As we are stuck inside the house, I decided to read a new book titled Relationship goals, by pastor Michael Todd. I watched his relationship goals youtube series, and I was blessed by it. It was such a great series to watch whether you are single, engaged, or married. I was even more excited when pastor Michael Todd wrote a book based on the youtube series. I wanted to write a quick review of the book and a few of my favorite quotes from it.
I want to start by saying it was hard for me to put the book down the more I kept reading it, which explains why I was still up at 3 a.m. And what I love about the book is the reference to scriptures throughout the text. “The Bible, in fact, is the greatest source for relationship wisdom, and it’s time we start applying it to relationships as they really exist” (Relationship Goals, p.24). At the beginning of the chapter, he spoke about how he met his beautiful wife and that they dated since they were at the age of 15! He also has a picture of his family in the book. I want to add that everyone’s love story is different. Not all of us will meet our soulmate at the age of 15. But if you let God lead you and you trust him to guide you, he will write your love story if you let him.
Pastor Michael Todd also mentioned something about a list -basically to rip up the list. I know most of us have a list of what we look for in a man or woman. For the ladies, we may want him to be tall, handsome, rich, and with a nice smile lol. “This shows that most of our list tends to be a little (or a lot) superficial and might reflect not what we actually need in a partner but more of just what we want at the time.” Attraction is important in a romantic relationship, but let us also look at other essential traits before choosing a partner. Pastor Mike also added the verse from Proverbs 14:12 “There is a path before each person that seems right but it ends in death”. God wants the best for us, even in a relationship. He wants us to win in relationships. Our relationships, even on this sinful earth, can still be like heaven on earth. “God instructs us, guides us, and teaches us how to aim at the right relationship”- Relationship Goals by pastor Michael Todd. I hope you are thinking about buying the book for yourself or even as a gift for someone else.
“If you let God lead you, he will help us find the right target for our relationship” -Michael Todd. I will not tell you too much about the book because I would love for you all to go out and buy the book. We should all aim to win in relationships. Let God lead us. Let us not look at what the world considers “relationship goals,” but let us go to God who knows the beginning and the end. He knows what is best for us.
