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

Who among you fears the Lord and obeys the word of his servant? Let the one who walks in the dark, who has no light, trust in the name of the Lord and rely on their God.  Isaiah 50:10

“I give glory to God because it has been exactly one year this Thanksgiving my husband just ‘showed up,’ asking about dinner and God had shown me that day to cook dinner ‘just in case’ he did show up. Since then, not only is our marriage finally on the right track, we are engaging as a couple in ministry things at church, and with other couples. Our home is out of foreclosure, finances are being restored. My husband is starting a new job, and I am on track to finish my degree after a two-year delay. In fact, I’ve missed the last couple of Bible studies in Pompano because of increased favor with work, but stay abreast through social media. I continue to pray for those still waiting for their miracle. Never, EVER look at circumstances no matter how awful. One second with your eyes off God will cause you days of misery. Be encouraged.”  (Florida)

Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done.  If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”  Matthew 21:21-22

“To God be the glory. He did not bring us this far to leave us. We have the victory in Jesus. I give God thanks for what He has done and is doing. With Him all things are possible. We must feel blessed to be selected to stand in the gap for those we love dearly. We must ask ourselves where would we be if it had not been for His grace. We have to get to the point of completely, ‘letting go and letting God.’ We are not always going to know where our spouses are or what they are doing. But God knows and that’s all that matters. God loves our mates more than we do and knows how to make us whole individually before He brings us back into a one flesh union. Time is our greatest enemy, but God is the greatest friend we can ever have. Be encouraged and read Psalm 62 and Deuteronomy 8. I believe something in God’s Word will speak to us. God is never late but always on time. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. Hold on.”  (Trinidad and Tobago)

Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him.  Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.  My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.  Psalm 62:5-8

“Isaiah 41:13 – ‘Do not fear.’  Last week my heart had a burden to call my husband and I was not sure if this was God’s calling. We had stopped communicating for so long when our battle intensified. Charlyne’s morning devotion was, ‘Would you call your spouse.’ I was still not confident and had fear of how he would react. Then the lunchtime testimonies highlighted ‘Do not be afraid.’ This confirmed that God had taken care of my fears and I went ahead and called my husband. Both of us were so humbled, and my husband was so happy. We have a pending court case, been separated for 10 years, OW and a child. Amazingly, we are now communicating so well with God’s love surrounding us. We have not met yet, but that’s where we are headed. Yesterday my husband confirmed that he felt so much love towards me, and talked so much on forgiveness. I praise God. Standers, don’t lose hope, God is the answer. Keep standing, He is able.”  (Georgia)

“Every time I want to give up there, is something in my inbox from RMM. The Word is powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword. I’m convinced that I’m supposed to stand for my prodigal to first repent and turn to God and His ways instead of the world’s and then suddenly our marriage will be restored.”  (Ohio)

“To God be all the glory. My prodigal has been gone for months and it’s been hard. I had a breakdown and found myself upset with God. I told God I wasn’t praying anymore, I was tired, and if He wanted me to keep going then He needed to show me that what I am praying for is worth it. I laid on my face in tears and thanked God and asked Him to forgive me. My husband came over and had dinner and played Monopoly as a family. After we put our child to bed, we were able to have a conversation about what we did wrong. I thank God that he does still love me and has spent time with me. He even called me this morning to tell me to have a good day. That may not seem like much to some, but I am able to add to my answered prayers. My husband went from hating me to showing me he still loves me. Keep praying, standing, being patient. God has already worked it out.”  (North Carolina)

Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!  Isaiah 30:18

“Yesterday I was reading the devotional shared by RMM, which encouraged standers to invite their spouse to Thanksgiving. I dismissed the thought because since my wife left several months ago, she has wanted no communication with me. Since she left, we have not had one conversation. However, the church daycare where we bring our daughters hosted a Thanksgiving lunch today, and I bought tickets for my older daughter and myself. I didn’t realize until today that my wife also bought tickets for herself and her mother, knowing that I had already purchased tickets and was planning to be there. When I first arrived it was awkward for us, but we had a nice lunch, and it was the first time we talked in many months. It is a small step, but I’m giving glory to God. I was able to sow seeds of love and forgiveness, and I know God will continue to transform her heart and restore my family in His time.”  (Florida)

“I give God all glory and praise. My husband is not yet home but since I started my journey with God our relationship has done a 180. We have a better co-parenting system and our communication has opened. He is now even asking our daughters to pass the phone to me and we have small chats and laugh. He still says comments insinuating divorce, but I have mastered the zipped lips (long time coming). Every time I grow weary and want to give up, my sign of God talking to me to keep going is religious shirts. I have never paid attention to them before, but it never fails; I see a shirt with an Ephesians chapter or some form of cute handmade Christian shirt that I see a customer wearing or when I’m out and about. Don’t give up standers!”  (Texas)

The Lord confides in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known to them.  My eyes are ever on the Lord, for only he will release my feet from the snare.  Psalm 25:14-15

“My partner became my in-home prodigal several months ago. I discovered RMM and have been praying and fasting fervently. My relationship is far from restored but I feel the need to praise God because a few days ago he revealed why he had so much anger in his heart for me and what damaged our relationship. He even cried a little. I was able to tell him that I was praying for his deliverance and that I’m praying him home. I told him that nothing is too hard for my Lord. PTL for those revelations because now I can focus on those specific situations and pray on them. This shows me that God is indeed working on the other side of the mountain. I know there are still trials ahead, but I try to think of when we’ll be together. Please pray for my restoration like I pray every day for all standers around the world and for all prodigals returning home to their loved ones. I pray I’ll be back soon to tell you that we are on our way to restoration. PTL.  (Seychelles)

“I have waited several months to share my testimony. Believe me when I tell you that he did everything under the sun to hurt me. There was so much more ugliness. It was the most trying and devastating time of my life. I simply pleaded and begged God and cried my heart out. When I understood there was something I needed to learn from this, I just turned quiet and listened to God. I stopped begging, bargaining and pleading, then suddenly everything changed. My husband started coming around and I didn’t beg him either. I trusted Jesus. I knew in my heart I needed to give God His place and when I did, my marriage was restored. I pray for you also.”  (Texas)

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.  Matthew 6:33 (KJV)
