Frozen & The Polar Vortex

Matthew 6:25-34 “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? 27 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?

And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, 29 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?

 “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ 32 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. 33 Seek the Kingdom of God[a] above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.

Last week, most of Americans were introduced to the #PolarVortex, a swirling pool of extremely cold air located tens of thousands of feet in the atmosphere. In some places, the temperatures dropped to a -32 degrees making it dangerous to go outside for any length of time. This polar vortex affected most of the US and even residents of NYC were encouraged to stay inside their homes due to the cold. 

It is interesting that we brought in the new year with a storm. This should not set our pace for the year. Storms will come. They cause us to change our plans, cancel trips, miss school, stay inside, and thaw out. Thousands of flights were cancelled causing 100 million in losses for airlines. It proves how feeble even the most powerful industries in our country truly are. No one can predict our futures but God. Why should we worry then and not trust that no matter what storm comes our way, we can always trust in Him. He is stronger than any storm. How did Jesus handle storms? In one instance, He slept through a storm. In another instance, He walked on the crashing waves. Jesus faced the storms and encouraged others to do so. 

In the new movie “Frozen”, Anna and a daring mountain man battle the elements to save a kingdom from destruction. Anna is fearless when it comes to encountering everest. How fearless are we in embracing our storms? Are we brave enough to tell the truth when we could get in trouble? Do we trust in God even when we are afraid? Are we too afraid to tell others about Jesus? Don’t let the storms of life keep you locked inside forever.
