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

Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens.  Psalm 68:19

“Please pray and believe! My situation was as impossible as any. The love my wife had for me was given to another, or so she said. Well guess who has the last word? The Almighty does! You must be patient in the Lord and let His timing rule. You must show unconditional love to both God and your spouse. Be patient, give it to God. I did and all the words I have read on RMM are so very true. In retrospect, I think the Lord made this separation and pending divorce happen so we could come back to Him and deal with the issues. It was a very hard lesson to learn, but strengthened me in my Christian walk and convinced me that truly, all things are possible with God. I read standing after reconciliation is tough, but mine has been so great. I just remind myself to let the past go, zip it up and give it to the Almighty. Forget it, no matter what, if you want your spouse back. After all, who wins in the end? God and you win. It will happen, but you must believe and give it to God to fight. RING ON!”  (Florida)

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man it is impossible, but not with God. For all things are possible with God.”  Mark 10:27 (ESV)

“I title my testimony ‘Letting Go.’ I truly started standing for my marriage restoration last year when I came to know RMM. My life has not remained the same. God is at work and His ultimate goal is to perfect His work in my life. He is teaching me that ‘Letting go’ is not ‘Getting back,’ neither is it ‘ Moving on and having a life.’ But it’s ‘ Standing firm and strong,’ looking at the situation and asking yourself what will Jesus do in this situation? Our Lord and God has promised to never leave nor forsake His own that trust in Him. No revenge, no anger, no plotting evil, no speaking back, no starting of arguments. The Lord is strong and mighty. He has promised to fight my battles and I hand over every one of my battles to Him. Please join me and thank God for His patience and mercy. I pray that all standers will truly let go and let God. Amen.”  (Nigeria)

“This past week I was very sad, heartbroken, and questioned should I stand. Is God really going to restore us? Our situation seems impossible. We want to be together, yet lack of finances and a home are in the way. I pray yet it seems as God does not answer. Then this weekend God spoke through two verses. In Romans 8:31, I heard God clearly, if God is for our restoration no one and nothing can stop Him, not even us. Then Psalm 46:10. God sees my striving and wants me to stop. It was clear – stop trying to make this happen in your own strength and let Me make it happen. Now is the time to not only let go, but trust God can do everything to the finest detail. I will mess up, but He will not. Our marriage will be restored fully. We will have a home and land. He is able, more than able. Now I release us to Him. He will do it. I have stop striving now! Thank You Lord!”  (Florida)

What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?  Romans 8:31

“I want to thank Jesus Christ for not giving up on me and other standers for their prayers and encouragement for my family. Elijah was in the cave; he had enough, he thought things wouldn’t change, he was at his wit’s end. He’d done all he could and thought he was alone, but he wasn’t. There were still 7000 who didn’t bow down, who didn’t give up. It’s hard doing this, it’s a struggle every day, but it’s also a privilege and it is our assignment from God to love our spouses unconditionally even if they don’t show it back. It’s sad that the people you thought would be standing with you, are now standing against you, but we are not alone fellow standers. We are the 7000. We have each other and if that’s not enough, we should encourage ourselves as David did. We could teach our children to run or to stand and fight. Our children learn not from what we tell them, but from what they see us doing. Plant those feet and don’t budge from God’s already spoken Word.”  (Ohio)

“The RMM mailings come at the perfect timing. My April anniversary card and my upcoming June birthday card from RMM came exactly when I’m desperately asking God for my husband to remember me during those times. Knowing God is faithfully remembering my special dates and my sad circumstances, He makes sure the RMM cards arrive, every time, right when I am ready to cry thinking I’ve been forgotten. Thanks, RMM and thank You Jesus! Amen!”  (New Jersey)

“My husband (I never refer to him as ex) suddenly came back a few years ago after many years apart. The past couple years have been a roller coaster, but through it all I remain standing and have grown closer to our Father God. PTL, our adult children get to see their dad. Despite the challenges, I’m trusting God for complete restoration of our marriage and family. PTL for great things He has done.”  (South Africa)

Praise the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens.  Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness.  Psalm 150:1-2

“I recently read a testimony that mentioned that the stander’s heart went out to the standers with children. I too am a childless stander. At the most painful times, like the birth of non-covenant beautiful baby girl, our divorce being granted and a recent engagement to legalize the adultery, I fell on my knees and just sobbed. I recall asking the Lord to send a prodigal home suddenly. But I specifically asked, that a stander with children to receive their prodigal. And I ask for this because in the middle of my pain, I can’t help but wonder how much more pain there is when a child is involved. You all are the reason why I know I can keep going until I am 80 in a rocking chair, like Charlyne told Bob. Because I see the strength God gives you, and I am confident that He has and will continue to do the same for me.”  (Colorado)

God’s ways are perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection. Psalm 18:30 (NLT) My husband got ditched by the OW suddenly. He was devastated for he thought they were going strong. But I know that this was God’s hand at work. I learned to zip my lips and what it means to show deep love for others. It wasn’t easy to be there for him unconditionally at first, hearing him talk about the OW and wanting her back. But I looked to God for strength and asked Him to help me trust in the promises He gave me. Things are so much better now. My husband’s eyes are slowly being opened to the truth. He has not come back fully to the Lord, but I know, this too will happen. I know God will finish the good work he has started in us. Please continue to pray for the complete healing and renewal of our marriage. When I contemplate what God has done for me, how can I ever doubt Him again? Stand firm on God’s love!”  (Philippines)

“Today is me our wedding anniversary. There has been little to no communication between us for months. Regardless of the circumstances, the Lord woke me up this morning excited, happy, and most of all at peace. Today was special, I dressed for the occasion. Halfway through the day I realized I had forgotten to read the verse of the day (I like to read the whole chapter) on my Bible app. I was having trouble concentrating and something was trying to distract me from understanding what I was reading. So, I tried to read it repeatedly. Then the words jumped right off the screen and hit me. I went back to the top and read the name of the chapter, Promise of Restoration – Jeremiah 33. I may not have heard from my husband today, but I sure heard from my Lord. Today was a blessing from start to finish. I couldn’t have done today without my Lord. Thank You Jesus.”  (California)

“Give thanks to the Lord Almighty, for the Lord is good; his love endures forever.” For I will restore the fortunes of the land as they were before,’ says the Lord.  Jeremiah 33:11b

“My husband will be coming home next week for the first time since he left a few months ago. It’s just for one day. I’ve been praying for God to soften his heart to come this way because he has not wanted to come back over here even to visit. I’ve been seeking the Lord daily and started a prayer journal with prayers for my spouse. I see God working in his heart. I pray that God will touch his heart and speak to him as he has been waiting for God to speak to him. We have been talking more and laughing more together. The other night when I hung up with him I told him I loved him and he actually responded back and said I love you too. Thank you for this ministry. Before all this, I was ready to throw in the towel and just say forget it. But now I have peace and pray and wait for God to work in my husband while He works in me also.”  (Texas)

“God bless you all at RMM. I’ve been standing for several months. My wife is with a coworker and friend. Satan deceived them as ‘prayer partners.’ Before I was afflicted I went astray, but He caused me to remember His precepts. (Psalm 119:67) I ordered the prodigal pack and it is sitting on top of my divorce decree that had been filed. God is so good. His grace has sustained me and the books confirmed for me that God is leading me the entire way. Last night and this morning in prayer, I prayed hard for their souls and asked God to check my heart about him and He confirmed it with a presence so wonderful I cannot describe. All I could do was sing praises. I had a false start last week and she left as suddenly as she arrived. I’m meeting her this morning at her request so she can tell me ‘why.’ I have no anxiety because of His grace.”  (Alabama)

“After speaking to pastors about his desire to reconcile, my husband was not encouraged to leave the non-covenant wife and child. I hadn’t heard him for a few months since he spoke to them. God has been restoring my love for my husband too. The day after I broke a seven day fast, my husband called. We reiterated our love for each other and he is praying for God’s direction in this situation. Complete restoration will come in Jesus’ Name. God is sovereign. Standers, He will restore our marriages. Forgive and pray for those who are sincere but may not understand His will. All the glory belongs to God.”  (Barbados)

Then will the eyes of the blind be opened and the ears of the deaf unstopped.  Isaiah 35:5
