Restored Marriage Testimonies

restored_header2

Much of what we do through Rejoice Marriage Ministries, Inc. is measured against how it would have affected me when Bob and I were divorced, and then after we remarried.

We receive many notices of spouses coming home each week. From that joyful date, it is going to take the couple about two years to heal the hurts, forget that other person, and to reconcile. Only then will they be ready to help other couples. We will never knowingly harm a struggling couple by publishing a premature restoration report. We hear of too many prodigals who leave again, because too much was being said.

These pages are not intended to be a report of all Rejoice restored marriages. Neither are they trophies for this Ministry. They are published to give you hope and encouragement.

"Praise the Living Lord, my husband is home! Thank you, Bob and Charlyne, for your uplifting messages and insight into the prodigal mind. He is now home and leading our family in worship and God has turned him into a mighty man of God. I just wanted to encourage all who are standing to never give up. God is faithful."

“After several years of standing for my wife to come home, two weeks ago she texted me saying she couldn't do it anymore by herself. My suddenly has happened. We are now planning on getting remarried in February of next year. I am still in awe at God's power. I had given up towards the end and started to try to move on with another woman but God wouldn't allow it. I tried but God told me, ‘What makes you think I'm going to give you more or less than what I already promised you.’ Now we are doing great and there is blessing every step of the way. We have a long ways to go and, as she said, a lot of catching up to do. God is so wonderful and gracious. Please never give up standers. You never know when your suddenly will come. Stay faithful and wait on God. Make Him your spouse as you await the arrival of your broken spouse. God will restore if you just wait on Him. Thank you RMM for all your support and help. May God continue to use you in a mighty way like He has in my life. God bless!”  (Louisiana)

"Last weekend my husband asked me to move in with him. This request was on the 12th anniversary of our first date, which we never discussed, but God knew. Thank You Lord for Your faithfulness. I am trusting and believing God's promises to me. I am so much closer to the Lord than when we first separated. I don't know if I would have made it without learning to trust in the Lord."

"After several months of standing, my husband suddenly returned home two weeks before Christmas! We serve an amazing God. And thank God for Rejoice Ministries. They kept me standing when I did not have the strength to stand. Our reconciliation has been difficult but my wonderful Savior has drawn me so close to Him that I know He will restore my marriage to more than it was before this nightmare began. Keep standing standers! God will honor your stand. Stand strong!" (Kentucky)

"Three weeks ago my wife came back. Before that I started loving her unconditionally through God's grace and prompting. The relationship went from one where my wife refused to speak or communicate with me, to a point where she started coming by the house daily. Thursday before she came back, God sent me to I0saiah 7:7-9. Charlyne's topic that day was 'What To Do When Your Spouse Comes Back.' Friday God sent signs telling me my wife was coming back. On Saturday my wife came back. What God started He will finish." (California)

“My husband left our home at my insistence. I really believed the right thing to do was to divorce him, though he didn’t want the divorce. The divorce went through, though at the end I didn’t even want it! I had no peace about our family being fractured. My husband was working at the other end of the state and I could see that his relationship with our youngest son was becoming lost. I reached out to my husband with honesty and, for the first time in a long time, he also responded in honesty. In a little over a week he will be moving back home and starting a new job here. Praise the Lord!”  (Florida) (posted 8/4/2014)

"My husband wanted a divorce so I moved out. I started standing and praying. Nothing was happening and my husband was still convinced that he wanted a divorce, but I continued to believe God for the restoration of our marriage. On Mother's Day my husband took me on a date and the Monday after Mother's Day he asked me and my son to move back in so we can be a family again. Praise God." (Florida)

“I give God all the glory for my husband is home after six years in the far country. He came home earlier this year. This is after one false start four years ago. Today my husband is apologetic to both my son and me and has renewed his commitment to us. Every day he tells me how much he loves me. Standers, don’t give up. My situation seemed impossible, but God gave me many promises that I stood on. In conversations with my husband he tells me how many times he came close to divorce but something held him back. I know it was God. My prayer was always for him to return to the Lord. He is back in church with me, praising God. I always remember Bob’s book The Saved Seat. I saved his seat and he is now sitting there every Sunday. There are many plans in a man’s heart, Nevertheless the LORD’s counsel – that will stand. Proverbs 19:21 (NKJV.)  (Trinidad & Tobago) (posted 12/11/2014)

“To Our Lord and Savior Jesus be all praise and glory. After two and a half years, another marriage, many mistakes by me, and more hours crying out to God then I could ever recall, my wife and one flesh mate is home. I cannot begin to describe the process that brought us to this glorious time except to say God kept His Word. When my wife left and God told me to wait for her I didn’t know what to make of it. He told me He had given me one wife and the only one He would give me. He told me to wait for her and be faithful to my vows. Yes it was suddenly, but it was a reunion I will praise Him for forever. I was worried when that day came that I would still be hurt and angry. But God took just enough time to take all that away and build the love and complete forgiveness I would need to welcome her home without condition or reservation. Don’t give up, not ever. He is not slow to keep His promises; He takes just the right amount of time to make us ready and complete His work and not a day more.” (Alaska)

As the pain started to melt into compassion for my then ex-husband I was able to forgive, and came to see that God was caring for both of us. One day he showed up at my door and was very contrite. He wanted to come home. He was a new man. He realized the hand of the devil had taken its toll. I welcomed him back with open arms. We are now remarried and happier than ever. Our remarriage is squarely based on Christianity."  (Wisconsin)

"Nothing compares to the promise we have in Jesus. After years of separation and divorce, my prodigal and I were remarried one month ago. A year ago, there was no indication of reconciliation. He was still trying to marry someone else. He started the journey home and a few months later was talking about our future. I never took off my wedding band during the journey and now I have a new one with rubies because my husband says I am the Proverbs woman whose price is far above rubies. I wear them both. God is faithful to perform what He what He has promised." (Illinois)

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.

"As soon as I was able to let go and fully let God, my marriage was restored, thanks to the Lord. It all happened just like you said it would. God's time is perfect. My husband left the other woman suddenly, checked into the hospital to detox for alcoholism and came home broken and in need of love, first to God then to a praying, standing wife and our children. No questions asked. Zipping my lips, as you say, is what is making this all a joyful restoration. It is work in progress. He is now to God's glory the lead vocalist for our church choir. Watching him praise God with tearful eyes is what fills the holes that the Enemy tried to bore in me. Praise the Lord. What a mighty God we serve. I hope I can encourage every stander to never, never lose heart. Continue to hold on because just like Charlyne and Bob said, it was all worth what we have now. Thank you for being used by God to keep people like us shining the light for our lost prodigals to find their way home." (New York)

“Praising God Almighty, my husband came home on New Year's Day! What an awesome way to start off 2014. All the testimonies I have read can never compare to actually living it. He said things that were what I was waiting to hear but the most incredible thing he said was, ‘I love you and I always have.’ I truly never thought he would say that until later into our reconciliation... but God. There were so many great moments but another one was when he thanked me for standing! Our three children are overjoyed and getting to see what a mighty God we serve. For you standers out there, stay strong, He is faithful and He will do it! All I keep thinking about is Ephesians 3:20. Don't be discouraged, stand strong to see firsthand what a mighty God we serve”  (New Jersey)

PRODIGALS DO COME HOME

By Heather

“To stand. To fight on my knees in prayer. To suffer and be persecuted for the sake of Christ and my husband’s salvation.

I never knew what these words meant before my life changed forever on November 6, 2010. Three weeks before our seventh wedding anniversary, my husband admitted to a very recent affair. Confused, thinking he was feeling emotions of real love, he left me and my children. We had a newborn baby and a three-year-old. Devastation and shock doesn’t begin to describe my feelings. I was completely blindsided, weak, lost and in despair. Thankfully, the Holy Spirit inside me told me to cling to Jesus and to trust Him. I was so scared though, worried about my small children and fearing the future. I was desperate for answers and support. I tried to regain some control in an uncontrollable situation. Talking to family and friends, people gave me advice left and right. I tried to convince my husband we were God’s plan for one another but everything seemed to push him further away. I didn’t understand how and why this happened. I knew we had weaknesses in our marriage but I thought we always had time to make it better. I never realized how many ways God made me “one” with my spouse until he was no longer there. It felt like half of me was missing and I didn’t know how to function. I ached for his return.

Crying out to God day and night, I was so weary from caring for a newborn and my three-year-old on my own. I was completely drained from my fragile emotionalstate. As time went on, my circumstances were not getting better. I had to put a stop to listening and pleasing others. God was the only one I wanted to please. He alone was my true comfort. Psalm 62:5says:Find rest, O my soul in God alone; my hope comes from him.I so appreciated the loving people God surrounded me with during that time but God alone was my Rock. Thankfully, through faith, I never lost hope.

Early on in my stand, God led me to some wonderful scriptures. 

For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle and set me high upon a rock. Psalm 27:5

Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.  Psalm 27:14

On that day they will say to Jerusalem, “Do not fear, O Zion; do not let your hands hang limp.  The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save.  He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.”  Zephaniah 3:16-17

I needed to be patient. God would take care of me. God showed me to pray for my husband with all I had and to not give up. But my circumstances seemedto get worse and worse. I heard the words “I never loved you at all” and “the kids will be fine, this happens to people all the time.” I was so shocked and dismayed that my husband was acting like a complete stranger. He was now completely rejecting God along with me, his covenant wife. He had moved in with the other person and filed for divorce. My pain was so extreme. I would lay on the floor weeping, unable to pull myself up. I even tried a divorce recovery group at a local church. But I felt so lost and didn’t belong there. They didn’t talk about praying for our estranged spouses or standing for one covenant marriage, one spouse for a lifetime. It was all about how to make myself better instead. I left that group, crying out to God for support.

Looking online later, I discovered Rejoice Marriage Ministries. I realized with joy in my heart, that everything I felt deep inside was biblical and there was a large ministry full of people just like me. Many others were willing to love their spouse unconditionally and stand for marriage restoration even past a divorce. RMM showed me specific scriptures to pray for my spouse like Psalm 51 and Acts 26:18 which says, “‘…to open their eyesand turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins...’”I was emboldened to pray against evil. The devil had come into my home to steal, devour, and destroy. My prodigal husband was not the enemy!

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6:12

I was reminded that we are called to love like Jesus, especially in the words of 1 Corinthians 13. I was to love my prodigal no matter how he treated me in return. This was my calling from the Lord! Praying these scriptures over my marriage and family gave me peace, strength, and perseverance to push forth. I clung to God’s Word like never before. Worshipmusic replaced any others. Fictional books and watching television wereno longer interesting to me. All I wanted to do was pray for my husband using God’s words and find comfort within the pages of my Bible. I knew God could do miracles.

“For nothing is impossible with God.”  Luke 1:37

I had let go of fixing my marriage by my own words and hands. I had to completely surrender my husband, marriage and family to God. I felt persecuted from believers and nonbelievers. No one could understand how I could love and choose to forgive such actions. But Jesus is that ultimate example. Through deep prayer and trying to listen to His voice only, I was led to Isaiah 55. God showed me that He would provide for me and my kids (v 1-2). He showed me that my husband would turn from his ways and be reconciled to God (v 6-7). God reminded me His thoughts and ways are way above and beyond my own (v 8-9). And that His will and Word would be accomplished (v 11). Finally, the other relationship would end, and our marriage would be restored all for God’s glory! (v 13). Praise the Lord! I had this complete peace my marriage would be restored in God’s timing. A peace filled me that surpasses all understanding (Philippians 4:7). As I prayed on my knees each day, I knew I had to be patient and love my husband from afar. My prodigal assured me it would never happen, but I knew God would fulfill His promise to me.

God was moving on the other side of the mountain without me knowing it. From the world’s perspective, my marriage had no chance. I heard of my husband’s engagement and saw a new ring on his wedding finger. I thought it couldn’t get worse. But as I prayed, God showed me this was the devilpulling out all the ammunition he had left to destroy my marriage and family. Satan was trying to convince me to give up on my prodigal! But it made me pray even harder. He came to visit and I had total peace and love for him. As time had passed, by the grace of God, my love had only grown for my husband. I knew he was lost in darkness (Ephesians 4:18-19) and I trusted in God who is mighty to save on His timing not mine. My husband’s eternal destination was more important than anything else.

A coupleweeks later, things started to change. My husband shared that he listened to some Christian music again and he wanted some of his old theology books. He started to be more kind, apologizing for his hateful words and for missing the beginning of our precious baby’s life. He started to “test the waters,” asking me questions. He still thought he had gone too far to come back home. I assured him of my love and open arms and that he is always welcome back home. On April 3, 2011 my prodigal husband walked through the door! It was completely over with the other person. He wanted to be my husband again and wanted to be a full time daddy to our boys. God had saved his heart and soul, praise be to God! My husband returned humbled and completely broken. I felt broken inside myself but God is faithful to restore our marriage and family completely. The cross and the love of Christ covers all sins, redeems all, restores all.

Now a year later, I am blessed to have my husband by my side. We have come through the fire and now work on our marriage day by day that brings glory to God. We are cleaving together as one in this new place, building day by day on the solid rock of Jesus. We now know the reality of evil and what it means to pray for each other, our marriage and family. I now pray the Armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18) daily against the devil’s attacks so he never gets a foothold again in our home.

We have victory in Jesus! I have learned to persevere, to fill my mind with God’s truth and put off lies from the devil. I have learned to fix my eyes on Jesus and run this race He has called me to (Hebrews 12:1-2). I have learned to always stand and fight this labor of love for my marriage and family. Praise be to God who has rescued us from the darkness and set us on the solid rock of Jesus that cannot be shaken. Prodigals do come home, may all the glory be His!

I came across your web site, and it was my answer. I love so much what you are doing. Thank you God for sending me here. Your web site has taught me a lot and has led me to pray for my spouse. He decided yesterday to put his ring back on, and to come home. He has slowly been getting closer to me and the kids. He agreed to counseling. God has been so faithful. A small group I am in at church has told me the change they have seen in my faith. Praise God again. He is the only way out of the misery this world brings. I hope that anyone who doesn't want to forgive or forget, or is crying in misery will remember Jesus. He is the way maker. I wish I would have realized this sooner." (Indiana) (posted 5/6/2005)

I really believe that God is using my life as a Christian woman with unconditional love for (husband) to also clear a pathway for him to see his way back to God. He wants to do whatever it takes to have us be on the road to learning how to really have and function in a marriage with Jesus being the Lord of our marriage and life together. I am in awe of what I am seeing and hearing from him! He said he wants to study and read the Word together and pray together-bottom line-walk with the Lord together. He told me that he could stand up and tell anyone not to go down the road he was on for all these years. For years I worried about how I could ever trust my husband again. I tell you, Bob and Charlyne, that thought is not even in my head or heart! I have seen and felt his love for me and his deep commitment to want God's way and blessing in his life and our life together as a couple. I will never forget what my husband told me last Monday night, 'I traded in gold for sawdust!' Wow! I am just in awe of what God is doing and look forward to all He has for us in our new future together." (Washington) (posted 11/20/2004)
