It happens to all of us. Everything seems to be going great for us, then we get news that knocks life right out from under us. That was what happened to this author, and this is why she decided to write this book. Tracy thought her job was secure, but to her shock and surprise, she was let go from her job, or 'fired' would be a better way of putting it. In this book, Tracy talks about the way it happened the day she lost her job, her life being unemployed, and emotions she had to deal with because of her job loss. And she says how she used that time of unemployment to build a stronger relationship with the Lord.
Tracy Deitz opens her heart in her debut book, “Employed By God,” taking readers on her journey from the time she was fired through trusting God with her life and trusting Him for His will in her life. This wasn’t an easy journey, and I appreciate Tracy digging deep into her soul, being honest about her feelings of disappointment, discouragement, being angry with God, and even trying some things that are not of God to find fulfillment. But through it all, she makes the right choices and uses her time and talents to draw closer to the Lord.
Tracy’s story is easy to read and relate to because she is speaking from her heart. She is teaching the reader what worked for her in her time of distress. She shows that when we give our life to God and strive to grow closer to Him, He will give us a peace and comfort that only He can give.
This would be a wonderful Bible study and Tracy helps by including study questions and scriptures at the end of each chapter. I highly recommend this book to anyone going through a loss of any kind.
