So I recently got selected to be in a pageant this fall and while I’m excited, I’m also kind of worried that I’ll become self-centered and drift away from God. I really want to stay close to him and not become bratty and self-centered, so can you help me? What are some good ideas? Thanks!! 🙂

Colossians 3:17 ; And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

The fact that you want to stay on track with God is so amazing, considering that so many people wouldn’t even think about God in these situations. I completely agree with the person who answered before me, especially that you should stay in prayer for God to humble you and keep you away from temptation. I know how it feels to already be self-centered, and wanting to get back on track with God. I know that it’s a lot easier said than done to stay focused on God. One of the things that helped the most for me, was to set aside time everyday for prayer, worship, and Gods word. It may seem small, but giving God your time, (even if it is only 10-15 minutes a day), will really boost your relationship with him, and really focus you on him. Also, try to take notes when you read the bible, and write down how what your reading has to do with your life. If you have trouble doing that, I recommend reading a Bible devotion ( they are free on the YouVersion Bible app). You should also have a group of Christian friends or counselors, such as your youth group or youth leaders at church, and sometimes just talking with these people about God can really help you. Remember to keep on praying, and I know that you will do fine! I will be praying for you too, and if you need help with anything, I will be here for you:)
