Under Construction

Ever feel like you are undertaking a personal remodeling project you were completely unaware of or prepared for....

C.S. Lewis - in the book Mere Christianity.

"Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At
first, perhaps, you can 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 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 going to be made into a decent little cottage; but He is
building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself."

I do.
