I once heard this analogy – our relationship with God is like a house with different rooms. If God was the wind that comes through the front door – we can keep some doors shut, only letting the wind (God) into some rooms.
We let Him into the lounge, or the kitchen, but we don’t let Him in everywhere. You and I may let Him in to our church life and maybe some of our home life. But we leave Him out of school or some friendships.
God wants to be in every part of our lives – He wants to be in “every room of your house.”
