“Several weeks before the Veteran’s Day holiday it was laid on my heart to become more thankful in my life even in the midst of the battle that rages. After praying what I could do to show my deep thankfulness for my husband’s service to this country, I felt like I needed to write him a thank you note with a small gift I made. I got it all finished and didn’t know how I was going to convince him to come over and get it. I started praying. A few minutes later there is a knock at my door, and he is standing outside. My heart raced and I thought, ‘Thank You God!’  He came in to find a lost key but after digging through our stuff, it got to be too much as he teared up and he could no longer take it. He left stunned by the kindness of the gift and I saw a little softening of a very hard heart.”  (Nebraska) (posted 11/25/2013)
"Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God." Ephesians 5:1 (posted 8/21/2009)
“My husband and I had not seen each other in over a year and had to come together to handle matters regarding our child. I fasted and prayed prior to reaching out to him about the matter. He was very cooperative. We live miles apart and so the morning before my daughter and I departed from him, I prayed God would give me a nugget of encouragement and touch my husband to initiate affection toward me before we left. Just as I was about to get into the car he asked me for a hug and to let him know when we had safely made it back. To my surprise, he called and texted me several times that same evening once I was back home. God does listen and move and sometimes more quickly than we’d expect. Our God is amazing. Hallelujah! Thank You Jesus!”  (Georgia) (posted 5/8/2015)
“I just have to rejoice in the Lord today because my divorce court hearing yesterday was canceled. Now I am so thankful because my husband’s OW is pushing, pushing for him to be divorced so she can marry him. Thank You for posting my court date.”  (Michigan) (posted 12/22/2014)
"I used to write you praying for God to bring my husband home and he did four years ago, but he came home a different man. He had a motorcycle accident and was in a coma for months. I never gave up on him, through his drugs, other women and a coma. God told me to hang on and I did. Now my best friend/husband is learning life all over again and he is home and I am more grateful than you will ever know. We have a long road ahead, but we will do it together, hand in hand with God in the lead. Thank you for helping me to never give up." (California) (A PS from Pompano - You need to be ready for God to bring your spouse home at any time and in any condition, as this wife was.) (posted 7/3/2009)
"I asked God for a sign. A few minutes later I stopped at a fast food restaurant. While waiting in the drive-thru my husband pulled into the parking lot. We've never run into each other while out. He greeted me dryly and went inside. A minute later he sent a text message that I could join him inside to eat so I did. He gave me money for my meal. I'm thanking the Lord for this sign." (Michigan) (posted 9/5/2008)
“PTL!I was just learning about SPEAKING things into being and not just THINKING them so yesterday I spoke that my ex would call me before I came back to work on Monday. I haven't spoken to him in over a year. The hard part is faith. I have it in my head but I need it in my heart. I thanked God for it. My phone rang and although the conversation was short, he called! The Lord hears me! PTL! Next-restoration!”  (Maryland)  (posted 10/4/2011)
"Praise God! I kept standing for my marriage and after 6 years of separation we are now back together in our home. We serve a God who can work suddenly. Never give up." (Delaware) (posted 2/11/2011)
“God is working always, even when we don't see it. I could share so much but for now I want to praise God for answering prayers one at a time. My prodigal called to tell me the non-covenant moved out and they're divorcing. I wasn't surprised but once again in awe of how God works. He knows I love him and I'm standing for life. So I turn my eyes towards Jesus and wait on God's promises. PTL!”  (Ohio)  (posted 4/19/2012)

let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.  Hebrews 10:22  (posted 8/28/2012)
“Praise the Lord. He is such an awesome and merciful God. My suddenly is here. My husband and I have reunited. And our Lord has blessed us in so many ways. Miraculous. Please keep standing for your marriage and don’t ever give up. Please continue to pray for my marriage and I will continue to pray for all of you. God Bless all of you.”  (Arizona) (posted 2/9/2015)
"God is good during my stand. I have made many mistakes and have felt like giving up numerous times but thank God for His mercy. I have seen God move in providing for my daughter and me even though my husband isn't home yet. I am praying that God will pour out the fruit of the Spirit in both our lives so we can have the family God intended. God's Word will never return void." (Virginia) (posted 12/11/2009)

"I read a testimony about a husband who wished his wife a happy anniversary for the first time in years. I prayed my husband would remember me on my upcoming birthday. A couple of hours later, my husband called and wished me a happy Mother's Day for the first time in years. God's timing is perfect. Praise the Lord." (Arkansas)

Save us,  O Lord our God, and gather us from the nations, that we may give thanks to your holy name and glory in your praise.  Psalm 106:47  (posted 6/25/2012)

“God has restored our marriage! After many years of standing through separation, divorce, remarriage to one another and then more separations, God's amazing plan to finally sever all ties with the OW came to fruition this week. My husband recognized his circumstances as coming from God, and he has a truly broken and repentant heart. God did something that I never could have dreamed up, but it has definitely put an end to the immoral relationship and filled my beloved spouse with fear of the Lord and a desire to serve Him. A true miracle took place this week, and no one who knows us or our situation can deny it was God. THANK YOU, LORD JESUS!”  (Ohio)

"I give my God the glory for sending my husband back home. He is coming home tomorrow. Thanks for this ministry for preparing me for this miracle as I waited in anticipation for my husband to come home. I will continue to stand on God’s promises and put Him first in my life. He has done a work in me to humble me and I thank Him." (Canada)

“After praying and fasting God answered prayers. Although my prodigal isn’t home yet, he has told me he wants to return and work things out. He said since the day he left he regretted it and that in the time he has been gone his love for me has grown stronger. He is currently living with the OW and they now have a baby girl. Although this makes things a little tougher, I am trusting and believing God for the return of my husband and restoration of my marriage.”  (California)  Yes, we have babies born when spouses commit adultery, but I know with the stander’s agape unconditional love, you will love and pray for this child now and in the future as one of your own when your spouse returns home.  God can handle all your circumstances.  A baby being born with the other person is not reason to give up on your marriage!  But pray that your spouse does not believe the devil’s lies that they can’t leave the child even though they have ignored their older child/children at home.  But instead, pray that the Holy Spirit shows your spouse the way of escape, quickly.  Yes, you will have an additional bill to pay, but God will provide for all your needs according to His glorious riches! The Lord will get the victory!  –  Charlyne (posted 2/9/2015)
“I was feeling like God was being very silent and I prayed Psalm 28:1-2:To you I call, O LORD my Rock; do not turn a deaf ear to me. For if you remain silent, I will be like those who have gone down to the pit. Hear my cry for mercy as I call to you for help, as I lift up my hands toward your Most Holy Place.At the same time I was praying for my son who was going through a difficult time on his football team. I prayed every prayer of protection including praying a wall of fire. The next day I talked to a friend who had a dream that my son was surrounded by flames, but they weren't hurting him. She realized it was the Holy Spirit. I realized God answered BOTH prayers. He was protecting my son and letting me know He is hearing my prayers.”  (Montana)  (posted 9/24/2011)
"My husband has been home for many months now, praise the Lord. Satan has stolen so much from us but God is restoring. One area that the devil fought us, even before our separation, is in having no children. I have had several miscarriages and a series of sicknesses. Through your ministry I have kept on learning what it means to stand and just as I stood while separated, I am still standing for my husband. I know that I can also stand in my marriage for God to bless us with children." (Zimbabwe) (posted 7/23/2010)
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21 (posted 2/4/2011)
“PTL, God is so faithful. Within  weeks God gave me the reassurance/confirmation I needed. The first week I saw my first Covenant Transport truck, the next day I saw more trucks, the next week the OW asked me to meet with her, the following week my husband came home. He moved his stuff back in a week before Christmas, although he said he still wants a divorce, and doesn't want there to be any mixed signals why he has moved back in. I praise the Lord for bringing him home!There are many plans in a man's heart but the Lord's purpose shall prevail. Proverbs 19:21.”  (Georgia) (posted 1/6/2014)
“My suddenly is almost here! After many, many months of ‘it’s over,’ my prodigal told me this morning that he is done with the OW, and asked if I would like to go away later this year to work on our marriage! He said we have been married too long to just give up and he’s not interested in any other relationships. It has been such a hopeless couple of years and an impossible situation. This last week I had felt that ‘it’s time to move on with life,’ even though I knew the promises God had given me. I was weak…BUT GOD! He will keep His promises. I know there is a long road ahead, and many wounds to be healed, but I thank my Lord that He is working in my marriage! Don’t give up, I almost did. I now wait for my prodigal to come back to the Lord as that has been a promise from the beginning. Please pray for us as I will keep praying for you.”  (Oregon) (posted 8/11/2014)
"Frustrated with my stand, crying and asking God, 'Why would you want me to stand for a man like my husband?' I sat with tears running down my face and these thoughts came to mind; 'I was selfish and I've learned unselfishness. I didn't know how to truly love and now I do. I was impatient and I've learned to be patient.' God made it more clear with the next thought that came to my mind; 'Your husband will learn these things too.' This was God confirming yet again that I am doing His will." (Wisconsin) (posted 10/9/2009)
“PTL! I asked my in-home prodigal to join my daughter and I for Easter dinner prepared by me. As with almost all communication, she did not answer. On Sunday morning before leaving for church I told her 2:00 pm for dinner; still no word of acceptance. After church I started the meal. At 1:58 I got up to prepare the last part expecting it to be only my daughter and me. As I was standing at the stove, my beloved wife and our other daughter walked in the door. I looked at the clock on the stove....2:00. The four of us ate together as a family for the first time in nearly two years. PRAISE YOU LORD! She has given me no indication that she has any intention of trying to work on our marriage, BUT GOD! You, Oh Lord, are in control” (Florida) (posted 4/28/2014)
"My mouth will speak in praise of the LORD. Let every creature praise his holy name for ever and ever." Psalm 145:21 (posted 3/12/2010)
"Praise the Lord. My husband asked me and our daughter to spend the night with him at his apartment. I had decorated it, prayed over it, and declared God's Word over it. Thank You Lord Jesus." (Florida) (posted 5/29/2009)
“This last week was a bit tough on me. As I returned from a meeting, I sat in my car talking to the Lord that I was not interested in working. I felt this time I spent in working was distancing me from my Lord and, though I spoke little, I had thoughts deep inside on how I felt I wish I didn’t have to do this and so on. Just then I suddenly saw a sign, ‘Work is worship.’ I couldn’t stop smiling. My Lord had just spoken to me. I decided to do all my work and duties with full devotion as it was worship to my Lord. It amazed me as to how the Lord helps us and talks to us about all areas of our life. Standers hold on.... Just when the time is right He will speak to us about restoration of our marriages and bring it about in His time. Praise the Lord!”  (India)  (posted 2/12/2013)
"My husband came home for dinner last week. He also took me out to lunch on our anniversary. Praise be to our good Lord." (Massachusetts) (posted 8/30/2008)

“All the glory and praise to God for upholding the marriage covenant. My prodigal wife, whom I had not heard from in several months, is now visiting with me many hours a day to work on restoring our marriage. She said that she wants to see that things have changed before she will move back. I praise the Holy Spirit for bringing the communication and laughter back into our relationship. Never give up on standing. All things are possible through Christ in you.”  (Texas)

“Praise the Lord! My husband has been gone some months on a new job out of town with no contact with me or our son. I have been praying and fasting and seeking God’s Word, not advice from others. God kept telling me to ‘be still.’ Then out of nowhere my husband called me and said his job is bringing him home for now! He came and spent time with me and our son. He isn’t staying at our house but praise God he is closer than before! Later he called me to tell me he is going to find a new job so he can stay in town! How amazing is our God? I’m in complete awe! There is no reason my husband would have decided that without God!”  (Louisiana) (posted 8/31/2014)
“I just want to encourage every stander to never give up no matter your situation. I was having my quiet time and was reading Daniel's prayer in Daniel 2:20-23, praying that God make known to him the King's dream. Daniel's prayer is short but full of praise and glory to God. After finishing my quiet time, I went back to bed and was wondering if my prayers have been working on my wife since I hadn't heard from her. I fell asleep and had a dream in which she and I started talking and she told me, ‘I don't know what to do…about us, would it work?’  I answered, ‘I'm exhausted too,’ and we hugged tight and it felt so real. Since then my wife has been texting me. PTL! The Lord does speak to his children, standers. He has shown me in so many ways to stand in the gap for my wife and as an inspiration of faith to my son and others. This is just another sign from Him. ‘..you made known to me what we asked of you.’ Daniel 2:23. God is with us!”  (Florida) (posted 3/10/2014)
"God told me I was to begin singing in church again. I prayed for Him to bring me the perfect song. My prodigal and I were watching a DVD. A song came on, and he said I should sing it in church. God answered my prayer through my prodigal. He had no idea I was praying about singing again. I was going to surprise my prodigal by singing it Sunday. I asked the Lord to bring him to church if he was to hear the song. Praise God, my husband showed up before I sang." (Pennsylvania) (posted 3/27/2009)
“My husband I went for a meal to celebrate our 25th anniversary recently. As I was getting myself ready, I realized how I never use to make the effort to look nice for him and then as we were chatting during our meal we both realized how we had neglected our marriage by not making time for each other. This Sunday was Mother’s Day in the UK and my husband brought me a really lovely card and a present. For the last few days I keep hearing in my spirit that it’s time for me to start laughing and that the storm is over. I wait expectantly because it is all in our Heavenly Father's hands. What a mighty God we serve.”  (United Kingdom)  (posted 3/24/2012)
“Praise God, I had a wonderful answer to prayer this past week as I finally got my internship assigned after an agonizing seven months, and with the perfect team of people who hold my same work philosophies. Church people responded to my miracle with little faith, which inspires me to expect even greater things from our mighty God for my marriage! Tonight I was praying and asking God about my marriage and he showed me Daniel 10. Thank you Charlyne and RMM for praying and standing with me for the healing of my precious family. God bless you.”  (Arizona)  (posted 8/8/2012)

"Our divorce was to be finalized in a week. My husband talked to me and took our home off the market and he is moving back home this weekend. He is putting our divorce on hold for now. Praise the Lord. My prayers have been answered." (Texas)

“I felt pushed to my limits and acted out of anger. I did some deep soul searching and God showed me the error of my ways. I repented and asked forgiveness from my husband, but he was done. I've chosen to stand through the pain and heartache of having your husband in the same house but completely checked out. I keep trusting God and speaking His Word.  My husband said he notices how I've changed, but he's just not sure what he wants to do. I'm believing for a complete miracle and restoration!”  (Kentucky)  (posted 1/28/2013)
"Praise the Lord! My husband came home during revival week at our church! God received all the glory that day as I gave testimony of my returned prodigal at service! It was unexpected and wonderful! God is so amazing and faithful! God will do what He says He will do in His perfect timing! I am a firm believer and a walking example! With God all things are possible!" (Indiana) (posted 1/19/2011)
“When my wife left with our children I felt the call of God to stand in the gap for her salvation and the restoration of our marriage and family. I wanted to know how many marriages are had been restored (I like statistics, facts). The only answer the Spirit led me to believe was Bob Steinkamp's: ‘No one can give an accurate statistic because not everyone reports back when the marriage is restored.’ I've got the answer that I needed: God defies human statistics He keeps no record of wrongs!” (Maryland) (posted 9/19/2014)
“I would like to give our Lord Jesus Christ all the glory. My suddenly has happened! My prodigal husband has returned. My situation looked impossible, even family and friends had told me to move on. My husband even went on to marry and have a child. But the Lord intervened and ended that non-covenant relationship. Now I am learning to ‘zip my lips’ and taking one day at a time as I know it’s still early days. Standers, never give up. The Lord is your shield who fights all battles. If the Lord did it for me He will surely do it for you. Be encouraged. Your suddenly is on its way and coming soon to you, too. Praise the Lord.”  (India) (posted 2/23/2015)
“Saturday is my favorite day of the week to wake up and read stander's testimonies. It is a powerful thing to show thanks to God for His goodness, and it's beautiful to read about what Christ is doing in marriages. This week our church wrote and said they paid for my son's camp, I heard on my teaching assignment, I got a special CD from RMM, met new women that night at a Bible study, God spoke to me about specific healing I needed, and my son and I went on two day-vacation. Charlyne is right; you'll be refreshed with your families during the summer, wherever your spouse is. Praise God for being our provider! God's blessings to all standers! You're beautiful and God cares.”  (Arizona)  (posted 6/25/2012)
Thank You, Lord, for healing my mother. God knew exactly what to do. He gave her doctors wisdom, and she is on the mend. He provides what we need, even when we don't yet know that we'll need it.”  (North Carolina) (posted 2/26/2014)
“I have had a reunion with my husband's whole family and have become very close to my sister-in-law. God is definitely  moving on the other side of the mountain! Tonight at church a couple spoke of their restored marriage after the husband had had an affair a number of years ago and recovered from an addiction to pornography. Praise God our Pastor is defending marriage! I am witnessing to my family and friends about my stand.Nothing is impossible with God.’  Luke 1:37.”  (Australia)  (posted 4/22/2013)
"My husband left when I was pregnant. We were both Christians and served in church. I was devastated and found Rejoice Marriage Ministries, Inc. at the darkest time of my life. I learned to stand on God's promises and to believe that God does heal dead marriages. I declared scripture over my marriage and husband even when everyone else told me to move on. Suddenly my husband sent me an email asking if he can come home. Praise God that He is faithful in keeping His Word and can soften the hardest of hearts." (Philippines) (posted 6/4/2010)
"My husband called and asked if I wanted the sports car he had gotten when we separated. He is getting a family member’s larger car and he said this smaller car would help me not to use so much gas. He could have kept it, sold it, or given it away, but he chose me! God is definitely softening my husband's heart towards me." (Pennsylvania) (posted 2/13/2009)
“Once again! I went back to court for the third time. I prayed and fasted before I went to court. I asked the Lord to do the impossible…and He did! He cut the power off! Everyone had to evacuate the building. Faith in God did the impossible!”  (Tennessee) (posted 12/5/2014)
“God is good and faithful. I have seen great changes from my covenant husband. He went out of his way to ensure I had medical, optical and dental insurance after they took me off his because we’re divorced. He paid my insurance premium and took me to breakfast after he took me to get a new tire for my car. He was running late for an appointment we had and he called me and said sign in and tell them your husband is on his way. He is right. He is my husband! Till death do us part. I can only and will only see myself with my beloved husband. He has my heart now more than ever. RESIST standers! And the devil will flee. God bless RMM, standers, prodigals and families.”  (Virginia) (posted 4/14/2015)
Greetings, I receive the Charlyne Caresdaily devotionals .Today's, CommitYour Way really touched my heart. My ex-husband is really allowing the enemy to use him even to turn our teenager daughter against me. Whom she lives with and is taking care of her while he's in the far country. She's been in counseling for our family problems. The counselor called me and said, "I'm doing a fine job." My daughter told her she didn't want to come  back anymore because she can talk to her Mommie. The counselor released her on an as needed basis. I'm so thankful to God for His faithfulness! Thanks RMM for your support and prayers! God bless you!"  (Florida) (posted 11/14/2012)
"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God." Colossians 3:15-16 (posted 4/10/2009)
“The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. 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 58:11-12  (posted 7/2/2012)
