"I was invited back home after a long separation. My spouse and children need to heal. I know God is working. I only need to keep my eyes on Him." (Ohio)

"We have been separated for many months. There have been times throughout that we would see each other and then he would pull away. I am so glad that I've read through 'Charlyne Cares,' knowing this is part of the process in our prodigal’s way home. This weekend, we are getting together for dinner. We have been communicating recently. I just know that God is in the process of restoring our marriage and cannot wait to submit my testimony of when He does!" (Texas)
"He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free, the LORD gives sight to the blind, the LORD lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves the righteous." Psalm 146:7-8

 "My husband had an affair. For months I fought in my own strength and rules, eventually landing in the hospital. My husband asked for a separation. The situation appeared hopeless. It went from bad to worse. But the Lord has restored our marriage, gave us a fresh start, renewed love and renewed marriage vows. I thank the Lord for the grace He gave me to not give up. My faith, the size of a mustard seed, was enough for Him to move mountains. All Glory to our Mighty Heavenly Father." (South Africa)

“After experiencing other relationships which did not flourish, finally, God lead me to stand for my covenant marriage for good. Some months ago, I found RMM and I was so thankful that I was not alone in my stance. After many years of divorce from my covenant husband who is remarried to OW and has children, my stand seems impossible but my faith tells me God will restore my marriage. To God be the glory.”  (Philippines)
“I just wanted to share that my husband texted me about four in the morning and wished me a happy birthday. He also stated that he hoped I had a wonderful day. Funny, the text came in not long after I had finished praying from three to four in the morning. I try to make it a habit to do warfare prayers at night when the battle is the hottest. I texted him back and said thank you for your thoughtfulness. I know that I want him home and wished he was home with me, but I thank God for the little blessing. I can see that God is softening his hardened heart.”  (New York)  
“It is finally raining in California. Praise God! As I was crying and driving in the heavy rain this morning, and dreading another trip to the courthouse, I saw a big truck pass by with the great bold words, “Trust in the Lord!’ I know God was definitely speaking to me. He was with me in the rain today, and He has been with me this entire time through the storm. I continue to pray God will stop this divorce and my husband will leave the other person and come home. I pray one day that I too will be able to share my restored marriage testimony when God brings my husband home. With God, all things are possible!”  (California)
“Barring a miracle, the judge will sign our divorce today. I was able to take the high road and defend myself and our children from a Christian position, with love and compassion. I know our Lord Jesus Christ will carry me and our children through whatever happens today. I can't give up on her. Jesus didn't give up on me when I was lost. It is not well in other areas...but it is well with my soul.”  (Arizona) 
"I was able to pick my husband up from the airport last night. He has been with us for Christmas each year since the beginning of my stand, but this year an airline strike and bad weather in Europe threatened that. I told him we prayed as a family and the next day a judge blocked the strike until January. I am thankful for others praying this month that spouses make it home where they belong." (Illinois)
"I asked God to help me stand and forgive. The other day my husband told me that he still loves me and that he wants to try to make our marriage work." (Ohio)
"He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, 'He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.'" Psalm 91:1-2

"I prayed and asked God for my husband to remember and call me on Mother's Day and for him to give me a gift or at least a card. Praise God. I got a call and a card. Thank You Lord for hearing and answering my prayers." (Michigan)

“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 
“I was called to stand a few years ago. In these last few years I have seen the Lord constantly at work at my spouse's heart, especially in this past year. We are divorced in the eyes of the court, and my spousal support is due to run out soon. I am not able to work outside the home because of our childrens' needs, and the spousal support is how I pay the house payment and a lot of our bills. This week out of the blue, he said that he was going to petition the court and extend the spousal support because he doesn't want us to have to move. This is the second time this year that he has been moved to help us in a big way. Several months ago he asked the court to raise the child support amount. The judge was very surprised, and told us she doesn’t remember that ever happening in her court before.”  (Michigan)

"My mom went to be with Jesus a few weeks ago. It seemed so hard having her gone and my husband also. I cried out to God and asked Him to help me with loneliness. I opened the Bible and got the Prodigal Son. God will stand true to His Word and return my husband to me." (Rhode Island)
“My prodigal asked me for a loan until payday because he is so behind. I cheerfully obliged as I felt the Lord leading me to do so. We are both fasting, although he does not know I am fasting for him, while he is fasting to hear from the Lord. This evening I prayed (before he got here to drop off our kids) that God would place a desire in his heart to stay for a little bit. He ended up staying for two hours talking with me! We were talking about the Lord and even read/discussed a Bible passage together! I felt like I had my best friend back. Thank You God. It is these times that keep me pressing past the enemy's lies and standing firm in the faith. God is Healer, Deliverer, and He is Faithful. I'm believing for my prodigal to ‘come to his senses’ along with all of your prodigal spouses. Keep the faith!” (Florida) 
“I've been separated from my husband for many months but God has sustained me and has provided for me. My husband, who did not want anything from me, suddenly felt concern for his family. The situation has now changed and we are together on the weekends. He knows that the Lord has transformed me; he knows that God abhors separation. The restoration of my marriage has begun! There is still a ways to go but the promise that my Father gave me is being fulfilled. My marriage was in ruins and God is rebuilding. Praise the Great I Am.”  (Colombia) 
So Abraham called that place The LORD Will Provide. And to this day it is said, “On the mountain of the LORD it will be provided.”  Genesis 22:14 
“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) 
“Praise God for His faithfulness. After two hard years of standing, my wife and I are getting back together. We will be meeting with our pastor for marriage counseling. I thank God that I never gave up. My prodigal spouse is also glad that I stood in faith as this has been the turning point in her life. God is faithful.” (South Africa)
"My husband agreed to go to counseling. During our second session he said he wants to recommit to work out our issues. God answers every prayer in His perfect timing." (New York)

"My wife and I split up. If there were ever circumstances that would seem as if I would never see the return of my wife, it would be this. I was left as a stander raising young children. I clung to God for my wife’s return. Today my wife has returned to me. To God be the glory." (New York)

“I was on vacation last week and it was a hard week for me except for one bright spot in the week. I was using my week to do some work at my mom's house. My husband came over to help with some of the carpenter work. He had told me earlier in the week he did not know how long he could stay. PTL! He got there at 10:30 A.M. and stayed until 9:00 P.M. that night. When we went to get the lumber for the work, on our way back to the house I saw a Covenant Transport truck.”  (Illinois) 
"God is my provider. My tuition fees are due in September and we were told they would be increased. I trimmed all I could from the budget and still did not see the additional. I told God He needed to provide the difference. I expected someone to be used by God and give me the difference but God caused the school to put off the increase. He still works in supernatural ways we cannot imagine." (Jamaica)
“I have been standing for my marriage for several months. My husband has been blinded by the fact that in his past his parents were not there for him and he had numerous sexual experiences with other boys. He told me he wants to leave me for he is sure he is a homosexual.  Over the past months I was a train wreck. Luckily, I came to this site and God and I have been taking a trip together. He has taught me that He was not in the center of my family, I always placed my husband first. I keep praying and treating God like my husband and am fighting spiritually for my husband as Satan is telling us such filth. I know God is with me and knows how to find my husband on speed dial. I wait.”  (South Africa)  
I have been standing for many years, becoming quite weary lately. I prayed specifically that if God was moving in my husband’s life that he would acknowledge my upcoming birthday. This has not happened in the past four years. Early on the morning of my birthday, I received a text from my husband, not only wishing me a happy birthday but also putting money into my daughter’s account to be able to take me out for dinner. I am encouraged and will continue to stand regardless of what others are saying around me. Help me God to keep my focus on You and not my circumstances.”  (North Carolina) 
"My husband and I have been restored for over two years. I cannot believe how much my husband loves me now. This must be God loving me through my husband, because I have never known this kind of love. This is such a testimony to me about how, when God does something, it is so much better than anything we try to make happen ourselves. I am so blessed." (Arizona)
"Yesterday my husband told me he has turned his life over to the Lord. He cries when he speaks of Jesus and he says he wants to rid of all sin, all lies, all deceit, all hurting of people out of his life forever. He prayed in a group last night and the elders told him there is a calling on his life to preach. What an awesome God we serve." (South Africa)
For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything. Hebrews 3:4 
“Praise the Lord for His special blessing. His mercy is new every morning. His compassion fails not. When I thought all was lost and that my wife was absolutely resolute in her determination to divorce, I received a text from her saying ‘There are times when I wonder how all of this happened. I wish I could wake up. It’s not a dream, it’s true. It saddens me to no end.’ I don't know what all that means but I do know that the Holy Spirit is working on her heart.”  (North Carolina) 
“My husband distanced himself from me and we were not communicating at all. He was involved with another woman and decided to marry her. When I heard about his plans, I prayed to God to restore my marriage. Today I am more than grateful to our great God...He did it! He restored my marriage. My husband has ended his relationship with the OW and is now committed to me and our children. Above all, he has turned to God. God is great!”  (Kenya) 
"Praise God, our divorce is not final. Not only did God answer me in my finances but, more importantly my marriage. I will continue to stand. This is the second time in court and the divorce remains pending." (California)
"Praise God, I can see Him working in my husband. Last night I received text messages that my husband wanted me to come get him. Although he said that this doesn't change anything, I could tell it made him think. I know God is working on my husband." (Pennsylvania)
"My husband has stopped contact with me and my children for many weeks. I asked God for a scripture and twice I received Malachi 4:6 (‘He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children.’) Yesterday my son called his grandpa and his daddy was there. He told my husband that he missed him and wanted to see him. Today I will be dropping them off for a visit. I checked the mail and received a letter from Rejoice Marriage Ministries with the scripture Malachi 4:6 confirming what God had promised me." (California)
"I have a praise report. After 15 months of waiting and praying, my husband came home to a loving, changed woman. God worked on me mercifully and He is currently working on changes and healing in my husband. It is scary, confusing and unnerving at times because I don't know what to do or say, but I do know that the Lord is with me and drawing my husband nearer to Him. We are learning to love each other again. Without your devotions I could not have made it!"
“I am thankful to my Lord despite a lengthy separation and no signs of reconciliation.  But I still believe.  The Lord is my strength.”  (California) 
“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse,  that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.”  Malachi 3:10 

"My prodigal started coming home more and even sent flowers and a nice card for Valentine's Day." (Georgia)

"God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?" Numbers 23:19

“My suddenly moment happened after months of praying for my husband. I prayed that morning that the Lord would surprise me somehow through my husband and that night, He did. The date was a special date to the both of us and God knew it. My husband came home changed, PTL. The Lord is continuing to restore us and renew our hearts towards Him. I will forever be thankful to RMM and all your prayers. Don't give up, God never will!”  (Florida)

"My spouse told me last week that he would be coming this weekend to get the rest of his things. He hasn't contacted me regarding this matter, an answered prayer. Praise the Lord for always hearing me." (Texas)
“I read the Charlyne Cares, The Shepherds Went To Seek The Lord,which wasabout visiting the Fort Lauderdale Pageant and felt very down as we don't have anything like that in my area and even if we did my kids would never come with me! Then that night we were invited to a very lively carol concert and my kids agreed to come with me! And the next day I was flicking through the channels when I found a channel showing the Fort Lauderdale pageant! I laughed out loud; our God is so amazing! Like Charlyne says 'little nuggets of gold' sent from God to bless us. Merry Christmas to all of you wonderful standers. Our miracles are on the way. God loves everyone of us! “  (United Kingdom) 
"My spouse has been calling for a few months. We have spent time together. The other woman is jealous and distraught. God gave me a heart for how she was feeling. I prayed that she reach out to God, not man. My husband called and we spoke for an hour. God continues to bring my husband to me." (Canada)
Sunday after my wife (an at home prodigal) went to bed, I picked up my Bible to do some reading. Before I opened it I prayed, ‘Father you said if we need wisdom all we have to do is ask and you will give it to us.’ It opened to Ezekiel 36:8b-9a - ‘they will come home, and I am for you.’ Then Verse 36b jumped out at me. ‘I the Lord hath spoken, I will do it.’ Praise God! He knows just what we need. That has completely sealed the deal for me. I know my God is at work.”  (Tennessee) 
“The day after Christmas, my separated wife told me she had filed for divorce. I cried out to God to give me a sign to continue my stand. A few minutes later a song, I Can Only Imagine, came on the radio. It is a song God has used throughout my stand when I need to hear from Him. A song that was special to me and my wife. He then spoke to my heart that He is here, to have faith, and He would heal my marriage. He kept saying I am God and to be ready because He was going to touch her so that she would know He is God. I immediately was enveloped in such peace. All glory to my Heavenly Father!”  (Oklahoma)
"My husband and I are divorced and continents apart. Lately he has been referring to me as his wife and talking about me going back home. Yesterday he called and asked me to email him a list of what I would like in the new house that he's thinking of building. As ecstatic as I was, I was also starting to feel a little anxious. A few hours later, Charlyne's devotional, 'Allow God To Rebuild Your Marriage' arrived. Thank You, Lord, that You are the Master Architect and Builder of our house, both physically & spiritually." (Australia)
“About eight years ago my husband asked me for a divorce. I thought my world had come to an end. A few weeks later God lead me to Rejoice Marriage Ministries. I learned to stand for our marriage, to wait for God's timing, and not mine. By the grace of our Lord, my husband and I celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary. It is a blessing, a gift from God. I pray to the Lord above that you will ask God for guidance, and never give up or give in. Marriage is a gift, a wonder gift. Do not listen to the voices of friends, go to God. Please take one step at a time and wait for God's timing. When God knows you and your loved one are ready, it will happen.”  (Texas)
"Praise The Lord, my prodigal husband called to ask to pick up our daughter and keep her for the weekend and take her shopping for her birthday. My husband has not called me in months, but called several times yesterday. I will continue to fast and pray. Our children and our future grandchildren are depending on my stand for righteousness." (Oklahoma)
