"My kids didn't want to go with my husband. An hour later he called and asked if all of us could be ready that evening to go to dinner and a movie as a family. We went and had a wonderful time. I have been praying to God to let us be together as a family and God gave us a glimpse of what His restored gift will be like on that special night. Thank You Jesus." (Michigan) (posted 1/30/2009)
Then will the eyes of the blind be opened and the ears of the deaf unstoppedIsaiah 35:5  (posted 10/4/2011)
"I have been standing for my marriage for a few years. In the beginning I contacted my wife to convince her to return. God lead me to be still and wait for Him and seek first His Kingdom. Yesterday I was frustrated and cried out to God asking what He wanted me to do. I started to read my One Year Bible. I felt lead by God to read the scriptures on the date of my wife's birthday and these words leaped off the page, 'Be still, wait and trust on the Lord.' God will restore our marriage in His timing." (Norway) (posted 2/12/2010)
"Divorce papers have been submitted for the judge's final approval. Yet I rejoice. I am more in love with my wonderful wife now than ever before. I praise God He has directed my stand for Him and has spoken to me that I will go through divorce. As Lazarus died and was buried, so will our marriage. All the greater miracle for Jesus to be praised. He calls me to stand. I love my Savior and Lord." (Virginia) (posted 5/1/2009)
“I have been standing for some time and started to feel weary and discouraged because of my circumstances. But God! I prayed and asked the Lord to show me His will, and He gave me Job 41 and 42. Right after that my husband called and invited me to go to the movies with them! PTL!”  (Brazil)  (posted 4/22/2013)
“Since my husband left, I have encountered many ‘coincidences’ – which, upon further consideration, have been recognized as ‘God moments’ because coincidence cannot fully explain the happenings. God has provided for my diverse and unusual needs in a variety of ways. Each need I have is fulfilled, and every time I am discouraged and ready to give up on a seemingly hopeless marital situation, a very clear message arrives to bolster my reserves. I am eternally uplifted by the testimonies of hope and restoration I read at RMM, and pray that one day my family will be re-united.”  (Canada) (posted 8/3/2013)
"I have been separated by mutual choice. I was a terrible wife, treated my husband horribly. I filed for a divorce. But I accepted the Lord in my life and He showed me what type of wife I was to be. I truly believe that God took me out of marriage to show me how valuable it really was. Along the way, I kept praying and believing. In June, while sitting at my desk crying and asking God what should I do, I distinctly heard two things – first, "Put me first" and secondly, "I will send him home." He allowed my husband to return home. During my stand, my husband specifically said to me "we will be divorced one way or the other." Praise God for His faithfulness and love." (West Virginia) (posted 11/20/2004)
“I am so grateful that God has given me such godly parents. One of my prayers is often that God will restore my marriage so that my children will have the godly parents that I have had. I am especially honored to have a mother who stands with me in prayer for the healing of my marriage. She is one of the few people who does not think that I am crazy for praying for my husband and my marriage despite how things look currently. No matter how angry she gets at my husband, she goes to God's Word and prays His Word. She points me back to His Word when I am having a hard time. We attend the same church and it is very comforting to me to see her praying at the altar every Sunday for my marriage and my family. This Mother's Day I am especially grateful for my mother!”  (Alabama) (posted 5/12/2012)

“For months after asking Christ back into my life, I've been standing in the gap for my wife. I left after finding out about some circumstances. Through weekly fasting and prayer, I've begged Jesus to lead me home to be with my family. My wife told me to just move on. But I kept fasting and praying. As of now, I'm home with my children more often. God led me home. He is working on me, my kids, and I know my wife. I saw four Swift trucks today - though I don't ever remember seeing them in the past. God is good. All the time.”  (North Carolina)

 "I have posted several court dates over the past year. For reasons that God knows, they have been delayed. We were scheduled for a jury rial and even picked a jury, but after lunch when we came back into te courtroom my husband (who filed) asked to cancel or get a continuance, saying he was not prepared yet. Praise to the Lord." (Georgia) (posted 4/23/2012)

“I’m so happy I have a testimony to share; as most of you know that means I have been tested. I just praise God and want to send fellow standers hope, that God is truly faithful! My husband was supposed to be home for Thanksgiving. Things didn’t go as we hoped and planned. God is still faithful and He has his own timing. Long testimony short, God brought my prodigal spouse home just like He showed me in a vision. Keep the faith standers, I’m still standing with you and God is too! Zechariah 4:6.”  (California)

“Out of obedience, I made fudge and delivered it to my prodigal. He thanked me but stated that he was ‘moving on’ and the court date in six weeks would be the final end. I cried out to God in tears: ‘Do WHATEVER it takes, Lord. I am willing!’ The very next night our dogs got into a fight (very odd). I ended up with a terrible bite and a broken hand. My son called our prodigal for help while I was at the hospital. While in the ER I prayed that he would see this as a picture of how life had been since he left us - chaotic, unprotected, and terribly injured. When he saw my stitches and cast, God broke him. He literally came to his senses. He has now ended all legal action, put all finances back together and we've reconciled. My ‘WHATEVER’ prayer initiated a wild scenario I could never have dreamt, but through it God brought my husband back to his covenant with God and me. I am so grateful and give all the praise to our God!”  (Tennessee)

I am the Lord, the God of all mankind.  Is anything too hard for me?”  Jeremiah 32:27  (posted 8/13/2012)

"After months of separation, praise God, I've been back in the house for several weeks now, though my wife says it is still month-to-month. My posting this testimony is for the purpose of claiming Christ's victory in my wife's heart over the enemy's deceit in general. God will open her eyes fully, and quickly with persistent prayer."  (North Carolina)

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)
“I have been a stander for many years and rejoice to the Lord for all He has done in this long season. He has been teaching me to be faithful in Him for all things and learning to be obedient and trust when there was no sign on my side of the mountain. I received a text from my prodigal tonight that said he and the OW are done and he believes permanently this time. There are new sprouts poking from the dirt of this desolate marriage. Ezekiel 36:33-36. Trust in the Lord, standers, and never give up. The devil is a liar. The circumstances are liars. Our God is Sovereign and His Word is the truth on which we stand.”  (Texas)  (posted 5/16/2013)
"Many times, I have prayed, asking God to direct me and give me discernment about a decision. He is faithful, standing as my husband while my one-flesh spouse is far away. I have been worried because we had to sell our home. Where would we be restored? I opened my 'Charlyne Cares' this morning to read Bob's Prodigal Perspective on how God can rebuild our home and family. He has it all planned out. I just need to be patient and let Him guide me. Thank you for letting God use you to offer encouragement." (North Carolina) (posted 4/23/2010)
"PTL! I had been standing for a few months since separated from my husband who had said he didn't love me anymore and left. I kept up with the devotionals from Rejoice Marriage Ministries which gave me so much encouragement. My husband returned a couple of weeks ago and yesterday he told me 'let's try again, I love you.' He had not said he loved me in so long. I know God answers prayers when you decide to live for Christ and not for man."  (Texas)  (posted 6/13/2011)
No one is like you, O LORD; you are great, and your name is mighty in power.  Jeremiah 10:6 (posted 10/29/2011)
“Praise God, my wife is home! Through many months I heard all the things read about on this site. I saw the ugly emotions and heard the ugly way prodigals talk to standers. I was told there was no chance, she had her free will. There was no sign in the natural that she was close; circumstances did not point to her coming back. But God! My suddenly happened, out of the blue. Now she is invested in me, the kids, and the future. God's ways are higher than our ways and it will come to pass in His timing! I read the Saturday testimonies and never thought I would be able to post. Hold tight standers. God cannot lie. There will be a day where God will move and all your reality will change for his Glory."  (Arizona) (posted 5/16/2013)
But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong….Therefore, as it is written: “Let him who boasts boast in the Lord.”  1 Corinthians 27, 31  (posted 8/8/2012)
"Today God did an awesome thing. My pastor asked my spouse to sing at church on Sunday after hearing a song he had written about turning to God during hard times. My spouse has been seeing my pastor for counseling. God's work behind the scenes is amazing." (State Removed) (posted 1/8/2010)
“I believe God has told me that my husband will return to us very soon. God has answered many of my prayers and now I stand for my marriage and all marriages. My heavenly Father is my closest confidant!”  (Australia)  (posted 2/14/2012)
“Praise God Almighty. My husband and the OW have ended their relationship. I didn't know about it until I found out on social networks a couple of weeks ago. God had put an impression on me that by the end of 2013, our marriage would be restored. When the clock struck midnight and I hadn't seen or heard from my husband, I was distraught. It’s been almost three months since they broke up. Right now, my husband seems confused as he mentioned that he's thinking a lot about the subject of marriage lately. Please pray for us, as we wait for God's perfect timing and restoration.”  (South Africa) (posted 2/11/2014)
"My husband got trapped by sin. Since I believe in marriage I will stand by my husband for I have forgiven him. My husband is calling a lot and that is a blessing." (Kansas) (posted 11/21/2008)
"My prodigal returned home recently. I am thankful to your ministry for encouraging me daily to stand and believe. I know that I still need to stand as my spouse needs to be strengthened in the Word, and get his life back on track, but I know all of this will happen in God’s time. My desire and prayer is for God to be glorified in the complete healing and restoration of our marriage, so that we can be a support and strength to other couples. I will continue to pray for Bob, Charlyne, other standers and prodigals."  (Connecticut) (posted 1/19/2011)

"My prodigal husband came to visit over the festive season. We decided on trying to sort things out, taking things one day at a time. I just love having him home. I thank God for what He has done. Thanks for your help. You encouraged me more than you will ever know." (South Africa)

(posted 1/4/2008)
“I have been standing for many months and, praise God, my husband is home. It has been a slow process but God was faithful the whole time. God even prepared me for the news that the OW is pregnant. I knew God told me my marriage would be restored, I just didn't know when or what it would look like. Our daughters are young adults so a newborn will be a challenge but I know God will guide us through. I never thought I would be able to handle an affair much less a child But God! God has changed me so much these past months. I read His Word every day and never stop praying. The changes that God has made in me have been worth every tear I have cried. I do know the days ahead may be bumpy but I will trust God, read His Word, pray, and keep standing.” (Mississippi) (posted 3/3/2014)
“I have been separated for several years now, and at the beginning of our separation, God led me to your ministry through another stander. It really helped me to not give up and not listen to the many voices that told me to move on without my husband. I know Jesus will answer my prayers because they are in His will for my marriage to last forever. Even though it looks hopeless, I know God is working behind the scenes and on our hearts to forgive and love as He does. I recently received a personal prophecy that I have been through some tough times, but healing and restoration is going to happen before the end of this year, so I am believing it! All things are possible with God! He really does turn everything around for good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose!” (Hawaii) (posted 9/19/2014)

“This Easter Sunday my husband and I sat together in church. I was so over joyed I ran around the church during worship. Hallelujah to the Lamb of God who answers prayer.” (New Hampshire)

(posted 3/8/2012)
"My husband who does not live at home right now, brought a Christmas tree over while I was at work. I already had our old tree up, so he took the other one back. He was thinking of our family. I needed this at an uncertain time." (Iowa) (posted 1/8/2009)
"I have been broken, humiliated and ashamed of my husband, as I found out he has a child with the other woman. Yet I have learned how to fast and pray for my husband’s deliverance and restoration of our marriage. I am still praying and crying out to God for a 'New Beginning.' I am believing that when my husband returns we will have our son. I would never have come to know God in the way I have if this situation had not arisen and for this I am so glad." (United Kingdom) (posted 1/10/2011)
"God is using this time to teach me to let go of my stubborn independence and look to Him for everything. There were things that I was hanging onto in regard to my prodigal husband and God was telling me to confess and let go, but I was afraid that my husband would be angry with me. When I finally let go and let God, I felt such peace. Just over a week later, my husband sent me an email saying that he was not angry or mad with me. God is changing me and softening my husband's heart towards me. Despite seeing no other signs of what is happening on the other side of the mountain, I know God is working and will bring my husband into a relationship with Him and send my husband home in His perfect timing.”  (New Zealand) (posted 11/18/2013)

“I got an anniversary card from the ministry on Sunday and then suddenly, the next week, my husband packed his bags and came home. SUDDENLY! I really want to share this testimony here because all the devotions sent to me every day have done a great job in me. Keep praying because God is faithful.”  (Uganda)

(posted 5/14/2014)
“I have been standing a couple of years now. God has been very good to continue to put off our divorce many times from a finalization. As well, He has been faithful to confirm over and over again that my prodigal will come home. I prayed and asked God to give my son a dream that we were all a family again and tell me about it. Two days later he woke up and told me ‘Mommy, I had a dream we were all a family again. Daddy, me and you were at Disneyland and we had a little sister!’ I know God will send my husband home, praying it be soon. Amen.” (Oregon)  (posted 2/16/2012)
Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:3-4 (posted 2/18/2011)
“Praise be to God! My husband called one Sunday after I got out of church just to see how I was doing because he had not heard from me for so long! A month or two later he called again asking me to go to dinner with him this weekend! I am so excited and so grateful to God. I did not think God was hearing my prayers but I know that He is and He does! I believe God is turning things around and I thank Him for letting me find this ministry when I did and decided to stand for my marriage in spite of what my family, friends or church said!”  (Oklahoma)  (posted 2/12/2013)
"My son (in the military) is stuck in Kuwait and can’t come home yet because of the volcano in Iceland. I believed I was to pray and ask God to change the direction of the wind and clear a path for him to come home. On the news the next evening was a report that the wind and ash was changing direction. God is good to me." (Oregon) (posted 4/23/2010)
"God has been faithful to me in 2008. I have maintained employment with my company and we have increased and added more staff. My children and I are well. We are all saved. In my church body, we continue to draw close to our Lord, and to each other. I have a vehicle, as do my children. We have food and shelter. God has been faithful to my family and I thank You Lord, for all Your blessings." (Ohio) (posted 12/26/2008)

“Almost five years of separation, God has brought my husband home! He has been so faithful. I am so thankful for all that God has done in my own heart, in my family, in our marriage and in my husband’s heart. A few days prior to my spouse's return, God brought me to Isaiah 62:4. To all standers who want to give up, please don't. God's plan and purpose will prevail and you will be so blessed. You may not know it now, but your spouse is taking notice of all that you do and someday you will see the soft heart the Lord gives. Be blessed dear standers, fight the good fight for HE is faithful and He has called YOU!”  (New York)

“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)  (posted 12/23/2012)
"I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?" Jeremiah 32:27 (posted 12/19/2008)

"On Mother's Day, my husband cleaned our home, took care of our daughter, and took me out to dinner. He told me numerous times that he loved me and that I was beautiful. It felt like old times again. God is so good. We still have a long road to go down for restoration of our marriage, but God showed me that day that all things are possible in Him." (Missouri)

(posted 5/7/2012)
"I do believe God is doing a new thing. Many people are coming together in our area to pray for marriages and families to be restored, praying for those who have gone away from our Lord to be restored back to Him. The time is in His hands. He gives strength to keep us going. We thank Him for the work He has started." (United Kingdom) (posted 11/20/2009)
"Two minutes after spending time with the Lord in prayer, my husband called me from overseas. I was praying for my husband's salvation and for him to obey the Lord. It has taken one year for my husband to obey God and to call our daughter and me. God is on the other end speaking to our prodigals." (District of Columbia) (posted 9/5/2008)
"Today was the day our divorce was to be final. When asked by the judge if I agreed with everything, he said it was totally my choice and if I didn't agree with the divorce I could say so. I said no. He said to set a trial date. I had prayed for God to delay the process yet again and He did." (Illinois) (posted 4/3/2009)
"Recently, I asked a prophet of God when my husband would be coming home. The prophet prayed and said she saw a beautiful, large rainbow in an arc going from the left to the right. I was on the right at the end of the rainbow and extremely happy. Previously, I asked the Lord for a rainbow inside our house if He was going to restore our marriage. My children and I saw the rainbow on our living room carpet daily for weeks. A rainbow means covenant and it's not an accident that my sign of my covenant marriage being restored is a rainbow which is our covenant from God that He will do what He promised!" (Illinois) (posted 1/10/2011)
"Discovering this ministry was so valuable to me. It was like finding a diamond in a dark, sinful world, where people are told that divorce is the only option for a wayward spouse. Thank God for your telling people the truth that marriage is for life." (Tennessee) (posted 9/3/2010)
“Hallelujah! I had court the other day, as a respondent to my wife's petition. I have been praying that there would be no divorce on that day. I hadn’t seen my wife in many months but she did not show up. I let the judge know my soul purpose for being there was to save my marriage. But she must show up on our next appearance or the petition would be dismissed. I shouted Hallelujah! with a positive response from the judge and the rest of court room. This was the second Hallelujah. The first one was when the LORD allowed me to witness a reconciliation earlier. Praise GOD that there were no divorces at all that day.”  (California)  (posted 11/27/2011)
