This testimony is proof once again
that God does heal marriages.
Greg and Missy share what led to the breakdown of their marriage. You will hear from Greg as he explains the thoughts he battled that eventually led him to leave his home and into the arms of another woman.

Missy cried out to the Lord and had grown in her faith, enough to not be shaken when news of a non-covenant baby was delivered.

You will hear how God brought Greg home and resurrected their marriage after he moved home. You will once again be encouraged to believe that God does touch and transform hearts in His perfect timing

SATURDAY TESTIMONIES
Below are excerpts from a few of the testimonies we have received in the past week, each shared with the writer’s permission. These are not to tell you how to stand and what to do, but are given here to share how God moves when people are praying. Do you have a testimony to share to encourage others?

“I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.”  Isaiah 42:16

“Around this time last year, my world, from the outside looking in, was starting to fall apart. I was seven months pregnant and my husband was becoming more and more isolated from me. Within a few months, it came out that he was having an internet affair with a woman in another country. He said he didn’t know if he loved me or if he ever really did. He became an in-home prodigal. Even though my flesh wanted to give up, the Lord wouldn’t let me. He used a few people to tell me everything was going to be ok if I just stood still and let Him work out the many issues of many years that led to this. It was the toughest time of my life, but also the most rewarding. I became so close to God and felt Him every step of the way. He taught me so much. Fast forward to now. I’m sitting in my living room with two beautiful children and a devoted husband, other woman long gone. What once looked impossible is now reality and I thank the Lord.”  (Kentucky)

“Now then, stand still and see this great thing the Lord is about to do before your eyes!”  1 Samuel 12:16

“After feeling weary and hopeless I write to testify that indeed God never leaves us nor forsakes us. My youngest son happily announced that they had actually been on holiday with my prodigal and the other woman. In my heart, I began to ask God if this battle was truly worth it. In no time He answered me through RMM, sending Thursday testimonies with one testimony being about a holiday with the other woman. Then a friend of mine, who doesn’t believe in our marriage being restored, called to say she just had a dream of my prodigal carrying me in his arms, declaring his love for me. Surely standers, our God is seeing each one of us through our situations and for His glory, we’ll certainly emerge victorious.”  (Zambia)

“I would like to share that God has changed me and my walk with the Lord. Even though my husband has not returned home, and I have been served with divorce papers, I continue to pray and know God will keep His promise and restore my marriage. As I sat in traffic one day, I saw a work truck that caught my attention because on the back it had ‘Restoration1.’ I knew it was Gods reminder to me. Our communication and relationship has softened, and my husband noticed my change. I believe this is making him change. I believe this is the start God wants us to have. Thank You, Jesus!! Don’t lose hope and stay in the Word, God does speak when you ask.”  (Texas)

“‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’”  Jeremiah 33:3

“All glory to God! My husband has agreed to meet me tomorrow for coffee. He does not know that my agenda for asking for this meeting is that I repent for my failure in our marriage. The Lord undeniably set events in motion that led to me asking for this meeting. I had a sense a few weeks ago that God was going to move by the end of October. Once I sent the invite, I got this ‘knowing’ in my gut, that he would choose a certain day to meet me. He did! It is two years to the day of the divorce. The Lord confirmed His promise to me at the time of the divorce that the day be the 28th. We were married 28 years. 28, mathematically, is what’s called a perfect number, so I clung to that as a promise from Him for our restoration. This step is incredible and all praise, thanksgiving and everything to Jesus!”  (Texas)

“A member of your staff called me to pray with me after I requested prayer for healing. I was so touched by her calling me as much as I was by her praying. The good news is that after my husband came home just weeks ago, I had a doctor appointment for a recheck. A week later God gave me another miracle… Without pharmaceutical antibiotics, I am healed! I am writing this to share this joy and praise with you and all who have prayed for me. Thank you very much!”  (North Carolina)

“‘Nevertheless, I will bring health and healing to it; I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security.’”  Jeremiah 33:6

“I had been standing on autopilot for months. The Lord convicted me of not praying and standing in the gap, so I asked Him for a sign that all this was happening for a reason. I got that sign during a phone call with my brother’s wife. She told me they had been asked to play a ministry couple who divorces when the husband backslides and walks away from the faith and his marriage. The wife recovers, and marries the man of her dreams. My brother told them that he and his wife cannot portray the role because he has a strong conviction after watching his sister stand in the gap for her husband by faith. He said this is the example that people need to see – a Christian woman forgiving and praying for her wayward spouse, believing for a miracle. I didn’t even know he supported my stand. I had started to believe the lie that my stand was shameful and pathetic, not knowing that God was already getting glory out of my story. We don’t know who God has watching us, never give up!”  (Oklahoma)

“Glory to God. God is busy restoring my marriage, I can feel the shift. My spouse left me and my kids for an OW and there was no communication at all between us. Last week I received a text from him saying that he wanted to spend time with the kids. He was so humble, I knew that was God. He is restoring our dead marriage as nothing is too hard for the Lord. He gave us authority to overcome all the power of the devil. Our God goes before us and levels our mountains. Standers, never, never, never give up. Put on the whole armor of God. Keep on praying and fight the good fight of faith. God bless you all. Hosea 2:6-7.”  (South Africa)

“Therefore I will block her path with thornbushes; I will wall her in so that she cannot find her way. She will chase after her lovers but not catch them; she will look for them but not find them. Then she will say, ‘I will go back to my husband as at first, for then I was better off than now.’”  Hosea 2:6-7

“Praise the true and living God. Today my husband texted me. He told me he was tired of being so emotional over our failed marriage and he is moving on with someone else. I explained that God is restoring our marriage and the emotions that he is going though is God speaking to him. I count this all joy because it a breakthrough after many months of no communication. Hallelujah, God is working it out. It’s just a matter of time. Prayer changes things.”  (New Jersey)

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His love endures forever. Psalm 136:1 As I type this testimony, I am in the home of a warm, loving Christian family. This time is special to me because all my life, I have longed for a family, a home that I felt safe and comfortable in. God has blessed me in my time of separation from my husband and children to be embraced by many Christian families and witness the way a Christ- centered marriage and home should be. I know these experiences were meant to ‘train’ me to be a godly wife so that WHEN my marriage is restored, I will know how to respect and honor my husband (something I failed at miserably before). Thank the Lord for He is good, He is preparing me for my destiny!”  (Texas)

“I thank You, Father for restoring my husband to You first before my marriage or family restoration. I attended Sunday service last week at a church I recently started attending. I usually attend service on Saturday. Unknown to me, my sister and her family saw my husband in the parking lot at this same service. I give God all the praise and glory for speaking into my husband’s heart. I’m not sure when or how long he has been attending church (we do not talk) but I’m truly thankful and grateful for the work that the Lord is doing in both of us. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.’  Ezekiel 26:36-37.” (Texas)

“Praise be to God. I love this God we serve. I submit this testimony to give thanks to God for the love He has poured into my heart for my husband and other souls who do not know Christ. I am convinced that no one can separate me from the love of Christ and there is absolutely nothing Satan can do to destroy my marriage. God has allowed this period in my life and I am grateful for it because while my husband is in the far country, I devote my time to seeking God. I understand just how much a soul is important to God and through it all I pray that my husband may be redeemed through the saving grace of Jesus Christ. I pray that as I grow in the knowledge of God, my husband too may grow and soon we shall fellowship together. Standers, don’t be discouraged, have faith and stand firm, God will restore your marriage, He is faithful and true to His Word. Trust in the Lord. Roman 5:5.”  (Swaziland)

And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.  Romans 5:5

“My Marine son was home on leave and I had a family dinner. We had discussed inviting his dad. I told him if he wanted his dad there he would need to do the inviting. He didn’t. His dad and I are not permitted to have contact per the OW. After dinner we had a discussion about my health and why the God that I love would allow me to endure a severe car accident that has kept me from working for seven months and then an eight-day hospital stay recently. The bottom line is God hasn’t answered their prayers immediately about all our family is going through, so God does not answer prayer. My rebuttal: I asked, ‘How many years has your dad worked Sundays?’ They said ten. I told them I’ve been praying for their dad’s schedule to change to free his Sunday mornings, so he can attend church. For a little over two months he has not worked Sunday morning. God is preparing us for restoration. PRAISE GOD!”  (Pennsylvania)

“It’s not possible for things to be unfolding in this loving, beautiful way, all the damage and wreckage vanishing? And yet it’s the case. For several years my husband was involved with the OW. Standing for years transformed me. I wouldn’t take back one day. I found Jesus. Maybe the heart of standing is bearing the ongoing desolate moments, day after day, when you feel you matter least. I think when we feel most alone and forgotten, if we bear it with love, constantly give it to God and praying for our spouse, Satan recoils, runs from that humility. God showers graces, and strongholds are broken. All I know is, my husband did not want me, or our life. For years. He wanted her, and his freedom. And now it’s the opposite. His pushing all limits ran its course. He now only wants God, me, and his kids. He’s so grateful I didn’t give up, is moving home, with love and hope. It’s a miracle. I thank God.”  (Canada)

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.  Galatians 6:9
God bless,
