Christine sent the results of her dig into Ephesians 3:20-21 and it brought me back to do some more digging myself. She said I could share with you, and I hope you find something more as well.
“Hello, this passage is so energizing! I remember a quote by C.S Lewis in “Mere Christianity” that I think sums up what exceeding our dreams might look like and helps me picture this:”
“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.”
What tree-palace does God have in mind for you?
