"I am in love with Jesus. He is my Rock and I want Him to be glorified in everything. He changed and is continuing to change me. He has used me to minister to other people." (Florida)
The past several months have been such a struggle, spiritually, emotionally and financially as the enemy has been working overtime. But through it all God has given me strength to fight and hope that helps me overcome. The past two weeks God has given me Jeremiah 33:3, everywhere I look. Praise God for His unconditional love.”  (Florida)
“The enemy tried to trip me in my stand by allowing an attractive person of the opposite sex to say something nice to me and I thought, ‘Oh why can't my spouse be nice?’ Days later the Holy Spirit heavily convicted me of my thoughts, and I cried out to Christ and asked forgiveness for having doubts in my stand. Jesus was just showing me He can and is in the changing process including my spouse and yours, Amen. Keep standing, never give up.”  (Florida)  
“God has been faithful like always. He has done great things! Since my husband left for a second time, God has not stopped blessing us. He replaced the job He gave me last summer with the ideal job I had been praying for this spring. My daughter received national honors and recognition which poured out an abundance of financial blessing on her. My church family has been the best family I could ask for. On Father’s Day my prodigal agreed to let us have a family outing. I was so happy to see how happy and content the kids were and I made sure to zip the lips, something I’m still struggling with. I love you all and I pray for you every day. As it was said before, let’s continue to PUSH (pray until something happens) for our God is real good.”  (Louisiana) 
“Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.”  Isaiah 58:12 
"God bless you. I need to share with you and all of those men and women who are waiting for the restoration of their marriages -- TRUST GOD and WAIT. My husband and I were at the brink of divorce. I had become depressed, desperate and was losing faith -- I even became suicidal--yes, how we sometimes open doors to satan and how fast he works to try to destroy us. However, one night at work, I was browsing through the Christian sites and found your site. I read and printed out the Standers Affirmation. Despite the fact that my husband kept telling me that he no longer loved me and to please come to terms with truth and reality and let go, I then decided to go unto my God and Savior and plea for the restoration of my marriage. He was having an affair and I felt in my heart that my marriage was over. He would humiliate me and tell me all sorts of hurting things. I in turn would tell him that I loved him and that I needed him. I then decided to keep silent and let God take over. As I prayed I told the Lord to help me accept the truth. I then confronted him and told him that even though I loved him and wanted my family and marriage to be restored but that I was going to let him go being that he felt he had found happiness and love. To my surprise he bowed his head and told me that he was not going to let his family go for anyone. I told him that I forgave him and that we needed to forget the past and start a new life. He agreed.
"Praise God! My wife emailed me yesterday and asked for forgiveness and asked if I would be willing to fix our marriage. I am so blessed. God has moved in her life and replaced that heart of stone with a heart of flesh. He filled it with Love and gained yet another victory over satan. It is still a long road but God has paved the way. Thanks Rejoice Ministries. You have been a blessing through this storm." (Iowa)
“My restoration process has begun! Praise the Lord! It was so suddenly, with no indication that it was coming. It's been many months of separation, but standing feels so worth it now. It was hard, but the Lord carried me through, and now He is fulfilling His promises. My husband has agreed to go to counseling together and told me he loves me all in a few hours. It is truly a miracle! At the beginning of our separation, God gave me Isaiah 61:7. My husband also told me he was in the process of buying a house...for us! God is giving me my marriage and a new house to begin our restored marriage in. A DOUBLE PORTION. The Lord is amazing! I love You, Lord!” (Virginia)

"My spouse called me on Mother's Day. I was very touched." (Delaware)

"I am standing with faith for my marriage. My court date was in January but they postponed the date. I believe it is the work of God. After praying for my husband I received a Word from God which clearly says that God is at work for my family restoration. All the glory to God and I am waiting to come with a great restoration testimony soon." (United Arab Emirates)
"I was working overseas in ministry when my wife left me. I returned to the USA to try to reconcile. I have prayed about ministry opportunities and God has provided! I volunteer in my church's children's ministry and recently presented the Gospel. Many children responded to Christ! Next month I go on a mission trip to Africa. God has provided ministry opportunities for me while he works on my wife's heart."  (Florida) 
“After many detours my husband is back home. We were separated on and off for quite some time. I always knew in my heart there were a lot of things being kept hidden that needed to surface for healing of our marriage. One night I got down on my knees and prayed that God would reveal all of it and that anyone who might be trying to destroy our marriage would have their eyes opened and be stopped. Within days my prayer was answered. My verse for my stand has always been and will continue to be Matthew 19:6. Never lose hope. We serve a faithful and loving God who is the only One who can turn these ashes of marriage back into something beautiful. Glory be to Him always.”  (Virginia)
“Since my separation, I’ve been trying to ask everybody or browse the internet to know how I can get my husband back. I know in my heart only God can do this but stubborn as I am, I kept on looking. Then I found your website. Surprisingly, it's really all about God as I see in your testimonies so I finally decided to lift everything up to God and let Him be in charge of everything. And today, after praying and asking for a sign, I picked up my Bible. The page was flipped to Romans 13:8 and on top of this verse is the title ‘Love, For The Day Is Near.’ I know this is God talking to me. Makes me want to pray more and know more about Him because the closer I get to God the closer is my miracle! Praise to You Lord Jesus! My breakthrough is near!”  (Philippines) 
“My husband and I have been separated for some months and he cut off all communication with me. I called his phone to see if he still had me blocked and he didn't. I left him a message that I just wanted to talk. He called me back and we talked a little bit. It was good  and we didn't talk about any of the court stuff or divorce. We have been texting and emailing each other a little bit also. So I'm thankful God opened the door of communication for us.  I am still praying for him and for our marriage to be restored soon!”  (New York)  
"Thanks be to the Lord, my husband called me twice this month. Once to apologize and the other time to tell me about a restaurant. Prayer works." (New York)
"The Lord moved mightily last week. My husband came home from deployment and the whole week I could tell God was dealing with him. I am trusting God to keep working." (Florida)
“I would like to PLT! I went on a three-day fast with the assistance and encouragement of the live-in nanny. She could see I was looking down and felt we needed to do something and pray harder. She has been one woman that has encouraged me without wavering throughout this stand and I thank God for placing her in our lives. My husband left several months ago and there has been minimal communication. But since our fast, we are talking DAILY. Thank you for the softening of hearts and hearing our prayers, Lord. I will continue to pray for all prodigals to receive their Damascus Road experience.” (South Africa)
“Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. “I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” Mark 11:22-24
"God is still moving mountains! I contacted my prodigal and he responded. God is working on his heart because he said he's tired of being beat up by the mistakes he has made. Although he hasn't asked me to forgive him nor has he asked to come back home, I know the Holy Spirit is working on his heart and he will be home soon! As I typed this praise report, my husband’s favorite song is playing on the radio (Something about the Name of Jesus). What a wonderful confirmation that God is on the move! I am praising the Lord in advance!" (Texas)
“I woke up this morning with the parable of the persistent widow on my mind (Luke 18:2-8). I have read it before but this time I felt the Holy Spirit wanted me to 'study' it. What an awesome verse to be given by our Heavenly Father! I feel the Lord is saying be more like the widow; against all odds never give up fighting for what is right. Never accept defeat as the answer! My case has been presented to the most high judge; He is dealing with it in the best possible way. It says that God will bring about justice 'speedily' if we don't give up and pray persistently. I know my husband is on the way home at great speed because I have left God in charge of my case!”  (United Kingdom) 
"I received a sign from God like I had been asking for. It reaffirmed my faith that He will do this miracle for us. While the attacks on me come, I can stand firm because I saw a glimpse of God at work on my prodigal." (North Carolina)
“Thank you for all your prayers. I'm also praying for all standers and their prodigals daily. Since God brought my prodigal back, I have seen Him working miracles in our marriage. It has been the toughest time in my life, as I have had to love my husband through so much pain and repeated rejection. I have been praying for God to wall my husband in through the hedge of thorns of protection, particularly on weekends. Without fail, God has blocked his paths and canceled his plans every weekend.”  (South Africa)  
“I was having a hard time struggling with my spouse’s free will and questioning God about 'How are you going to do this? I know you can restore us, but how?' I happened to be walking across a commemorative bridge that had planks on it with 'donation' placards. Hundreds of them. The kind that have 'Family of' or 'Donated by such and such business.' After praying, I was drawn to look closely at one of the placards at my feet. It read 'With God, All things are possible.' I was stunned but praised God! To be sure, I kept reading placards...none of them had just phrases on them like this. Each time I ask, He draws me back!”  (Kansas) 

"The Lord has kept His promise. He continually showed me that my marriage would be restored. Before the Christmas holidays the Lord did just that. Now my wife and I are planning our remarriage celebration. Thank You Lord for keeping Your promise!" (Texas)

“The longer I stand the more amazed I am at God's blessings and power and how mightily He moves in my life when I let go. Due to uncertain job circumstances and plans to return to school, I prayed about selling my house. After prayer and fasting I listed the house. Only 48 hours after listing and three showings, we received two good offers. Only God could do this! What is more important is that I have a chance to start anew. My prodigal and I disagreed about the house when I willfully pushed ahead and bought it on my own. My lack of respect for his opinions and leadership and my stubborn independence created a mess that only God could fix. Amazing things happen when I submit to the Lord's leading. Thank You Papa.”  (Minnesota) 
"My husband filed for divorce about two weeks ago and prepared to move out. Thanks for him listening to a 19 year old son, on the same day, he canceled the filing and never moved out of our home. I praise God for this. He has told me the truth of his life, becoming an honest man again. God is working in him and in me every day." (Louisiana)
"I thank God for you, Bob and Charlyne. I recently found out that the divorce went through. I couldn't understand because I know what God has spoken about a the future of me and my prodigal. I sought God when I first received the initiation for divorce and had such a peace. The enemy was trying to say that I missed God, but Bob confirmed it when he wrote about the D-virus and divorce. Even if a divorce is final, what does God say? God kept reminding me when Jesus died the enemy thought he won, but he didn't because Jesus was resurrected. I have never stopped praying for my prodigal." (Virginia)

"I have been praying that, 'the heart of the father would turn to his child and the heart of the child would turn to his father.' My husband is far away this Easter, but he emailed our son to say he loves and misses him. God is speaking to my husband, moving in his heart and softening it. Praise be to God." (Washington State)

“I filed for divorce out of fear that I couldn't financially and emotionally survive without my husband. I was scared to stop the divorce and prayed for God to intervene. I didn't want to appear flaky or manipulative. After going to court over a year ago, I learned in the months following that it was not finalized. A few months ago I received the final decree dated and sealed. Last week I learned that due to some issues with his previous employer, the divorce will be null and void if his attorney and previous employer can’t get their paperwork together.”  (Georgia) 
“I just looked at my phone and I see a text from my friend saying that his sister's husband told her he is 100 percent committed to their marriage for life and that her heart has changed as well. I started crying as it was unexpected and I never told him that I have been praying for God to restore their marriage for many, many months. Although it was not my suddenly, I know that God will bring my beautiful faithful wife home soon. I praise Him for restoring their marriage and look forward to my own answer. He hears me and I honestly didn't expect to read that today.”  (Minnesota)  
“Praise God! Giving glory and honor to our Lord and Savior for He is worthy to be praised! This website has encouraged me so much that I truly believe God can save my marriage! I've let my husband know that I will be standing  and he didn’t take it well. But God came in and soothed my heart and after all the words that were spoken and the tears that were shed, I woke up still in love with my spouse and still wanting our marriage to be healed. I realize now that I don't have to talk to him; I can go to God in prayer and He will give me peace and breathe new life into my marriage, and heal mine and my husband’s heart.”  (Georgia) 
“God is so good! After being separated from my husband for a couple years, I am pleased to say that our marriage has been restored. It has not been easy, but I realize once I gave up and stopped trying to fix things myself and let God work for me, everything just fell into place. My spouse and I went from not being able to have a five minute conversation without arguing, to spending entire days just laughing. I’ve become appreciative of the trials our marriage faced, because the joy brought by the restoration is greater than every tear I’ve ever cried over my marriage. Keep faith in God. He will make your marriage better than you have ever imagined. The Lord stated that when He restores He outdoes himself. I never could have dreamed this was what He had in store for us.” (Michigan)
"My married is restored! Praise God. Thank you for your daily encouragement. With GOD all things are possible. Keep up the good work. You have been a blessing to me." (Georgia)
“I spent the day with my husband and our kids yesterday doing a corn maze and hiking. My husband and I have been divorced a little over a year now and this is the first time we’ve been together as a family all day for no major reason. Before yesterday, I’d been praying and fasting several times a week for God to move. I’m so thankful we were able to be together!”  (Georgia)
“I made a big mistake and my husband said that he couldn't forgive me. There have been a ton of bumps in the road and hurt feelings but now he is letting me come see him. I finally stopped crying and decided to let God take over and listen to Charlyne and ‘zip my lips.’I told my husband that it did not matter what he did or said, I was going to stand for our marriage no matter what. Now he says that he wants to be with me. He is still in the wilderness but I am sure that he will be home soon. God is good. He sent a Covenant Transport truck when I was driving to see my husband. PTL for His faithfulness! I am so grateful for RMM! Keep standing even when you feel like you can't anymore!” (Minnesota) 
“I want to thank RMM for court room prayers. Not long ago I submitted our date to be prayed over. Our attorneys met with the judge for a status update, who ended up throwing our case off the docket, praise God! The judge saw that our case had been on for over a year and we still had a lot of issues to work out. Later that day my husband met me for dinner with our young daughter. This was the first time since our separation a year before, that we’ve been out for a meal together. God is working!”  (Oklahoma)
"I want to praise God for my husband’s salvation. I have been praying and standing for months for him to be saved by Jesus and last week he called and said that he got saved. He is in jail and this is the change in him that I asked the Lord for. He calls me every day to say He loves and misses me. He also said he is coming home when he is released. I know God is working." (Arizona)
"I called for information regarding our court case. Our divorce will be final within months. To my amazement I feel peace and know God is with me in this season and He is in control. I know man cannot dictate God's will for my marriage." (California)
“God is moving on the other side of the mountain. I am thankful. My husband and the OW have broken up. My husband is trying to find somewhere to stay. I told him he could come home. God is closing all of the doors to the life he is trying to live. I will continue to stand and pray. Thank You Father!”  (Tennessee) 
“PTL! I was feeling down and read the devotional about waiting for God’s appointed time in the book of Habakkuk. On Sunday, our pastor taught on waiting for God’s appointed time as Sarah waited and in God’s time she conceived Isaac. This was a sign that God is just waiting for the clock to strike. Standers, let’s be strong and never give up. Let our Lord find us standing.”  (Kenya)
“My husband joined me and our children for Christmas dinner. He also bought me a nice gift and put the kids’ names on it since he knew they couldn't afford anything for me. Since Christmas he has texted me every day over normal everyday things. The OW is still in the picture at this point, but I know God is moving that mountain for me. PTL for His many blessings.”  (Illinois) 

"Labor Day weekend my husband threw me out of our house, saying he wanted a divorce. He had never treated me this way before. I found Rejoice Marriage Ministries and found hope and my way back to God. I have prayed and fasted, and now my husband is asking me on dates and we see each other a few times a week. Although my husband insists we live apart until he sorts through his issues, I am so thankful to God. I feel my husband and I are going to reconcile. Praise be to God." (Ohio)

"My husband left me and filed for divorce. The divorce will be retracted and he has now been back reunited with the family. My kids are so excited to see their prayers answered. Thank you Bob and Charlyne for giving me hope and encouragement through your devotions and radio messages. The Lord has brought my prodigal home and is beginning to heal our family and my heart from this crisis. Nothing is impossible with our God." (California)

"My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:19
“I have so much to be thankful for. The Lord has always been there for me but I have failed as a Christian. It took the end of my marriage many years ago to get my attention. Not long after that God gave me Mark 11:23-26 to give me hope. Although I have made many mistakes, I have continued to pray for my husband. Last week he texted happy birthday to me for the first time in years. I know that the Lord is touching my husband's heart. I know that I have a long way to go but I will always continue to grow in the Lord. Everyone wants me to go on with my life. I tell them I am but that I know that my marriage will be restored and what are they going to say when God does this. I do have support from those who believe as I do and my prayer partner says for me to just wait and see. I want everyone to just keep praying and have faith.”  (Florida)
“I've been standing for a couple of years and so glad to have found RMM. I cannot tell y'all what a lifeline it is. I have been praying daily and began fasting a few months back. My wife and I have begun communicating again, but she has been unable to talk about her journey to the far country. We haven't spoken for several weeks. On Monday I "suddenly" received an email from her, and, truthfully, I was filled with dread and couldn't open it until Tuesday. The email began: ‘It is time that I treated you with the honor and respect that you deserve.’ Her mom stopped by and said this was an answer to our prayers. Her entire family is standing for us! While we are not fully restored in the physical, I feel a spiritual weight has been lifted from us. PTL!” (Texas) 

"One year ago, my world came crashing down around me. I'd been a military wife and learned my husband led a secret life behind my back. His life was filled with sin. When he was home he was a devoted father, husband, and servant in the church. I was devastated and lost all hope. He never actually left the home, but emotionally he was gone. This man was stone cold towards me. I ran out of my own strength very early on, but God lifted me up and carried me through the most difficult journey of my life. My family and Christian friends told me to give up and that I was justified, but God promised me my marriage would be restored. I chose to trust in God and to this day my marriage is stronger than it has ever been and I love my husband more than I thought possible. I tried to give up almost daily, but God's Word and His promises gave me hope and increased my faith. I knew if I gave up on my husband he was a ticking time bomb and nobody else would care about his salvation and love him like I did. I see God working in his life daily and I am amazed at the man he's become." (Virginia)

“Praise God for His grace! During these many years of standing for my marriage, God has generously provided WELL for me and my children. I can't tell you enough all of the breakthroughs and suddenlies that He has blessed us with. He is our Provider. I want to pass the test of perseverance and patience, taking every negative thought captive to God's outstretched hand. He recently blessed my daughter with an awesome scholarship package for college, answering a heart's desire a year after waiting for that breakthrough and not giving up. There are so many other examples that I could provide but the bottom line is don't give up - stay the course, it's not what it looks like. Expect GOD things! He is the Game Changer! Continue to believe for your heart's desires! God Bless you RMM, standers and your families!”  (Delaware) 
"My husband is home again. After spending a month with us and leaving briefly again, he is home for good. Thank You, God and thank You, Bob and Charlyne, for all your teaching and encouragement. I knew what to expect and where to look for truth." (United Kingdom)
