Can I Save My Marriage?

Slowly over time, disagreements turned in to arguments. Unmet expectations turned into resentments. It feels like there is nothing you can do to save your marriage. Maybe you aren't the only one that can help. Maybe it is time to let God take on your burden.

Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.
Psalm 55:22

How did we get here?

It wasn't always like this. You and your spouse were happy and in love. They were your best friend. Now, it feels like you are strangers. Perhaps its hard to even be in the same room. Maybe it is worse - you are no longer together and they have moved out. You might be wondering... Can I save my marriage?

It is an interesting question. But perhaps you are asking the wrong question. Maybe the better question to ask yourself is... "Can God save my marriage?"

The answer is yes. The God of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob is a big and powerful. 'Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.'  (Isaiah 40:28)

This means, if He created heaven and earth and he sent His one and only Son for the forgiveness of sin, He can certainly save marriages.

You Don't Have to Do it alone.

So many times in life, we are led to believe that everything should be within our own control. We grew up hearing "the only person who will take care of you is you" or "you create your own destiny". The problem with these beliefs are that you unintentionally exalt yourself above God leaving the only person to save your marriage to be you.

But what do you do when you can't save your own marriage despite trying everything? You've talked to your friends, you have talked to your therapist. Perhaps now, it is time to pray.

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Galatians 2:20

You Can pray for your marriage.

You may not know this but in God, there is hope. You can pray for your marriage to be healed. You can pray for your family to be restored. There are countless testimonies of people with the most impossible of circumstances having their marriage restored by God and living completely new, purpose-filled lives together.

When the two of you were married, you made what is called a covenant. Different from a contract, a covenant is sacred and made with God. That means God is in it with you, and you can pray for Him to restore your marriage. Even if you feel like it is too late. Even if your spouse has left the relationship. Nothing is too big for God. If you have the faith that God created Heaven & Earth, He can save your marriage.

Covenant Keepers DISCIPLES you

Joining Covenant Keepers puts you in a community of believers who pray and encourage one another as they wait for God to move in their marriage. The process is called "Standing For Your Marriage".

During this difficult time, many organizations, sometimes even the church will encourage you to "move on". But for some, they remember their wedding vows and hear God leading them to a different path.

There is an alternative to divorce and it takes courage to walk it out. During your "Stand", God will reveal himself to you and will heal your wounds. He will also work in your spouse as you pray.

God Truly restores Marriages

There are countless testimonies of God healing marriages. Some of these testimonies involve some of the most challenging of circumstances. When God restores a marriage, he does it completely. The pain of arguments, cursing words, broken promises, infidelity and adultery, verbal abuse and other hurts can all be healed through the blood of Jesus Christ.

Covenant Keepers offers powerful bible study resources shared in small groups that meet in homes, churches, and coffee shops all over the world. We even have small groups that meet through video conferencing. Our group leaders are also Covenant Keepers and understand the pain of this moment and know how to share God's Word to bring peace and healing to your life.
