It has been ten days since my husband returned home suddenly. I thank God and your Ministry for helping me through such a trying time. This is definitely a joyous occasion, but I admit that I have to go not just daily but every couple of hours to the Lord for reassurance that all will be well. I'm thankful that I'm able to see how God is fighting on my behalf. (New York)

"I have peace despite chaos around me. My friend has started coming to church with me. I am getting a promotion with a raise and there has been a sign of my beloved's softening heart. I do not have adequate words to thank my Lord." (Vermont)
“Praise the Lord! After many months of prayer my husband finally agreed to start visiting our new born child. I’m still waiting on God for the restoration of our family. Thanks to the Lord and thank God for your ministry.”  (California)
“Praise God, His love never ceases to amaze me. The divorce was not finalized today. I prayed for God’s will to be done. Just when I thought my marriage was over God stepped in and prevailed again. To God I give ALL of the glory. My faith has been strengthened. God is so good to me.”  (Illinois) 
“Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.”  Jeremiah 32:17
"God is faithful when you trust Him. After years of divorce, God continues to re-affirm my stand and that reconciliation with my wife is still on His radar scope. His latest message to me came while reading in Galatians, Chapter 6; 'for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.' His message is to be patient and wait upon His perfect timing." (Texas)
"God can make anything happen and He can show you how to get a family together. He made the Holy Spirit talk to my spouse; had him call our daughter and her family, who was here from WI to visit. My spouse asked her and her family to meet him for lunch. I was staying at another daughter's and she was taking me home that day. We stopped at her MIL's to visit first. I could have already been home, but God works things His way. I received a text from the daughter who moved to WI. She wanted to see us before she left. We joined them for lunch. We were planning on buying our own food. But my spouse bought all our meals! Then we ended up sitting across from each other. I want all of you to see how God can use many people to make a mountain move. With God all things are possible. Give God all the Glory."  (Illinois)
“I have been standing for my marriage. Many people told me to just give up and divorce him. But I could not give up praying for him and fasting . Every time I felt like giving up, God would speak to me through messages, pastor’s sermons or Charlyne's encouraging words. Now my husband is moving some things back into our house, when I least expected it to happen. I just saw my firstCovenant Transport Truck. God is faithful and His timing is perfect.”  (Florida) 

“God allowed my husband to call me on Mother’s Day and he came over to see the children on Tuesday. Our little girl gave him a piece of paper and told him to write something to me. He wrote 'Happy Mother's Day' and drew happy faces on it. That made my day.” (Alabama)

"I woke up the other morning with the wind howling outside. We went to bed thinking our furnace had stopped working, but when I woke up I started praising God for a warm bed, having my husband next to me and a warm house. When I looked at the thermostat the temperature said 64 degrees. I touched the furnace and it came on. Praise God for healing my furnace." (Oregon)
"Hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit." Romans 5:5

"God brought my spouse home after an absence of several months." (Virginia)

“PTL! Yesterday, to the surprise of all, the judge told my wife and me that he cannot grant divorce since he is not convinced that we cannot reconcile. He asked us to file a fresh petition. Praying that the petition will be rejected and our Lord softens my wife’s heart. God acts when humans fail. Humanly it looks impossible. But I am trusting my Lord to break through. To God be all glory.”  (India)
“One of my prayers has been that God brings someone in my husband’s life and even work to minister to him and also for my husband to desire to come to church with me. After church I stopped by his house to wish him happy birthday. He was happy to see our daughter and I, but was down. He mentioned that he wanted to go to church with me but didn't know how to ask me. He proceeded then to tell me that one of the guys he works with told him that he looked familiar. His coworker asked him where he goes to church and my husband said he doesn't but does go with me on holidays. His coworker goes to my church! PTL!”  (Pennsylvania) 
“I never knew what is was to depend on the Lord financially as my prodigal and his father are very generous. I saw the pile of medical bills from this year. I was struggling with whether or not to bring it up to my prodigal. Instead I did as Charlyne suggested and placed them on my Bible and prayed over them. Later when my prodigal stopped by, he asked if there were any bills so he could take care of them. My prodigal also initiated a hug and fixed the leaking air conditioner. Thank You Lord.”  (California) 
"I was driving and praying for the other person, trusting that the Lord will take care of her and loosen whatever binds her to my husband. I also praised the Lord for bringing my husband home and restoring his faith, our marriage and our family. As I prayed, God placed a beautiful (Hawaiian) rainbow in the sky, reminding me of His promises and of my covenant marriage." (Hawaii)
“I have been receiving encouragement from RMM for many years and it's been such a blessing. I received a pamphlet that talked about the covenant of marriage when we were going through our divorce and I decided to stand for my marriage. I lived through five years of silence without hearing from my spouse, but God continued to encourage me to keep standing. I did ‘suddenly’ hear from my spouse and thought I had my restoration, but things don't always go the way we think. It's been three years since that suddenly, and we are now getting remarried! It's been slower than I thought, but God's timing is perfect. I am so thankful for the scriptures, prayers and encouragement. No matter how things look to us, God CAN and WILL do the impossible, if we keep believing. He is a great God!”  (Pennsylvania) 
 “For all of the standers - Never give up hope. My husband left me for another woman. We divorced even though I tried everything possible to stop it. For a year I stood and prayed. He came back a few months later only to leave for her again. The devil was working against us. I printed out one of the emails that Bob had written that explained why they sometimes go back and gave it to him. He read that and said that Bob knew exactly what he was talking about. WE ARE GETTING REMARRIED TONIGHT! Thank you for this web site and for GOD answering my prayers. NEVER GIVE UP!”  (Alabama)
“My husband and I have reconciled and he will be moving home soon. He contacted his attorney and told him he wanted the court date cancelled. He also told his attorney that we were reconciling. Praise the Lord. He is so good and faithful. God has really blessed us and answered many prayers. He is an awesome God.” (West Virginia)
"Yhwh Yahuah (Creator) is El Hanne'eman (The Faithful God) (Hebrew). I call on Him, He answers the faithful who fear Him. He answers those who put their life in His hands as surrendered living sacrifices. Yahushua ha Mashiach(Jesus)  has answered my prayers so wonderfully, I can say that when my wife repents and surrenders, I know the answer to what Elohim has joined together.”  (California) 
being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:6
“I just wanted to encourage other standers that the Lord Jesus Christ is in control of all the circumstances. Last year my wife filed for divorce and it was being fast tracked. The attorneys said it was going to be a quick and easy. Almost a year later, nothing is moving and my wife is at a standstill. It occurred to me a couple of months ago that our Lord Jesus Christ has stopped the process and to stop looking at the mail. My victory came slowly and has manifested itself already. We are cordial to each other and I don’t talk to her about the divorce. When I stopped trying to help God in the process is when He went to battle. Do not fret but rest in His peace which He has promised us. Ephesians 3:20  Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.”  (North Dakota)  

"Last Thanksgiving I had received the court date of my divorce. This Thanksgiving my in-laws invited me to spend Thanksgiving with them and my spouse with his approval. I thank God for making it possible for me to spend Thanksgiving day and the next with my spouse. I see evidence that God is softening my spouse's heart." (Ohio)

"My husband and I attended a funeral for a family member who had been married for many years. The minister chose to focus on that as he remembered her life, speaking of the responsibility couples have caring for one another as well as for helping each other get to Heaven. As he spoke, our son told me he caught his father looking over at me. God powerfully reminded me I am on the right road." (Minnesota)
"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." John 10:10
"This Christmas season, being on a budget with only my income to support my family, I did not know how I was going to be able to buy presents for my children. I received an unexpected gift from a friend and I was able to buy presents for my kids and my family. Praise God." (Florida)
“Praise God for His faithfulness! Yesterday was a day of blessings from my Heavenly Father. First, I had to print out and sign a credit card authorization form. I wasn't sure if i should sign it with just my maiden name or if I should sign with my married name because I was afraid of how my husband would react. I asked the Lord what I should do and He said to ask my husband. My husband said that it was up to me. I praised God and signed my married name. Then later, the Holy Spirit told me to clean up because my husband was going to spend the night in the other room. I obeyed and sure enough, my husband called late that night and said he was going to spend the night. This morning he said he slept great. I praise God! He is moving!!” (Georgia)
“I am always looking for encouragement from God regarding my stand for my wife. I attended a camp meeting and a missionary spoke about a woman who was the single mother of seven children. Her husband had left her. She found the Lord, and five years later, her husband returned. They began attending church together. One time, his cell phone went off in church. He answered the call to find that it was his mother whom he had not seen in more than 20 years! That’s two remarkable stories about God’s restoration between his people! That was a God-timing, I believe. Why did I hear this encouragement? God may have brought me there just to hear that message.”  (Indiana)

"The principles I've learned from the beginning of my stand are foundations for faith in my walk with God, even after my husband's return home. His time away was spiritual boot camp for me. I praise Him for the time of teaching before my husband came home. I've learned that my stand didn't end when he came home; it just grew to a new level, praise God." (Ohio)

“My husband has been home for a little while and I praise God daily that he is home. He had to work on Father's Day, but the children and I were up at 5 a.m. preparing a special breakfast for him. We were also able to give him a special card. Once he was home from work we spent time together watching movies. Although, there is much healing still to be done I can see how God is at work in all of our lives. I just want to give God all the glory for what He has done in our lives, and continues to do today. I know that God will complete what He has started. This ‘stand’ is a lifelong journey not a destination. I will continue to stand on the Word of God, covered in the blood of Jesus, led by the Holy Spirit. I call each and every one of my brothers and sisters that read this blessed! Trust in the Lord and lean not to your own understanding.”  (Tennessee)  
“My husband went into the far country and was involved with another woman. I felt lost but knew in my heart the Lord was calling me to stand. The Lord got me through. He gave me so many promises and so many people saw His miracles including me moving back home. I am truly blessed and know the Lord is still working in our hearts. Today my husband asked if we were going to do the ‘Love Dare.’ Victory is won. Praise the Lord.” (Washington)
“My spouse spent Christmas morning with me and our children. We were so happy. He opened presents and expressed how sorry he was for ruining our lives and that maybe next year would be different. The next week was a whole different story. I had become weary and lacking in faith over Christmas so when I opened the Bible to Isaiah 46:11-13, I had to chuckle at our Lord's humor, you of little faith!”
Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.  1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
"We just celebrated our fifth anniversary. I believe in my heart we were always married and have been married over 40 years, but February 10, 1995 is all to the glory of God. Thanks to Rejoice Ministries we were blessed with a beautiful wedding and shared with other standers what God can and will do."
"Thank you for your daily devotionals. It seems day by day you are writing to me. Everything said in today's devotional touched very closely to home. It has helped restore my faith in my situation and has given me a renewed desire to keep standing. You speaking of Saul and your experience with Bob moving on mirrors my current situation to a tee." (Florida)
"I have been praying and looking for a new job for almost a year and out of the blue the place I am now offered me a pay increase. I am so thankful for God's provision. The increase came in His timing, and I know so will a healed marriage." (Pennsylvania)
“I have been standing for two years. Our faithful Lord God has been speaking to my husband in the far country. I stopped trying to get my husband back and started doing everything I could to walk uprightly before God. Two days ago my husband told me he is moving back home. Hallelujah! You can't tell me God doesn't answer prayer He gets the glory for doing the impossible. I'm still standing and will keep on standing as I watch and see what God is going to do in our marriage.” (California)
"As I intensified my stand through additional fasting and prayer, the enemy upped the ante. Last week I was ready to give up. Through 'Charlyne Cares,' I received encouragement to hang on and led me to discover Pastor David Wilkerson. Today God spoke directly to me through Pastor Wilkerson's message. All the small events that have been unfolding are part of a progressive miracle. We are blessed to serve an awesome God." (Minnesota)
“My husband and I were remarried last month. He thought I was the enemy but it was just the opposite. He was tricked like the prodigal by his ‘so called friends’ and I prayed and heard from the Lord for 11 years that he would return. He divorced me and I never heard a word from him. I got many attacks from the devil and so did my children while I was standing for our marriage. God got us through them all, but it was extremely difficult. I never dated, and was faithful to the call. Finally, on the date of our first wedding, I saw him on Facebook, and he clicked me as a friend. He admitted that all the messages from the Holy Spirit, and all the scriptures were true that God gave me. He was in awe that I had prayed for him all these years. His journey was not easy either, and he suffered as well as we did. We are all so happy to be reunited as a family, and it was worth all the praying. God is Faithful and HE DOES KEEP HIS PROMISES!”  (Florida) 
"At the beginning of our separation when letting close family know our situation, they would ask questions. I refused to answer and just asked for prayer. I know that was God speaking to me and telling me to not give up and to stand for my marriage. When I get discouraged and my faith feels low, I thank God for always picking me back up. I give God all the glory." (Virginia)

"I have moved out of state to be with my husband. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family visiting us. God is good." (Virginia)

“Monday's devotional,Get Out of Your Boat!spoke directly to me this morning. It completely confirmed that I had indeed received a message from the Lord just yesterday reassuring me that His word spoken to me is true and I can trust Him. He gave me a dream in which my husband and I were together in a room where I found a closet of women's coats. There could be many interpretations of this dream, but I choose to believe what God has promised me: that our marriage is being restored and, although the non-covenant spouse is still in the picture, my husband chose to be with me. What a blessing this ministry is to me and all standers and prodigals everywhere! Just when I need a ray of hope, RMM is right there with words of encouragement and, most important, words of truth. Thank you, RMM. I am truly grateful for your support and your never-wavering commitment to speaking His message to us, clearly and consistently.” (Minnesota)
“Praise to God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He loves His children, and has used this ministry to encourage, support and draw me closer to Him during this stand. I cried out to Jesus to take away the pain and heal my heart. He heard my plea and over the course of the next months He healed me and drew me to Himself. He is my Provider, my Husband and my security during this season. He gave me Isaiah 27:1-5, and a vision of my husband in his recliner looking at me saying, ‘Thank you for not giving up.’ I can’t see the other side of the mountain, but I believe God and trust Him no matter what. He is the source of my supply and I praise Him. Thank you standers for your testimonies. I stand with you and pray with you in agreement.”  (Wisconsin)
"I want to thank Almighty God. My husband and I are separated. I am in this state with no family and no one to support me and pray with me in my stand. Today in church I went to the altar for prayer and Pastor said God told me to tell you ‘You are not alone.’ He is standing with me." (Georgia)
"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. Ezekiel 11:19

"Our divorce is gone. Thursday morning the same judge who pronounced our marriage dead years ago, signed papers to vacate the divorce. She happily announced it is as if the divorce never happened. All glory to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who gives us the victory. Thank You Lord for the grace to stand. Thank You Lord for restoring our family. Thank You Lord for the plans You have for us. Thank You Lord for creating Rejoice Marriage Ministries, providing Bob and Charlyne as Your hands, heart, and voice to care for us, love us, and mentor us as we stand for our marriages. May my husband and I be faithful and moldable in Your Hands as our marriage is restored."  (Oklahoma)

“My prodigal husband came and spent some time with me at home a few months ago and then I did not hear from him. I prayed to God and decided to be silent for a very long spell. This time around he has not removed personal effects that he brought with him. It is frustrating but I am being thankful to God and trusting Him that His promises will be delivered soon. Keep standing everyone and keep trusting God. He is not a man that he should lie. He will do what He said He would do.” (Jamaica) 

"WOW! God has done a work in both my husband and me. He was only gone for a short time and returned home suddenly. Since he moved out of state, when he headed back (he said he did not know why he came home), I was prepared for him to make other living arrangements once he arrived. God worked out my spouse's visit to a Christian counselor (he didn't know why he actually went to the session) and within 48 hours of his return, we were completely reconciled and our marriage is better than it has ever been! He now knows that God worked it all out! Thank you Rejoice Marriage Ministries! Praise God forever!” (Texas)

For all those out there -- please wait and trust God. Stop the fighting, the arguing, the accusations. Pray and let the fragrance of God's love fill your homes. I thought that I was going to begin the new year with the fear of getting divorce, but now I am entering the new year with him at my side and at home.
“I praise my mighty God that I am able to submit a testimony of my restored marriage. My husband left a note and walked out on our marriage saying he would ‘never be happy.’ He filed for divorce not even a month later. He refused to see me or talk to me. I fell to my knees begging God for answers. The first thing He told me was that He would restore my marriage, but it would be a lot longer than I thought. He then began to show me how I failed my husband as a wife and that no matter what, I was to show him unconditional love. I did this in many ways, always prompted by the Holy Spirit. I had not seen my husband or spoken to him until our mitigation. I saw no hope as my husband demanded to be seated in two different rooms. But God! A few hours in, the mediator told me my husband wanted to speak with me. That was a few weeks ago. We are now together working on our marriage with God as our foundation. If God has promised you restoration, He will do it. Trust Him.” (Florida)
