“Praise God!  God is doing a great favor for me and my son. My husband is coming to visit us two to three times a week  and during special occasions. We are spending time talking on the phone every day. I am still standing that he will come home permanently SOON, that God will remove all the road blocks that hinder him, and that he'll be free from the sinful lifestyle and selfish desires. My verse tonight was Psalm 107:10-14. Dear stander, let’s press on for God is faithful." (United Arab Emirates) (posted 8/26/2013)
"I sent an email to a friend asking her to pray with me for guidance and direction dealing with a few things. I wanted the Lord’s direction as to filing for divorce. I opened yesterday’s devotional that read 'Never give up.' What an awesome God we serve." (Pennsylvania) (posted 5/22/2009)
And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 (posted 3/18/2011)
"For your Maker is your husband - the LORD Almighty is his name - the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; he is called the God of all the earth." Isaiah 54:5 (posted 3/18/2011)
“Glory to God in the highest! The Prince of Peace has given me the best Christmas gift. After my husband cancelled my immigration paperwork, I received my green card approval TODAY! Thank You Lord for your many blessings. I know I will be restored and my marriagewill be healed very soon!"  (United States) (posted 12/29/2013)
“Although my divorce did go through in the eyes of the court a few weeks ago, I know that the Lord will rebuild what the locusts came to destroy! I have had so many signs in the past few weeks that my assignment from God is to continue to stand. I was also able to share a word about standing on my local Christian radio station last night. One of my prayer partners told me that Satan would not try too hard to destroy something that was already dead. I will not quit until the devil has to! I will stand and believe forever! “  (Minnesota)  (posted 2/14/2012)
“This week has been bittersweet. Last Saturday my husband took the night off to take me to dinner and we spent the night together at his place. We immediately came under attack. The next day he wanted distance and said we both knew after a year of separation this was heading for divorce! NO I called out to Jesus. I find it hard to rejoice in these situations. By mistake I pressed too many buttons on my iPad listening to several recordings of RMM at the same time.  What a noise! The Holy Spirit said this is what goes on in my husband’s head. You trust and call on Jesus. He is an on-time God. I am still standing. It takes two to marry, two plus Satan to breakdown, but God to break through. Rejoice!”  (United Kingdom)   (posted 12/10/2013)
“About one month ago, my husband and I attended a church program on our home town. We sat next to a lady that we knew and began talking with her when all of a sudden she looks down and realized that she left her wedding and class rings in the bathroom at a large store. We did everything we could to find her rings but it was no use. When all hope seemed to be lost- I told this lady that I was going to pray for God to get her rings back. They were returned to her this week. She called me weeping and crying and thanking me for my prayers. I told her to God be the glory- it was all Him!” (Arkansas)  (posted 10/29/2011)
“I just wanted to share my cousin's testimony to encourage others for Mother's Day. She left her husband with her sons when the boys were three and five (she was the prodigal) for another man. She had TWO non-covenant marriages and then went back home when the boys were 21 and 24. Her visits were few and far between during the non-covenant times, but her husband NEVER dated during that time or took off his ring. In fact, he is my cousin...she married into the family. Because he never talked bad about her, it was easy to accept her back into the family because we didn’t know the details of anything. They have been remarried for three years now. She enjoys our family and we love her. She is truly family. I was the prodigal and divorced many months ago. It is my prayer of supplication that I will repeat my cousin's story. Be blessed.”  (Maryland) (posted 5/12/2012)
"Today my husband told me he loved me today. Praise the Lord for whom all blessings flow." (New Jersey) (A PS from Pompano - This brief testimony should be a wake-up call for each of us who have a spouse within earshot to use those three magic words much more often. It means so much to our beloved.) (posted 7/17/2009)
“The Lord heard and answered my prayers in healing our broken family and dead marriage. My faith was really strengthened. With God all things are possible. Keep on praying, God will answer all our prayers in His perfect timing.”  (United Arab Emirates) (posted 1/27/2015)
"Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes, with your right hand you save. The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your love, O Lord, endures forever--do not abandon the works of your hands." Psalm 138:7-8 (posted 10/11/2008)
“This praise report is about how God can suddenly turn around a situation. For almost a year I had been trying to get a job which was being blocked by the HR director. One Friday I received an e-mail that she was retiring and within three days I was offered the position. That was my ‘suddenly’. I could not believe how quickly everything turned around. That this could happen has helped to strengthen my faith that God will turn around my marriage situation and it could happen very quickly. All things are possible with God.”  (Jamaica)  (posted 7/30/2012)
“I have prayed to the good Lord, asking for Him to touch my husband’s heart and bring him back to me in His time. I have been using some of the scriptures you wrote in a devotional. Well, thanks to the one and only Almighty God and our Savior Jesus, my husband has said maybe we should set up a time to ‘just talk.’ I know this is the Lord moving because my husband wouldn't have wanted to speak to me normally (without wanting something). All the praise and glory to God!!”  (Florida)  (posted 9/24/2012)
"My prodigal spouse and I spent a long weekend together camping with his family. No radio, TV or telephone distractions. Praise the Lord. It is an answered prayer in working on our communication." (Georgia) (posted 12/11/2009)
“I have been truly blessed. After giving my testimony about seeing my first Covenant Transport truck, I have been blessed to see 15 more over the past month. I always see one when I’m talking to God while driving. I prayed that there were other standers on the road. There was a time when I had given up on ever seeing one and now I’ve seen 16. When God shows up He really shows out. I believe God is about to show up and show out in my marriage. Praise God.”  (Georgia)  (posted 2/14/2012)
We praise the Lord for one of our local recently restored couples who will be renewing their wedding vows this weekend at a North Carolina church. (posted 6/2/2006)
“Lately God has put many people in my path with struggling marriages. I am blessed to see God move in one of my friend's marriage and another young couple who attends my church. God really spoke to my heart and said, ‘It doesn't matter where you are in your stand or in your restoration process, you may be the only person choosing to speak life and hope into a hurting family.’ God does heal hurting marriages!”  (Illinois) (posted 8/26/2013)
“God is always faithful. After several months of non-communication and my fasting and praying through that time period, my spouse began to communicate with me around Easter. After five days of him contacting me for one reason or another, I had to make a short trip on the interstate and God gave me an overload of signs - I saw an ‘On Time Every Time’ truck which I had never seen before along with many others right in a row. The next two days I didn't hear anything from my husband so I believe this was reassurance even though I didn't ask. I had to make another short interstate trip the next day and God gave me a Quick Way, On Time Every Time, Express, United, and two Covenant Transport trucks within ten minutes of getting on the road! I asked all winter long to see Covenant Transport trucks and I only saw two even though I traveled almost every weekend. Two in one day is incredible and again I didn't even ask! I believe my suddenly is right around the corner!”  (Indiana)  (posted 4/26/2012)
“I told my husband I was standing on covenant. I knew he'd be in our home and I prayed over the pictures that the Holy Spirit would use them to speak to him. Something must've happened during last week. His mom shared with me that he said he ‘almost lost it’ while in our home. We went on a date and talked for hours. Things have definitely taken a turn in a new direction. I asked him to go to church and he did; the sermon was all about marriage. I know his heart is changing. It was nothing short of a miracle. We've got a long way to go, but at least there's hope.”  (Florida)  (posted 2/25/2012)

"My husband moved back home this past week. We have been in weekly marriage counseling. My husband made a promise to not speak of divorce again. The Lord does answer prayers." (Michigan)

(posted 6/5/2009)
“I was overjoyed to hear the conversation with the owner of the Covenant Transportation company, during the March Rejoice Pompano Bible Study. On Saturday I saw a Covenant Transport truck parked right around the corner of my house. This is very uncommon and I was shocked and started to sob and pray. Little did I know that God was preparing me for Monday when my husband asked for a divorce. I was very calm and had the opportunity to share with him about Luz and Fabian and that he will meet them one day. I told him I understand and nothing will change my love and stand for him. He gave me the prodigal talk and I started to praise the Lord. He ended the conversation with, ‘Who knows what the future holds for us.’ Since then I've been filled with peace. My husband wants a solution to stop the torment he feels, thinking divorce is the answer to stop the pain. Praise the Lord for hearing my prayers and revealing the truth about my husband’s heart condition.” (Florida) (posted 4/1/2014)
“PTL. My husband and I were set to go to court tomorrow for a divorce motion hearing. I received a phone call from my attorney that we didn’t have to be present. I promised God I would share my testimony to first praise Him and to encourage others. I am still waiting for restoration of my marriage and my husband coming back home but I believe God will bring it to pass.”  (New Jersey) (posted 12/5/2014)
“I was driving to work this morning and my eyes were full of tears as I was praying for forgiveness. On the highway was a truck standing on the shoulder with the letters, ‘PTL!’ Praise the Lord! He answered my prayers.” (New Jersey) (posted 9/19/2014)
"The judge postponed our court date. Later my husband walked us to the car, then followed me to a gas station and put air in my tires. Then we went to lunch with our granddaughter. God showed me He is working." (California) (posted 11/6/2009)
Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!  Isaiah 30:18 (posted 3/11/2012)
“My husband and I are getting along better than ever and even doing things together. Two weeks ago he spent his first night at our house this year. God had given me the scripture, 'Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!' (Luke 1:45) and I believe this is His confirmation to me that He is continuing to work for His glory. Praise Him.” (North Dakota) (posted 1/28/2005)
"Praise God, my husband has returned home. Although he is not admitting that it was God who sent him home, I know that it was the Almighty. I knew my prayers would be answered, but I didn't think it would be so quick. We have a lot of work to do and I know we can do it because I refuse to stop standing and praying." (Florida) (posted 10/11/2008)

“WOW is all I can say about my day today! My suddenly arrived. I hadn’t heard so much as a peep out of my husband, in many months. I got up this morning and had a message from him that he wanted to come pick me up so we could talk. I spent the whole day with him and he apologized to me like five million times and told me how much he's missed me! He told me that he had been so miserable and that every TV show, song, movie and video game reminded him of me! He said he hadn’t been able to sleep and that he's been waking up every day around 4 a.m., just about the time I've been falling asleep after praying! He wants to work things out, PRAISE THE LORD! The Lord is SO AWESOME! To everyone, don't give up on what you're praying and believing for. The Lord is faithful. Continue to pray for us as we start the reconciliation of our marriage as I continue to pray for all of you! The Lord receives ALL of the praises and glory!"  (Texas)

...to him who alone does great wonders, His love endures forever.  Psalm 136:4  (posted 8/24/2012)
“I am a mother who has been praying for both of my daughters' marriages for some time now. I attended my cousin's wedding, knowing that my son-in-law (whom I have not seen in years) would be at the wedding. My daughter was also at the wedding with the OM. I knew this was going to be an uncomfortable situation but I also felt God was going to do something miraculous. Just before going home, the OM went for a walk and my daughter went over and hugged her covenant husband. It was a very long hug and I noticed a few tears.”  (Canada)  (posted 8/27/2011)
"One year ago today, my husband told me he was going to the store. He did not return for Christmas. He did not return until late March of this year. In July he filed for divorce, moved out and informed me he was "in love" with someone else. Today my prodigal husband is home, the divorce was canceled and we are headed out of state to celebrate Christmas with his family. I owe all I have and all that I am to our Lord and Savior. Without finding Him, trusting Him and rededicating my life to Him I don't even want to think about where I would be right now. I share my story to give glory and praise to our Father! But also to encourage others who are standing for their marriage to never give up! My marriage was deader than dead- but God turned it around!”  (Minnesota)  (posted 12/26/2011)
“In his devotional last week Bob recommended, ‘Asking God for yet another sign that you are in His will to be standing for marriage restoration. Write down and date your question.’  So I did. I learned that my wife went on a long vacation with the OM and I was very, very discouraged. I told my kids that I was thinking of quitting my stand. I asked them if they wanted me to keep waiting for mommy and whether they thought I should. They said yes to both questions. A few days later I drove past a billboard that said, ‘Papa, don’t stop believing.’ Such a clear answer! I want to give praise and thank God that He does answer prayers, that He does speak, now one way, now another.”  (Canada) (posted 12/16/2014)
"Today was our final court day. I surrendered my husband to the cross, fought against the plans of evil and asked God for a miracle today. The judge did not sign the decree. She allowed more time. I thought I was going to be divorced today, but God intervened. I know that He is in control." (Kentucky) (posted 6/11/2010)
“Praise the Lord! I got my miracle. My spouse is coming home and the divorce dismissed! I had several years of crying out to the Lord day and night. I am so happy! I was in anguish crying out to the Lord God and heard a still small voice tell me to wait. After reading everything I could on God and marriage and studying scriptures about marriage. I told God I would wait as long as it took. Every time I experienced another obstacle I'd pray and remember what God said and my promise to Him. It looked hopeless. Finally after being forced to sign a court appearance paper I turned it completely over to God. This is when I saw the hand of God at work! Now when I look back, I see He's been working the whole time. Amazing! He is faithful. Never give up. God will do what He has promised! He is love. Learn to trust! My journey has only begun… But God! A scripture which really helped in the last month was Psalm 91:4.”  (Nebraska) (posted 9/16/2013)
“After praying for several days for God to reveal to me the reason for the delay in my marriage restoration and my husband’s return, I woke up on Sunday and read Charlyne's devotional and I felt my prayer was answered. Charlyne spoke about delays being a result of God not wanting your spouse to endure consequences to sin. I pray Charlyne will expound upon this teaching for all of the standers as we continue to seek God's wisdom and guidance during this process.”  (Georgia) (posted 2/11/2014)
“I just want to thank our great Lord for RMM, and for Charlyne's Devotionals, which have really been a blessing in my stand. My prodigal has been home for almost a year now, but I am still standing for the healing of my marriage, as I am waiting for complete restoration, God's way, God's timing! So many times I've felt so overwhelmed and wanted to give up, BUT GOD! He sends me a very encouraging devotional. You are all truly a blessing!”  (Canada) (posted 5/16/2013)
"I truly thank God for having used your ministry. Your transparency has given me so much help when the enemy tells me to give up. I love God, my wife and our children too much to not put my marriage in the hands of my Lord and Savior who can do all things and will restore and heal, not just my marriage, but, all marriages. God bless you." (Virginia) (posted 2/4/2011)
"My husband and I woke early this morning. We held hands in front of a warm fire. It's Christmas morning and our teenagers are still in bed. This scene should not be happening. We almost let satan steal our precious family. My husband came home a few years ago after filing for divorce. God has healed and restored our marriage. He taught me how to stand and pray for my marriage. He showed me how to change my bad attitudes and let Him change my husband. All that we went through has made us closer and now I stand in prayer for marriages." (Arizona) (posted 12/29/2009)
"I was struggling with my thoughts of my spouse with the other person. God brought Psalm 37:1 to me. I thanked God showing he will bring that relationship to an end." (New Jersey) (posted 1/10/2011)
"PTL! My husband called this weekend and said  'Can you come get us?' I picked up my family not five minutes away and brought them home. Bags packed, food in hand, happy faces and joy in my heart - I brought my family home that late midnight hour. God is working on the other side of the mountain. As far as I am concerned my marriage has already been restored. I know that God is faithful to complete what He started."  (Washington) (posted 5/12/2011)
“Our court date was today. God gave me the words to speak and a wise judge who is requiring my husband to take one counseling session and has rescheduled the date in two months because we did not file financial paperwork! My husband is angry now. Please pray that God will soften him! I prayed and wrote in my prayer journal that God would provide a car. Two hours later, I got a phone call from a relative who was sending me a check for a car and they had no idea I was having car problems! I told my work secretary what happened and that God was speaking to me. She told me that God was speaking to her and that my husband is coming back. She told me she and her husband were divorced for nine years and got re-married last year! Praise God!”  (Indiana) (posted 2/11/2014)
"Yesterday, after some time of being a stander for my wife, I told God, I wanted to give up the fight. I am powerless without His help, but today this is what I got: God gave Jehoshaphat this answer. 2 Chronicles 20:17 - "'You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord who is with you. Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out, for the Lord is with you.'" (Kentucky) (posted 6/13/2011)
In my distress I 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  (posted 10/23/2011)
"Praise the Lord, my husband has begun to talk to me face to face and even share laughs with me. He has helped me financially, he visits our younger son and ends up chatting to me for a while. God has restored the relationship between my husband and my older son; my daughter has commented that she would talk to him when she sees him next. We are trusting that God is working in my spouse's life and believe he will come home soon. I praise God that he brought me to Rejoice Ministries at a time when I had accepted that my marriage was over." (Australia) (posted 3/18/2011)
“Glory unto Him! God has answered our prayer, specifically my children's prayer for a new father with a new heart, new mind and new soul for the Lord and the family. My husband, who had stepped out of our family for five years, is now a new man who loves the family and God more than before. He is very patient towards me, caring towards the children and loving towards the family. All this seems impossible with man but it was possible for our God. God has shown me this verseJoel 2:25‘I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten-- the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm.’  Continue to trust the Lord and have faith like a mustard seed that God will turn our situation around for those who trust in Him.”  (Singapore) (posted 10/13/2013)

"God told me to send my prodigal a Valentine's Day card. I did and he called me for dinner. We went out and each apologized for what we were responsible for in the breakdown of our one year marriage. I will be moving back home in a few weeks because we have decided to have a courtship time to reconnect again. Thank you so much for your support." (North Carolina)

“I am a standing husband. I was the original guilty party breaking covenant with my wife. We have been living separately for a while and just recently our divorce was finalized. In the beginning we were on track to recovery. We recommitted ourselves to our marriage; I confessed my transgressions and rededicated my life to Christ. My wife suddenly changed her mind and believed the Lord’s will was for us to divorce. This has been a time of trusting the Lord. She recently said she might want to spend Christmas with me, our two young kids and my family. Thanks to my Heavenly Father, my faith for restoration remains strong. I believe just as suddenly as she wanted a divorce, she will be coming home. For now I will trust and wait for God’s perfect time.”  (California) (posted 12/22/2014)
“My husband and I are starting life anew. I was in such shock on Christmas Eve when my husband wanted to stay at our house after opening gifts with our children and actually wanted me by his side. We talked for hours. He wanted to stay home. There is much healing that will need to take place, but the joy far outweighs the sorrow. I kept clinging to the message that God is in control.” (Ohio) (posted 1/28/2005)
"Papers were signed by the judge to dismiss our divorce proceedings. The Standers Affirmation was placed in the file at my request. My husband and I are at peace. We thank Rejoice Marriage Ministries so much." (Virginia) (posted 6/11/2010)
