"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."

My life right now, as described by CS Lewis:

"‎Relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing had yet been done."

C. S. Lewis (via rickandrewb)

"Does God want us to suffer? What if the answer to that question is ‘yes’? You see, I don’t think that God particularly wants us to be happy. I think He wants us to love and be loved. He wants us to grow up. You see, we are like children who think that our toys bring us all the happiness there is, and that our nursery is the whole wide world. But something has to drive us out into the world of others, and that thing is suffering. Put simply, pain is God’s megaphone to rouse a deaf world. We are like blocks of stone from which the Sculptor carves a form. The blows of His chisel which hurt us so much are what make us perfect."

C.S. Lewis, “Shadowlands”. (via claveluza)

"I pray because I can’t help myself.
I pray because I’m helpless.
I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping.
It doesn’t change God- it changes me."

C.S. Lewis (via absolutelyinlovewithhim)
