There is a peculiar amphibian that lives in the Appalachian Mountains called the wood frog.  If it tried to survive on its own in the mountain winters, it would die burning energy to try to stay alive.  Instead, each winter this creature allows itself to freeze, essentially dying, in order to live.  It knows there will be new life each spring when the snow melts.  We could learn a lot from the tree frog.  So many times we catch ourselves burning our energy and fighting on our own to manage our lives when we really just need to let go and let God handle it for us.  The good news for us is once we submit to Christ who died for us, we can live in Him and unlike our friend the tree frog, our new life is eternal.
