Sonya Watkins is attending services at Mount Carmel Baptist Church, where she has been a member since childhood, when she first sees a tall, handsome man she believes might be her Mr. Right. He introduces himself as Jake and asks her for a ride home. Sonya is thrilled. Although she’s twenty-eight, Sonya has never been on a date before. Like so many Christian singles, she chooses to pay attention only to the man’s appearance before falling head over heels.
When Sonya learns that Jake lied about his name, she is worried but chooses to ignore that red flag and numerous others for the chance to be with him. They begin dating and then rush into marriage, as she seeks to make things right with God. But Sonya soon discovers that her dream man may turn out to be Mr. Wrong after all. She supports him through every layoff, financial dilemma, and get-rich-quick scheme; even so, he grows abusive and violent toward her. Can Sonya find a way out and escape the heartache she has fallen into?
God Only Knows shows that God’s love for his children will always supersede the mistakes we make in life. No matter how deep a hole we put ourselves into, God’s arms are long enough to pulls us out.
