Blessed is the peacemaker for they shall see God. There is no relationship on the face of the earth , that can’t be restored??If people keep talking. Nothing can’t be overcome, by a simple I am sorry!!How to Restore a Relationship
As Christians, God has “called us to settle our relationships with each other.”(2 Cor 5:18) Here are seven biblical steps to restoring relationships:
1. Talk to God before talking to the person. Discuss the problem with God. If you will pray about the conflict first instead of gossiping to a friend, you will often discover that either God changes your heart or he changes the other person without your help. All your relationships would go smoother if you would just pray more about them.
Most conflict is rooted in unmet needs. Some of these needs can only be met by God. When you expect anyone – a friend, spouse, boss, or family member – to meet a need that only God can fulfill, you are setting yourself up for disappointment and bitterness. No one can meet all of your needs except God. Instead of looking to God, we look to others to make us happy and then get angry when they fail us. God says, “Why don’t you come to me first?”
2. Always take the initiative. It doesn’t matter whether you are the offender or the offended: God expects you to make the first move. Don’t wait for the other party. Go to them first. Restoring broken relationships is so important, Jesus commanded us to settle a grudge against someone before we come before God to make an offering. After going to the person to make things right, then only can we come back and work things out with God.”
Acting quickly also reduces the spiritual damage to you. The Bible says sin, including unresolved conflict, blocks our fellowship with God and keeps our prayers from being answered, besides making us miserable.
