"Hi Guys, just a quick but impactful note. Last week, while at a Women's Conference, my wife (prodigal) heard from the Lord during a worship service, in her words, 'So clearly it was as if He was standing in front of me to restore your marriage.' Hallelujah! Our Lord is so good. Suddenly, her heart was in one place on Friday, BUT GOD turned it on Saturday!  She repented last Saturday. The next day, Sunday, at a church she was visiting, an itinerant pastor called out a sin she has been struggling with, specifically, in a congregation of 50 or so. So, unfamiliar church, unknown pastor, spoke a specific word for her! God is healing, working, restoring. Please pray that the Lord (He will, but I still need prayer) will bring full brokeness for all of us, and allow Him to rebuild what the locusts have eaten. Joel 2:25."  (Washington)
"I have had the enemy come against me about my job during my stand. My company has laid off lots of people with more layoffs to come, but I found out yesterday the funding for my job has been secured not just for the rest of this year but for next year too. God has blessed me more than I ever dreamed and I will not doubt His plan to restore my marriage. Thank You, God for always being faithful."  (Texas) 
"God's timing is perfect. This morning I was feeling anxious. I returned to the room where http://StopDivorceRadio.org was playing on my computer. The broadcast was of the teleconference in which I had taken part. At that time I was facing a divorce hearing that ended up being delayed, and then another one was delayed after that. What a great reminder of God's might and His grace to me. God will take care of me, my family and my marriage." (California)
“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) 

"If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land."   2 Chronicles 7:14

“My husband and I have been separated for several months. He is convinced that God wants us to divorce. We do missions work in Mexico. I have been in Canada winning the fight against cancer since we separated. He has not been here and hasn't seen the need to be here since he believes God wants us to divorce. The other day I received an email from our pastor saying that my husband is coming to Canada to work on healing for himself. Praise the Lord! Praying his eyes will be opened to God's truth! He is a man who fears the Lord, but has been blinded by the enemy. God is able!” (Canada) 
"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
"My prodigal was admitted to the hospital. It was on my heart to go see him and pray for him. The other person was by his bedside. Praying beforehand God gave me the grace to walk in the Spirit and be loving and kind to both of them. I praise God for the work He is doing in me." (California)
For the man who was miraculously healed was over forty years old.  Acts 4:22 

"The Lord has kept His promise. He continually showed me that my marriage would be restored. Before the Christmas holidays the Lord did just that. Now my wife and I are planning our remarriage celebration. Thank You Lord for keeping Your promise!" (Texas)

But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble. O my Strength, I sing praise to you; you, O God, are my fortress, my loving God.  Psalm 59:16-17
Last year I committed to a Beth Moore program to memorize 2 scriptures each month. In February my husband of 30 years left. I was ready to give up on my marriage, But God had other plans. He brought me to RMM in April, and I have been a Stander since. At times it is difficult, however, I know that God is working His plan to restore my marriage. In the mean time, He is changing me and molding me into the person He intended me to be. I am spending more time in His Word, and memorizing so many scriptures. I grew up in church, so I knew the jest of many scriptures, but I know so many more now, and can correctly quote them! I am truly hiding His Word in my heart. God's word is a great comfort to me and His promises and truths are the only things helping me get through each day. (Texas)
“I'm rejoicing and in great awe at the power of God and how He is moving in my marriage. I had posted my court hearing date for prayer. It was scheduled for yesterday but it did not take place. When my prodigal filed for divorce I was disturbed but God told me to trust him to stop the divorce and reconcile us instead. In His own way, God brought confusion on my prodigal's side and the hearing was adjourned for the second time. God also gave me an opportunity to share with my prodigal's lawyer about my stand and how I'm believing God to fight for my marriage.Revelation 12:11: ‘They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death. I want to encourage my fellow standers that nothing is too hard for God to resolve in your marriage. Jeremiah 32:17:‘Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you. Praise God!”  (Uganda) 
"My wife has returned home and will remarry me shortly. Bob and Charlyne were a huge part of this reconciliation. Through the website, tapes and emails, your encouragement and testimonies helped me reconcile with my wife. Thank you again so very much." (New York)
“I feel moved by the Holy Spirit to write the rest of my testimony from last week. I am the one who saw my husband at a mutual event even though we live far away from each other. As it turned out, the next morning I went to church with my sweet parents and my mom sang in the choir. The whole message was about STANDING and putting on the armor of God. My mom and I were weeping at God's goodness to speak. It was a confirmation that I did what was right and left the future in God's hands instead of looking for my husband. I know my restoration is coming soon. Thank You, God, for your goodness.”  (Arizona) 
“My husband has returned home. He returned home suddenly, just as Charlyne tells us so often happens. Miracles really are just around the corner. The times I felt the most discouraged were within the last few weeks. (Husband) said the story about being greener on the other side of the fence is just not true. He told me he is pleased I have continued to attend church and Bible study. We are communicating like we never have before. God has blessed us in so many ways. He is an awesome God.” (New York)
"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)
"My prodigal came home 6 years ago. This week he turned to the Lord asking Jesus to be his Lord and Savior. Thanks be to the Lord for never giving up on my prodigal or any of us." (Oklahoma)
“God has been faithful to show me over and over again that my husband is coming home. I've stayed pure and drawn so close to the Lord that He shows me signs of His love on a daily basis. One incredibly awesome thing that He's done is give me an anticipation for Thanksgiving and Christmas that I can't explain! I have been so joyful this holiday season! In fact, it's the most joyful that I ever remember being! I know that this time of year is particularly hard on standers because their loved one isn't with them and other things associated with this season can also cause pain, but just remember this season is not about us! We don't have to sit in sorrow during the holidays, it's a choice. If we just ask our Lord to be our joy, He will!”  (Florida) 
“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 58:12 
“All the glory goes to God. My husband came back after several grueling months. I read these testimonies, wishing and, at times, doubting that I would get the privilege to write one. But God! Throughout the storm, when my husband's heart was hardened, God found a way to bring him back to me with a soft heart. I'm so thankful, and these testimonies gave me strength when I had felt like giving up. Please don't give up, God hears your cries and will not hold back when the time is right. The Lord gave me Jeremiah 33:3 (KJV). Call onto me and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things that thou knowest notas well as Matthew 7:7 (KJV) Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. I will keep praying for restored marriages all around the world. Don't give up, He is faithful.”  (California)
“After submitting my testimony last week that I kept my cool after finding out my spouse was in a new relationship, Satan snuck in a little crack. I got the urge to drive by the woman's house (I know both God and Bob told me not to). While driving there on a two lane deserted highway, a big truck came roaring past me like a lion and passed me. It was a Covenant Transport truck! Needless to say God isn't done with me yet. And, yes, I turned around and went right home!”  (Florida) 
"My married is RESTORED! Praise God. Thank you for your daily encouragement. With GOD all things are possible. Keep up the good work. You have been a blessing to me." (Georgia)
"I have been praying for God's help. I am out of a job and divorced. Today I came home and my prodigal was there waiting. He said that he noticed the cabinets and fridge were empty. He asked me to get ready and we went to the grocery store. There he asked me to shop for anything I needed and he paid for it. At the cashier a lady approached him and gave him a booklet about the consequences of our sins and Jesus. He took me to the gas station and paid for gas for my car. God is working." (Pennsylvania)
"I woke up on my birthday not knowing what to expect. I wasn't sure if I would see my husband because his car isn't running. While praying I heard a car pull up in my driveway. It was my husband. He came to wish me a happy birthday. He gave me a kiss and told me he loved me. But to my surprise he returned on his lunch break to bring me a gift bag full of all the things I have been saying I wanted but didn't have the money. I am always amazed at how good my God is to me. To God be all the glory." (Georgia)
"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)
"The God we serve is mighty and holy. The Lord suddenly restored my marriage. I have learned a lot and have changed a lot. I am sure my husband is astounded at the changes in me. I am now standing for his salvation. God will do it for His Glory." (South Africa)
“I just want to thank You Jesus for everything You have done and are going to do for me and my family. I don't understand why things are not happening faster but I believe You have perfect timing. This time last year my husband was involved with someone else. Now he's back in our life spending time with his wife and son. Our marriage has not been restored yet but I believe God is rebuilding us on that solid rock. We spend every weekend together and it has been amazing how God is always on time. I will not give up on my husband. Thank You Jesus for giving me the strength to do Your will not mine. My God never fails me. When I am discouraged He gives me hope to hang on. Thank You for all your blessings and for making a way where I see no way. Nothing is impossible for my Lord.” (Virginia)  
"I invited my husband to have lunch with me. He canceled. I was discouraged and started reading Judges 13-16. After a couple of hours my husband called me to have a late lunch. It turned out to be great, praise the Lord. May He keep talking to my prodigal to turn to Him. God is working on the other side of the mountain." (Florida)

“I have been standing for many years now. At times I wanted quit, but God placed a loving conviction in my heart to stand, for my family and my husband’s soul. Friends and family, have said, ‘Let go and move on.’ I have had ministers tell me my husband ‘is just too far lost.’ I refuse to accept this. For several weeks the message of covering yourself in God's armor has repeatedly been before me. I realized it was God preparing for a battle. This week I received a letter from the Catholic Church (neither my husband nor I are Catholic) saying my husband has petitioned the Church to have our 20 year marriage annulled. Initially I was devastated. Then I realized, my husband must be going to church, and this letter was God's way of showing me. God has been preparing me to battle for my family, using nothing but the Word of God, and faith. I declare in the precious name of Jesus, Satan is not going to win this battle. Amen.”  (Oklahoma)

"My husband is back home after an affair. He strayed from the Lord and now is back. The devil had hold of my husband but God's pull was stronger. Praise God for healing our marriage. We are going to renew our wedding vows this Sunday. It feels so good to sit in church with my husband next to me. We pray together every day, something we never did before. Without your daily Charlyne Cares giving me hope, I probably wouldn't be typing this. Thank you Bob and Charlyne. I know I am one of the luckiest women on earth. My husband just told me he loved me second only to God." (Tennessee)

"Yesterday, after some time of being a stander for my wife, I told God, I wanted to give up the fight. I am powerless without His help, but today this is what I got: God gave Jehoshaphat this answer. 2 Chronicles 20:17 - "'You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord who is with you. Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out, for the Lord is with you.'" (Kentucky)
“I was invited to go visit a church with a friend to hear a special speaker. It’s the same church that my prodigal and the OW attend. Of course as soon as I walked in I spotted them together. I sat down and asked God did He really want me to continue to do this (stand)? I began to get discouraged and I asked God for strength. As I was praying, the second group of praise dancers began their performance and I just couldn't believe my ears. They danced to ‘It’s Not Over’ by Israel Houghton. This song is the exact song that I have been planning to walk down the aisle to on my wedding restoration day. This has been my song of hope throughout my stand. God is awesome! To all standers..’It’s not over, It’s not finished, it’s not ending, its only the beginning, when God is in it, ALL things are new!’ Stay encouraged and God bless!” (Kentucky)  
"My husband came home at the end of October. We have been going to counseling and working on our relationship. He has been great and loving. God is also healing me from the hurt and pain. My kids are so happy their father is home. They have been doing a lot better in school." (Oklahoma)
“I've been standing for only a few weeks. I have read numerous stories about people seeing the Covenant Transport truck. I live in Michigan and had never seen one. Last night I asked God to show me a sign that standing was the right thing to do and that He has been hearing my prayers. This morning driving to work I said the ultimate thing to prove to me that God hears my prayers would be for me to see a truck. Then I said I'll look for a different sign because I've never seen one or read any other testimonies about seeing one in Michigan. At that moment I looked up and saw the Covenant Transport truck. I was so shocked that I almost had to pull over to the side of the road. I just laughed out loud and said the God I serve is an awesome God. He never ceases to amaze me. He will do it for you if you just ask and believe. I can't wait to see what He does next and what He has in store for me and my spouse.”  (Michigan)
You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever.  Psalm 30:11-12 

“I cannot thank you enough for your website! My husband has decided to reconcile and come home. Thank You Jesus! Keep the faith and keep praying and reading. Each time I questioned my stand I would get a sign to continue even though family/friends were not supportive.”   (Virginia)

"All praise to God. It has been years (the day we signed the divorce papers) since my wife has contacted me in any way. After reading of other standers who have asked God to lead their prodigal to contact them, it seemed that God would have me do this also. Today I received an email from her. God is faithful. He's provided for my every need. I rejoice that we have such a marvelous and loving Savior." (Oregon)
“My beloved and I have been separated for a few years now and through some circumstances had a chance to eat lunch together and talk. He started talking divorce again but I was able to quote scripture about marriage, that God hates divorce and how we are one flesh to my husband. We had a three and a half hour conversation about ‘us’ and He asked me to email him these scriptures for him to see for himself. Thank You Jesus for moving my husband’s feet toward home every day!”  (Georgia)  
"I don’t know how many times I told God that I couldn’t do it any more. Every time He picked me up and carried me until I could again walk the road to marriage restoration. I am reminded of going through child birth. Many times I would tell the doctor that I needed to stop. It was just too hard. As soon as that precious baby was born I was grateful that I had not quit. Now instead of a baby, I have a precious new husband." (Oklahoma)
"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." Galatians 6:9
“God is more than wonderful! The OW was always writing me that my husband would divorce me and marry her. All the time God gave me Isaiah 54. After a few years of praying, fasting and waiting, God confirmed for me in many ways to go back to Mexico with my two little boys. ( We were living very alone in Germany). God opened in an awesome way all the doors in Mexico and three months later my husband left the OW and came to Mexico with us. His love for God is now greater than before and our marriage and his relationship with the kids is better than ever. God is faithful! Keep on praying, fasting and believing what God has already said. He will do it in His perfect timing.”  (Mexico)
"When my beloved left our marriage some years ago, our son left with her (Even though I am not his biological father, he has known me as his Dad since he was little). They dropped completely out of our lives for over a year. I told the children that no matter what she did, we would do what was right before God regarding their little brother. The children agreed to keep the door open and the light on. We have believed that there would come a day when he would again have the freedom to re-engage with me as father and them as brother and sisters. After many months of zero contact, I have seen him six times in the last month, largely around soccer and him wanting to spend time with our dog. Though my beloved is still in pursuit of greener pastures elsewhere, God is beginning to restore my relationship with my son. In other times, God used birds, a donkey, and a whale. Who would ever have imagined that God would use a dog to help bring a father and son back together? God be praised!”  (Colorado)

"Praise God that my husband spent Valentine's Day at home. He had decided to move to be with the other person. I have been praying and fasting for the Lord to touch his heart. I cried tears of joy when he gave me a beautiful bouquet. I had the pleasure of cooking a lovely dinner for the two of us." (England)

"How can I repay the LORD for all his goodness to me? I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the LORD. I will fulfill my vows to the LORD in the presence of all his people." Psalm 116:12-14
"For the first time in many weeks my husband took a phone call from me today. We had a pleasant conversation. God is so good. I know that He is working on the other side of my mountain and I can't wait to see what wonders He reveals." (Tennessee)

 

"After years of standing, the Lord has won this battle for me. My wife said that she thought I might like to take her out for a meal as she thought I might have a question to ask her. She wanted me to propose. We went ring shopping the next morning, found the perfect ring for her, and went out for a meal. I got down on one knee and proposed and she said yes. Praise the Lord. A wedding invitation will be in the post! All glory to God." (United Kingdom)

"My husband’s heart was hardened and things seemed hopeless. I gave up and asked Jesus to take away the love I had for him. Jesus never took it away and kept reminding me to walk by faith not by sight. After months, Jesus allowed our family to go on a trip together. I am witnessing the Holy Spirit turn my husband’s heart from stone to flesh and back to his family." (Florida)
"Although my husband and I see each other in church every week, we have not had communication since the divorce was finalized. After an inspiring message during this past midweek service I felt lead to reach out to him and see if he wanted to meet to talk over some things. Although he declined the invitation, I am encouraged because God has given me a glimpse of how He is dealing with my husband's heart and I'm happy I obeyed." (North Carolina)
