Has your marriage run into a few obstacles lately, and you’re worried that it might start falling apart? Do you love your partner and don’t want to lose them?
Of course, you should fight to stop that from happening, but you should also look out for these signs God is restoring your marriage. If you notice these signs, you should not despair about your current situation because God is sending you a message that it’ll soon pass.
He’ll make it all go away – you just need to keep your faith and be patient. Also, keep trying, fighting, and putting effort into making your marriage work again, and it most definitely won’t come to an end.
23 Great Signs God Is Restoring Your Marriage
Here are the most surefire signs God is restoring your marriage, and if you recognize them, you should be celebrating because they are proof that your marriage will be saved.
1. You feel loved again
After some time, some very hard times, both of you finally feel loved again. You show that love to one another every single day.
You’ve reminded each other of all the reasons you fell in love with one another in the first place and decided to join your life paths forever. This kind of emotion isn’t something that can be forgotten that easily, and you’ve proved it. Thumbs up to you and your love. I am and always will be rooting for it. ♡
2. And you’re filled with happiness, true and sincere happiness
It’s a perfectly normal feeling. You feel loved again, like you and your spouse are coming back to one another again, and after some time, you feel hope again.
The kind of hope that you’ll be able to overcome your current situation and keep your marriage from falling apart. Both of you feel beyond happy, and besides love, it’ll be the greatest motivation for you two to move on and continue walking through life together…
3. You’ve started spending more quality time together
After all those years of marriage, you should’ve understood the significance of spending quality time together. Fortunately, it’s never too late to understand this, and this is evidence of that.
Even though you’ve understood it just now, after you’ve gone through a marital crisis, the important thing is that both of you are finally aware of it. This is one of the things that will help you save your marriage.
4. Communication has improved
This is by far the best sign of marriage restoration. Trust me, this won’t only improve your marriage, but it’ll take it to a whole new level.
I hope now you understand how important good communication is. It’s really the thing that keeps you two and your marriage together. Once you lose it and aren’t willing to work on fixing it, you can consider your marriage doomed.
5. You’ve started listening to each other more
You are no longer prodigals. You’ve started talking and listening to each other more, and you feel like it’s what caused the emotional distance between you two. And you’re definitely right.
Communication and active listening are the components of a healthy marriage. Without them, partners won’t be able to maintain their connection, and they’ll only start growing apart.
6. Because of it, you’re able to understand each other better
This way, by actively listening to each other, you’re able to hear, acknowledge, and accept one another’s emotional needs. Of course, it’ll also help you fulfill them easier, too, which will make your relationship a whole lot better.
7. Trust is also rebuilt
Devotion, loyalty, and trust are some of the most important building blocks of a healthy and successful Christian marriage. If you lose or any of these bricks blocks apart, your marriage will be falling apart piece by piece too.
I’m sure you’ve realized this after the trust between you and your partner disappeared. You saw how that almost cost you losing your marriage, and rebuilding the trust between you is what will surely help you restore your marriage once and for all.
8. Your connection is stronger than ever before
You’ve opened up to one another. You’re talking more often and a lot more effectively. It’s all affecting your bond and making you two closer than ever before.
You feel like you’ve managed to reconnect again, even though you’d lost all hope that it might happen one day.
9. You started acknowledging and appreciating the little things
You aren’t pure standers anymore. You’ve started noticing and appreciating the little things you do for each other on a regular basis.
This will actually show both of you how much you really care for one another. It’ll also make you realize that you should lower your expectations and bring them to a more realistic level.
10. Your loved one has taken responsibility for their deeds
It’s clear, and you shouldn’t have any doubts about it. Your partner loves you. They want to work on fixing and saving your marriage, and they want to clearly show it to you by taking this huge step. And you should really appreciate it.
11. Both of you have matured emotionally
Maybe you entered your marriage when both of you were emotionally immature. If that is the case, then it’s no wonder you had these marital issues.
The thing is, every time you run into a marital crisis, you should first work on yourself and try to improve yourself, and then you can turn to your partner. You probably did that, both of you have matured emotionally, and it’s clearly visible in this sudden “improvement” in your marriage.
12. You encourage each other to be yourselves
You don’t want to control one another anymore. You’ve both understood that you have free will and that you’re perfectly capable of thinking and deciding for yourselves.
You want to keep your independence so neither one of you loses yourself in the marriage. However, despite that, you want to be included 100% in each other’s lives, and there is nothing more beautiful than that.
13. The atmosphere between you has changed
Thank God for that. It’s a sign from Him that your marriage is finally going in the right direction. It’s a sign God is restoring your marriage.
When the atmosphere between you becomes more comfortable and relaxed, you’ll feel closer to each other. You’ll be able to open up to one another and talk about things that are and were bothering you.
14. Even your fighting style has changed
Let’s be honest, we all fight sometimes, and it’s completely normal. However, if you can’t keep bad words and high voices out of those fights every time, sooner or later, they’ll start affecting your marriage.
I’m sure you’ve learned this the hard way. But, you need to forget about it now. You’ve finally realized that fighting over stupid things and those toxic disagreements don’t lead anywhere, and that’s the most important thing.
15. The spark came back in the bedroom
What happens when passion leaves a marriage? The love, understanding, and respect leave right after.
If the spark was totally gone from your marriage, it’s really no wonder you and your partner had those issues. However, now that it has come back, you need to work on keeping it there. Don’t ever stop flirting and dating each other, and you’ll see that you’ll never have to deal with a missing spark again.
16. Your family members are more supportive than ever
This really means the world to a struggling married couple. When they have the support of their loved ones, it’ll be so much easier for them to save their marriage.
Not only will their family members support them, but they may also offer them a piece of good marital advice that might actually help them work things out between them. After all, there is nothing someone can’t achieve or deal with without the help of those they love the most.
17. Your in-laws finally fully approve of you
Even though you’ve decided to crown your love with a marriage in the name of Jesus and the Lord, your partner’s family, your in-laws, have never fully accepted you as a part of their family. However, has that also changed all of a sudden, even though your marriage was stuck in a crisis?
Don’t think that your in-laws have finally come to their senses. It’s just God’s way of showing you that you can’t give up on your marriage now, after everything your partner and you have been through.
18. You don’t dwell on your past mistakes anymore
And you shouldn’t. If you’ve decided to move on and fix your marriage, you need to leave those kinds of things in the past.
After all, is there any point in going back to those things that almost destroyed your love? No, there isn’t. You’ll only make your problem deeper, and you’ll never be able to move on together.
19. You pray together and for one another
This is the most wonderful habit and tradition a married Christian couple can develop: enjoying a peaceful prayer for a good night or good morning.
How powerful prayer can be can seen in many Bible verses, and I chose two of the most wonderful ones and left them below for you. The salvation of your marriage truly lies in hope, faith, hard work, and, of course, prayer.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” Philippians 4:6
“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” Romans 12:12
20. You’re each other’s TOP priority again
You should never stop being one another’s priority. That’s probably one of your biggest mistakes and one that almost cost you your marriage.
Once you remove your loved one from your priority list, the love, trust, and connection between you start fading away. Keep this in mind, and don’t ever allow anything or anyone else to be more important than your significant other.
21. You can finally say that the relationship between you is healthy
Was your marriage healthy and happy, but only in the beginning? After some time, did things change, and you couldn’t call it a healthy marriage anymore?
The truth is, all marriages experience some crisis, and this was yours. As you can see, you’ve managed to get through it, fortunately, and very soon, you’ll leave it all behind. Your marriage is successful again, and it’ll be even better. You just need to give it more time.
22. You started talking about the future again
It’s like you pressed pause on those talks about the future because you weren’t sure whether you’d even be able to save your marriage.
However, and fortunately, you’re overcoming those small obstacles one by one, and you’ve opened up those talks about the future again. And you should because it’ll be good motivation for you to keep fighting for your love and marriage.
23. You’re both willing to do whatever it takes to save your marriage
Maybe you always were, but you never were this serious and upfront about it. All those years of marriage and everything you’ve been through together… You simply aren’t ready to let it all go and give up on your marriage.
You’re both extremely sincere when you say that you want to fight for your love and that you’re ready to do whatever it takes to make things work between you again. I wish you good luck and pray for you and your success.
Can God Heal A Broken Marriage?
Don’t ever forget that God is almighty. He can do absolutely anything He puts His mind to. If He wants something, He’ll do it, and He’ll manage to do it every single time.
I think this answers your question. Yes, God can heal your marriage. You only need to keep praying, keep fighting for your marriage, and let God help you through His ways.
You also need to trust God and believe in His plan. No person or creature is powerful enough to go against God’s will, and if He has decided to work on your marriage restoration, you can consider your marriage saved.
God is your savior, and this is only another way He’ll prove that to you. You’ll be reunited with your loved one, and you’ll overcome this marital crisis and probably won’t even remember it after some time, just like it never even happened.
Does God Give Second Chances In Marriage?
We all know how forgiving God is. He’ll always forgive someone who sincerely apologizes and repents for their wrongdoings, and He’ll always gladly grant them a second chance.
He particularly believes in marriage and its sacred bond. That’s why God will always give a married couple another chance to fix and restore their marriage.
He does not like those who give up and let go of their marriages just because they’ve run into a few obstacles. In fact, He’ll give people even more than one chance because He hates divorce, and it is always the last “solution” for Him.
As it’s been said in Malachi 2:13–16,“‘For I hate divorce, says the LORD the God of Israel, and covering one’s garment with violence,’ says the LORD of hosts. So take heed to yourselves and do not be faithless.”
What Does God Say About Troubled Marriage?
Sometimes, God makes us go through hard times because He wants to test our faith. He also decides to test the love between a couple by challenging the strength of their bond.
However, no challenge or obstacle is worth giving up on the one you love. And that’s exactly what God says in the Bible, and He always encourages and wants you to fight to save your troubled marriage. The next few Bible verses prove this too.
• But if the unbeliever leaves, let it be so. The brother or the sister is not bound in such circumstances; God has called us to live in peace. Corinthians 7:15
• Marriage shall be honorable in all, and the marriage bed undefiled, but fornicators and adulterers God will judge. Hebrews 13:4
• But every husband must love his wife as he loves himself, and wives should respect their husbands. Ephesians 5:33
• Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice. Ephesians 4:32
What Does The Bible Say About Fixing A Broken Marriage?
We all know the importance of Christian marriage and how sacred marriage is in God’s eyes. It’s also proved through the word of God, so let’s see a few Bible verses on fixing a broken marriage.
• Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her. Ephesians 5:25
• Let’s think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good deeds. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage each other, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near. Hebrews 10:24–25
• Has not the one God made you? You belong to him in body and spirit. And what does the one God seek? Godly offspring. So be on your guard, and do not be unfaithful to the wife of your youth. Malachi 2:15
• Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate. Mark 10:9
• Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Colossians 3:13-14
• To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord): A wife must not separate from her husband. 11 But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife. Corinthians 7:10-11
• Do not be embittered or resentful toward them [because of the responsibilities of marriage]. Colossians 3:19
• “The man who hates and divorces his wife,” says the Lord, the God of Israel, “does violence to the one he should protect,” says the Lord Almighty. So be on your guard, and do not be unfaithful. Malachi 2:16
If you’ve noticed these signs God is restoring your marriage, you should really consider yourself and your partner blessed. It’s obvious that God hasn’t given up on your marriage and that He still wants to see you united together as one.
However, that doesn’t mean you should stop fighting. Believe in God’s plan but also do take care of one another and make an effort to save and fix your marriage.
The good news is that you have God, the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ, and all the angels on your side. They’re all fighting and rooting for your love. The cursed Satan has absolutely no chance of standing between you and your love anymore, nor will he be able to separate you.
I want to finish this article with one of the most beautiful Bible verses: May grace be given to everyone who loves our Lord Jesus Christ with a love that will never die. Ephesians 6:24.
May God bless us all today and always. Amen!
