Have you had your marriage destroyed?
Charlyne teaches that you need to allow God to become your Architect, Contractor, and the Builder of your marriage. This CD contains two teachings by making an acronym out of the Word: RESTORATION. She teaches you can start the process of rebuilding and restoring your marriage right now. Never forget that there is no marriage that is hopeless when you have Jesus Christ rebuilding your home on His solid foundation.

LUNCH BREAK TESTIMONIES
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

Sing to God, you kingdoms of the earth, sing praise to the Lord, to him who rides across the highest heavens, the ancient heavens, who thunders with mighty voice.  Proclaim the power of God, whose majesty is over Israel, whose power is in the heavens.  Psalm 68:32-33

“My marriage has been restored for 18 years. My spouse and I have been involved in different aspects of ministry over the years, but recently the Lord has had us focusing on supporting standers through prayer and counsel. I have been connected to some amazing people, including a stander halfway around the world. Technology allows us to connect and a friendship is growing. I don’t understand why God has chosen this, but I give Him praise that He uses me to come alongside others who are on a journey I have taken.”  (California)

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.  2 Corinthians 1:3-4

“I did not have a close relationship with God when my husband left. I wanted to fight for my marriage, but I thought it would take two of us. Then I heard God speak to me, telling me that He was standing at my shoulder and that He and I would fight together for my marriage, so there was my ‘two.’ I did not even know the term standing, but shortly thereafter I found RMM. The books, CDs and daily devotionals are so helpful, and the testimonies so encouraging. My husband continues to drift in and out of contact with me. I pray daily for his salvation and well being, as God allows me to see glimpses of his life spiraling out of control. He hasn’t even shown up for our last two court dates (alleluia). I continue to pray and fast for my marriage and all other standers and prodigals. I continue to receive restoration messages all around me. Psalm 34:18 – The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”  (California)

“My in-home prodigal told me several months ago that he wanted a divorce. A friend of mine referred me to RMM and I began standing for my marriage. The first few months were brutal and I came to discover there was an OW. God sustained me through many tears and intense pain. Recently my husband finally admitted the affair to me, but said he had ended it and that it had been over for quite awhile. He still thinks we need to separate so he can figure things out. But there is much caring and affection between us and God has definitely softened his heart towards me. This whole thing has brought me back to God, as I had drifted away and left the door wide open for Satan to walk right in. I have faith and believe that God will restore our marriage, but in His perfect time and way. Meanwhile, I will stand in the gap for my husband AND my teenage son who is not walking with the Lord either. Don’t give up standers. God is working. God’s got this! Praise the Lord! Jeremiah 31:16-17.”  (North Carolina)

Thus says the Lord: “Refrain your voice from weeping, And your eyes from tears; For your work shall be rewarded, says the Lord, And they shall come back from the land of the enemy. There is hope in your future, says the Lord, That your children shall come back to their own border.”  Jeremiah 31:16-17 (NKJV)

“Several months ago, I heard the words, ‘It is not walking pneumonia, this has the markers of cancer.’ Boom, in the middle of a stand. So, you walk it out, alone. Headed to another cat scan this morning, I was recounting the journey through this and even with no insurance how God impressed upon me the first night, several months ago, to trust and not give the financial a worry. He has opened doors and kept me from the unnecessary, provision was granted and rest through it all. As I thanked Him, a ‘Peace’ transport truck passed me. Never ever have I seen one of these before! I claimed it and look forward to watching this opportunity for my God to show up and show out! We may wonder about the length of our stands or the things we face alone. Ultimately, I believe we are learning to kick worry and fretfulness to the curb forever, in preparation for a God-approved marriage!”  (Oklahoma)

“Praising God! I have been praying about this for months. A few weeks ago, I asked my wife if we could go to a week-on, week-off schedule for the kids. She agreed, for the first time in years, without going to court. I just left my attorney’s office and the paperwork has been sent to her attorney for a signature. So, the kids and I start our new schedule! As I was leaving, my attorney shook my hand warmly and said, ‘I wanted to let you know that my wife and I are in the process of reconciling… thanks to you and your stand. I thought you were the craziest client I’ve ever had in 20-plus years of being a lawyer. NO ONE has hung on as long and as consistently as you have and I wanted to know what God was doing in your life, so I’ve been praying and working on overcoming family history and other issues and reached out to her…and now we’re dating again after being divorced for years!’ I hugged him and said, ‘Thank You, Jesus!’ Keep the faith!”  (Arizona)

“Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.  In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”  Matthew 5:15-16

“Praise God! Even though God has been silent for some time, He has shown me that He is working. Our court date was pushed back because the judge was unavailable. Then it was pushed back again because my husband’s lawyer was unavailable. God has shown me that He is working at last!”  (Australia)

“A week ago, I found out my husband left the OW. His parents requested to keep our kids. I praised God they were able to see him because it’s rare. I haven’t communicated with my husband in a couple of years. But I praise God because I see He is working on the other side of the mountain. God has given me a makeover – a new heart, new eyes, organization skills, etc. These alone have made this trial worth it all. Although, my restoration isn’t here yet, I’m confident God is faithful in keeping His promise. After the first attempt the Israelites were not fully out, but the second time God made sure they were out and couldn’t go back! Praise God for closed doors and new pathways!”  (Texas)

“All praise to the Lord Almighty! My husband left for the second time and I didn’t understand why the Lord allowed it to happen, but I pressed on, knowing that God is still God. My eyes have been opened to see that the first time wasn’t the right time. My husband has started opening up about how unhappy he is and he doesn’t know why he left again. He feels he is too far gone to come back and he’s done so much in such little time. He feels like he has failed us. My husband is very lost, but I’m trusting the Lord to continue showing him the way. I continue to encourage him, love him and pray for him because no matter how it may seem, the Lord is moving. He has also told me that random people have been speaking to him and he knows now that it is the Lord. He regrets ever meeting the OW and falling into all of this. I pray his eyes will continue to open and God will give me grace and strength to not give up.”  (Florida)

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

“God is so amazing. God put it on my heart to start calling my husband by the nickname I gave to him before we separated. That made my husband open up to me and show affection. He hasn’t done that in awhile. I told someone else the good news and instead of being excited for what God is doing, they asked why isn’t my husband home yet then? Even though my husband is not home yet physically, I’m still thanking God for the small blessings. I know change takes time and I’m praising Him for what He’s already done.”  (Virginia)

“I am a stander of several years. This year my husband stopped communication and visits with our kids. He was very strong about divorcing me. My kids were telling me to move on because their dad was happy. I was devastated knowing that he was going to church with the OW and fasting/ praying for God’s help with their relationship. Coming from church on Mother’s Day this year I found a card from him in our home. He mentioned how he wanted to follow God’s will. The lack of communication was because he was miserable. He also mentioned how the more he and the OW were praying and trying to get closer to God, the more God drifted them apart. Also, the messages at church were all about marriage and family. We as standers are constantly praying for a miracle, but when we get one we can’t hardly believe it. My husband is not home yet but divorce papers are canceled. For the first time in many years he opened his heart to God and to me, confessing he made a huge mistake.”  (Florida)

The Lord’s slave must not quarrel, but must be gentle to everyone, able to teach, and patient, instructing his opponents with gentleness. Perhaps God will grant them repentance to know the truth. 2 Timothy 2:24-25 (HCSB) Today I had a chance to practice this verse with my sweet, yet quarrelsome, teenage daughter. Usually when she begins to resist my instructions, I ‘fight back’ in the flesh, demanding that she respect me as her mother. This response always breeds anger and division-the enemy’s classic weapons. Now I am fighting with spiritual weapons, prayer! I pray for my daughter every day, asking God to save her and use her for His glory. So, when she began using unkind words today, rather than argue, I simply smiled and told her I loved her. Later, I blessed her with an Almond Joy bar which is my term of endearment for her. She smiled, and I knew then I had won that battle!  A gentle answer turns away anger, but a harsh word stirs up wrath. Proverbs 15:1 (HCSB).”  (Texas)

“After a prayer line, I was led to RMM a couple of weeks ago. I had been under spiritual warfare for a long time. I had unshakeable faith but never peace until I found RMM. Then I understood. Praise God. Since praying with this new understanding as a covenant wife, the enemy has used every repetitive tactic as relayed in the Charlyne Cares emails. The OP, the Jezebel Spirit, the insurmountable financial situations. All of it. But God! My prodigal and I have been texting and sometimes speaking. My prodigal went silent then sent me photos of our pets yesterday. He did not acknowledge my previous texts or inquire about me, but even that is ‘normal’ in this struggle. When I falter, doubt and feel shame, God sends another sign that is personal to my prayers. He is continuing to work on me for His purpose. Love is unconditional and the enemy will try to dissuade you even in silence. Turn to Jesus and know our Father loves His children.”  (Canada)

“I have been praying for my marriage for a few years now. The battle is rough, but God. I have been to court about seven times now and each time God has blocked it. God is amazing because even when I was in fear He still answered my prayer; even when I became depressed, even when I wanted to end my life, God was still there. Psalm 91 has given me comfort many times. 2 Chronicles 20:1-30 was given to me before court. ‘Stand and see the salvation of the Lord.’ Therefore, I encourage you all to pray always, listen for the voice of God and stand and see the salvation of the Lord. The Lord said in Hebrews marriage is honorable, therefore may we honor God in our marriage when our marriages are restored.”  (California)

If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.  Psalm 91:9-12

“God is good! My suddenly has come! My husband is not physically in the home yet but he has told me that he wants to work on our marriage and that he loves me and wants to spend the rest of his life with me! Thank You, Jesus! For the first several months or so I was praying but I was not fully letting go of the situation; I was trying to find ways to get my husband home and I was trying to manipulate the situation. It wasn’t until I fully let go and let God. A few months back I was praying in my car and I was telling God it was too hard and that if He wanted to keep standing I would need a sign. As soon as I got done praying I saw a semi that said Rapid and I thought to myself that could mean the same thing as swift. Then right behind the rapid truck was a Swift truck! I was in awe with God’s signs. I learned to trust in God and put Him first and let Him fight for me. My husband and I are communicating better now than we ever have and only God could bring him to where he is now. Keep the faith!”  (Texas)

Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today… he Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”  Exodus 14:13-14
