What happens when life doesn’t turn out the way you planned?
All of us have dreams and plans for our future. We set out with aspirations and expectations that define who we are and what we hope to become. But when we boldly move forward without God, we are prone to disappointment and attacks from the enemy. Some of us become victims, damaged in ways we never imagined, surrounded by our broken pieces and wondering how we ended up at this place of desolation.
Tracey Glenn was one of those victims. As she lived life without God in sight, Satan ensnared her in his trap. Placing her value as a person in the opinions of others led to date rape in college and catapulted Tracey into years of self-loathing, self-destruction, and self-sabotage as she attempted to measure up to society’s standards—but that wasn’t the plan God had for her. Told with grit, humor, and raw authenticity, Gathering the Wayward Heart is one woman’s story of how God protects and rescues Tracey from harrowing circumstances and near-catastrophic events to establish her feet on new ground.
Gathering the Wayward Heart comes with
- a study guide for each chapter,
- relevant Scripture verses,
- introspective questions, and
- an opportunity to grow deeper in faith, pursue victory over the enemy, and find healing in the Lord.
Tracey’s story inspires those trapped by shame from events in their past to know they have a Savior who pursues, protects, and heals. God does not promise us a life without sorrow or trouble, but He does give us peace to move beyond tragedy into the life He has for us.
“I am an overcomer because God gave me victory over tragedy. Through all of my trials, I discovered myself, not the person I am in this world, but who I am in Christ.”
