The idea of this book is to talk about what we go thru mentally as Misfits. When we are trying to make a difference in the world, we can prevent ourselves because of negative thoughts, unbelief or our circumstance. The idea is to relate it to “Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde”, and keep the theme through out the book. You are your own worst enemy and hardest critic. We have to learn to get ourselves out of our own way s we can allow God to use us the way he wants to. “Inside every man there is a battle going on between good and evil” –Mr. Hyde
This collection of essays turns to misfit children as those found in-between socio-cultural, psychological and physical realms. It explores both the possibilities and futilities of negotiating this in-betweenness.
Find Yourself in Jesus and Bring the World Along for the Ride
Author: Matthew Barnett
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Being a misfit does not disqualify you from a dynamic life—it prepares you for it. Matthew Barnett knows a thing or two about misfits. As founder of the Dream Center in Los Angeles, a twenty-four-hour church that ministers to thirty-five thousand hurting people a week, Barnett has seen a little of everything. Gangsters, addicts, orphans, taggers, cutters, the sick, the suffering, the hopeless—all the misfits of the world come through the Dream Center’s doors in search of hope. But when Barnett first arrived in LA, it was he who felt like the misfit. In Misfits Welcome, he shares the simple, life-changing lesson he has learned from twenty years of ministering to the forgotten: Being a misfit prepares you to do the work of the Lord. Have you found yourself in a jarring new era of life? Have your circumstances deviated drastically from your plans? Maybe you’ve felt like a misfit all your life, or maybe you’re still haunted by yesterday’s mistakes. Whatever the case, rejoice! It is at your most broken that you are most ready for what God has in store. Misfits Welcome is not just about embracing the misfits around us—it is about embracing the misfits within us and using them for the glory of God.
