"Two years ago my husband came home and repented for everything that he had done. Today we are still together and he and I minister the Word of God. God is now using my hurt to heal others. Praise God."   (Louisiana)

“PTL! After months of prayer my marriage is being restored! I am so thankful to God for the changes that I am seeing in my husband, our family, and myself. With God anything is possible no matter how hopeless a situation may seem. Let God take control of all areas of your life and you will receive blessings that are better than what you could imagine in His perfect timing!”  (Georgia) 
"I prayed to God the other night and asked Him why He can’t send me a sign like other people get. I prayed He would show me my prayers and fasting were working. When I woke up the next morning, I looked at my daily newsletter and the words 'Everything I am seeking is on its way to me' jumped off the page. I cried and thanked the Lord. My prayers are working." (North Carolina)
Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy. He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him. Psalm 126:5-6
“My husband was in the far country for many months. He has now been back home for over nine months and I am so grateful! We are standing firm together while still facing financial difficulties and issues with work. After a hard day at work, tonight my husband took me out for coffee and it was so good to be able to sit and talk. I have been able to share my stand with an old friend who is also separated from her husband. My prayers are with her and all standers. Do not let other people dissuade you in your stand as a counselor tried to dissuade me. But Moses answered the people, ‘Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again.’ Exodus 14:13.  (Australia)

My husband came home seven months ago. He was in a non-covenant relationship. God revealed to me that He would force him home. That’s just what happened when the other woman threw him out. God is still working on healing our marriage, but He has promised me that my husband is home to stay. I am believing that God will heal and make this marriage better that I can imagine. God does heal hurting marriages. I praise and thank him for all He has done, and is still doing." (California)

"My prodigal has been home for a week, sleeping on the couch. He has not yet committed to working on our marriage but said he doesn't have plans to go anywhere. Praise God he brought my husband home under the cover of my prayers." (North Carolina)

“My mother was a special woman of God. She was a prayer warrior, and stood solid in Jesus. She taught her children how to pray and touch the throne of God. When my mother went to be with Jesus 10 years ago, I thought my world had ended. God had a plan. Not only did we siblings now have to serve God on our own, but we had to be the ones to pray, and intercede. We couldn't rely on mom anymore to do the praying for us. (Even though we would pray, we didn't pray as much as we should because we knew mom was praying.) She had been my mentor. I lost my best friend, but I also thank God that He gave her to me to show me how to be that faithful Christian, and how to pray and to walk the right path through her example. Thank You, Jesus for my living example who taught me how to pray and care for her family, and not allowing certain things in her home. I am that stronger Christian since she left. If I didn't know how to pray, I wouldn't have made it this far in my marriage restoration.”  Happy Mother’s Day  (California)

Those who oppose him he must gently instruct, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will. 2 Timothy 2:25-26
"My husband came home this past September in obedience to God. God still has a lot of healing to do in our relationship and I am still standing for the restoration of our marriage. (At Christmas) all four of us were in church together in over 18 months. God does answer prayer!"

 "The Lord brought my husband home. The experience changed me. The Lord guided me and encouraged me every step of the way. There were many times I felt like the loneliest person on earth, but The Lord pulled me through. There were so many things I am grateful that I didn't see or know about. I followed the advice to keep my eyes on the Lord. Satan distorts everything so I just believed what the Lord told me." (Arizona)

"I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ." Ephesians 3:16-18
“My husband and I have been separated for almost a year and there have been times when I just want to quit. This last week I asked God to give me a signal that He is working on my marriage. I asked the Holy Spirit to speak to my husband through dreams, memories songs, people. And praise be to the Lord! He answered me today. I just got two texts from my husband saying that he had a beautiful dream about us that made him feel full and happy and that there might be hope for us. All the glory to God for He is good and faithful. He literally is moving mountains and opening the sea so I can cross through it. Don't stop praying! He answers every single one on our requests, even the smallest ones.”  (Ecuador) 
“The Lord gave me a wonderful dream letting me know that soon my husband will be back from the far country. He also confirmed the dream with a scripture in Romans 13:12: The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.Alleluia! I am preparing everything for his comeback. PTL!”  (Puerto Rico)
"But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance." II Peter 3:8-9
"And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:19
"My husband was involved with drugs and another woman and I wanted out. I began to pray for him. Months later he showed up at my door asking for help. Later he was accepted into Teen Challenge where he has been in recent months. God is restoring our marriage with Him as our rock. He is taking back what satan tried to steal." (Kansas)
“Thank you Rejoice Marriage Ministries for all the encouragement. I am proud to say I see God really moving in my marriage. The struggle has been long and the way from time to time has been hard-BUT GOD! Standers, don't give up. Stay in right standing with God and stay prayerful. Much prayer equals much power.”  (Florida)
“A friend gave me a prayer to pray for our marriage. Five minutes later, I passed a sign that said, ‘God reads knee mail.’ When I said the prayer, I got on my knees. I said I would follow God's way, and to give me wisdom and protect me from being a fool. I asked for confirmation on whether to continue being faithful to my civil marriage or go the way of the world. Within two hours, a car in front of me had a license plate that shouted, ‘HIS WAY1.’ The next day, a moving truck pushed in front of me as I listened to a Rejoice CD. On the back of the truck I read for miles ‘Been there, Moved that.’ Another truck in front of me read, ‘The cleaning team.’ God was telling me he was working on the other side of the mountain and to keep on His path of standing and faith in His way! Thank God!”  (California)
For the first time in eight years my wife spent Mother's Day here at our home. Our four children and two grandsons were here. She said it was her best Mother's Day ever. This is a breakthrough that only the Lord could have done."  (New York
“God has been doing SO MUCH in my life and between me and my husband. But I failed to give Him the glory because it’s not the BIG testimony. I'm sorry Lord. You deserve so much glory for each little thing you do for me. The Lord is so mindful of us. My husband’s heart has softened and changed so drastically. I KNOW my miracle is right around the corner. Second, thank You Lord for hearing my prayer. My constant prayer lately is Lord give us testimony upon testimony like never before. Prayer answered! ‘We have received the most testimonies this week than any other week in our ministry.’”  (Georgia)

“For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.” Habakkuk 2:3 

"I was crying out to the Lord that I needed a part time job so that I can pay my bills and still take my daughters to and from school. Within five minutes my friend called and asked if I could work for her part time. When I feel like there is no hope, God shows up. I praise Him." (Texas)

"I give thanks to the Lord. My husband's attitude toward our marriage changed. He returned home a month ago and we have been very happy enjoying every minute of it. He is doing his best to make everything right again. I know I must continue looking to the Lord for help. The battle is not our, but the Lord's. God answers prayer."  (Florida)

"I gave up, thinking this is enough and divorced my husband. Since then, I found "Charlyne Cares" and discovered that God is a God of not only second chances but third and fourth. I will continue to watch how God will put this marriage together in spite of me and my circumstances." (Texas)
“Just as our local power company took time to restore the power to our home after Hurricane Wilma, so did God take his time to restore my marriage. The power company needed to make sure that everything was fixed and all the connections were intact. Then they needed to make sure that other people around us were ready. They needed to make sure that everything was 100% before they threw that switch, so that the power did not just flicker and then go off again, but comes on and stays on for good. This is how God has restored my marriage to my wife. After being separated for two years, we are finally restored. God will restore your marriage. If you try to do it yourself, your restoration will only be a 'flicker.' Let God do it. He knows what He is doing and He will do it right so that your family's restoration brings permanent 'light' to your home." (Florida) (From a man who attends Rejoice Pompano.)
"So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it." Isaiah 54:11
“My husband went on vacation with the OW to a place that was very special to us. It has been hard on me since I found out, but in the midst of the pain I can raise my hands to worship to God who already has it worked out. God confirmed for me through His Word that restoration is coming. This morning I asked the Lord to speak to my heart and I opened the Word to Jeremiah 30. The title of the chapter is ‘A Promise for Restoration.’ It spoke about how even though the Israelites would endure pain, God would restore them and they would be an example to other nations of His redeeming love. Take heart dear standers, even when we are tired in our journey God strengthens us and keeps our feet strong to stand and doesn't waste one minute of pain. Don't give up, I'm not. Be blessed with the peace that surpasses all understanding.”  (Maryland) 
“I just got home from a Mother’s Day dinner with my husband. I know it is just a start but I am so thankful to God for tonight.”  (New York)
"I praise the Lord that my husband is now home! God will finish what He starts. My husband told me that he is going to finish his course (School of Ministry) and he is going back to school in September! Praise the Lord. He is truly faithful." (California)
"My divorce was final a month ago. Last year we made plans to go to Florida for spring break and my prodigal went with us to help drive. He stayed with some friends at night, but was with us during the day. Today he called. He wants to start working as friends. He said he would cancel our property settlement agreement for now. Praise God for working on my husband’s heart." (Kentucky)
“Yesterday, my oldest son and I had a heart-to-heart talk about life, covenant marriage, how God works and IS working, and about my wife, his mother. I love hearing my son's thoughts and ideas and his conversation about seeking the Lord. It hasn't been like this, recently, but God is moving and transforming hearts and lives. The enemy will not have my family. God has given promise after promise. Praise His Holy Name!”  (Washington) 
“My husband took a trip out of the country with my son and mother-in-law. They did not return as expected and communication is limited in that area. This went on a several days with no communication. Other family was trying to help me reach them with no result. I was praying for God to keep them safe. They made it home safe. I learned they had tried to leave three days in a row only to have car trouble each day. After they made it finally, they found out gun fire had broken out in an area they had to travel through. I told my husband God was watching over him, keeping him safe by causing the car trouble. Praise God! ‘For I know the plans I have for you – they are plans for good and not disaster to give you a future and hope.’  Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT)  (Texas)

"My husband has suddenly come home. He apologized for how bad he treated me and the children. He says he sees a change in me and that I am glowing. I told him that is the Holy Spirit."  (Florida)

“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) 
Record my lament; list my tears on your scroll - are they not in your record? Then my enemies will turn back when I call for help. By this I will know that God is for me. In God, whose word I praise, in the LORD, whose word I praise -  in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?   Psalm 56:8-11

"God does heal hurting marriages. My husband is not only home in our house but today he came home to our God." (California)

“The Lord brought me to this site over the summer while I was battling stage three cancer, and experiencing the worst season of my marriage. This website has provided so much encouragement and support to me and others. Today after reading the daily devotional, I played Mr. Steinkamp’s home going service. It was so wonderful. I heard the testimony from the woman with lymphoma, and how God healed her marriage and her body! That was EXACTLY what I needed to hear today! I am in remission, praise God, but still waiting for the complete healing in my marriage - my suddenly. But I must remember God is moving, and on the case.”  (Pennsylvania)  
“I give God all praise and glory! My wife is coming home this Saturday. It’s amazing how much God loves us and He will give you the desires of your heart. I thank RMM for helping me to stand and encouraging me to never give up. It's a blessing how this ministry is touching people's lives all over the world. I will continue to stand and pray for other hurting marriages forever. There is hope in Jesus Christ. Please, I ask all other standers to never give up. Luke 1:37For with God nothing shall be impossible.God bless you all.”  (Texas) 
"After several months of little contact with my husband, God opened up an opportunity where we had to communicate. He softened his heart so much that we spent last weekend together out of town. We had such a wonderful weekend of sharing our hearts and thoughts. God is faithful." (Kansas)

"My wife and I are recently separated. She wants divorce at any cost. I was the main problem in our marriage. I was away from God from a long time and didn’t take responsibility for my family. I started praying for my family and my wife is now ready to work on our marriage." (India)
“I have been standing off and on since my wife left me. I have not seen her at all for quite some time. I would send texts for holidays to which I would not even get a reply. This past Thanksgiving was different. She said I was crazy for waiting for her but she liked it. She texted me (suddenly) and out of the blue to tell me she was going to go to a church. Over the last several days we have been talking every night and the Lord has opened this door. The healing is beginning. Thank You Jesus. My stand is not perfect. I have fallen and gotten skinned up. I threw in the towel a couple times, yet leaped to catch that towel in mid-flight. Thank You to the strong brothers and sisters encouraging me and praying for us. This is the strength of the Lord, not mine. Thank You Lord.”  (California) 
"You are my portion, O LORD; I have promised to obey your words. I have sought your face with all my heart; be gracious to me according to your promise. I have considered my ways and have turned my steps to your statutes." Psalm 119:57-59
“Praise God! His works are awesome! A week ago, I visited with my lawyer. He said my spouse's lawyer had recently called about another case, but asked about our upcoming case. When my spouse's lawyer asked how long my spouse should really be expected to stay married to me, my lawyer replied, ‘Well, I suppose until death do they part, since that's what he (my spouse) said they would do.’ I love it! A divorce lawyer that stands with me!! Only God!”  (Arkansas)
"I had been utilizing tough love with my husband. I felt the Holy Spirit leading me to humble myself before my husband. I gave up the tough love stance and broke down in front of my husband. I cried a confession of my love for him and the sorrow in my heart. That is when he began to show me love in return. Our communication has been better ever since. God is working a miracle in my heart and I trust Him for the restoration of my marriage." (Texas)
“I have been most encouraged to read in Restored Marriages of a couple remarried after nine years of separation and divorce. It has re-affirmed my resolve that no matter how I'm feeling, no matter what my spouse does, says or does not say, I am and will be living within the covenant of our marriage. To God be the glory, great things He has done. The ransomed of the Lord will return... Isaiah 51:11.”  (England)
"I woke up the other morning with the wind howling outside. We went to bed thinking our furnace had stopped working, but when I woke up I started praising God for a warm bed, having my husband next to me and a warm house. When I looked at the thermostat the temperature said 64 degrees. I touched the furnace and it came on. Praise God for healing my furnace." (Oregon)
"My husband and I have been divorced a few years and we live in two different states. We still talk to one another and the good Lord is really softening his spirit. I still love him.
