“God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?” Numbers 23:19 “When my husband told me he wanted a divorce, I was in disbelief. Immediately God began speaking to me. He sent me many signs, dreams, and encouraging situations to confirm to me that I will not be getting a divorce. I went online for encouragement when He led me to this ministry. I have since been standing. PTL, I finally see some changes in my husband this week. He went from mean and not speaking, to helping me with things around the house again. I look forward to the day when God’s full out glory is seen in our marriage. Keep standing! God loves you.” (Virginia)
“My son called telling me he was on his way home this morning with his dad. We have been apart on and off for years and I was hoping that God’s timing would be right, and my prodigal would come in. A miracle from God! Not only did he come in, but tasted the prime rib, and had beautiful flowers for me. He wished me Happy Thanksgiving. As he was leaving he started crying outside for five minutes before he left. All praise and honor goes to the Lord; it's all His doings. I zipped my lips.”  (California)

“PTL! After many months of separation, ignorance, and threats of divorce from my husband, out of the blue, he came to spend New Year’s Eve with me! We had an amazing conversation and I was pleased to hear that he had taken a look at and has begun to own up to his own wrongs through our marriage and was no longer solely blaming me! He told me that this was a positive move in the right direction for us and was very loving. My walk with Our Lord through this time has been life changing! Being an advocate of standing for my marriage had many looking at me as though I were crazy, but I followed exactly what the Lord has told me to do - to keep standing with love and kindness. My husband mentioned this great change in me and I can see how my walk with the Lord is inspiring him. The Lord kept asking me if I was ready this whole holiday season and I said "YES!" Now we are taking it slow and on the mend. I am giving the Lord all of His due glory!”  (Pennsylvania) 

“Praise God. I received a message through a stranger who stood and prayed with me. Keep standing and pray for my husband’s salvation. Next day on the way to church I was looking for a sign and even before I could complete my thought, a Covenant Transport truck passed by. Praise God. I will continue to stand -praying for my husband’s salvation so that our marriage can be resurrected and healed.”  (Texas) 
“It’s been many months of separation with me and my husband. At times I hurt so much I can hardly breath. But I don't get discouraged by that because God is still working. Just yesterday I had to call my husband about a legal matter and after we talked I told him, ‘We miss you,’ and he said, ‘I miss you all too, I won’t lie about it.’ Praise the Lord! He also said ‘IF’ we get back together,  instead of NEVER or false hope. He is coming to visit us next week so I pray my suddenly is then. Don’t give up. God is working even when you are still hurting. Praise the Lord!” (Arkansas)
“Praise the Lord God is moving. My husband was pushing this divorce and had a court date set before he told me. He was anxious to be done with it, but God moved somehow. Now he is holding it up. When we spoke a few weeks ago he asked if anything else would hinder it; before I thought, I answered it is in God's hands now. He may still answer, but to God be the glory for the delay! He is in control no matter what happens and I thank Him for building my testimony of His goodness! Lord, I acknowledge Your hand in the small miracles which add up to big miracles! Thank You Lord and I love You more each day!”  (Texas) 
"Tonight we attended a passion play/musical at a church in our area. After the play was over one of the pastors preached and had an altar call. My husband and son prayed to receive the Lord."  (New York) 
My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken. Psalm 62:1-2 

"Praise the Lord, my husband came home suddenly. He is being delivered from bondages. What Satan used to divide our marriage, God has used for the good." (Michigan)

"We were divorced, but I asked my husband to come back and he did. It is a miracle that he is back and we are a family again. God isn't finished with us yet and I covet your prayers." (Georgia)
"Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:12-13
She exclaimed to the king, “Everything I heard in my country about your achievements and wisdom is true! I didn’t believe what was said until I arrived here and saw it with my own eyes. In fact, I had not heard the half of your great wisdom! It is far beyond what I was told.”  2 Chronicles 9:5-6 (NLT) 

“Praise be to God! After several years of being separated and standing all this time believing God for a miracle, glory to God, my miracle is done. He wants to come home. Thank you, Holy Spirit for speaking through this ministry. I open my arms in praise because I know this was a miracle.”  (Dominican Republic) 

"Our divorce papers were filed with the court just days after our silver anniversary. I prayed for a sign that the Lord was continuing to work in my marriage. We met at the bank to divide accounts. As I pulled in I heard the worship song, "Waiting." I I again heard the same song immediately following my individual counseling appointment this week. I know that the Lord is telling me to be patient and wait for His perfect time, and I praise Him who makes all things possible." (Kentucky)
“PTL! My faith was wavering today even though it had only been a week since my last peek over the mountain. Today God re-confirmed my stand by my prodigal telling me that he and the OW were over. How amazing is our God? He is still working but to give me that peek at what He is doing is such a blessing. It strengthened my faith and gave me confirmation that I am on His path. I will continue to rebuild and strengthen my foundation while He works on my husband. I can't wait until the day we can share our restoration and reconciliation testimony. It will be an unbelievable story that only God could have made happen! All the Glory be to God.” (Arkansas)

"My husband and I were having problems. He met someone and decided to move to another state with her. I was devastated and did not want our marriage to end but divorced him after pressure from him and others. I was online one night and came across Rejoice Marriage Ministries. I really felt inspired and started praying for my husband and our marriage. I had some doubt because I had never heard of standing before, but every time I looked at the site, I knew to keep going. After months with no contact we started talking again and I am thrilled to say we are now getting remarried next week." (California)

“Praise God. He is working on the other side. God spoke to me and said that my husband was talking to Him. Praise You, Father! A lady from my church who doesn’t know much about my stand or that God spoke that to me, told me that God wanted me to know that my spouse was under conviction. I know that he will come back to God and me, in God's perfect timing. Glory, Glory, Glory to my Father in Heaven!” (South Carolina)
“This is for other men out there whose wife has left them. It is easy to fall into the trap of hatred, vengeance, and despair. Consumed by the loss of your spouse and the split of your children will break any man down, no matter how tough he is. Yet as an anointed fighter of the Lord, wear your armor of chivalry, bear the sword of truth, and do not give up on the wife of your youth. Remember, honorable men are tough to come by. Listen not to others, but your heart and the Word of the Supreme Commander. Take it from this US Marine. I remind myself of this daily as I stand patiently for the return of my wife.”  (South Dakota)  RMM says:  PTL!
"My prodigal is living and working overseas. We have had regular email contact. Through prayer I was guided to not send him anything for two weeks. It was exactly on the two week date that my husband wrote wondering why he hadn't heard from me. He said he liked hearing from me and not to be afraid to send messages. This is a sign his heart is softening. I am so grateful." (Wisconsin)
"Praise God, my husband stopped the court case that he filed against me. He wanted a lot of money from me for settlement of property. He was angry with me when he left. This is the first miracle that I have seen. My husband and his lawyer have been on my back for nearly a year. Now it has all stopped, God is at work, I wonder what He will do next?" (New Zealand)
"My husband told me to tear up the divorce papers! He still has not come home but I'm still praying. This has given me hope that I must remain in God's will. Don't you give up! Where there is love there is hope!" (Georgia)
"Since my husband returned home four months ago, Satan has attacked us relentlessly. However, Almighty God has won every battle for us. He has turned the bad into good every time. Thank you Charlyne and Bob for warning standers not to stop standing after our prodigals come home." (New York)
“Yesterday was my fourth anniversary. My husband took me to a nice dinner. Glory to God. He told me that he loves me. He will visit my church soon he said. Praise His Holy Name.”  (California) 
“'Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.’"  Philippians 4:6 NLT

"I was such a sinner and I destroyed my marriage. I've been asking God if standing is what He wants me to do, or am I kidding myself because I want my marriage restored? Why would God restore my marriage? I believe in God's word, but the enemy has been telling me how bad I was. Today I listened to The Battle for Your Mind and Thoughts, I cannot find the words to express how this teaching touched me. God answered my prayer. All the negative thoughts my mind has been trying to convince me, I didn't want to believe, but they kept coming forward. Your teaching covered each and every one and I mean every thought. I know that God is speaking to me and this is what He wants me to do and I have not one doubt left. The Lord has been answering my prayers but I could not accept that the answers were for me. I wanted so much to believe this was for me, but the doubt kept trying to take over my mind. If I had not listened to your teaching. I would had missed what the Lord wanted me to hear. Charlyne, you know how I feel." (Texas)

“Recently God has been doing great things. Despite divorce, my prodigal and I are staying under the same roof. I have had some bad times but the Father always brought me joy. Throughout this entire trial I have been trusting in Jesus and He has not failed me yet. I am encouraged to see this through to total restoration.”  (Florida)
“I want to share with my fellow standers a sign that our Lord gave me recently. I was on my way back from a business trip and stopped for a break in the cafe of a supermarket. Whilst there I noticed these words on the back of a sweatshirt being worn by a young man, ‘Pain is temporary. Victory is forever.’ Isn't that wonderful? A message for all us standers from our Lord Himself. The pain, hurt and turmoil of our stand for our marriage is but temporary. The victory of a restored marriage and a restored husband and wife is forever. It is for all eternity. Our spouse saved and back in their Father's arms and the everlasting testimony of a marriage restored by the persistence, determination and obedience of a faithful stander. Thank You, Father for that wonderful encouragement in the most unexpected place.”  (United Kingdom) 
“When you are brought before synagogues, rulers and authorities, do not worry about how you will defend yourselves or what you will say,for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say.” Luke12:11-12 
“I was hesitant to share as it seemed every time I did things would get worse. But honestly, God was doing major work behind the scenes. I recently had a false start home by my husband that I thought would take me out. BUT GOD. I thought the process was over but it was really just beginning. I needed to completely let go and stop trying to help God who had everything under control. Through many tears and pain God has continued to carry me. Recently my beloved called to say that he was sorry for not keeping his vows to me and for any heartache and pain he may have caused. That was huge! God's timing is not ours but it’s always the best. Be encouraged. No weapon formed against us, our marriage or our family shall be able to prosper- Isaiah 54:17. We win in the end.”  (Connecticut) 
“At work I wear gloves and I accidentally threw my wedding ring in the trash which had been taken to the dumpster. After realizing what I’d done, I drove back to work and, in the dark, I fished out all of our trash bags. I was going on a date the following night because I've grown so lonely. Searching through the trash on my living room floor several times, the ring was nowhere to be found. I began to sob and told God if it was about the date I would not go. Right after the words came out of my mouth I turned around to find the ring on the floor behind me. I didn’t go. No more situational standing!” (Texas)
"Thursday I received a call from a creditor threatening to seize my appliance for the debt. I prayed and the Lord told me to call my prodigal and tell him about it. I did and my prodigal paid most of it. To God be the glory. My prodigal still cares." (Jamaica)
“All I can say is through my doubt and fear God gave me a sign. I have been praying constantly and fasting, but doubt and fear were my constant companions. My prodigal wife today was extremely upset at me. She said some very hurtful things concerning our circumstances and the OM she is currently with. I stayed calm and loved her through it. When she came to the point of hinting at me leaving her alone, I asked her boldly (I don't recommend this), ‘Do you want me to just give up and quit this?’ She immediately responded, ‘No. I need to think.” God does work miracles! And He loves to save marriages! I am not out of the woods, but my wife is talking to me and I will take that. God will do the rest!”  (South Dakota)

"My husband is home. He had only moved into our basement, but had left our marriage. I am so thankful that a friend told me about this Ministry. My husband and I are both reading 'After The Prodigal Returns.' We went to a weekend military marriage seminar and renewed our wedding vows. Praise the Lord." (Colorado)

"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)
“In God's timing... I found RMM a few months ago on the web while looking for advise on marriage restoration. I'm the ‘Bob’ in our marriage but turned into the ‘Charlyne’ after my wife said, ‘I'm done’ and moved out. I've been standing for a while now. I listen to Charlyne's messages and read Charlyne Caresevery day. Today was the first Saturday I had to work in over two years. Things were slow, so I listened to more messages including, ‘An Affair to Dismember.’ The OW and I WERE still in contact ‘as friends’ but God clearly spoke to me and said to cut that tie. I asked God for direction. On my way home, traffic was unusually terrible and I was getting impatient when I looked up and saw a Covenant Transport truck followed by a Swift Transport. PTL! I will stand forever. God is so awesome”  (Georgia) 
Join the many standers and prayer warriors who pray for all the court dates on ourCourt Pagepraying that they will be canceled.  
“Well PTL! Through much prayer and fasting my fellow standers, my prodigal moved out from the other woman. He is still not home yet but it happened suddenly. My fellow standers, that could only be my God. Don't give up. Keep standing! We are now having worship together day and night. The enemy is not going to give up but he's already defeated by the power of Jesus' blood. Continue to pray for my marriage as I will for you and your spouse. God bless!” (Florida)  

"Praise be to God for bringing my husband home. I thank God for allowing me to show my husband unconditional love. I can see the Lord at work in my husband. I can, for the first time ever, go straight to my Heavenly Father for guidance in my marriage. We still have a long way to go, but praise and glory goes to God that we will be able to take this road together." (California)

"One of my prodigals has returned. My estranged son recently invited me to visit him and his new wife. I was warmly received and later he asked me to forgive him for all that he had done against me and especially for not allowing me to attend his wedding. My heart overflowed with love as I hugged and kissed him and told him all was forgiven. Praise the Lord." (United Kingdom)
“I was wrestling with how to communicate to my spouse that I was standing for our marriage, I had promised God I would keep silent and let Him do the work of touching his heart. I got my answer in the car the next morning. I had fasted my radio months ago so that I could have silence and pray, but I unconsciously turned the radio on. Just as I realized what I had done and went to turn it off, I heard these words from a pastor, ‘I want you to pray for him every day at 9 while he is gone. And let him know that you are praying. He will not be able to escape your earnest prayers.’ It was the perfect answer! I sent him a card explaining that every day at 9 am and pm I would be praying for him until death do us part. I have set my phone alarm to pray, and now I have great peace knowing that at least two times a day he is thinking about me too.” (Pennsylvania)
“I woke up Sunday morning with an intense feeling of getting ready to go worship. I have been sluggish most Sunday mornings and not wanting to go anywhere, but today there was an urgency to not be late. When I got to church I saw a young mother and her son sitting two pews behind me. I had a feeling that this woman had something to do with this anxious feeling. I knelt down and prayed. I had  the continuous thought to share one of the small pamphlets from RMM with this woman. I fought it thinking I may be not hearing this from God, but the feeling continued to get very intense. I got up and went to her and told her what God was telling me to do and handed her the pamphlet. She just said thank you so much. The anxiety left my being and the sermon went on to be on how God is happy with us when we are obedient to what He asks of us even if it does not make sense to us.”  (Michigan) 

“I have given up a few times in my stand but God has always reminded me He is faithful and to trust Him. Earlier this year I received my suddenly from my beloved, but due to me giving up and detouring it caused us to split up. For months I agonized about missing my suddenly. I attended the Dallas Rejoice on the Road conference and was encouraged by Charlyne praying for me and my beloved. After the prayer, Charlyne told me to continue praying and be prepared to write my testimony. I decided to let go and let God, stop trying to control my spouse coming back to me, seek God for His will for my life, and grow in Christ. During the process God taught me to trust Him to move on the other side of the mountain and that He is faithful. Well to God be all the Glory. My spouse has contacted me to say he is now ready to work on us and reconcile.”  (Texas)

“Last month I was unsure how I was going to make it to pay the bills for rent, etc. for this month. Today I received an email from my husband saying he transferred money to our joint account so I can pay some bills. It wasn't the full amount, but it covered the major bills. God moved in friends from church and they provided groceries and money to cover the rest of my bills for this month. God is so good! While I would pray to Him about my financial state, He would just tell me to trust Him. And I am so glad that I did. He is always faithful!”  (California)  
“Yesterday was my second dose of chemo, and I was feeling very alone and weary. I prayed that God would shine the light to my a path a bit brighter, that I might stay on that path and know exactly what His will is. Driving my daughter to school in the morning, we saw a lot of Swift trucks. One of the trucks had the drivers name painted under his window; it read ‘Daniel.’ My daughter said that this was for Daniel in the Lion's Den, because our family is in the Lion's Den right now! Tears fell down my face as I saw what was painted in a small box on the side of the truck; in capital letters with a red heart it said ‘I love my wife!’ Thank You God, for the spotlight you gave me! Standing stronger for my husband, my marriage, and my family!”  (California) 
“God is working on the other side of my mountain and nothing is impossible for GOD. (Luke 1:37) God does know what we need and He always provides answers in His perfect timing. I was under attack and becoming weak. Suddenly, I received a text out of the blue from my husband and he asked, 'Could I forgive him as Jesus forgave us?' Did I really believe that we could forgive each other as so much has happened? I answered, I have forgiven him and I do believe through Christ that yes, our love and life would be new. He was welcomed home with love and joy. My restoration is coming and my marriage will be new. This was a miracle and a confirmation from GOD that he is control and all will be renewed. Fellow standers please remember Psalm 37: 4–Take delight in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Keep your focus on the Lord and he will do a mighty work.”  (New Jersey) 
“Our God is a faithful God. Though my ‘suddenly’ is not here yet, God has opened door after door since separation. From job openings to getting a new apartment and most of all finding Rejoice Ministry. He is working as we pray. Do not give up standers!” (Kansas)
My husband has been back home for now some years and the Lord continues to bless us. Even if it was a really painful season, I am grateful because God changed me. Our life is different. God is faithful.”  (Florida) 
"My husband has been back home with our family for a year this month. Thank you so much for your daily devotionals. I have told many people that I feel like you are a second set of parents to me. So many times I would open my email to read the exact word I needed for that exact time. My husband is growing each day to be the Godly man and father I believed he could be. Before your ministry, I didn't know I had a right to stand on our covenant. I love you both dearly, and if I never meet you on this earth, you will be some of the first I search for when we all get to Heaven." (Georgia)
