“PTL. Psalm 46:5. I discussed this scripture with God as yet another powerful promise and I am waiting on God's fulfillment on many others. I asked God if my husband could at least come and visit the children. I saw his car driving, by faith, in the driveway, although humanly it was impossible. I received a message from my husband the next day indicating that he was on his way to visit the children. I think the reality did not strike me and I was caught off guard. It then dawned on me the discussion I had with God the previous day. My husband arrived and will be staying over a few days. My daughter said to me, ‘Mommy this is a miracle.’ I said, yes and I will show you the scripture God gave me. My husband had dinner with me and the children. He gave me the full amount of money for all school operational costs. A miracle!” (South Africa) (posted 2/11/2014)
"After almost a year of separation and divorce papers being filed, my spouse has returned home. To God be the glory. Nothing is impossible with Him." (Arkansas) (posted 2/12/2010)
“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) (posted 1/20/2006)
“A couple of months ago my husband decided to leave. He was very determined to move on. He was seeing someone else and had no plans for working on our marriage. Last month he called his family and told them God had answered their prayers and he was coming back to me and our son. I have been nonstop praying. I fasted, prayed and prayed. It seemed impossible at the time but now I know that there are no impossibles for God. God is good and I will continue to pray, not only for my family but also for the OW so she meets God and stops looking and tempting my husband. I love God and trust in Him. Never give up. Even when the situation looks impossible to fix, don’t lose faith. God blesses us. In the name of Jesus Christ, thank You for restoring and giving us strength.” (Arizona) (posted 5/14/2014)
"PTL during this Holy Week my husband, who wants to leave us, spent the day with our daughter whom he had been neglecting. He took her shopping to buy baby gifts for our baby, and sent me a text that said,'love you.' We have a long road, but thanks be to God for showing me during this Holy Week all things can be resurrected."  (New York)

Joshua said to the Israelites, “Come here and listen to the words of the LORD your God.”  Joshua 3:9  (posted 1/24/2012)
“I am praising God that my husband is home! We were separated and he had a relationship with another woman, but God stepped in and began changing my husband’s heart and mind. My husband told me just before he came home that God had brought him to the story of David and Bathsheba. God told my husband that his actions were murdering our family, and although God would allow him to continue on his current path because of his free will, there would be disastrous consequences for me and our children. I have been praying Malachi 4:6 over my husband, and God honored my prayers and placed our children in the forefront of my husband’s mind. I can see the difficult road we have before us for complete healing and restoration, but God has promised me that He will restore and repay what the locusts have eaten. God is so good, no matter the circumstances. My heart is filled with thanksgiving and praise for what He has done! He will finish what He started!”  (Minnesota) (posted 9/11/2014)
"Even though he is planning a marriage with the other woman, my prodigal has been emailing me and doing me favors and helping around the house. His mother called and talked for an hour. Our daughter who had declared she did not believe in God now says she believes and is reading the Bible. God is good all the time." (Louisiana) (posted 10/11/2008)
“After some years apart and with no contact from my wife, she sent me a photo of herself, and her contact details to my mobile last week.”  (South Africa)  (posted 8/24/2012)

"I just read Tom's Devotional for Thursday, March 24, 2011. Wow, Lord, WOW! Tom is gifted just as his Dad was. Will you please tell him that I was so blessed by his devotional. I appreciate it very much. And Tom, here is a challenge for you to pray about. Have you considered writing as your Father did? Just a thought that possibly the Lord showed me for you?? Have a wonderfully blessed day!" (Ohio)

(posted 4/2/2011)
"I was struggling in my relationship with God, His promise for marriage restoration and financial breakthrough. The fear of being disobedient to my Heavenly Father gripped my heart. I kept pressing on one day at a time. God spoke to me all this time and slowly turned me back to Him. This morning I dreamed my husband put on his wedding band and came home. For nothing is impossible with God." (Wisconsin) (posted 10/23/2009)
"I finally gave up everything to God, asking Him to be my husband because I want to seek a more intimate relationship with Him. As my Husband, God is providing for me in every way. Thank You, Jesus." (Florida) (posted 4/16/2010)
“I ‘stumbled’ upon your website in a few months ago. I began standing before I found your site, but didn't realize that's what I was doing. God called me to get closer to Him, get right with Him, make changes in me and be ready.  The  day I got the ‘18 Signs That Something Is Happening’ in my e-mail, I was ready to give up! Later that day, I found a sprig of lilacs on the shelf outside of my office door. Lilacs are my favorite and my husband used to bring them to me. I resolved to take it as a sign that God was moving! God has had me on the Spiritual Journey of a lifetime! I'm expecting GREAT things from God during this journey for my marriage and my family.”   (Pennsylvania)  (posted 6/5/2013)
"I've felt God speaking to me in recent months. Finding this site confirmed what I thought already; that God would restore my marriage. I asked God for my very first sign and while perusing the praise reports on this web site, He showed me Isaiah 42:16, the scripture that He gave me during the loss of my firstborn daughter. Praise God." (Florida) (posted 8/21/2009)
"Praise God, my husband is moving out of a rented house on the other side of town and into one right behind our home. He is spending more time at home. We've been talking. He told me that his friends have been telling him to go home. The people God is using are ones I would never expect." (Texas) (posted 5/29/2009)
“It was only a year ago when my husband delivered his speech, ‘I love you, but I'm not in love with you.’ It was eight months ago when he gathered our children to tell them he was moving out. It was five months ago, he filed for divorce. However, with God ALL things are possible. I found this ministry and began praying for my prodigal and our marriage. God showed me what my part in the destruction of our marriage was. In February, my husband came home suddenly! Now, with Christ as our center, we are moving forward, and will be celebrating 18 years this summer! Thanks be to God!" (Texas)  (posted 4/28/2013)
"Suddenly is how Bob and Charlyne describe the homecoming of prodigals. After church, the wife of my youth sat us down and told us all that she is ready to get remarried. The joy that filled my heart, and continues to do so, is indescribable. After years of separation and divorce, I give God the glory. I can testify that the miracle of marriage restoration does happen when you are least expecting it. I will admit to having my rocky moments, but the Lord gave me the strength to keep standing even when I did not feel like it. Ask and you shall receive is yet another promise that the Lord, in his bountiful grace, keeps. Thanks to Bob and Charlyne for your support, but most of all thanks be to God." (United Kingdom) (posted 8/16/2007)
"After months of no contact, my wife was in a car accident and called me to help her. Over time, it almost seemed as if she was looking for excuses for me to come over and help her with something. The Lord has given me the strength I need to help her, love her and care for her without seeking anything in return. She's still not home, but the Lord has shown me how He can change things. All it took was one crazy driver." (Pennsylvania) (posted 4/10/2009)
"This week my daughter and I had to move out of our home because of a sheriff’s sale. Today while having lunch I saw a Covenant Transport truck going down the highway. I heard God tell me that He had not forgotten my covenant. Later I saw my husband with the non-covenant. Feelings of humiliation and embarrassment flooded me but then I remembered God's word to me. I smiled because it was God who had prepared me for what was to come. What a faithful God we serve." (Delaware) (posted 3/19/2010)
"Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God. They have bowed down and fallen; But we have risen and stand upright." Psalm 20:7-8 (NKJV) (posted 2/12/2010)
"The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told." Luke 2:20 (posted 12/26/2008)

"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)

(posted 5/7/2012)
"Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all to stand." Ephesians 6:13 (NKJV) (posted 5/22/2009)
“It has been many years of separation and divorce. God called me to stand and took me into the desert for an extended period of time. My desert time has been a blessing for me as God has used that time to refine me and call me to be His own. I now regularly ask God if I am ready for my wife to return and for us to rebuild our relationship and friendship. He repeatedly says to me...'Be patient. Not yet!’ My wife is in my prayers daily. Several months after God called me to stand, He told me that my wife and I would be back together someday to teach our children and our families, our friends, and the world that divorce is not the answer for marriage problems. Only Jesus Christ is the answer. To God be the glory!” (Texas)  (posted 7/20/2012)

"My husband told me he didn't love me and didn't think he had ever loved me. He left me for another person and soon was asking for a divorce. I was still reeling from these circumstances when my father was diagnosed with cancer. I began to cry out to Jesus and was led to your ministry. I read about the sightings of Covenant Transport trucks as signs with some amusement. Later though, when I was at my lowest point, I was at an intersection with a long light and I bowed my head for a few seconds and asked my Lord to please show me for certain I must continue to stand. I looked up and there making a long, slow turn in front of me was a Covenant Transport Truck. It must have come from around the corner while I prayed. I startled my daughter laughing and praising God. My husband suddenly asked me to take him back a few weeks after that. My husband now says he never stopped loving me and is committed to restoring our marriage. My father's recent tests show no sign of cancer and a rib that was involved shows signs of healing." (Louisiana)

“This is a testimony to all standers to just believe in the power of God. Three days before my court date, the devil threw everything at me to convince me that God wasn’t powerful and to stop believing. My husband was still adamant about the divorce. As they called us before the judge, I walked with the faith of a mustard seed, a vision, and the image of a Covenant Transport truck. I told God I believed in His power and will. The judge looked at our case and DENIED it. It will be delayed and I know it was the power of God. That day I learned the power of faith and I know God is working. PTL.”  (Texas) (posted 12/11/2014)
"God is softening my wife's heart! I had been communicating important information to her via text and could tell by her responses that something was troubling her. I asked if she was okay, and she responded by saying that she was grateful that I was always there for her. I told her that I was there for her because I love her. She then told me that she loves me too. My heart burst with joy and I recalled the many times I heard Charlyne's testimony about how Bob ‘suddenly’ remarried her. This change in my wife happened suddenly as well and I know that it is God at work in her heart. She may not be home yet, but, praise God, she is on her way!”  (Louisiana)  (posted 9/10/2012)
“I left my husband a few years ago and divorced him. Since then, I have been radically saved and touched by the Holy Spirit to stand for the salvation of my husband and our marriage restoration. God has moved my husband across the country with a job and six months later He took the job away from my prodigal husband, leaving him to return back to our hometown on the other side of the country. Since then the Lord has given me a word to return back to that place which I have always said I would never do because of the shame and humiliation back home. God is a God of miracles and can truly change a heart. He has brought me to a place of a healed and willing heart to return home. All this time I have been praying for my husband to return to me at the place where I ran away to for refuge. I had no idea God’s plans were for me to return home so He cannot only restore my marriage but my family!”  (Washington)  Men – don’t give up! – Charlyne (posted 8/11/2014)
"Sunday I prayed to God to talk to my prodigal and send him to church. I asked the Holy Spirit to inform the pastor to speak of marriage and divorce. The service was almost over and in came my prodigal. The pastor started speaking of how destroying a marriage is worse then destroying a church. God is great and He hears us." (California) (posted 3/20/2009)
"God has shown me much movement in the past 6 months! Tonight, in tears as Mother's Day approaches, I reached out to my husband with words of love. We discussed what unconditional love means and why I still love him. He said he doesn't understand. I just told him it's what I'm supposed to do - what I vowed to do and will continue to do. Praise the Lord - He is on his way home to God and to us!"  (Arizona) 
(posted 5/9/2013)
"I made a grave error at work and was gripped with fear of getting fired. That night, I cried out to the Lord about my work, my marriage, my finances and my life. I asked why He allowed the enemy to pressure me in all corners. I prayed to Him to speak loudly to me. I'd written Psalm 34:19 few days ago in my journal and the Lord used that to answer me; 'The righteous man may face many troubles, but the Lord rescues him from them all.' What an awesome and Mighty King we serve. Thank You Lord." (Wisconsin) (posted 8/14/2009)
"My husband returned to our relationship and wrote a song (sung by our friend Greg Lambert) as his testimony of life. Praise God, he never left our marriage. However, we did need to stand, as we had left God out of our home and tried to do things our own way (satan was winning). We have turned back to God, and He restored our marriage. Thanks to this ministry, we've learned how to zip the lip, forgive and start loving each other the way God had intended." (Tennessee) (posted 2/18/2011)
"Thanks to Rejoice Marriage Ministries leading me to my God, I have learned to stand for my marriage, to have faith, to be patient, obedient, forgiving and loving. I have also allowed God to transform me into a loving, caring, encouraging child of His. (Arkansas) (posted 9/12/2008)
“My husband and I have begun seeing each other recently. Although I wasn't expecting anything to happen for Valentine’s Day, I prayed about it. He called me the week before and invited me out to dinner. The plans ended up falling through, but I was able to cook him dinner and he even bought me chocolates. We have been separated some years and divorce papers have been signed. This is not how I pictured our restoration...but God's timing is perfect and He will complete that which He started!” (New York) (posted 2/26/2014)
"In a recent email my husband was describing activities he saw us doing together in the future. For the first time in many months he wrote that he loved me. God is showing me in many ways that He is working on my husband and I have faith that our marriage will be restored." (Wisconsin) (posted 7/24/2009)
“I have been separated from my husband for several months and started standing for my marriage a week after my husband left. I have had many days of feeling desperate and close to giving up but RMM messages always put me back on track. I have no contact with my husband who moved out of state, filed for a divorce and doesn’t wish to communicate with me. I don’t have a way for him to see how I have transformed and God is my only Savior. I am praying relentlessly for my husband to have a Damascus Road experience, for him to seek God again and give our marriage another chance. Thank you to all the fellow standers for the encouraging testimonies.”  (California) (posted 11/3/2014)
"I would like to praise the almighty God for bringing my husband home last year during Easter. My dead and impossible marriage was resurrected with Jesus Christ. Standers, please do not give up; our Lord is able to resurrect dead marriages if we believe in Him."  (Tanzania) 
(posted 4/25/2011)
"My prodigal told me I needed to move on and that he will be filing for divorce soon. He said only a miracle like parting the Red Sea could do anything. At that moment I felt total peace come over me. I choose to listen to the voice of God. He is still a God of miracles and I am waiting for mine." (Washington) (posted 6/11/2010)
“I’ve been standing for my marriage for several months. I had given up before but God brings me back. I had started praying that my husband have an experience as Saul did on Damascus Road. I pray it every day. Today I forgot to pray it and opened up Charlyne’s daily devotionals and I saw that was her topic for the day. Praise God! After I read that I drove past a truck that had on their back windshield 2 Corinthians 5:7  For we walk by faith, not by sight. I know the good Lord is helping me keep my faith and I know He will return my husband very soon.”  (Texas) (posted 10/13/2014)
“On Christmas God gave me a big blessing! First thing Christmas morning my husband texted me Merry Christmas and wished me a belated happy birthday. Later in the day he texted me again and invited me to come and see him after Christmas. I went to see him and it was a wonderful visit. My husband gave me two Christmas presents, took me to dinner and was very nice to me. He talked about some good memories that he had when he we were married and together. He admits that he’s not happy living in the far country. He hugged me and kissed me when I left and thanked me for coming to see him, then he turned around and gave me another hug before we parted. I can see his heart softening, PTL!”  (Indiana) (posted 1/12/2015)
“I just want to thank God for this website and the people who run it. It is an inspiration and it has been a long and hard road to get where I finally need to be. Due to me continuing to focus on God, His word and visiting this site, I am finally ready to let go completely and let God have this situation. Ever since then I have felt more peace than I ever felt in my life. I know God is holding me tight and will be working on me as well as on my husband. I have never had patience but God is teaching me that. I have accepted that my suddenly will be in God's time not mine and that His glory will shine through it. I am praying for all of us and want you all to know that if we truly let go and let God, we will have the peace we need.”  (Mississippi)  (posted 4/23/2012)
"My spouse and I share custody of our dogs and last week one made a mistake on my carpet which stained. I guess my spouse felt bad because he bought me a card with my favorite flower on the front and signed it from our dog with an apology and put a gift card in for my favorite department store. God is doing something in his heart." (Kentucky) (posted 7/18/2008)
“I want to praise God for His healing and protection. Our son was admitted to the hospital and was in dangerous condition, needing help to dress and walk, but GOD! Our son is home after only four days! I had such a peace because I know the Great Physician. My husband spent many hours at his bedside with me, and on his night off he stayed in our home with our other children. That was the best night of peaceful sleep I had while in the hospital. I could feel the Holy Spirit in the hospital room, and prayed my husband felt the same peace while he slept in his own home for the first time in several months. I know my God is able to do all things! My God is the healer of all things! I am so thankful for the healing that has taken place in our son and our family.” (Tennessee)  (posted 3/12/2013)
“I have been praying for restoration, revival and resurrection of my marriage. I continually pray for my wife's salvation. I asked the Lord for a sign of His will. I was in church, and all of a sudden, my wife showed up and sat with me! Praise God! I will keep praying and standing for my wife and family! May the Lord give all standers patience, endurance and strength as we wait!”  (California)  (posted 2/16/2012)
"I prepared a letter for my wife from whom I am presently separated. I wanted to apologize for my sinful ways which brought us to this point as well as lay out my intentions to stand for our marriage. I am still standing and trusting God to continue to mold me as I seek to submit to His perfect plan and timing." (Tennessee) (posted 8/7/2009)

"Once the prodigal, I have been standing for my wife. My wife called me and told me she loved me and wanted to come home. It has been a hard road at times but as Charlyne and Bob have pointed out, there is power in the spoken Word of God. Thank you so much my Lord, my Rock, my Deliverer." (Florida)

“I give glory to God for all He is doing in my life. The Lord sustains my strength and hope. Whilst going through some old paper work in the house I found a book with my picture on it. My prodigal compiled and wrote the poetry in it which was inspired by his love for me. I knelt down and said a prayer. Barely five minutes later my husband called me PTL! A week later my prodigal drove hundreds of miles to attend our son's school play and spent a few moments with us at home. PTL! The Lord is our Comforter and brings us hope and our source of joy. Rejoice in God's love! He does speak to standers. Restoration is there!”  (United Kingdom)  (posted 12/20/2011)
“In that day I will restore David’s fallen tent. I will repair its broken places, restore its ruins, and build it as it used to be.” Amos 9:11   (posted 7/20/2012)
“I want to give thanks to our Lord in the midst of a storm. I'm still struggling with my new job, but God is teaching me at least one new part everyday and I am still employed, thank You Lord! Please keep praying for me. My sweetheart came over today to visit our daughter, and I've been praying for contact from him, and he shared some personal things with us, and I sense he's being drawn to the Lord once again. I feel God is showing me spiritual things; how lovely is God's Wisdom to me. I realize that the enemy is attacking us because he sees God at work here and is trying to thwart it. God is greater!” (Ohio) (posted 11/5/2011)
"When I prayed for a sign, our Lord overwhelmed me with confirmation that He will restore my marriage. I now have peace, I don't know how He will do it, but now I know He will. Praise Him, He is so faithful." (Tennessee) (posted 8/8/2008)
