My story of answered prayer for marriage restoration
My journey to marriage restoration began with prayer, and the decision to seek God for restoration and to put my trust and hope in His Word and promises. Very soon it became clear to me that if I wanted a change in my husband and marriage, I needed first to allow God to change me. I passed through a prolonged season of healing and waiting during which the boundaries of my faith were stretched and tested. I was learning to hold on and persevere despite the discouraging circumstances. However, God has been faithful, and He answered my prayer for marriage restoration.
Below is a sneak peek and I hope you will head over to All Round Jesus to read the rest and learn how God answered my prayer for marriage restoration.
Be sure to pin me for later!
This was just one of many nights when I was lying in bed awake, tears streaming down my face. I heard the breathing of my husband in his corner of the bed, peacefully sleeping, not aware of my pain. It’s not supposed to be this way, I thought. Marriage is not supposed to be this way.
I remembered the wonderful and promising start of our love and marriage. Then after the death of my mother-in-law, the fabric of our relationship changed. My husband fell into the pit of depression, starting to add layers of isolation to his soul and body. Then another crisis hit. I wanted to have children but felt that we were on different pages, far away in our worlds. Month after month the alienation deepened. I felt alone, abandoned and rejected as a wife and a woman. I was devastated and desperate. Bitterness, anger, and resentment were filling my heart. Quarrels or cold silence ruled our days. Our marriage was dying. But God…
The first answer to my prayer for marriage restoration
I started to seek God intensely and pour out my heart to Him, praying that He restores my marriage and my husband. My husband was not a believer, so this spiritual gap between us was also a source of sadness and anguish. I developed the daily habit to read and study the Bible, journaling verses and my thoughts and prayers, listening to the specific message of the Holy Spirit. In my deepest anguish of an abandoned woman, God spoke to me with Isaiah chapter 54.
