LOVE this book!
The Cause Within You by Matthew Barnett.
From the cover:
"You were created for something amazing . . . and it’s time to discover what it is!
Matthew Barnett, son of megachurch pastor Tommy Barnett, discovered the cause he was made for when he relinquished his dreams of success and began listening for God’s dream for his life instead. When he sensed that God was calling him to serve the poor and powerless, Matthew founded the Dream Center in Los Angeles, a beacon of hope for homeless families, addicts, abused women and children, victims of human trafficking, teen runaways, and many others whose lives are filled with brokenness.
Through his own story and the stories of others whose lives have been transformed, Matthew Barnett points the way for anyone searching for hope that God created them for a great cause—and that He can use all their life experiences, even the most difficult, to fulfill it. Along the way, he shares principles for:
Finding the cause you were made for—and letting your cause find you
Preparing for your cause
Believing in a cause again after being burned or burned out
Experiencing the rewards of a great cause"
This is a book that will not only inspire you to do more for others, but will also remind you why you should do so. This book isn't just about the birth of a church, but a world-wide revolution to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
This is one of my top book recommend this year.
