This is what our beautiful courtyard looked like upon returning to school this past week. Frozen.
My three year old grandaughter loves Frozen. Disney’s Frozen, that is. And Elsa. I told her my school pond was frozen. She asked if Elsa did it.
Not Elsa. God did it. In His infinite attention to detail. He created a time and a season for everything. It is winter. It is the time to be frozen.
How about you?
Is this a time or season in your life where you are frozen? Paralyzed by something that feels bigger than you? Afraid to move away from or towards it to tackle it?
I so get it! I’ve been there! I just recently was there! I was frozen!
When I heard after one semester of teaching that I would be dissolving the class I had just gotten comfortable with teaching to move to a caseload twice the size at a much higher level, I froze! I panicked. I felt paralyzed.
But with the help of the most supportive team, and lots of prayer, my anxiety, my fears of the unknown, melted. I began tackling it. One chunk at a time. One iceberg at a time, it melted.
Whatever obstacles you may be facing in your life, remember, spring is coming! A new time. A new season. You do not have to stay there. Just like winter changes from frozen to spring’s time of growth, so should we. We grow stronger, smarter, more equipped with each challenge we face. It’s how God grows us. Accept yours today. Do not remain frozen. Spring is coming. With a little trust in God, your icebergs will melt. Just keep believing! You can do it! You can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens you!
A big shout out to all those who helped me melt my icebergs! Mrs. Kesler! Mrs. Price! Ms. Lemonier! Ms. Bibb! Ms. Griffen! Ms. Soho! Thank you!!! ❄💧☉❤
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
