I am praising the Lord that we are sending out an extra bonus of testimonies from standers around the world. To God be the glory! I know that having marriage problems, being separated or divorced or having your spouse possibly marry the other person for a season is not easy, but God is moving in hearts and lives around the world!
Please stand firm, walking in faith, believing and trusting in the Lord’s mighty power. God is faithful to His promises. God is a God of reconciliation! – Charlyne

Let heaven and earth praise him, the seas and all that move in them, for God will save Zion and rebuild the cities of Judah. Then people will settle there and possess it; the children of his servants will inherit it, and those who love his name will dwell there.  Psalm 69:34-36

“My covenant partner for life is coming back! After several years of standing. PTL! I thank God for helping me not to let go even when the battle for our restoration grew stronger. The Lord took control and has done what no man can do. While we where apart our hearts grew warmer; today the love is better, I love this Love! God has given us hearts of flesh and removed our hearts of stone; He has put a new spirit within us! What the enemy meant for evil the Lord has turned around for good for His purpose. Surely goodness and mercy will continue to follow my husband and I wherever we go until we enter the land of promise. We love You Jesus and our hearts are overwhelmed with joy and thanksgiving.”  (United Kingdom)

“You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.  Instead of the thornbush will grow the juniper, and instead of briers the myrtle will grow. This will be for the Lord’s renown, for an everlasting sign, that will endure forever.”  Isaiah 55:12-13

“Our legal divorce happened through the courts last week. As much as I prayed and pleaded, my prayer turned into, ‘Let Your will be done, Lord, not mine.’ As I continue to stand for my covenant, God continues to speak to me. This past weekend at church, we started 2 Corinthians and it was titled, ‘What is God doing?’ God was speaking to me through my Pastor and as I continued to ask that question throughout the day, a lady in our small group was talking to someone else across the room. God spoke to me through her and said, ‘Now that you are out of the way, God can start working on him!’ God does speak! The last six months, God continues to show me 2 Corinthians 5:7 to continue standing. For we walk by faith, not by sight.”  (Florida)

“My husband left several months ago. A few months into our separation the Lord called me to stand. Last week I praised God because the gauntlet was finally thrown down. After I told my husband I was praying and waiting for him until death, he said, ‘I’m never coming back to you. Move on with your life.’ Praise the Lord He used RMM to prepare me for this, so I was not a puddle on the floor. Yesterday my husband received his Master’s degree alone. But God! He allowed me to see him receive his degree via webcast. He also sent the most unlikely messenger to remind my husband of me on this very special day; an old friend of mine who ‘just happened’ to be graduating also. They had never met before, but they met and spoke with each other for a bit. I have continually asked God to send messengers and workers to open his eyes and turn him from darkness to light. Stand strong and trust God always. He answers our prayers in ways we could never imagine.”  (Louisiana)

“…to open their eyes, so they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God. Then they will receive forgiveness for their sins and be given a place among God’s people, who are set apart by faith in me.’”  Acts 26:18 (NLT)

“PTL! He is a faithful God who never leaves nor forsake us. I am so excited with His doings. His ways are not our ways and who can tell what God can do. My husband left home to be with the OW and they now have a baby. Today I texted him saying how I miss a take away from my favorite restaurant. He answered by saying you can have it, and in not much time, he had deposited money to my account telling me to go buy it because he was working. I am so overjoyed. I went to buy my take away and am giving half the money to God as an offering, believing God for the restoration of my marriage. I believe my husband is coming back home soon. Nothing is impossible with God as we believe and trust Him. I am encouraging all standers to continue standing. It’s not over until God says so.”  (England)

“The Lord has allowed me to write emails and texts to my one flesh for the first time in years. The texts consisted of blessings in the form of brief statements and scriptures. I sent them every day for slightly over a month. I am thankful that he did not oppose my gesture, but was actually receptive. He responded a few times and that also blessed my heart. The purposes of the blessings was a ‘works’ to demonstrate my faith (James 2:14-26) that the grace of God can erase the memory of the discouraging and demeaning things that moved him to leave. I know it is the grace of God that enabled me to bless him the way I did. In addition to this, I have had his storage space in my (our) bedroom (including the closet) cleared for the last six months. I am ready for my suddenly! To God be the glory. Amen.”  (Canada)

But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.”  James 2:18 (NKJV)

“It has been hard to stand firm for the restoration of my marriage and my husband’s salvation, but it has also been the most wonderful experience I have ever had! I have grown so much that I am not the same. Jesus is the answer to all our questions. I have had visions of my marriage being restored. Many prayers have been answered. God is on the move! Don’t give up. He will provide and deliver in His time.”  (Michigan)

“Before I went to bed last night I prayed and told God how much I miss my husband.  I asked Him to please show me a glimpse of what’s happening on the other side of this mountain and to show me that my husband will be home soon. After I had gone to bed, my husband came by to get his Father’s Day gift. He seemed to really like his gifts but he almost looked down or sad.  I’m not sure why.  We had a really good visit and he gave me a hug and kiss before he left. I also gave him a pair of shoes. He said,’ I’m just going to leave those here. ..I’ll get them next time or something.’ Charlyne says to count it a blessing when your spouse starts leaving belongings at the house.  It means they are making their way home. I just want to thank God for giving me a glimpse of what’s going on and showing me our suddenly is near!”  (North Carolina)

“My suddenly is coming! My husband has been telling me recently he will be back in August. He is buying the airline ticket as I write this. PTL! I’ve been standing for several months and I’m giddy! Don’t give up standers. God hears our prayers! Hallelujah!”  (Iowa)

Your way was through the sea, your path through the great waters; yet your footprints were unseen.  Psalm 77:19 (ESV)

“My testimony is about obedience to God, faith and belief. During the past year as my prodigal and I have been separated, I was led to RMM. God has told me several times very clearly that my husband is coming home. I was wavering in my stand, wanting to believe, but scared, hurt and broken. I found out that he now has an OW. I was furious and I filed for divorce! I wanted it over. God kept convicting me. He told me to have the matter dismissed, so I did. When all communication stopped, I was angry and told God I need to move on, I can’t wait any longer, and filed papers again. Well, God kept telling me He was bringing my prodigal home. One day as I cried out to God for direction, I asked for some confirmation. That same day, I got my mail and a notice that my divorce was DENIED by the courts. As I sat and cried, I placed my rings back on, stood up, took a new stand for my marriage, thanked and praised God. Praise God!”  (California)

“My husband and I have been separated for several months now. It has been the hardest thing I have ever gone through. However I am grateful for the way the Lord is shaping and molding me as His bride. The Lord has been available in ways beyond what I could ever imagine. We talk all the time, He hears my detailed prayers and cares so intimately about them. He spoke to me this morning from Deuteronomy 32. I was feeling confused about my stand and He confirmed I was on the right track. He was preparing me for a miracle today. When I saw my husband today, we had a pleasant conversation. He opened up to me and was vulnerable about some life changes he is experiencing which can definitely change the direction of God’s plan for our family. I believe and trust the Lord is beginning the restoration process, my husband’s heart was so soft today, PTL. I thank the Lord for hearing my prayer and am excited to see His power unfold!”  (California)

“I will proclaim the name of the Lord; how glorious is our God!  He is the Rock; his deeds are perfect. Everything he does is just and fair. He is a faithful God who does no wrong; how just and upright he is!”  Deuteronomy 32:3-4

“My husband whom I am standing for, sent our nine-year-old daughter an email last night, wishing her a good night. He also included our youngest daughter, wishing her a good night’s rest. That is the first time I saw evidence of him acknowledging our baby girl. I went to bed praising God; I woke up this morning feeling the same. Funny, I had said to my daughter on the way home last night, ‘I feel something good is going to happen.’ Praise God, He is good.”  (United Kingdom)

“Today is my wedding anniversary. I never imagined this day without my spouse. I never imagined being as alone as I feel right now. Although I am divorced, I am reminded I am loved. I received the most beautiful anniversary card in the mail that brought me to tears, and it reminded me that love is patient, love is kind. As I stand for my marriage, I am reminded that what God has joined together, let man not separate. So as I go to bed tonight I will say a prayer for my suddenly to return home. Stay positive my standers. I believe our God is powerful and He will restore our marriages. Give it to Him and He will take care of the rest. If I have learned one thing, it is to work on me and grow in my relationship with the Lord. Waiting for God’s perfect timing.”  (California)

“A while back I had invited my daughter to go with my son and me out of state to help friends whose home needs repair. She declined. But God! While my son and I were at church camp this week she texted me stating she changed her mind and if it wasn’t too late she would like to go! I replied, ‘It’s never is too late.’ I’m posting this as my sweet daughter is next to me driving to our destination five hours away. Thank You, Father.”  (Missouri)

“My husband and I are divorced now and he lives with OW. He came to my house to pick up our son. They ended up taking our son’s car and so his vehicle was left parked in the driveway. I cannot remember the last time that happened. My stand has grown very, very weak since the divorce a few years ago, but since this happened I’m feeling convicted to remember God’s promises, that divorce isn’t the final say or the end of the road. I want my family back together.”  (Wisconsin)

“Is it a coincidence that today’s devotional had 1 Peter 5:8-10? I think not. I have read and studied as much as I could find on standing, on Christ, on how to pray, how to reach God, how to have my prayers answered. I didn’t feel a need to type out a testimony until I knew we had passed a certain test from God. I didn’t know what it was, but it happened. We as a couple stood strong. An amazing testimony to His power, mercy and grace. I received a call that was supposed to be the end. Three hours later we were on the road to reconciliation. My wife claims nothing short of a miracle for her. The biggest test was an attack by the enemy a week later. It should have finished it. I knew God would get us through it. God prevailed as always. It just brought the best out in us, made us closer. My prodigal returned because I was able to let her go from my heart to God’s. She came back because it was God’s will. Forgiveness, willingness and most of all unconditional love trumps all. PTL.”  (Massachusetts)

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.  Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings. And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.  1 Peter 5:8-10
God bless,
