“Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. 🍃💗🍃
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. 👍
💕But presently, He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. 🌿💖
💕🌿🌺What 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: ☀️☀️☀️ but He is building a palace.
He intends to come and live in it Himself.” ― C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
