Let it go, let it go! Can’t hold it back anymore. Turn away and slam the door.
This song has been ringing a lot these days. Admit it, you like the song. I like it, too. The beat, the lyrics, and everything of it. The sisterhood essence of the movie Frozen has contributed greatly to its success, and well, the story is heartwarming.
We encounter events in our life on which we feel like we can’t hold it any longer–the pressure, the problems, the issues, and personal matters. Count me in, will you? Because I do have such events in my life, too. I’m a human being alright, and thank God, I’m a Christian woman.
If we feel pressured to the point that we can’t hold back anymore, what do we do? Cry? Give up? Or do we simply ignore the feeling–a passivity? If you’re going to ask me, I rather cry than ignore it. I don’t really recommend passiveness. Passivity is never been good. And oh, please forgive me God, for I am quite a victim of this trap!
Anyway, how about we try to twist some words…
Let it go. Let it go! Don’t hold it back anymore. Turn around and pray to the Lord~
I think I didn’t quite rhyme the lyrics but, oh well, rhyming isn’t the point here. My point is the context of the whole thought. Even though I like the song, I don’t agree with the whole context of the message, I mean, why would you turn away and slam the door–from who? From everyone else? That’s isolation, isn’t it? I don’t think that the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross just to isolate ourselves in the end.
