SPEAK. For it will be GIVEN to you in that hour what you should speak; for it is not you who speak, but the SPIRIT of your FATHER who speaks in you”
