Every relationship ought to be enhancing, fulfilling and enjoyable. No one is an island and although we are all wonderfully and fearfully made and are perfect in the eyes of our Maker, we know the reward in any functional relationship or partnership is greater. Ecclesiastes 4:9 tells us ‘two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labour’.
Having an understanding of what relationships ought to be, you can agree with me that many relationships today are far from this, they do not embody the enhancement, fulfilment and enjoyment element that characterise godly and healthy relationships. Many of us have suffered unspeakable abuse (physical and emotional), humiliation and disrespect all in the name of relationships. Dysfunctional and unhealthy relationships have been known to cause many to wallow in the pits of pain, depression, resentment, bitterness and low self-esteem. This can’t be right – relationships are supposed to enhance and not diminish. And if you share my sentiments then you are definitely in the right place.
This is why ‘The God Kind’ (TGK) was birthed. I am passionate about seeing godly relationships formed and nurtured in my generation. I have seen too many amazing young women become a shadow of themselves because of relationships they ought not to be in or in relationships they have overstayed their welcome. Too many wonderful ladies walking around messed up, paranoid and resentful. So TGK is committed to counteracting the lies and dysfunctionality that are subtly being injected into relationships in this generation. TGK aims to encourage women to aspire for godly relationships.
On the blog, I will be sharing the Truth (God’s Word), timeless relationship principles, past experiences (for the purpose of edification) and answering any questions you may have.
In the words of the late Dr. Myles Munroe, ‘where purpose is unknown, abuse is inevitable‘. TGK is committed to re-introducing the concept of healthy and functional relationships to this generation. The aim is to get you very comfortable with what godly relationships should look like that you will never again settle for less than God’s best.
‘Where Purpose is unknown, abuse is inevitable’ – Dr Myles Munroe
TGK would focus mainly on dating, courtship and marriage relationships, but I believe that there will be general principles you would find on here applicable to all other kinds of relationships – so be open minded!
NOTE: I don’t claim to have monopoly of knowledge when it comes to relationships and would be happy to hear from you in the comments section. We are all in this together and together we will overcome.
