Anyway, am at the end of my work day, at the end of a busy week. I'm done with my planning for the next week and so here I am.... blogging again! i was browsing through some of the blogs I frequently read and came acorss one that had this C.S.Lewis quote. I must confess that apart from the Narnia series, I have not read any other of C.S.Lewis' books. But I have to admit that he is a brilliant, God inspired, insightful writer. Here's what caught my eye.
Please do let me know what you think!
"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 in and live in it Himself."
-C. S. Lewis
I was thinking.... How do I get him to build me this mansion? The answer is surprisingly simple.... I just have to hand over the blueprint I'd made, and allow him to make the necessary changes!
