The Restoration of a Marriage through Gods Grace



I want to introduce an amazing contributor by the name of Cynthia Gutierrez (insta: cynthiagutierrezz). This is her story of how God restored her marriage even when it seemed impossible. 

What is marriage? A promise, commitment, an agreement made between two people. 

I believe marriage teaches us how to be more like Jesus giving you the ability to practice the fruits of the spirit daily! 
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23)

My husband and I got married very young, 19 to be exact. Neither of us had a relationship with Jesus, we knew of GOD but didn't know Him. Our marriage was full of trial and error, mostly errors! 

In our first year of marriage, we made choices that would change our lives forever. Sin crept and in the most deceiving ways. Satan will never knock on your door dressed in his red gown and show you his horns, instead, he creeps into your thoughts, and feeds you lies. He preys on you when your weak as the bible states in John 10:10, "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full". 

I believe it was my ego, selfishness and ignorance that made me believe submitting to my husband would rob me of my womanly independence. I was seduced by the lies of romantic movies, childhood fairy tales and unrealistic expectations of my marriage and what it could do for me. Doubt of my self worth made me begin to daydream of what my life could be like in other relationships. In my ignorance I believed the grass was greener on the other side. I had dug myself in a hole, a hole so big, it felt like the Grand Canyon. I thought that in my own strength I could climb out and end my sin at any time, but it was a never ending hill in the scorching heat. I felt helpless, guilty and full of shame.

I cried out for help from GOD. 

I asked my husband to leave because restoration seemed impossible to me, but what might have seemed impossible to me was not impossible to God (Matthew 19:26). 

God orchestrated my healing so perfectly. We randomly picked out a marriage therapist, who ended up being Christian, my sister invited us to her Christian church Crossroads where we both committed our lives to The Lord. We developed great friendships that encouraged us in our healing. It was at this time when Gods grace restored our love, respect and marriage. 

My husband taught me unconditional love, helped me to forgive myself, which guilt no longer became a burden I had to carry. Instead of guilt, Christ's love began to fill me up from the inside out.  I began to submit to my husband and he began submitting our marriage to The Lord.  

We thank GOD for the restoration He has done in our marriage, our marriage and relationship with each other has surpassed any expectations that I had.  Our marriage has a life verse that we share with each other and want to share with you today: 

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. (1 John 4:18)

My life, my marriage, my mess, it all belongs to Jesus, He has restored me! I will never be the same. If you don't personally know Jesus, cry out to Him! Invite Him into your life. If you need Him like I need him pray this prayer. 

Lord God, I am weak. I need you in my life. I accept Jesus as Lord and savior! I want to live the life you created me to live. Restore me, heal me and make me whole in your sons Jesus beautiful name I pray! Amen!

If you prayed this please let someone know. Contact your church, pastor, friend or comment here on this blog so we pray for you!

  2. That's a great question! I would have prayed for his heart to change. However, I had decided I was going to go to therapy with or without him because I had a lot of issues I needed to work thru. I realize what a blessing this was that my husband was open to it!
