sharing how movies embed wonderful messages, I would like to share some insight
I gained from in the innocent, but incredible Disney movie Frozen.
I recently saw this
movie, which I definitely recommend going to see. If you have not yet seen Frozen and do not want the end to be
spoiled, I would not read this because I shed some light on the ending.
This movie is about
an ice princess, Elsa, who has the power to create snow and ice. She spends her
whole life in fear of hurting her beloved sister by freezing her heart. When
she finally lets herself go, she isolates herself to prevent hurting anyone. Though
when around people, Elsa is still in such a state of fear that she causes more
harm than good. It isn’t until Anna, Elsa’s sister, jumps in front of Elsa to
prevent her from dying that the ice princess realizes love is the one force that can overcome her fear. She realizes that
her fear is what caused her to hurt and freeze everyone and everything. She
finally is able to unfreeze the town and save her sister, because her lack of
fright allows her to control her powers.
This realization applies to our lives as
well. One of the most common phrases in the Bible is “Fear not.” Do not let
fear control your life, but rather let the unconditional, PERFECT love of
Christ bring you joy.
Remember, “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives
out fear…” (1 John 4:18).
