Singing Elsa’s Song

By

snowIt won an Academy Award for Best Original Song.

Tens of millions of copies were sold.

Parodies and personal versions of the popular song flooded the web and YouTube.

Chances are a rendition has been performed in your very own home.

It is … Let It Go.

There are two main camps of opinion when it comes to this song:

* Those who love it and belt out every word with Elsa-like flair.
* And those who have heard it too many times for sanity and plug their ears or cringe or run away as soon as the first chord sounds.

Whichever camp you side with, I think all of us should – at least in part – sing Elsa’s song.

Let it go! Let it go!

When there are relationships in your life that are toxic or that distract you from your First Love … let them go.

When people slander you (Matthew 5:11-12) … let it go.

When you’re comparing yourself to others … let it go.

When you’re consumed with what people think … let it go.

When worry rules your life, when storms rage around you, when there are idols in your life, when youfeel like you’re never good enough or thin enough or smart enough … LET. IT. GO.

This is not a call to a lackadaisical approach to trials or a nonchalant attitude about conflicts or sin. On the contrary, it is a reminder about SUBMISSION, about SURRENDER. It’s not about giving up “stuff” or giving into “things” but about giving it all over to God. It’s about replacing the pseudo-control we think we have with the supreme and perfect control of God. It looks like this:

We cast our burdens on Him (I Peter 5:7). We flee from sin (2 Timothy 2:22). We wait (Psalm 27:14). We stand still (I Samuel 12:16). We surrender all (Proverbs 3:5-6). We let go of the things that hinder and entangle us (Hebrews 12:1).

Let it go, sister. Don’t hold on anymore to those things that quench the Spirit within you, that hold you back from God’s plan for you. Close the door. Move forward. Stand firm in all He’s made you to be: the daughter of the King.

Let it go!
