And so after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised.  Hebrews 6:15  (posted 6/19/2012)

But as for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.  Psalm 71:14

“Today I went on my husband's Facebook page which I rarely do anymore because I usually see something that bothers me but today was different. I saw that he was a member of a page called FATHER THANK YOU. This is a miracle because my husband is an unbeliever and doesn’t believe in God at all. I couldn’t believe it! I am praying and believing that God will speak to him through this page every day as he gets status updates and it will convict him to repent, leave the other woman and come back to his family. I know God is moving even if I can’t see it! We serve a God of miracles! Hallelujah!”  (New Jersey)  (posted 2/4/2012)
“My husband has come back home! We have been divorced for seven years and there were no signs that he was coming back. There were times that I wanted to give up but then I would ask God to give me the desire to pray for him again and He always did. He is faithful. My husband called me and asked if he could stay with me and of course I said yes. He has now told numerous people that we are working on getting back together. Do not give up.” (Michigan)  (posted 10/23/2011)
“I have been struggling a little lately but also encouraged by all of these testimonies. I have been standing for a couple years. I am divorced and my wife has another person in her life but God has given me dream after dream, showing me what to pray for and showing us being remarried. He showed me how my spouse was concerned about how I felt when she met up with me and the other guy was there. She kept texting me after I drove away. Then God told me her heart is softening and the more it softens the more she lets me in and the more she hears my voice. Praise God! I am praying for you all!”  (Iowa) (posted 3/23/2015)
“PTL my spouse told me he wants to move home! I'm still in shock because I've had such a bad week, and have been attacked by the enemy over and over. I was really down, but I did feel down in my spirit something good was coming, and I told myself that it made sense, because I wouldn't be having so much opposition if I weren't doing things God's way. Well, my husband came and spent today with the kids and me. I told him I missed him and his response was, 'I want to move home.' Thank You Jesus! This must have been what I felt coming up in my spirit! While he did admit it wouldn't be tomorrow, and he still isn't saved, God has been doing a mighty work in my husband's heart. Don't ever give up standers! Thank you RMM for your encouragement!”  (Texas) (posted 9/30/2013)
"I have been using my Rejoice Marriage Ministries Bible reading calender to follow my daily reading. I was supposed to read the first two chapters in Galatians this morning, but somehow I accidently read the first two Chapters in 2 Corinthians. Then I read 'Charlyne Cares' and Bob said he read a verse not intended so I felt like God confirmed that to me." (North Carolina) (posted 4/10/2009)

"Mother's day, my son handed me a dozen red roses and a beautiful Christian card my husband and son had chosen. The flowers were wrapped in a yellow scarf similar to the one I have tied to my door knob, awaiting my spouse's return. My prayer that morning was for the Lord to reveal if my spouse's heart is softening. Praise You Jesus." (Illinois)

“A praise! My daughter wrote a long e-mail this morning explaining her finding peace with our Lord! We had not been in communication for some time following the death of her father. She asked if we could work on restoring our relationship! Thanks be to God for His faithfulness!”  (Colorado) (posted 11/25/2014)
’And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.’ 2 Corinthians 9:8.  I was the prodigal and now the stander. My sin has been damaging but praise God: HE has forgiven me, I have safe housing, all my needs met, my children and wife are safe, my attorney prays and stands with me, God led me to this site, He gave me a job, He is teaching me, delivering me, loving me and making me into the husband and father they need and want. Because He loves me I will NEVER give up. LOVE YOU JESUS!”  (Arizona)  (posted 9/13/2011)
“My husband has been home for several months! Praise God, only He could have made it happen! God changed his heart. Please standers, believe that prodigals do come back and stay home. Our marriage has been better than ever and God is now the center of it all! My husband is growing spiritually and I’ve learned to zip my lips. It was impossible, but God came down and made it possible. Trust Him only! As I was reading my Bible tonight I went to Jeremiah 24:6-7 and I had dated the day that the Lord gave me that Word. It was the day before my husband asked to come back home. I had no clue he was coming back, he had given me no signs. But I believed and claimed that promise to my family. And the Lord is restoring a double portion! Believe! Let go and let God! He is the God of the impossible and He will not give His glory to another!” (Florida) (posted 9/19/2014)
"I received a message from my spouse telling me to stop sending correspondence about our daughter. He blames me for the lack of communication between them and wants nothing more to do with us. I cried out to God because of the hurt. In the beginning of my stand I dreamed about remarrying in Hawaii. While cleaning out old emails last night I found two emails from trips to Hawaii. I immediately felt peace. When all seemed so hopeless, God reassured me that He had not forgotten His promise to restore twice as much as what was lost. I'm so thankful to my Heavenly Father for His faithfulness." (Delaware) (posted 1/10/2011)

"WOW! God has done a work in both my husband and me. He was only gone for a short time and returned home suddenly. Since he moved out of state, when he headed back (he said he did not know why he came home), I was prepared for him to make other living arrangements once he arrived. God worked out my spouse's visit to a Christian counselor (he didn't know why he actually went to the session) and within 48 hours of his return, we were completely reconciled and our marriage is better than it has ever been! He now knows that God worked it all out! Thank you Rejoice Marriage Ministries! Praise God forever!” (Texas)

“PTL! I have been standing for my marriage for some time now, living with my in-house prodigal husband. I can’t tell you how hard this stand has been especially seeing my husband doing things that constantly hurt and frustrate me… but GOD. He told me to be patient and wait on Him and I have been seeing my prayers answered one by one. I witnessed my husband read the Bible for the first time in many years and this weekend, at my brother’s wedding, my husband was wearing his wedding band, something he hasn’t done in a long time. He was very loving, caring and affectionate towards me. He even embraced me and kissed me while taking pictures. I know that God is softening my husband’s heart and working it out and all I have to do is be still.”  (Florida) (posted 4/14/2015)
“We were remarried this past Saturday! The divorce was final 21 months ago, but God is faithful. He gave me Micah 7:7 (KJV) as my standing verse. Therefore I will look unto the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me. Then later Ezekiel 12:28 (KJV) when we were close to restoration. Therefore say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; There shall none of my words be prolonged any more, but the word which I have spoken shall be done, saith the Lord God.”  (Texas) (posted 12/29/2014)
“I want to take this time and say thank you to Jesus and RMM for the love and support that I have received during this season of my life. On December 17, 2013 I officially became homeless. The week leading up to this, I was a train wreck; I was scared, began screaming both internally and externally, I started blaming myself and I was full of anger and fear. I even questioned my salvation, and God's love for me. Now, that's scary! But GOD! I received a Christmas card and I didn't feel like opening it. I waited a whole day! When I opened it, there was a love letter from God and inside this love letter was a check! It's not about the money, but to me it was a sign from God. So many people don't understand why I am praying for my marriage; I ask God all the time. This blessing forever touched my heart. I am so thankful. I've lost almost everything - BUT GOD!”  (Louisiana) (posted 12/29/2013)

"My marriage was hopeless, dead as could be. But God. My spouse, who was breathing fiery threat, is now the sweetest supportive mate. We are building a beautiful home, and I am going to graduate school, a lifelong dream."  (New York)

(posted 3/7/2008)
“I am so thankful to our Lord and Savior! He is so faithful to His Words of peace and promises in the midst of our storms. ’Greater is He that is in me than he that is in this world.’ I faced my greatest fear of seeing my husband with the non-covenant wife and instead of it being a horrible event, the peace of God and His presence gave me victory! I attended my husband’s step-mother’s funeral and was embraced by my father-in-law and all of my in-laws, as well as my husband. The Lord strengthened me to initiate contact with and acknowledge the non-covenant with a hug..something I didn’t plan to do until I did it! My son, daughter-in law and grandson prayed I would be alluring to my husband and God was so faithful to answer that prayer! God is faithful and is working on the other side of the mountain when we see nothing! NEVER give up!”  (Oklahoma) (posted 8/31/2014)
"Praise be to God! It has been almost a month since my husband suddenly came home, right before Thanksgiving. It had been almost two years to the day since he said he didn't love me anymore and left. Just as quickly he said he was ready to come home. This was a total surprise to me. Just three months prior he had filed for divorce and had repeatedly told me he would never come home. How great is our God. Thanks so much to the wisdom of Charlyne and Bob and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. My stand will never end, because what was meant for evil is for the salvation of many. Our God reigns!" (New Mexico) (posted 1/28/2011)
"For some days now I have been standing for my marriage and salvation of my ex-spouse. One day I woke up and all day I kept praying to the Lord asking, "Please Lord let him call today and and allow the Holy Spirit to touch him." For some reason I kept looking at my phone ALL day and I just couldn't let it out of my sight. Then that evening I was just about to pick up my Bible to begin reading when my phone rang. It was my ex-spouse! The whole time I was speaking with him I was praising the Lord. I even was able to tell my ex-spouse about standing for us and how I prayed for him and the Lord answered my prayer. The Lord has the best timing indeed. May the Lord bless you and your families as He has me. Praise the Lord!"  (Florida) (posted 9/3/2012)
"This past Thursday was our day to go to court. I asked God to give me a sign He was working in my family and my prodigal coming home. Tuesday I asked God to cancel the court date. Late Wednesday I received a call that our case has been postponed. Praise God, He is working." (Alabama) (posted 7/3/2009)
“Praise God! I asked RMM to pray for my healing from chest pains that I have been suffering with. I have been healed from the chest pains.”  (Dominica) (posted 12/29/2014)
“I posted a testimony of the Lord blessing us with a new baby after marriage restoration, and last week I posted a prayer request because the doctor had suspected a partial molar pregnancy. Today we had another ultrasound and baby is perfect and has a heart beat! My husband and I were in tears, and we just praise the Lord for taking care of us! Thank You God for another blessing that is beyond words!”  (Massachusetts) (posted 11/3/2014)
“On the day my beloved spouse left me the Lord gave me Jeremiah 29:10-14. It was only much later when I read it again I realized what He was telling me. In those few words He not only confirmed that He had plans to prosper us and not to harm us but His word also says three times that He will bring my spouse back. There have been so many miracles and signs along this journey that I have no doubt anymore that our amazing Father will do as He says and that His Word will accomplish what it was sent out to do. He is a father of miracles who wants to spoil us with abundant blessings. We just need to have faith and stand strong until the end. Don’t give up fellow standers. Just stand through it all no matter what. God will strengthen us.”  (South Africa) (posted 7/31/2014)
“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)  (posted 8/27/2011)
"I had wandered some from my stand recently. I was reading my Bible and praying but my heart wasn't in it. I knew was I supposed to do but didn't want to do it any more. God wouldn't let me just give up that easy. I got my divorce papers and I knew I had taken my eyes off the Lord. Now I know God wants me to stand firm. I thank God I am back on track." (North Carolina) (posted 9/18/2009)
“I'd been struggling without a job, supported by my parents who are already in debt. Conversations with my spouse were terribly strained due to finances. BUT GOD! God asked a friend at church to forward a government job application to me while my spouse and I were living in his far country during a brief reconciliation. I got appointed and the Lord’s hand was on each step of it! Great pay, good timing, a daycare for the baby. Jesus turned me from a burden to a blessing for my parents! The Lord has been softening my prodigal's heart. He may come to meet the baby this month. I’m so humbled and thankful. My Potter is shaping me and my life. Thank You Jesus!”  (India)  (posted 12/17/2012)
“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)  (posted 1/10/2012)
“I am so thankful for RMM and for the Lord Jesus having me stand in the gap for my marriage. I spoke to my husband today. He is engaged and trying to get married. When I asked if they set a date, he stated things are in the way right now. Praise the Lord! I am standing in the gap, that my husband will move back home and we will remarry. The Lord has me loving my husband in a way I could not before because God has shown me how to love him.”  (Minnesota)   (posted 8/23/2011)

“My  prodigal came for a visit to help me with our son. I didn't expect much from this Valentine's Day. But God! My husband apologized for his abandonment; he admitted to missing me. God allowed me to share the truth about marriage and divorce with him. Before leaving he promised to listen for God about coming home. I know God has been speaking to him since day one. God's victory is near. I have faith! Praise God!”  (Florida)  (posted 2/24/2013)

“Our Lord moves mountains, PTL. After a year and a half separation, my prodigal is home. The devil led him astray and he hardened his heart and ears to the Lord. The Lord promises us that His Words do not return void. The Lord finds his lost sheep and while I let go and let God, always in prayer, God also found me and rebuilt me. Then He opened my husband's ears and softened his heart and showed him the deception that Satan had blinded him with. Our God is an amazing God. Praise and glory to Him. Never give up. Allow God to move the mountain and fill your heart and your prodigal’s because what He did for me He'll do for you. Amen.”  (Florida)

“The Lord is amazing! Never had I imagined my husband would come home after all of the things that had happened but he is home! After receiving daily devotionals I grew so strong in the Lord and prayed on my knees for forgiveness of making this mess myself and asking for a second chance. The Lord did just that. My husband was coming to spend weekends with me anyway but this time he didn't leave. He is back home. There still are some rough patches to seal and work to do in us both. However, I have learned that putting the Lord first and in the middle of our marriage in our household, the Lord will hold our family together like never before. Before I took it for granted and I didn't put Him first. Now I know and now I am grateful for what is right in front of me and I will praise Him every minute of the day!”  (Ohio)

"God answers prayer. I asked to know if my husband was all right due to having no contact and I needed him to put house payment money into the account. My husband sent me an email. He also put the money in the bank. God showed me that my prayers are being heard." (Mississippi) (posted 1/16/2009)
“The Lord is faithful. My spouse and I have been living separate lives under one roof. We were sleeping in separate bedrooms but I had faith in the God who says in His Word He hates divorce. My husband had gone to the lawyer and wanted a divorce before end of December. Instead, one morning he woke me up saying he is sorry and wants a fresh start. God is great and I know with Him by our side, happiness will be restored in our home and family. God is faithful, just hold to His Word.”  (Zimbabwe) (posted 1/12/2015)
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)
“My husband and I were separated for some time. He was living with another woman, involved with a second woman, and also involved in illegal activities. I stood for my marriage and continued to pray for my husband and the other women. First and foremost, I prayed for my husband’s salvation. About a week ago my husband asked to meet me so we could talk. He confessed and apologized for all of his wrongs. He told me he wanted to come home and get saved. All things through God are possible. I praise and thank God every day.”  (New York) (posted 12/11/2014)
"My church held a worship music workshop. We all had to select a percussion instrument. I chose a shaker, then the visiting teacher came over to me and said that one comes in pairs, handing me another identical shaker. Later that night I realized the Lord had used this Godly teacher to send me His message of encouragement that two who are meant to be together cannot be separated." (United Kingdom) (posted 2/12/2010)
"Praise God for the hedge of protection. My youngest daughter was on a long distance trip and started having car problems. She was able to get to her destination without being stranded. The next day, my oldest daughter was in an accident. Although her car is a mess, she was not hurt badly. Thank You God." (Florida) (posted 8/14/2009)
"I have been extremely stressed. I have so much to do and not enough energy to get it done. I have been praying that God would fill my soul and give me peace. This afternoon I sat down and read Charlyne Cares, 'Are You Stressed Out? - Seek God's Perfect Peace.' It was just the message I needed to hear. I felt peace come over me. Thank You, Lord for speaking to me through Charlyne." (Arkansas) (posted 3/19/2010)
“My wife left and began another relationship. I have been praying Hosea 2:6-7 and that God would separate the adulterous relationship. Well praise God! While speaking to my wife the other day she mentioned that she has now broken up the relationship. Praise God that He hears and answers our prayers.”  (Australia)  (posted 1/22/2013)
“As for you, go your way till the end. You will rest, and then at the end of the days you will rise to receive your allotted inheritance.”  Daniel 12:13  (posted 6/15/2012)
“I prayed for a sign to continue my stand although we are now divorced. I was feeling like I needed strength to continue my stand or to end it. As I was driving down the interstate I looked to my left and there it was, a Covenant Transport truck, I knew I had to continue on. God still speaks, but are we listening?”  (Texas) (posted 3/11/2012)
"Yesterday I was astonished when my husband told me my hair looked nice, when for years he has only said unkind words to me. I thank God. I have asked for love like His for my husband." (California) (posted 8/8/2008)
“I am praising God. This past Thanksgiving my prodigal spouse planned to have our son meet his daughter by a live-in non-covenant. Glory to God, not only did God cancel the trip out of state for my son, but he arranged for my spouse to come to our state for Thanksgiving and stay with us for the entire weekend. God also removed the non-covenant person from the home. So keep standing and believing. God is a God of miracles, signs and wonders. I believe in not many days hence we will be reconciled, vows renewed, for we are married according to the Word of God. God is a restorer of the years that were stolen to divorce! May God restore, rebuild, reconcile and deliver every prodigal to repent and accept Jesus as their Savior this Christmas. I know God is still performing miracles. I pray for the joy of the Lord to be your strength. God Bless!”  (North Carolina) (posted 12/29/2014)
"I was sad because I was going to have to sell my engagement and wedding rings to pay for my part of the divorce. I asked the Lord if there was any other way to pay this without selling my rings. Two days later my prodigal called to say we received a tax return, which we were ordered to split. It even paid the remaining balance of my lawyer's bill. Praise God. What provision and a sign from Heaven to keep standing. Though it looks grim I have no doubt from God that my prodigal is coming home." (Michigan) (posted 4/9/2010)
“Glory be to God! My spouse has come home from the far country. Standers, keep praying, believing and watch how God opens doors! When I completely surrendered my life over to our Savior, He worked it out. I’m praying for all standers and prodigals, all over the world. If God said He would do it, then it will be done. Don’t ever give up on God, or your prodigals!”  (Tennessee) (posted 12/16/2014)
“I just want to express how AMAZING God is. My husband and I are going through the process of restoration in our marriage and I have been standing on God's Word. Until now I had never seen or asked God to send a Covenant Transport truck my way. Yet after today I am a witness that I have seen one and it came at the right time. I was hurting inside and as I was talking to my sister about my issues, I looked up and there was a Covenant Transport truck passing my way. I just began to praise God and the conversation turned into glorifying God. So AMAZING! I will forever stand on the Word of God and His promises! Thank You Jesus!”  (South Carolina) (posted 8/1/2013)
"My prodigal wife brought the other man to an event of our daughters. This hurt me very badly. I went home crying out to God. A lifetime friend showed up and saw the immense pain I was going through." (Tennessee) (posted 5/7/2010)
