“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
We may have plans and ideal images of our lives, but ultimately God's plan will always be the best for our lives. If we were a living house, we must work everyday to better our foundation so that God can prepare and build a palace in place of a cottage. The usual cracks and leaks must be fixed too, but sometimes God has bigger plans for us that may even mean knocking down something we've built before. My goals to better build my foundation according to God's Will starts with these:
- Forgive Myself, take note of the things I have gain, and forgive myself on the things I lost.
- Trust Him, He has and always will be there guiding me.
- Learn to see God's love for me.
