One of his favorite songs is "Frozen Heart" from the popular "Frozen".
He takes his sword and acts out the motions and sings the lyrics--it is pretty darn cute.
"Beware the frozen heart."
A good life lesson for us all.
Why would a heart be icy--frozen? As I thought this over, it is not from heartbreak. This creates a bruised and torn heart---but there is no ice. A broken heart may cause a protective barrier to be erected around the heart in an effort to prevent further injury---but the heart still feels--it is not icy or frozen.
A frozen heart---is perhaps created when we are unwilling to forgive---hold a grudge--have deep seeded anger which simmers deep within us. I learned a LONG time ago--my anger only hurt me AND gave power over me to the one it was directed toward. Even righteous anger can become a wall between us and God--if we allow it to become an idol in our lives.
Why would I allow anything to stand between God and me? What would be so important that I would give it the power to become more important than my relationship with Him? When anger and resentment rule our lives---they become idols of our hearts.
SO---as the title song says---"LET IT GO!". I for one am not able to let it go with my own power or because I say I will---I have to hand my inability to forgive--my anger over to God--and allow Him to help me give it up. There is a need to tell Him I cannot do this on my own---ONLY with your help. THEN the thaw begins and my heart once again loves in warmth.
Today if you hear his voice,
do no harden you hearts.
