Misfit Heroes

I guess the only way to start this blog post is by saying that for many years I thought that Christians were supposed to be perfect. I know, I know, nobody’s perfect, but I thought that to be a good Christian you had to at least make it appear as if you have it all together. I thought that in order to represent Christ you shouldn’t have any problems, because if you have problems, then you must not be a very good Christian. Like many of you, I looked up to people I viewed as better than me, and I compared myself to them. The result of that was that I felt I was not good enough for God to use me. Little did I know that every single person who I looked up to had a story, and those stories weren’t always pretty. The more I got to know about them; however, the more I realized how much all of humanity has in common. We are all broken, but God has the ability to redeem anyone’s story. 

Since then, He has stirred a passion in my heart for the stories of the people who are far from perfect and yet have made incredible differences in the world. The stories of the outcasts, the misfits, the broken, and the unqualified all inspire in me an awe for God’s amazing power of redemption. Over the next few weeks, I would like to share with you some of the stories that I have found so inspiring. These people are all ordinary people like you and I. The only reason their stories are so extraordinary is because of God. So I would like to invite you to come along with me on this journey of discovering the ordinary side of the heroes we all admire, the broken side of the beauty, and just how much God loves to take a mess and make it a masterpiece!

This song perfectly sums up the theme of this series and I made the video as a sort of ‘trailer’ for it. Please watch it and let me know in the comments what you think!
