“For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.” Habakkuk 2:3 

“Our mediation is scheduled for next week and I received a questionnaire that has to be completed prior to going. After finishing it, I felt uneasy and concerned about the things that would have to be discussed. I'm trying to keep my lips zipped at all times, and don't want to say the wrong things during the meeting. This will be very tricky, so as I have done so many times since my stand began, I asked the Lord to encourage me from His Word. I flipped right to Jeremiah 1:17-19 and it was EXACTLY what I needed to hear! Praise God that He is with us through ALL of this!”  (Florida) 
"This week I had a bill to pay and then I would have very little money left. I had given to God my tithe and knew that he wouldn't let me down. I cried out to God and then next day I received an amount of money that was over double my tithe. God is amazing and he never lets us down." (United Kingdom)
"God told me to be still and He would fight for me. It truly is darkest before the dawn. Monday I was so depressed I didn't go to work. God told me to expect my husband home, and to believe it was already done, and not to let my words and doubt stop my miracle. Well, I held on to God's promise and after months of separation, my husband called and wanted to see me. By the next evening all his things were moved back in the house. I'm writing this as I lay next to my husband. God will do it, just believe and be patient, everything I prayed and confessed has manifested." (Pennsylvania)
“PTL! Yes everyone sing a song of praise to our Adonai. I submitted a prayer request regarding my job situation. My hours would change and I have no one to care for my daughter with a disability. Two days before my hours/job change God showed up and granted me another job that will not affect my hours. I prayed and asked God for His divine intervention and for Him to grant me favor before those in authority over me and He did it. Queen Esther had favor before the King and, yes, God showed up in His timing and granted me favor. Hallelujah! Yes, praise the Lord! PTL for His mighty works. Praise His unequaled greatness. Let everything alive give praises to the Lord. (Psalm 150) May the blessings of the Lord continue to pour out on this ministry and all standers.”  (Ohio) 
“God is awesome. He is so faithful to His children. Whatever He says He does. He is my provider. I am in the process of relocating with my daughter back to America. I bought my ticket a month ago and my husband promised to buy our daughter’s ticket. He told me that he doesn’t have the money yet so I should borrow money from my family and purchase it. I called everyone I know and they couldn't help me. I cried to the Lord and He answered my prayers. I got more then I needed to buy her ticket and have some money to carry on alone. The Lord is true to His word. He will never leave us nor forsake us. My prayer now is for God to work in my husband and myself while we are living in different countries. I know the Lord will do it. Praise the Lord with me standers, for He is good and His promises always comes to pass. I love You Lord. Luke 1:37.” (Ghana)
"I sent Rejoice a prayer request and subscribed to Charlyne Cares. You replied with an email stating that forgiveness was the first step. I entered an agreement to stand for our marriages with a friend of mine at work who is newly divorced. We met daily to pray, share, and encourage each other. My prodigal returned home last Thursday after five months of separation. Our God is truly an awesome God! The Lord showed me that a large part of the problem in my marriage was me. I was able to see how harmful my unforgiveness had been on my marriage.I also prayed that God would allow me to see my husband as he sees him. I thank God for your ministry. You have been a source of encouragement, hope, and an education in faith! My personal relationship with the Lord is richer as a result of your teaching and sharing. I continue to stand for my family and others around the world. I thank God for you and your ministry and for being the children of God that you are. I am unable to express my heartfelt gratitude in this email. I look forward to meeting you and worshiping with you in Nashville in November. I thank God and I thank you." (Tennessee)
"Praise the Lord my husband has been home for several months after months of separation. My husband moved away from me and our children. The Lord used this time to work in the both of us. Three days before my husband came back the Lord gave me Joshua 1:11: 'Three days from now you will cross the Jordan here to go in and take possession of the land the LORD your God is giving you for your own.' My husband called me and asked me to book him a ticket to come home. He is now a man of God." (Canada)
“Before marrying my husband many years ago, the popular thing to do was to make a list of the things you desired in a spouse, then pray that God would send that person to you. The other day I remembered my list, which I hadn't seen or even thought of in many years and asked the Lord if He could somehow make it surface. Later I was cleaning out a bin that contained children's school papers and other paperwork. In the bin was a grocery bag full of greeting cards we'd received for our wedding and my list was in the bag, too! God loves to answer our prayers and then some!”  (Florida) 
"My prodigal who lives out of state bought me a plane ticket and I was able to go to where he lives and spend a few days with him. It was so much fun. I know the Lord is working in this situation and I am going to keep praying for his salvation and our home to be brought back together." (Ohio)
"I received a message from my spouse telling me to stop sending correspondence about our daughter. He blames me for the lack of communication between them and wants nothing more to do with us. I cried out to God because of the hurt. In the beginning of my stand I dreamed about remarrying in Hawaii. While cleaning out old emails last night I found two emails from trips to Hawaii. I immediately felt peace. When all seemed so hopeless, God reassured me that He had not forgotten His promise to restore twice as much as what was lost. I'm so thankful to my Heavenly Father for His faithfulness." (Delaware)
"I have been standing for a couple of years. At a very weary point, I met a couple who had been separated and divorced for a few years. The Christian wife prayed and waited. The husband returned and they were remarried. They each told me they were more in love and happier this time and told me not to give up. I knew this was God encouraging me. I shared Rejoice Ministries with them and they were so grateful to see all the restored marriages just like their own." (Wisconsin)

"My husband and I are entering our ninth month of restoration. Three years ago he began an affair. Thus began my schooling from the Lord of how and why to stand for our marriage. At one point we were within hours of being divorced. All the while the Lord kept encouraging me that this was only the shadow of death not the real death of our marriage. At times the grief was almost unbearable, but the Lord faithfully walked me through each hard day and always provided everything me and our three children needed. Three years and two false starts for home later, I can say the Lord has healed, strengthened, and set our 19 year marriage on a strong foundation. He used Rejoice Marriage Ministries so powerfully to help us. Thank you  forever." (Arizona)

Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?”  John 11:40 

"I prayed for my husband to recognize Mother's Day. I wanted to know that God was talking to him on the other side of this mountain. The day before Mother's Day my husband texted our daughter to tell her he transferred money to my bank account. He asked her to take charge of that money and speak with her siblings about doing something nice for me on Mother's Day. His promise is real." (South Carolina)

“But you would be fed with the finest of wheat; with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.”  Psalm 81:16 
“Although my wife and I are still separated the Holy Ghost guided me to the following. God hates divorce, therefore it is not His will. 1 John 5:14 says God will answer our prayers if something is asked according to His will. I know therefore that God will restore my marriage. We are not yet divorced. Please don’t stop fighting for your marriage. It is God’s will.”  (South Africa)
“My husband and I were apart for several years and Jesus met me in my utter devastation and brokenness in the most beautiful way. He led me to a church and to a friend who introduced me to this ministry. During my stand, my husband and I only communicated by email. It was gut-wrenching and Iwas tempted at times to change my email address. As the new year approached, I sensed a change and thought it might be time for me to let go of my stand and move on, but my husband contacted me. We spent a day together and he held me and told me he could breathe again. We continued seeing each other and a few months later bought a house and were remarried on our original anniversary date. He is a different man who says things he never said. The last year has been filled with precious moments and some ugly ones too. I take those to the Lord and it's not long after that those issues are resolved, although it can be a scary process. The Lord is building our house and making it what He always intended.”  (Alabama)

 

"I am seeing God's hand more and more every day. My returned prodigal has had to quit work because of illness. Only God knows how we are making it on just my salary. Every time the money is needed, it comes right on time from somewhere. God even worked out a legal matter from while my prodigal was in the far country. My spouse asked me to pray for this situation. This was the first time in many years he asked me to pray for something specific for him. I prayed God would go before him into the courtroom and work it out. God did, and only a small fine was required, the exact amount given to me as an extra bonus at work the day before. I even got a raise today. God never ceases to amaze me." (Georgia)

 

“God is so good. I prayed for God to show me if my spouse still cares. He sent me gifts with the children and said he did not want to fight any more. He also went to our house for first time in months!  He spent time with the children and sat on his old chair. He told the kids he will come back to help them with stuff around the house. My God is a God of hope! I love Him so much. We are not there yet, but my God showed me He is in control. Keep standing, keep the faith. Nothing is impossible for God!”  (South Africa)
"This past week was tremendous. My husband sent me text messages and also asked me to send him family pictures taken a few weeks earlier. I had asked God for a sign in scripture twenty minutes prior to this and then I received this message." (Ohio)
"Praise God for answer to prayer. Today on my way to work I saw my husband in many months, spoke with him and shared a kiss with him. We had a pleasant conversation and at the end I was able to say he is always welcome to come home! To God be all the glory for this wonderful blessing."  (United Kingdom)
“I have stood for many years, not giving up, but fully trusting God in all things. I have just learned that my prodigal’s relationship with the OW is over. Yesterday driving after praying, I saw a Suddenly Express truck. I know that I am walking in obedience to God's Word. Thank You Jesus; You keep reminding me that You do all things well. Still trusting and standing."  (Bahamas) 

“I was about to give up. My husband and I have been separated for months with little contact. We got together to sign tax returns. He told me how much I had changed and said that he wanted my counselor's number so he could be happy too. I told him the Lord has changed me. He also said he wanted to go to church on Easter Sunday with me and said that he has told everyone that he believes our marriage will work out. I am so in shock. Praise God. Every time I've seen my husband I've fasted and prayed all day the day before. The Lord keeps His promises.” (California)

"God is faithful. I am expecting our after-restoration baby. Our marriage is better than before. Trust Him and He will answer your prayers." (South Africa)
“PTL! I give God all the glory right now. I've just seen my firstCovenant Transport truck today after over two months of standing. I was listening to the radio about standing firm and then glanced over and saw it going the other way. I know God will honor my marriage for His glory. PTL! I'm not giving up, and God does give you what you need when you need it. I was worried that I wasn't doing it right. But God! Don't give up; I haven't. Even though it's been hard, I wouldn't trade it for anything to walk closer with the Lord. Amen.” (Kentucky)

"On Mother's Day I was upset because I did not receive anything or hear from my prodigal husband. I cried out to God that night and the next day my husband called to wish me a belated Happy Mother's Day. Thank You, Jesus for hearing my cry." (Virginia)

"After a year of my husband not replying even to email, he emailed me to just say how he wishes I would be home this Easter so that we could spend time together. I believe it is the beginning of a greater restoration and manifestation of the Lord's hand in our marriage." (Zimbabwe)

“What I have said, that will I bring about; what I have planned, that will I do.”  Isaiah 46:11b 
"God has put everything in order in His perfect time. I am so thankful for the victories I have experienced in my stand. In this year I have seen God answer so many of my prayers. God has opened lines of communication with my husband; we speak daily and go on dates. God has restored my relationship with my in-laws and my husband's relationship with my family. God has healed my heart to forgive the OW and love the non-covenant child he had with her. My student loan debt was lowered. I paid it and I'm opening my business. I thank God in advance for my husband's return home for I know it's near!”  (Florida)
“I have always been skeptical about Covenant Transport truck testimonies. But deep down I always wondered how I would react if I saw one. So for almost a year I would just glance at truck names while driving. Last month I came across Psalm 86:17, and I felt God speaking to me. So I asked for a sign. The next week, for the first time ever I saw a Covenant Transport truck. I asked, ‘Lord, is this You talking?’ Another truck drove by me that had the name ‘Alfa & Omega.’ So the Lord has spoken!”  (California) 
God has been good. He has looked beyond my faults and has seen my needs. I was a stander. My husband and I have been separated for some years and towards the end I allowed the devil to capture me also. We were both in other relationships. I gave up…but God! I have a praying father-in-law and mother. My husband came home last week with all his stuff. He is still in the other relationship but I know God is working and I ask that you continue to pray for us. That we both fully surrender our lives and our marriage to God's will. God deserves all our praises.”  (Jamaica)
"On my way to pick up my daughter I asked the Lord for a sign that He is working in this stand. Then on the radio came the song 'While I'm Waiting.' I will continue to praise Him." (Indiana)
“My in-home prodigal went out of town without telling me or our children. I continued to pray and fast. Our youngest son got sick. I sent my husband a text on his status but got no response for two days. I cried out to the Lord. My husband texted me suddenly a few days later stating that he appreciated me taking care of the kids and that he was sorry. He’d sent that text to me two days prior but it didn’t go through, held up by the enemy in an attempt to discourage me. Standers, all is well, keep praying. God loves us. It’s already done!” (South Carolina)
"The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry." Psalm 34:15
“After having stood for many years, more than I thought possible going into this, I believe a breakthrough is on the horizon. My husband called our daughter last week to tell her that his non-covenant filed for divorce after over 11 years of marriage. He has also taken up horseback riding, a very important hobby of mine. He lives in another state and has for quite a few years and thus we have had little to no communication. The end of last year I sent him a text and invited him to come visit and ride the trails, go kayaking, etc. but all I got was an unanswered text. Lately I believe that my suddenly is around the corner. God has set my face as flint and I have never been able to get away from this calling. My concern at this point is that God receive all the glory, honor and praise due HIM when restoration takes place. I am praying that pride will not be able to have a place in my life for having succeeded in this stand. Praising HIM until he returns."(Georgia)
"Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God." Psalm 42:11
“I was a prodigal. My husband stood for 265 days before he gave up. God changed my heart and I became the stander. I got weary one day. I put it on my phone calendar, I was going to give up after 265 days if we were not restored. Two days before day 265,during a television pastor’s message about Seven Fold Blessings, feeling down, I prayed, ‘God give me back my husband seven times better than he was.’ Seconds later the pastor said, ‘Some wives have lost their husbands and God will give them back seven times better than they were.’ And if that wasn’t confirmation enough, on day 265, my phone alarmed me and I openedCharlyne Cares. The devotional was titled,Seven Fold Restoration,’ telling me my enemy attacks will end and my marriage will be restored seven times better. God speaks, sometimes we just don’t listen! I hurt, I’m weary, but I know God has my back and I just need to keep believing, praying and fasting. Thank You God and RMM for keeping me going when I want to give up. My suddenly will come!” (Oregon)  
“For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.” Habakkuk 2:3 
“Today I saw my husband, after many months of not seeing him, and it was good. We talked, and he said he has been thinking how to get back with me, but it looks impossible, and that she wants a divorce. But I also said that no woman would love him the way I did, and I apologized for everything. We cried together, held hands, and hugged. We could talk in peace. I spoke of the Word, that God is Almighty, and can do the impossible. GLORY TO GOD! NEVER give up and STOP LISTENING TO THE WORLD.”  (Mexico) 

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

“My suddenly happened! I received a call from my hubby asking if I could have company. We began to talk and I looked up and he had his wedding ring on. I almost burst out in tears. I was so surprised and shocked! One day lead to another and Sunday we went to praise the Lord. It was awesome. Later he said he didn’t want to go back! GOD HEARS..GOD KNOWS..GOD CARES! We were separated for many months. We were separated before for a while and he came back and stayed for some months. It was a false start but this time is a NEW START for us because GOD makes all things NEW. God can and will restore your marriage. Just believe, pray, fast, and be a doer of His Word. People came against me but I stood alone with God. He rewarded and delivered His promise. I will continue to trust God and COUNT IT ALL JOY.”  (Missouri) 

"My husband has returned home six months ago after six years away.  He said that he saw the writing on the wall--just when I was about to give up. He is now going to church with us. It just amazes me that God freed my husband from what held him captive all these years practically overnight. I would have given up had it not been for your encouraging and sometimes eye opening messages." (Florida)

"We were living overseas when I discovered my husband's affair. The Lord has given me grace, mercy and love to walk alongside him. Then, he told me he was filing for divorce. I've been so sad at our holiday celebrations, wondering if they'd be our last as a family. Suddenly, everything has changed. My husband's been kind, engaging, and fun again. The kids noticed it first. He's hugged me and thanked me for Christmas shopping, told me he loves me, and held my hand. Tonight, he wore his wedding band! Our kids and I are thrilled. God's promises are faithful and true." (Joshua 23:14) (Indiana)
“God is faithful even when I’m not. After exhausting years and hours of fasting and prayer, giving up and picking up again, I finally decided to give up on the man I have been praying for. He suddenly called and says he really needs Jesus. I was able to text him a prayer of salvation and asked him to read it out where he was. I trust God to bring us to our expected name. God had given me John 15:13 this morning. Praise the Lord.”  (South Africa) 
"God just keeps on confirming through the same scriptures given to me and through prayer that He is going to restore. We continue to see more people praying for families, prodigals and marriages in our local church. We stand in awe of God and wait expectantly." (United Kingdom)
“God's goodness and faithfulness I cannot fathom, describe or even explain. Words fails me. Apart from giving my husband a heart of flesh and transforming him into the husband I’d prayed for, He's recently blessed me with a job that pays twice as much as I used to get paid in my old job. Every day I walk in the supernatural and I’m daily surrounded by God's favor. What an amazing journey this is. My suddenly is around the corner! But oh my, the way God is bringing about my suddenly is way bigger and better than I’d ever imagined. I love you my Jesus!”  (Maryland)
“These last few weeks have been particularly difficult and I cried out to the Lord for a sign (which I rarely do). I specifically asked that it would be a text from my husband indicating that he still had love for me in his heart. The very next day a text arrived from him simply saying ‘Love you.’ I was so shocked I just cried. I hadn’t heard from him at all in weeks. God loves to answer our prayer simply because He loves us. Also the latest stander devotional really touched my heart as her story could have been me too! Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers is a must read for standers. I often refer skeptics of standing to the Book of Hosea in he Bible. Blessings to you all. Keep standing it is the RIGHT path to take. The Kings heart is in the hand of the Lord, and like the rivers of the water, He turns his heart where He wishes. Proverbs 21:1”  (Australia) 
In my distressI called to the Lord;I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears.  Psalm 18:6 
"My husband came home last weekend to visit our infant son after many months and we have taken that first step towards reconciliation. He will be home in a few weeks and with God as the foundation, we will rebuild what Satan tried to steal." (Texas)
