The Builder…

β€œImagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house.Β πŸƒπŸ’—πŸƒ

At first, perhaps, you really understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. πŸ‘

πŸ’•But presently, He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense.Β πŸŒΏπŸ’–

πŸ’•πŸŒΏπŸŒΊWhat on earth is He up to?

The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of – throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards.

You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈ but He is building a palace.

He intends to come and live in it Himself.” ― C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
