2018 BIBLE READING CALENDAR
We encourage people praying for marriage restoration to carry this booklet in their Bible, where they will be reminded often to meditate on God’s Word.

We believe all the answers to your marriage problems are found in God’s Holy Word. This beautiful calendar gives you daily readings and at year’s end you will have read through the Old Testament once, the New Testament twice, Psalms twice and Proverbs 12 times. Our standers love the discipline in reading the Bible daily as fast or as slow as you want.

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

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.  Psalm 100:4-5

“I’ve been standing for my marriage for many months. I’m like all other standers with peaks and valleys in my marriage circumstance. I want to share how amazing God is: He has removed my negative friends and has surrounded me with friends who have seen God restore their marriages (friends I had no idea went through hell and back). God has used these friends/marriages to encourage me and to show me He is working on the other side of the mountain. PTL! ‘Accept discipline and counsel, for there are many plans in man’s heart but the counsel of the Lord will stand.’ This Bible verse from Proverbs 19 has taught me that no matter what I’m seeing, or my spouse is telling me, the Lord’s plans are BIGGER and BETTER, and they will stand!”  (California)

Listen to counsel and receive instruction, That you may be wise in your latter days.  There are many plans in a man’s heart, Nevertheless the Lord’s counsel—that will stand.  Proverbs 19:20-21 (NKJV)

“I can smile and have peace and joy in my life. I’ve heard the question before: ‘What is the one thing I desire the most in my life right now?’ The answer: ‘If it’s not a closer relationship with God you need to check your priorities.’  At the onset of his leaving, the fear and panic and feelings of failure and abandonment definitely had my eyes on me and my situation and desire for immediate restoration. As I’ve learned disciplines of fasting and praying and seeking God, I am amazed at the peace in my life. I believe this peace affects my in-home prodigal and gives him hope that he may one day find that peace as well. I love him unconditionally, and serve God with abandon. I didn’t think joy at this time in my life would be possible, but I remember, God has the victory. I don’t know His timing, I don’t know what the victory looks like in the end, but I can choose to live in it now!”  (Alabama)

“PTL! This testimony is still a work in progress, but I’d like to share how grateful I am to our good Lord for hearing and answering our prayers. Several months ago, my husband left our house. He doesn’t visit, and communication is occasional. I prayed that he communicates with me often even if it’s only about our child. He did for a few days straight then went silent again. I prayed again that God will give us time to spend together. A few days later, out of the blue, he texted me and spent the day with me and our son. I will continue storming heaven with prayers every day. I know my suddenly will be happening soon. Standers, keep praying and fighting every day. We have an amazing God who listens and works behind the scenes for our marriages and family.”  (Philippines)

Your path led through the sea, your way through the mighty waters, though your footprints were not seen.  Psalm 77:19

“My husband and I separated months ago but we’ve been communicating about the kids and he has been supporting us fully. Two weeks ago, God told me to move away and let Him fight because this issue is bigger than I thought. I did that and started fighting through my gift of worship in church. Things got worse. I had lost hope and today a cousin told me that he had a dream about my husband repenting and saying he humbles himself and he needs God. It gave me so much hope that God is busy restoring. My husband is not home yet, but God has given me so many signs and dreams that my husband is on his way back. A pastor who doesn’t know me told me that my marriage will be a light to other marriages.”  (South Africa)

“PTL! I have been standing for a couple months now and really fought the negativity in my own mind. God has brought my spouse home once before, but I had become disobedient to God and he left me again. But God! God showed me about loving Him more and building myself up, and to completely submit to Him, resisting our true enemy. I had lost my ring my spouse gave me and was devastated. I prayed fervently I would find this ring, as this was given to me by my spouse and is so precious to me. I had looked all over and could not find it. But today as I am writing this, the ring showed up out of nowhere! Today is also my birthday and God delivered a wonderful gift. This is a sign that God is in control and He answers His children’s prayers. My man is coming home. Thank You, Jesus! Praise God!”  (Florida)

Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.  Ephesians 6:13 (NLT)

“Waiting in faith on the Lord’s perfect time. Thanksgiving and our anniversary are on same day this year. Praying and seeking Jesus every day to end this separation. l know He is working.”  (New York)

“I was introduced to RMM by a friend a few years ago but I was so deeply wounded I could not stand firm. Charlyne’s story of forgiveness and love based on 1 Corinthians 13 caught my attention more than ever before a month ago, and I did not look back. I felt the urge to forgive my husband and I did. A few days ago, Charlyne Cares was about making a phone call to our spouse. I was in fear of calling him because he has been so bitter with me as well, but I prayed and told God to show me if it was Him telling me to call. Yesterday I came across Isaiah 41:13, do not fear…. so, I was hanging on those words. To my amazement RMM posted lunch time testimonies that said, ‘Do not Fear’ your circumstances as you stand. I picked up the phone and my husband was so happy. We shared a lot, and to my surprise he said we were both prodigal sons! He told me he has been praying for our marriage. We are on the road to seeing each other soon and I thank God for breaking me and assuring me that He will be there for me.”  (Georgia)

For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.  Isaiah 41:13

“To God be the glory. My adult son told me his father had separated from the other person whom he had married last year. He was evasive talking about his father and so is my daughter. They are like the prodigal son’s brother, angry, and confused. They argued it is their dad’s responsibility to tell me and they weren’t waiting for this miracle. I walked floating on divine clouds, smiling, with eager gratefulness. My prayer partner and I prayed that night until we were tired. I’m praying for wisdom and patience, reading your books and Bob’s, avoiding mistakes for the day he talks to me and comes back home. The last word belongs to God for to Him be the glory.”  (Mexico)

“This is just a funny way of seeing how God does speak. Last night I asked my husband (divorced) to bring me some ketchup. He brought it this morning, however, it wasn’t ketchup. It was a pack of hot sauce that had ‘Marry Me’ on it. He didn’t realize that he purchased the wrong thing and what was written on it. I had a great laugh. Praise God.”  (Trinidad and Tobago)

“Recently, I lost faith and fear got me and I wondered if God was hearing me. I wanted to give up on my marriage. As I was in prayer about it, I received a text message. When I was done praying, I realized it was from an out-of-state phone number. It read, ‘God is always with you. Your family loves you and will always be there for you. You’re awesome, don’t forget. God is a blessing and He’s going to bless you in unexpected ways.’ It turned out to be a misdialed text to another person, but I just KNOW God used this person to get His message across to me with that text. Praise God, He definitely works in mysterious ways and knows how to get His message across.”  (Arizona)

“For God speaks again and again, though people do not recognize it.  He speaks in dreams, in visions of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they lie in their beds.”  Job 33:14-15 (NLT)
God bless,
