10 Songs To Strengthen Your Marriage

Jun 03, 2015

June, July and August are typically popular months to get married because of the warm weather. Wedding bliss that’s full of celebration and good wishes. A wedding day symbolizes the union of two people that vow to love one another and stay committed for life. A happy wedding does not guarantee a happy marriage or even an easy one. Life happens, challenges come, minds change and commitments are tested. You may know that marriage will bring seasons of ups and downs, but living it is different than reading about what another couple is going through. God ordained marriage and wants it to be a blessing, so how do you strengthen your relationship with your spouse during trying times? Many Christian artists have written songs that breath in hope and restoration. Regardless of how long you have been married or what season you are in, God can always make your marriage stronger. You can listen to all these songs on WOW’s Love Songs playlist on Spotify.

Here are the top 10 songs to strengthen your marriage:

10. “When The Crazy Kicks In” by Francesca Battistelli

Family life can seem crazy with everyone in your family pulled in different directions and feeling overwhelmed. “When The Crazy Kicks In” is about inviting God into the moments before the day starts, the kids wake up, the husband starts getting ready for work, lunches have to be made and the mountains of other tasks that are part of daily family life. God can breathe welcome and happy moments amidst the mundane.

Favorite Lyrics

Oh, come meet me in this moment
Before it all gets going
And these plates start to spin
And the crazy kicks in
A circus of distractions
Is just about to happen
I'll be ready when
The crazy kicks in

9. “Family” by TobyMac

TobyMac opens up about the struggles he and his wife Amanda have had through their marriage and how they forgot the reason why family was so important. “Family” came out of the struggles and talks about feelings of distance and simply surviving and why you can still continue fighting for your family.

Favorite Lyrics

I still believe…
I still believe…

That we're not too far apart?
Two worlds among the stars
Don’t take a piece of my heart please don’t leave
It’s not too late to say: “Father show us the way
To fight for what we got
Cause You believe in family, in family”

8. “When We Love” by Love & The Outcome

Being married is an amazing opportunity to show Christ’s love, support and encouragement regardless of the mistakes you or your spouse have made. Will your love be perfect? No because only God is perfect, but we are made perfect because of Christ. Choosing love is deciding to show the evidence of God in your marriage.

Favorite Lyrics

When we love, when we love, when we love someone
We’re the evidence, the evidence of You
When we love like You love, we can see You move
You’re alive in us when we love someone
(When we love someone, when we love someone)

7. “Together” by Steven Curtis Chapman

“Together” is a testament to the journey that all marriage relationships go through. The line “We had no way of knowing when we started way back there and then how the road would twist and turn and ben, we just knew we belonged together” speaks a lot of truth about what many couples face. It’s impossible to know exactly what God has in store, but hold onto the truth that God brought you together for a reason. Steven Curtis Chapman said, “”Together” is really just a celebration of God’s faithfulness and real honesty just saying, “I know that it’s only by God’s grace, but I’m so thankful that we can stand here together after all these years, and all that we’ve walked through.”

Favorite Lyrics

We’ve climbed up mountains higher than
Were ever in our hopes and plans
We’ve held onto each other’s hands
Watched miracles unfold together
And we’ve crawled on our hands and knees
Through valleys cold and dark and deep
Sometimes not even sure if we could make it out alive together

And if it wasn’t for God’s mercy and His grace
There’s no way we would be standing in this place
But because He has been faithful
Every step along the way
Here we are together, together

6. “First” by Lauren Daigle

The first step in strengthening your marriage is giving your heart to Christ or recommitting to Him. This opens the door for Him to start working to rebuild your relationship in ways you may never have imagined were possible.

Favorite Lyrics

Before I speak a word
Let me hear Your voice
And in the midst of pain
Let me feel Your joy
Ooh, I wanna know You
I wanna find You
In every season
In every moment
Before I speak a word
I will bring my heart
And seek You

5. “Without You” by for KING & COUNTRY

Have you dealt with a life-threatening illness or watched your spouse battle a disease? It can be a trying time filled with uncertainty and wondering if life will ever get back to normal. “Without You” was sung by Luke Smallbone and his wife Courtney when he was dealing with a life-threatening digestive disorder.

Favorite Lyrics

I heard a voice from the other side
Singing "hold fast, love last"
As winter turns into summertime
Singing "hold fast, love last"
Heard another voice from the other side
Singing "hold fast, love last"
As winter turns into summertime
Singing "hold fast"

So let's dance a little
Laugh a little
And hope a little more
Yes let's dance a little
Laugh a little
And hope a little more
Cause I don't want to live without you
No, I don't want to live without you
Without you

4. “Flawless” by MercyMe

Everyone is flawed, but Christ covers our flaws. What if you chose to live out the truth of being flawless in Christ? Not letting past mistakes dictate the future? This is possible in Christ! Embrace this and give love your spouse unconditionally, just as Christ does.

Favorite Lyrics

No matter the bumps 
No matter the bruises 
No matter the scars 
Still the truth is 
The cross has made 
The cross has made you flawless 
No matter the hurt 
Or how deep the wound is 
No matter the pain 
Still the truth is 
The cross has made 
The cross has made you flawless 

Could it possibly be 
That we simply can’t believe 
That this unconditional 
Kind of love would be enough 
To take a filthy wretch like this 
And wrap him up in righteousness 
But that’s exactly what He did 

3. “Restored” by Matthew West

Matthew West wrote this song about a man named Joe who drifted away from God and his marriage fell apart. He had an affair and was in the process of leaving his wife when God intervened and began restoring his marriage.

Favorite Lyrics

So hold on to me, I promise you we’ll make it through this 
Stronger than we’ve ever been before 
Let’s be the proof that love can be restored 
Now we could choose the easy way 
Like people do these days 
Go and find another meant to be 
But I, I don’t want somebody new 
This heart belongs to you 

2. “Lead Me” by Sanctus Real

“Lead Me” is about a man who decides to take hold of his responsibility of being the husband and father that God is calling him to be. It’s amazing how you can feel all alone and put certain responsibilities, like work, above truly being present in your most important relationships. God can and will lead you back to putting your family first.

Favorite Lyrics

"Lead me with strong hands
Stand up when I can't
Don't leave me hungry for love
Chasing dreams, but what about us?

Show me you're willing to fight
That I'm still the love of your life
I know we call this our home
But I still feel alone"

1. Broken Together – Casting Crowns

“Broken Together” focuses on a couple being transparent about how they are each broken. No spouse is perfect, but God can use a husband and wife to bring redemption to the broken areas.

Favorite Lyrics

Maybe you and I were never meant to be complete

Could we just be broken together

If you can bring your shattered dreams and I’ll bring mine

Could healing be spoken and save us

The only way we’ll last forever is broken together

Conclusion

You feel hurt, broken and hopeless. Your marriage is slipping away and all is lost. Does this describe where you are now? God has been in the business of redeeming and strengthening marriages since the beginning of time! He’s waiting for you to fall on your knees and surrender your fears and all control to Him.

Article by Elise Cleary

I am a Christian writer and editor that lives in northern Michigan and thoroughly enjoy music, movies, TV shows, books and other entertainment with a Christian focus. My favorite song is "Oceans" by Hillsong United because it reminds me that has big plans for me and everyone else who puts their trust in Him. There are many movies that have impacted my life, but a few include God's Not Dead, The Shunning and Letters to God. When I'm not writing I enjoy watching movies and laughing with my busy toddler and husband.
