Many of you reading this post may be in the middle of a rocky season in your marriage and wondering if your marriage can be saved. Your spouse isn't showing any signs or interest in saving the marriage and their issue (financial irresponsibility, lack of interest in intimacy, pornography, alcohol, adultery, etc...) appears to be at the point of no return. Can one person save the marriage?
My answer is ....Yes! - one person can save the marriage!
With a strong commitment to the marriage and unwavering faith in God, your marriage can be saved - without a doubt. I'm not saying it will be an easy process at all. As a matter of fact, while trying to win your spouse's love back or renew an interest in the marriage, there will be many tears, feelings of bitterness, rejection, frustration, anger, and you may even feel like you're wasting your time. While enduring these difficult emotions, I still believe the process is much easier than divorce.
I remember when hubby and I talked about the ugly word divorce. Our marriage seemed hopeless - beyond repair. As a Believer, I had to ask myself if I really believed in God's promises or was I going to take the easy way out and walk out of the marriage.
In the upcoming week, I will share how one person can save the marriage. Keep the hope! Keep the faith! It's not over until God says it's over!
Is this a guarantee? Of course not. You can't change another person's mind, but changing yourself and some of your actions and thoughts can definitely change your marriage. What is there to lose?
