“God has moved me mightily in the last few months and I've just been re-baptized as a public statement of my commitment. I've learned to understand that God is a God of possibilities. Out of the blue, my wife asked me to breakfast. We spent four hours talking in general and about my walk with God. Praise God for the impossibles that He makes happen.”  (Kansas)  (posted 3/25/2013)
"Trust in the Lord and do good, dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness." Psalm 37:3 (posted 7/11/2008)
“I have been praying and fasting for restoration of our marriage as well as salvation for my husband and for the other person. God gave me Isaiah 46:8-13 as my rhema word. I stand firm in faith knowing that the promise will come true in His perfect time and His perfect way. I was feeling very weary. I cried out to God many times to help me stand strong, to keep my eyes on Him. That night I woke up as my husband was walking down our hallway. He sat down and told me that he left the other person sitting in a bar for no reason except he could not stop thinking about me and needed to come see me. That is God! He told me how much he loves me and wants to work on us. PTL! My husband is not home permanently yet but we have spent time together and I have faith that God is guiding his steps toward Him and home to me.”  (Florida) (posted 1/27/2015)

"My husband came home after a brief separation due to his unfaithfulness. The first two years were very tough, but I kept reading God' words and praying for my family. My husband now brags about me to many people, his relatives and friends saying "he is the luckiest man and is very happy that (my name) is his wife." He also said that my words and actions toward others show God. With God, I could do this. I am still praying for my husband to become a true man and father of God for our sons. I am also praying our sons to find Jesus is their guide in their lives. I feel so peaceful in my heart and can face anything without fear now. Thank you. I pray all the broken families will be restored for children's sake."  (California)

“I have been standing for awhile and have wanted to give up so many times but the Lord continues to give me the strength to keep going on this path. I have had no contact with my husband. Last week I experienced a suddenly. He came over to talk to me. I was able for the first time to share my heart and stand with him. The Lord has shown me the other side of my mountain. Nothing in my natural told me this would ever happen. All I've had is God’s Word and His promise to me with the support of RMM. I want to praise the Lord and say thank You Jesus for this miracle.”  (Alabama)  (posted 2/14/2012)
“I am posting this in advance because I believe in the miracles our Lord can do. Over the last couple of weeks God has been speaking to me and telling me my ‘suddenly’ is coming. After having our divorce case denied in court, I have more faith in God than ever so I started praying for my husband to come home for Christmas. As I was driving home I came upon an SUV. I wasn’t sure if it was police car or not but it looked official so I slowed down. As I drove past, I asked my daughter what type of car was it. She didn’t know but when I asked, ‘What does it say?’ she replied, ‘It says PTL.’ At that moment I couldn’t help but smile. I can see the work God is doing with my husband so I know it’s just a matter of time. I pray to God for every stander that this Christmas be one of miracles restoration and healing because God is able.” (Texas) (posted 12/29/2014)

"After years away in the far away country and numerous false starts home, the Lord has brought my husband back. My circumstances seemed so hopeless but God prevailed, even if there is no home for him to come home to because my kids and I moved back to my parents' house. We now literally have to start from scratch, yet he still opted to leave the comfortable life he had in the far country. The spiritual warfare is even more real to me now, but I choose to rest upon the Lord." (Philippines)

"My husband contacted me New Year's Eve after a month of silence to say he was calling off the divorce. He apologized for his hatefulness and even said he loved me. Thank You, God. I know that this is only the beginning of His great work for us." (Texas) (posted 1/8/2010)
"I carried my husband's mail to him this morning. He was in the back part of the house so I sat down to read his Bible while waiting for him. I opened his Bible to a place marked by church bulletins and papers. I was amazed to see the papers were at Psalms 37, one of my favorite Psalms. Long ago, when I first got up the courage to write my husband about my stand, I quoted from Psalms 37. God is so great to keep confirming that He wants me to stand. Thank You Lord." (Arkansas) (posted 1/22/2010)
“Praise God! My prodigal husband and I celebrated Christmas a few days early together. We both exchanged gifts and spent a wonderful evening together. I have learned that zipping my lips is the best advice I have ever received. God has been so good to me this last year. Even though our divorce was finalized this year, we are still married in God's eyes. God is changing my prodigal’s heart each day. I know that our suddenly is right around the corner. I give God all the glory, honor, and praise for all He is doing. I will continue to stand for all marriages forever. After all, ALLTHINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH OUR MIGHTY GOD!”  (North Dakota) (posted 12/30/2011)
"After my husband left I started going back to church. God gave me many signs that I should stand for my marriage and wait for my husband, even though he was telling me to go out with other men. Then I lost my job. Through it all I have been optimistic, knowing God is in control. My husband has seen this and told me he loves me and wants to come home. He also wants to go to church with me to find what I have found. Even though I hate what we have gone through, if this gets us both closer to God, it was worth it." (Pennsylvania) (posted 5/8/2009)
“God is so good to give us encouragement when we need it most. It was the night before our anniversary and I had not heard from my husband for several months. As I prayed and read testimonies on RMMs website, a scripture jumped off the page. No longer will they call you Deserted or name your land Desolate. But you will be called Hephzibah and your land Beulah; for the Lord will take delight in you, and your land will be married. Isaiah 62:4. Only God knew that over 25 years ago on our honeymoon, we had watched the movie ‘Beulah Land.’ I know that verse was confirmation for me that we will be remarried no matter how the circumstances appear today. I will believe my God!” (Oklahoma) (posted 9/29/2014)
“December has been a long month for me. I asked the Lord if I was really supposed to stand for my marriage. That night I dreamed I was driving in snow and the road was slippery and I had to adjust my speed to maintain control. Then there was a snow storm that took the car in a tailspin; I could not see anything and I cried out to Jesus to save me! When the car rested, it was parked safely surrounded by cars. It was clearly an act of God. I got out the car and slipped, holding on to a tree trunk to prevent from falling in a ditch. People passed me by and either would not or could not help me. There was ONE man who stopped to help me He took His time doing so but I just held on. Wait on God.”  (California)  (posted 1/10/2012)
“God is faithful and always keeps His promises! He is greater than all of our seemingly impossible circumstances. In the natural my marriage is over, BUT GOD, He makes a way when there is no way. My suddenly just happened after over a year of little to no contact, beyond impossible circumstances. In the meantime the Lord has healed me of my bitterness, anger, pain and unbelief. My husband has left the OW and I have been able to help him thanks to God blessing my finances since he's been gone. The Lord has given me visions. There is no need to worry, His timing is perfect. My suddenly did not happen how I thought it would, still I trust His plans for us. He came to church with me for Easter service and gave his heart to the Lord, Hallelujah! I am already thanking Jesus for healing my family and all hurting marriages across the world. Pray, hope and don't worry!”  (Ohio) (posted 4/28/2014)
"God is Great! I fasted all last week about my marriage. Yesterday, as I was traveling, God placed six Covenant Transport trucks along the way. I've traveled this same path may times and usually do not see even one truck! To me this was God's way of reminding me that He is working even when things don't look so great. God is so good!"  (Oklahoma) 
(posted 4/15/2011)
"My wife said she is filing for divorce. We have not talked for weeks. A few weeks ago I received a letter from you with the Stander's Affirmation. I repeated that several times a day. My wife messaged me to come over and she said she is no longer filing for divorce. We are rebuilding our marriage. Thank You, God for hearing my prayers." (Illinois) (posted 5/21/2010)

"God moved me to get my heart and my house ready. Days later, my prodigal returned home. This was the best Christmas. We renewed our marriage vows at church as a symbol of our new beginning with God as our foundation. Prodigals are coming home." (Georgia)

“My husband committed adultery. I felt as if my life had ended. When I found this ministry, I felt alive again with hope in the Lord. I started to pray and have faith in the Lord. My husband decided to stay home and work on our marriage. I don’t know what happened, but I give all Glory to God and to this Ministry. Thanks and always trust in the Lord for He will do what he has promised. He's faithful.” (New York) (posted 6/17/2005)
"We are divorced and there has been silence for some time. I asked our wonderful God to give me a glimpse of what was happening on the other side of the mountain. I received a text from my husband to tell me that he had separated from his present partner, I am trusting God for my future. It is not about me or my husband, it is about Him." (New Zealand) (posted 5/8/2009)
“I want to praise God for His faithfulness and express my thankfulness. My heart is overwhelmed. This past year, God has moved mountains. My husband has moved from hating me to dating me. The Lord allowed the case to be dismissed some months ago and there has been no talk of re-filing. The OW is out of the picture and God has told me to move to where my husband lives and works for the children to be closer to him. One week before the kids and I were going to move, my husband called to say his lease was up and he is moving his things into the house he found for the kids and me. I asked no questions, I was given no details, it matters not. One month ago, he swore he would never live with me again and that he is dating other people. But God is bringing my prodigal husband home, and I will take him, however he comes.”  (Texas) (posted 8/4/2014)
When I was 13 years old, I was saved and began a lifelong journey of seeking God's word. Like most people do, I began the fight with incredible diligence and a compassionate willingness to deny sin. Whenever the chance was available to do so, I attended bible studies, I read and memorized the Scriptures with vigor, and I focused on personal efforts of applying God's word to my daily life. I truly believe that those first few years after salvation and hiding God's word in my heart prepared me to battle against a multitude of sinful choices and the potential of death for the next 30 years of my life. Despite my falls, God's love was ever present in my heart, and it has made ALL the difference! Remember the words of Hebrews 11:6. I thank God for rewarding me with his grace!  (Missouri)

"Praise The Lord, my wife dropped the action for divorce and now is ready for me to come home. Only He can work this type of miracle. My spouse has been going to church with me and the reconciliation and restoration happened quickly. How great God is and how wonderful to let Him lead me." (New York) (posted 9/25/2009)
He who forms the mountains, creates the wind, and reveals his thoughts to man, and treads the high places of the earth— the LORD God Almighty is his name.  Amos 4:13 (posted 10/23/2011)
“God is so awesome. I stumbled on Rejoice Ministries two days after my husband announced he did not want to be married anymore and left home. I have been praying and standing for him. Three days before Christmas, after obeying the call to keep silent, I cried out to God. I recounted the whole story in my journal to God. Within minutes of starting my journal my phone rang. It was my prodigal. He wanted to come over to see me. He came by that same day and spent the three days leading up to Christmas before he left again. He has been back many times. I keep on watching and praying that the time will soon come when he repents to God, turns from his sin and returns home.”  (Jamaica)  (posted 1/28/2013)
“I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh. Then they will follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. They will be my people, and I will be their God.”  Ezekiel 11:19-20 (posted 12/30/2011)
“God is awesome! My prodigal and I are separated but I am so encouraged regardless of the attitude of my spouse and my in-laws. Since I turned everything over to God and stopped responding to text messages and phone calls, God has truly blessed me and my kids. God is in the midst and deserves all the glory. I received a text from my spouse that he is moving back home. Although he says it's due to finances, I know beyond a doubt it's God. I know God is sending him home to a new woman. I pray that God will continue to work a miracle in our life. Hasten to me, oh Lord, for I am in need. I pray that all the prodigal spouses return home to new spouse so that they may see God in us and repent. I pray that all prodigals will accept the Lord.PTL! Healing is done.”  (Alabama)  (posted 12/23/2012)
“I have been standing for many years now. At times I wanted quit, but God placed a loving conviction in my heart to stand, for my family and my husband’s soul. Friends and family, have said, ‘Let go and move on.’ I have had ministers tell me my husband ‘is just too far lost.’ I refuse to accept this. For several weeks the message of covering yourself in God's armor has repeatedly been before me. I realized it was God preparing for a battle. This week I received a letter from the Catholic Church (neither my husband nor I are Catholic) saying my husband has petitioned the Church to have our 20 year marriage annulled. Initially I was devastated. Then I realized, my husband must be going to church, and this letter was God's way of showing me. God has been preparing me to battle for my family, using nothing but the Word of God, and faith. I declare in the precious name of Jesus, Satan is not going to win this battle. Amen.”  (Oklahoma) (posted 8/26/2013)

"My prodigal husband returned home Thanksgiving Day. We married the very next day. Our children joined us to celebrate this long awaited day. God is faithful and His timing is perfect." (Florida)

“‘Trust in the Lord and do good, live in the land and feed on truth. Enjoy serving the Lord and he will give you what you want.’ Psalm 37:3-4.Thank you for Charlyne Caresencouraging us standers every day. My Lord has been so faithful to me and my children since the separation from my prodigal spouse. Even though my prodigal still lives in the far country, there is frequent contact with him now via text messages and phone calls. I totally believe that my restoration is on its way. Since finding this Website, the Lord is changing me every day and He is my refuge and strength; He is forever faithful to me and my children. Thank you to Rejoice Marriage Ministry for continuing standing for all marriages around the world, all the glory to our Heavenly Father. I will continue to stand for my marriage and believe that the Lord has great things in store for me and my family. AMEN.” (New Zealand)  (posted 1/24/2012)
“God is good! Last Friday night, God told me it was turn-around time. I thought wow! I then received confirmation from the Saturday Testimonies from a stander who experienced the same thing. Many obstacles came my way, but God showed Himself to be faithful! I had a HUGE electricity bill because I could not pay it last month. Praise God, my Pastors gave me a love offering for the FULL amount. God will take care of me, He is my provider!”  (Texas)  (posted 10/23/2011)
"I see change in my husband on the phone. His tone has some love hidden in it. I praise God He is touching my husband's heart. I also thank God that my husband is trying to repair his relationship with my siblings." (Colorado) (posted 7/18/2008)

“I praise God Almighty for He is powerful and faithful. My beloved is on his way home. God is a resurrection God who keeps His promises. He called me to stand and gave me many verses, signs and miracles. My Father started with me and then began a work in my husband. He restored the love first and then a yearning that would never go away. My husband and I still have some obstacles but I know God has it already worked out. Now I stand stronger for the next part of the journey. All the glory and honor belongs to our Savior.  Hebrews 10:23...for He who promised is faithful.”  (Ohio)

“God loves my radio! I got a sign through a song and asked for another. I got it, and another. I asked to hear a specific song my husband sang to me on our answering machine, turned on the radio and there it was. I asked for a sign of our family (the song that was playing when our son learned to walk), turned on the car radio and there it was! A fellow stander sent me a video to "stand" with me, and I logged off of my computer, cranked up my car and there it was! Burning bushes, talking donkeys, and radio! God speaks!” (Georgia)  (posted 10/29/2011)
“Today as I was driving I kept saying, ‘I am going to trust God ,’ over and over again. Then a restoration truck passed me. Thank You Jesus! But the amazing part is when I came to the stoplight, the license plate on the car in front of me read 'IN GOD WE TRUST!' AMEN!”  (Illinois)  (posted 12/20/2011)
“Praise the Lord! My husband came and spent the day with our children on Valentine’s day! I am standing for marriage restoration and prayed and wished he would hug me. HE DID! He said he was sorry for putting me through all this. I know God continues to work! AMEN!”  (Alaska) (posted 2/26/2014)
“My wife and I have been divorced now for over a year. I just recently came to this website. I've learned things I've never known before. I haven't had much contact with my wife in the last few weeks. I prayed today that I would hear from her, that she would understand the pain she caused and she'd ask forgiveness for the past. Sure enough, only a few hours later, God answered my prayer. I received a beautiful email from her. I believe God is beginning to work in her hardened heart and someday she will return home for good. I felt I had to encourage someone else today as I've been encouraged by others.”  (Alaska)   (posted 8/3/2013)
"My brothers, if one of you should wander from the truth and someone should bring him back, remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of his way will save him from death and cover over a multitude of sins." James 5:19-20 (posted 2/20/2009)
"I am a stander and me and my husband have been separated for quite a while. Just this week my husband sent a text message saying he loved me, I feared that this could and would never happen again but God made it possible. All things are possible with Jesus Christ. My desire is to pray and encourage other couples." (United Kingdom) (posted 9/12/2008)
“I give glory to my God for his faithfulness. Before I found your Ministry I was depressed and hopeless. I felt defeated. But God and your daily devotionals helped me in more ways than I ever thought possible.  I don’t know what the Lord has in store for me, but your Ministry has helped me become a better person, Christian and brought me closer to God. I have so much peace in my heart and I have really learned to trust in Jesus and to depend in the Lord's word.”  (Namibia)  (posted 4/23/2012)
"In recent weeks my prodigal has been opening up to me about events in his family. He has been coming to me to vent. I know this is our Lord God putting me in his mind when something happens. Glory to God. Today I put my arm around him and told him I would keep his family in my prayers and he returned the hug. For the first time in a long while I felt his arm around me. Thank You, Jesus." (Mississippi) (posted 4/16/2010)
“Last Friday was a challenging day for me. Later that day I attended worship band practice. I had a blessed time worshiping our Lord and Savior. On my drive home, which was very late at night, I was pouring my heart out to God. Out of nowhere at a stop light was a Covenant Transport truck. I couldn't believe my eyes. Where we live these trucks are not around. Thank You Jesus for Your reminders You are in control.”  (California)  (posted 8/13/2012)
“Hopeless is the only way I could describe my situation. My husband left, told me he loved the OW, and said he was never coming home. It was difficult to do, but I did not listen to my husband. I listened to and believed God and His Word. I blocked out the advice of friends and loved ones and only obeyed God. My husband came home and it was still a fight. I tolerated things from him that I thought I never would tolerate out of obedience to God. No matter how messed up I thought my husband was, I continued to allow God to lead, guide, and work on me. God told me to relocate with my husband. My husband was still saying he didn't think we would be together. I was so afraid, but I chose to obey God in spite of my fears. We moved and PTL so did God in such a mighty way! My husband is loving, affectionate, and apologetic for the role he played in our trial. I have grown so much spiritually and will forever stand for my marriage and yours! God is able! Pray and have faith! Victory is yours!” (Louisiana) (posted 2/26/2014)
“PTL for this wonderful website. I have been so encouraged by these testimonies. The Lord has been working behind the scenes all these years and has softened my husband’s heart towards me and our family. I am praying daily for total healing over our lives and marriage as well as for all standers across every nations for His glory!”  (Singapore) (posted 2/9/2015)
"I saw my prodigal last week for the first time in a year after a good friend of ours died suddenly of a heart attack. At the viewing, I told him that I loved him and would always be there for him. The next day at the funeral, we stood together and sat together at the dinner. When he left he said that it was good to see me. Thank You Jesus, I know You are working." (Maryland) (posted 10/24/2008)
“My husband texted me to ask about his son, something he never does. I prayed that he would remember my birthday. I didn’t receive a happy birthday text or call but what I received was much more. He texted me asking for forgiveness for everything that he had done to me in the past; that he now sees all the pain and suffering I went through and he was truly sorry PTL! I am meeting him so he can see our son. Please keep me in your prayers. I’ve seen God work miracles and I will not stop fighting for my marriage. “Therefore what God has joined together, man must not separate.” Mark 10:9. I encourage you all to keep praying and don’t lose hope!”  (Texas) (posted 2/9/2015)

"On Valentine's Day I received a call from my sister-in-law. She was in the area and wanted to stop by. I had not seen her in years. My prodigal spouse was with her. He lives in another state. I had previously told him that I am standing forever for our covenant marriage. When my sister-in-law left the room, my prodigal pulled me close and we hugged. God is working on the other side of the mountain. Thank You, Lord for a beautiful Valentine's Day." (California)

“God has been good! In the last couple weeks I have seen mediation get canceled for a third time after posting it on the Court Room Page! Hopefully the next time it will get canceled for good! Also my husband went on a marriage retreat with me and committed to pray about the divorce. I have been standing for some time to stop this divorce, and I can truly see God's hand working! Thank you Rejoice Ministries!! Your ministry has been strong in helping me to keep standing!” (Florida) (posted 3/11/2012)
“In a no-fault divorce state, there is nothing one can do to stop divorce... except to fast, pray, worship and trust our great big God who has ways and means we know not! Today after declining again my request to attend a crisis marriage workshop, my beloved said she was ready to walk out of the courthouse divorced to get on with her life. As we walked down the long, dark hall to check in with the clerk, I kept whispering under my breath, "Just say the word and my servant will be healed"(Matthew 8:8). When we checked in with the clerk moments before walking into the courtroom for the judge to grant the divorce petition, the clerk discovered that we had been assigned to the wrong division and would need to reschedule with another division, three months out. We were both stunned, me with delight, her with disbelief. My beloved then agreed to attend the workshop. I am confident that God is going to continue His work unto perfection and that we will see the day of Jesus Christ together!”  (Colorado) (posted 11/25/2013)

"My husband has been home since May. Although we sometimes struggle with issues, I give it to God. I give him all the praise. My husband realizes how much he was deceived. I am just so happy that my family is together again." (Florida)

“There are times when I have felt very discouraged in this stand but God has remained faithful. There are so many things I do not understand and cause me pain but the Lord says believes in Me. The communication is almost nil. I had felt very sad and asked God for a little sign to show me that He is working. Today my husband sent me a short email with some positive news. Praise the Lord! Jeremiah 15:19-21 (RVR1960) Therefore thus saith the LORD, If thou return, I will restore you, and stand before me: and if thou take forth the precious from the vile, thou shalt be as my mouth. Let them return to you, and you must not turn to them. And I will put this people a fortified wall of bronze, and I will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you to save you and deliver you, says the Lord.”  (Mexico) (posted 4/1/2014)
