A Living House

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 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

For two years I have felt like my heart has had a major “home renovation.” I have had glimpses of it here and there during that time frame, but the past two weeks I have been allowed to see a bigger picture of this renovation.
Note to self:
“Jen, when you get frustrated because you feel like you are waiting, remember your God is a God who provides in the desert and He is always preparing you for a harvest…in His perfect time and for His glory.”
Thank you, God for your transforming love and for dwelling within…
