Anyway, while I was watching Frozen, I couldn't get over how much I identified with Elsa. Her fears were holding her back. She was shutting people out and keeping to herself because she felt she had to. At first, I was like, "hey, I could build an ice castle and never go to school again". That's a great coping strategy, right? Yeah, probably not the best long term plan. [Plus, I don't have magical freezing powers. Bummer.]
After I got over my odd ice castle cravings, I started thinking about the fears I needed to let go in my life. Is it time to let go of my insecurities? To start living up to my potential? To be the best version of me?
Then I got super overwhelmed. There was so much I needed to let go in order to be the best person that I could, I had no idea where to start. Know the feeling?
Last night I saw this quote on Pinterest and it got me thinking about the song on a whole new level.
I think it's interesting that at the end of the movie, what ends up taming Elsa's powers and saving Anna from being frozen forever is an act of true love. There is no act of love more true than that of the atoning sacrifice of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Because of Him, we can let all of our fears, doubts, pains, and heartaches go.
Let go, and Let God.
