“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)

"(Husband) called me to see what I had gotten our son for Easter. When I hung up, I had a feeling come across me and I called him back and asked him if he wanted to join me and our son for Easter brunch after our church service. He said that he'd like that. Later on at work that night, I just flipped open the Bible and immediately saw 1 Samuel 12:7 which says to take your stand and I knew it was a message from the Lord for me not to give up, even when the circumstances looked so bleak. Praise The Lord." (Ohio)

“God is working on the other side of my mountain. My favorite verse to pray for my husband is Job 33:14-18, 26-28. The Lord showed me he is working today when my husband told me that he woke up screaming the other night, ‘I want to come home.’ God is awesome! He is speaking to my husband. Our miracle is right around the corner. PTL!”  (West Virginia)
“I am so glad I read the devotional I Quit. Satan battled me this past weekend with my prodigal's indifference to me. I was ready to throw in the towel when my mother suggested I praise God for where I am in my stand this week. As a result, I dove into the Word and began citing scriptures on restoration. I also searched the site for articles regarding endurance or not quitting. Bob's message regarding his resignation at 18 in the devotional, touched my heart and I am renewing my stand with my all my heart. I will praise God right where I am STANDING. 2 Chronicles 20:15”  (California) 
"My husband had filed for divorce and our date was in January. I have been standing and staying close to God. Rejoice Ministries has given me the tools to stand. I have been fasting for months for myself and everyone standing. On that day in court, I hadn't seen my husband for many months. When he went to talk to his lawyer, I pulled out my Bible while sitting on the court bench and prayed Psalm 35, Psalm 46 and Matthew 19:4-6, Proverbs 27, and Hebrews 4:12. Then my husband called my name and decided to drop the divorce!" (Illinois)
"Praise God, my daughter-in-law’s boyfriend moved out. She still is out-of-state but I am confident that God is working on the other side of the mountain." (Pennsylvania)
"An old friend, whom my husband had not seen in years, learned of his illness, visited and invited my husband to attend his church service. The friend and his congregation had been praying for my husband's health. My husband agreed to go. He told me he was surprised by the service. I asked if he would consider going again and he said yes. Only the might of God could have accomplished this." (Vermont)
“While we wait on God's timing my children are learning to pray, at young ages. They are really praying, waking up in the middle of the night and saying, ‘Let's pray for Daddy.’ I praise God that they are learning now that the battle is a spiritual battle, that we do not war against flesh and blood. My son said he is so calm because God will do what He promised, God always wins. My daughter says Jesus almost has Daddy's heart. Look what the Lord has done!”  (Guatemala)
"On Sunday after service, and with my parents and my son with me, I had a person who is part of a restored marriage share how God had given her a new job and through it a relationship healing. Not even ten minutes later I found out a family I had been praying for had also been restored. God is good." (Minnesota)
"I was very hurt this past weekend and called my husband. I was ready to give up. I cried and told the Lord I couldn't do it anymore. My husband and I had a nice conversation. He told me that he could not afford the divorce right now and did not know when he could. Praise the Lord." (California)
“We caused ourselves a lot of debt not only through our marriage problems but also through bad spending habits. I kept praying over the bills and also read a few testimonies of God supernaturally paying off debt. We received a tax return this year that can only be explained by our Lord which was able to settle most of it, Then today I received a phone call stating that my grandma, who passed several years ago, left me as beneficiary on a small life insurance policy. Just enough to cover the rest of the debt! All glory goes to our Mighty God! Amen!”  (Illinois)  
“After several years of standing for my wife to come home, two weeks ago she texted me saying she couldn't do it anymore by herself. My suddenly has happened. We are now planning on getting remarried in February of next year. I am still in awe at God's power. I had given up towards the end and started to try to move on with another woman but God wouldn't allow it. I tried but God told me, ‘What makes you think I'm going to give you more or less than what I already promised you.’ Now we are doing great and there is blessing every step of the way. We have a long ways to go and, as she said, a lot of catching up to do. God is so wonderful and gracious. Please never give up standers. You never know when your suddenly will come. Stay faithful and wait on God. Make Him your spouse as you await the arrival of your broken spouse. God will restore if you just wait on Him. Thank you RMM for all your support and help. May God continue to use you in a mighty way like He has in my life. God bless!”  (Louisiana) 
“I just wanted to give a quick praise report. Last night my husband and I were talking and he mentioned he had spoken to the OW that he was involved with about something not related to our situation. I stopped, took a deep breath, and said that I wished he wouldn't contact her. No crying, no blame, just a simple request. He said okay. God is good. All the time. He is repairing the breach. It's already done. I'm just seeing the manifestation of it more and more each day. Praying and standing for healed marriages everywhere. Thank You Jesus. All the glory to God.”  (North Carolina) 
“Six months to the day after he moved out, my husband texted me to say he had ended the relationship with the other woman and was coming home. I know we have a hard road of rebuilding ahead of us, but it is so worth it. God keeps His promises, and I know He will be faithful to complete the work of restoration He has started in our marriage. Early in my stand, God gave me Exodus 14:13-14 and it was true. I didn't have to do anything but trust, wait patiently, and keep my mouth shut. God did the work!”  (Minnesota) 
And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:19

“After several years, my husband showed up at our house SUDDENLY, telling me that he loved me and that the non-covenant is going to be moving out of their house. God had told me some years ago what He was going to do in my life and marriage, and He has done it. For my husband to come to our house and tell me the things that he has done is only from God. When he left he told me that he would never love me again and wanted nothing to do with me. Now he tells me he loves me and wants to move home. He is still not quite there yet but I know what is coming and it has already been done, I am just waiting for the manifestation. This is HUGE in my life. We had no contact for over two years. So for this to happen it is for God’s glory.”  (Missouri)

“After reading Charlyne's devotional titledDo You Believe?I decided to follow her instructions and find and meditate on scriptures about believing. I then decided to put my faith into practice. I opened my patio door and spoke aloud to the heavens and asked the Lord to call my husband by name and get his attention today and turn his heart to Him and to our family. I asked God to touch my husband and encourage him to call me and our daughter and communicate with us today. During dinner that evening my phone rang and it was my husband. After having not heard from him in over a month this was in fact a miracle. My husband spoke with such joy and even told me he feels bad for not being around and calling. God does answer prayer and the answer isn't always as far off as we would think. PTL.”  (Georgia)
“When Jesus says YES nobody can say no and that is exactly what is happening in my life and marriage. I have been praying, reading my Bible and fasting. My husband filed many months ago and the judge has refused to grant the divorce. God is working behind the scenes and in the supernatural. Almost every day I see small signs that my suddenly is about to happen. I know that God is working on me and my husband, preparing us for our new and improved marriage. I know that soon my husband's eyes will be opened, his heart softened and until then I will keep worshipping my God, the author of time, king of restoration.” (South Africa)
"I thank and praise God that my husband called me today and said that he was sorry for what he has done to the family. He said that God is not allowing him to rest. Thank You, Jesus for giving me a glimmer of hope." (Nevada)

"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)

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland. Isaiah 43:19
"My husband called me and said that he has been doing some soul searching and wants to get back together. Praise the Lord." (Michigan)
"My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever." Psalm 73:26
“I want to share that today, my husband and I spent the day together. After taking him around to get a job application, he asked if I would treat him to lunch. I did, and I am so thankful to God that we were able to spend time together and be at peace. It felt like old times again. Now I patiently wait for that day when he comes home for good!”  (Alabama) 
“To God I give all my praise. He is the One who gives me strength each and every day. I was picking my daughter up from school and she was telling how God is blessing her in school. We prayed before she went back that she would be blessed with teachers who believed in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. My daughter was so excited when she found out one of her teachers was a pastor. Thank you Lord! That was the same day I got my letter for mediation. I was feeling a little down. My daughter gave comforting words that ‘God will never leave us.’ When we saw a Swift truck, I told her significance of the truck. We started to praise the Lord together. Thank you Father for your faithfulness.” (Georgia)
“But if it were I, I would appeal to God; I would lay my cause before him. He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.”  Job 5:8-9 
"My wife and I met with our counselor for the first time since she divorced me. She said the Lord had convicted her heart that she shouldn't have divorced me and that He was leading her to seek restoration for our marriage." (New Jersey)
“My car broke down on Halloween with all four of my kids. The only person I knew with a vehicle large enough to pick us all up at once was my prodigal wife. I hesitated, but took a chance. My prodigal rearranged her schedule to pick us up and offered to help in any way she could. A couple days later she offered to help fix the car or tow it. We spent several hours working on the car and driving around while it was being fixed. We didn’t talk much but it was peaceful, a day of encouragement from our Lord. Praise the Lord our Savior, Redeemer, Provider, Encourager, and Counselor. Fill us with the Holy Spirit to overflowing Father. We believe you. We trust you. We submit to Your will and Your way.”  (Texas)
“Praises and glory to our Father in Heaven; God keeps His promises. The Lord is working in my husband's life and changes are happening. Thanks Rejoice Marriage Ministries for the support given to standers and prodigals. Our God is a good God, fair and just. I want to praise Him for leading me as I travel this valley. Our Lord hears our prayers and in HIS time answers. PRAYER changes people! Keep the faith and pray without ceasing. My Lord continues to mold me. The Holy Spirit continues work in my husband until our marriage and family is restored. God will provide my husband strength to leave the other relationship. Keep praying for standers, prodigals and restoration. Thank You Lord Jesus for loving us, never leaving nor forsaking us. GLORY to GOD for great things He has done and is doing!”  (Florida) 
"Thank you once again for your faithfulness. After years of standing, it's easy to become comfortable and complacent with the blessings the Lord has poured into my life and for the fervor to wane. May I never forget that my husband's eternal life is what I'm interceding for as well as for my family to be restored." (Texas)
“I have had a phone friend for the last 18 months whom I have never met because we are on the east and west coasts. She felt it was time to meet and she helped pay for me to come to the Dallas RMM. What a blessing she is to finally see in person. I also met other standers from my state and a fellow stander in Dallas. I know now that God had us sit together for the weekend. A new friend on one side and my forever friend on the other.”  (Georgia)

"My husband and I got back together after months of separation. I stood for my marriage the whole time, and thanks to God and "Charlyne Cares," I got through. We celebrated our anniversary last week. On that day, God tested my husband. He saw the other woman unexpectedly even though she lives miles away. He decided not to talk to her because there was no point. He didn't feel anything for her and felt happy with me. He told me he is where he wants to be and in the anniversary card he thanked me for not giving up on us, even though when we were apart he thought I was crazy for waiting for him to come back. God is amazing."  (United Kingdom)

“One of your devotionals blessed me tremendously, especially the line that says, ‘I understand the pain that comes when you look at a person you once knew and see a stranger.’ I have been struggling to put that into words for years and you just did it so simply. Also, I asked for prayer regarding decent accommodations and the finances to be able to get it. I also asked that God will enable me to pay a maximum of six months to one year of rent, because in this part of the world where I live the landlords can request three years or more upfront payment on a rental property. God did it! God bless all of you for your tremendous support.”  (Ghana)
“When my husband filed for divorce, I had to leave where my job was and move in with my parents while my husband stayed at our old home 1000 miles away. However, God is only an arm stretch away and we have to hold on to His promises and desire the change and purpose He has in mind for us. He removed me from the job that I put ahead of Him and my husband and placed me in a new occupation that will allow me to focus on my husband and his well-being. You cannot serve two masters and thanks to God's mercy, my new job is better than the one I sacrificed my marriage for. God is transforming this stander to submit herself to her husband, as to the Lord. Before a change can be made in your spouse, a change must first be made in you.”  (Missouri) 
"My husband and I were separated for months and it was very difficult. I began to stand for my marriage as the Lord requested me to. I sought God during that time and He answered me. My husband is back home and is getting closer to the Lord. Praise the Lord for my marriage is built upon a solid rock." (South Africa)

"Praise to our Father God, prodigals do come home. I prayed, scared and hopeful at the same time. I am happy to say God changed my husband's heart and mine. We are like newlyweds all over. He is going to church again and reading his Bible. We are praying together, and planning to attend a marriage conference. My prayer is that we would boldly proclaim the gospel of Christ with our lives and win others to Him. Your daily devotions were full of scripture and encouraged me in my stand. I thank God for you." (North Carolina)

"I will exalt you, O LORD, for you lifted me out of the depths and did not let my enemies gloat over me. O LORD my God, I called to you for help and you healed me." Psalm 30:1-2
“PTL! A few days after the Holy Spirit, simultaneously, instructed a fellow Christian friend and I to pray for my spouse, he called me to asked me to be do something for him that I could not have imagined in my wildest would happen. I have not had much contact with him and the few were very angry on his part. I have to also give thanks to God for the godly friends andintercessors and thank Him for an answered prayer about a praying partner, who God lovingly placed on my path two months prior. Thanks to this young lady and some other friends, I had a recent victory from lies of the enemy. Praise God, I will always claim Isaiah 54:17. God is working wonders in me every day. In God I trust as He is the builder/rebuilder of our lives. Amen.”  (Florida)
“God will restore my marriage! I have been praying for some time for the Lord to communicate with me in some way. Today I was in the dentist's office waiting so I decided to read my Bible. Suddenly a verse showed itself to me. It was Isaiah 43:18-19. The good Lord has already started something new on the other side of my mountain of circumstances. Even though I'm traveling through a desert in my life, the Lord will make a road for me. I can't wait to see what God Almighty has in store for my spouse and I! Praise the Lord!”  (Florida) 
Hiding God's Word in my heart helps me to speak God's Word over my circumstances with the authority of Jesus! God's Word does not return void! Memorizing His Word means I can speak to my mountains instantly!! Help me Holy Spirit to memorize your Word!!! God Bless you all!!!  (California)

“I know the Lord will mend our marriage with time. It had been some time since we had spoken to each other on the phone. I was reading last weekend’s testimonies. One in particular was about a wife who asked God to have her husband call if he was being touched. He had called that evening. I thought it would be weird if that happened to me, but it would be impossible since my wife rarely calls me just to chat. Sure enough she called an hour later to see how I was doing and ask if I wanted to get together for Easter. God is wonderful and he continues to communicate to me to be patient and wait for His time.” (Florida)

“It has been some years since my journey began. My husband has been back and forth several times. After this last time, I felt like giving up, like it was impossible because my husband just kept doing the same thing over and over. But God... Something changed in my husband’s heart this last time. In the past his response had always been anger and leaving, but this time he was repentant. He broke down and told me he was sorry and he wanted our marriage to be fixed. Since then we have become very close and he is seeking counseling and accountability on his own, without any pressure from me. God said years ago he would fix my marriage, and after several false starts, He is finally bringing to completion what He started. Praise God!”  (Colorado) 
"I asked the Lord for a sign that He is still working on my prodigal. A week later, my prodigal came over bearing (Christmas) gifts for our children. I was asked for a hug before he left. What a beautiful gift." (Ohio)
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  Philippians 4:4-6         
“I wanted to share with you and other standers, that after being separated for a couple of years and served with divorce papers back in November, I submitted our names to the RMM Court Page seeking prayer for intervention. PTL we did not go to court as scheduled. We are still separated and communication is very limited but I am trusting in our Lord for a restored marriage. I just wanted to encourage other standers with very little faith, as I have had. Thank you RMM and prayer warriors for your faithfulness and continued prayers for restoring what matters to God, and that is family.” (Virginia)
"My husband went to church with us on Sunday for the first time in a year. Praise God. He spent all day Sunday with us before going to the airport going back north. He normally leaves much earlier. He also fixed the door lock on our home. In spite of circumstances, God is softening my husband’s heart to come back home, in Jesus Name." (Florida)
“In the midst of standing for my one flesh covenant, I've received a miracle. Over 20 years ago my father had a disagreement with two members of the family. I was called over the weekend that my father was severely ill and the outcome was looking weary. BUT GOD, had not only healed my dad, but has also provided forgiveness with the two members of the family. In addition to the blessings, my prodigal called to speak to my dad. I was calm because I received reassurance from the Lord. Psalm 103:3-5.”  (Florida)
“God is worthy of all praise. After standing for some time now I saw my first Covenant Transport Truck. I was so excited. I began to praise God. It was so amazing. It traveled on the same highway as I was on the way to see my dearly beloved husband. God is faithful if we just believe.”  (Georgia) 
"I called out to God two days ago and asked for His sign to confirm my stand. My husband called me to get a ride somewhere the other woman did not want to take him. As I was driving with him I saw a Covenant Transport truck parked at a gas station." (Georgia) What’s a Covenant Transport truck?
