“For many months my husband was gone. I went from feeling broken and hopeless to feeling strong and trusting God. My prayer over the long months was that God re-create my marriage; completely make it over. What I realized is that God was making me over. The change to come was happening in me first. I went to another level in my faith. I declared war on the kingdom of darkness. Satan is my enemy, not my husband. I learned to do battle in the spirit realm with prayer and speaking the Word of God over my situation all day every day. I set my mind on God and I let go. I let it all go – the worry, doubt, and accusations. I asked God to help me focus on Him and He was delighted that I asked. When I became most comfortable walking by faith and not by sight, my husband came home with a new mind and a greater hunger for God’s Word and way. I praise God for a brand new man of God and a brand new marriage! Praise God! Today I continue walking by faith!”  (Florida) (posted 9/25/2017)
“All praise and glory to our Lord God, He who sits on the throne. He is faithful standers. At church we decided to take time and go to the mountainside to pray like Jesus did in Luke 6:12. One of the things I asked God was that my husband would be more open to share how he feels. When we got down the mountain, I turned on my phone to find a text from my husband declaring how excited he is for the new member of the family coming soon as I am 37 weeks. Standers, God is faithful if You will seek Him and more so BELIEVE. Faith is the key, never ever lose hope. Will you be that persistent widow in Luke 18 and not give God any rest? God will not turn a blind eye to persistent prayer. Praying for you all standers. We serve a mighty God. Thank You Jesus Christ for the gift of salvation.”  (Swaziland) (posted 9/25/2017)
“Praise Jesus, He did it! The morning He brought my beloved spouse home the Lord gave me Daniel 6:26-27. As I look back, I see clearly how God’s timing is perfect. He has good things He wants to do in us and through us to prepare us on this restoration journey for His best. Jesus is real, He hears our pain and cries. He truly is the God of the impossible and He is Love who loves us very much. Many, many months ago the enemy came into our marriage like a tornado, stronger than ever before, to try to rip us apart, but God’s steadfast love and grace were greater to fulfill His promises. Jesus brought me to my knees in repentance, refined me, healed me, showed me how to put Him as Lord of my life and what it really is to live the good victorious Christian life. To Jesus be all the glory forever.”  (California) (posted 9/25/2017)

“I am so grateful that God led me to Rejoice Marriage Ministries shortly after my spouse left. This has given me hope and encouragement for the past several months, especially on how to stand and reach out to the Lord. Although my spouse is not home yet, I am standing in faith and waiting on God’s perfect timing. God has answered me on several occasions that He will restore my marriage. In the meantime, God has given me so much: peace, joy, restored relationships with my in-laws. I would like to encourage all standers not to give up and put all your trust in the Lord. Nothing is impossible with God!”  (Singapore) (posted 9/25/2017)
“My wife and I are no longer living together and she is adamant that we are getting divorced. Though she has been saying this for nearly a year now, she has yet to follow through. Twice recently she has set dates for us to fill out dissolution papers and twice she has canceled. I praise God for answering my prayers that the divorce would not come to fruition and the day when we would fill out papers would continue to get pushed back. Even if the divorce does happen someday, however, I will still trust and praise God.”  (Kansas) (posted 9/25/2017)
“The Lord sent me flowers! I was on a walk a few days ago and I was praying about how lonely I felt and how much I missed my husband’s love and embrace. I said I was thankful that in this time the Lord is my husband. I also said, ‘How amazing would it be if You sent me flowers God!’ About 20 minutes later on my way back home, I look down at a bush and there is a bouquet of store bought flowers! Just laying there! I heard Father God say, ‘Here are your flowers. I love you so much!” I grabbed the flowers and felt the love I had been needing. How amazing is it in this time of sometimes complete loneliness and feeling an empty ‘love tank,’ the Lord can be gentle enough to send you just what you need! Keep standing! Keep believing in the goodness and pleasing will of our Lord!”  (Tennessee) (posted 9/25/2017)
“All praises and glory to God. God answered prayer in removing the OP from my work. We work at the same job. I did not look her up on the corporate directory to confirm, as Charlyne said, ‘Don’t dig in the trash.’ I thought she was on leave, but my son shared this weekend she is no longer working at my job and she’ll be starting a new job this week. I was praising and singing to God nonstop. My son was a bit disappointed so I asked him why as he should be praising God. My son said he wanted God to remove the OP from his dad’s life permanently. I said in God’s perfect timing He will. Now we praise God for little things to get to the big things and God remove the OP and restore our family. We prayed. My son thanked God for removing the OP and that this would be the start in opening communication between his dad and me. What a mighty God we serve!”  (Arizona) (posted 9/25/2017)
“My husband has moved out after some years in adultery, but God. I thank God for this ministry as so many things Bob said in his books I can see in my own life. God sent me to you to prepare me for what was sure to come and I thank Him. He knows the future path for us all. Please just continue to trust Him, because what He does for others He will surely do for you. He had on church shoes, Hallelujah. He took with him so many memories, Hallelujah. I know my God speaks, Hallelujah.”  (Alabama) (posted 9/25/2017)
“I had to stop and praise God and give Him the glory for this past week. My husband left some time ago and filed for divorce. I have been standing for our marriage. When he left, the children began praying that we could go on another family vacation together. I saw no way for this to be possible, but I would pray with our kids for this, though it felt trivial at times with what was happening in our lives. Well we just returned from a quick three-day vacation that my husband joined us on! We took our kids to Disneyland and also to the beach where we got engaged years ago. I have mentioned this ministry to my husband and on our drive I told him how people always see Swift trucks and feel like they’re signs from God. I told him I had only ever seen one. After that, my husband started calling out every Swift truck he saw, 21 altogether that he spotted on our trip. And as we drove over the grapevine, the song ‘Worn’ played by Tenth Avenue North and I spotted my first Covenant Transport truck.”  (California) (posted 9/25/2017)
“My husband has been home for several months, praise the Lord. His return happened exactly how the Holy Spirit said. So I know he is home for good. However the enemy has increased the attacks. My husband came home to work on mending things but in the same breath, less than a week back, wanted me to agree to us divorcing so he could move on with his life. He has since started building what he believes is his house, but by faith I declare that the home is for our family. In the natural, things could not be worse. Communication is zero, as well as zero intimacy. As standers, we have to continue to put our hope in the Most High. He has the answer and will never fail us. Let us remember all the breakthroughs in the past and those that are on the way because as God’s children, we have to walk by faith and not by sight. Our situations have already changed. Let as speak it into existence. Amen.”  (Trinidad and Tobago) (posted 9/25/2017)
“A year ago my covenant spouse proposed to the OW with plans to marry this fall. The plan was to board a cruise ship where they would get married. Initially, I was so upset and bothered at this news, but was quickly reminded of God’s promise of restoration to me. The cruise has now been cancelled because of a devastating storm. I pray for the safety of all in the path of this storm. I did pray for God to stop this wedding, but never imagined this would be what would stop it.”  (Georgia) (posted 9/25/2017)
“I am giving thanks to my God out of bitter sweetness right now. Today, my returned prodigal, now turned in-home prodigal again, has announced that he is moving out in two weeks. Last week, he announced that he wants a divorce and is saying it was a mistake that he came back after being home for a couple of years. So I am devastated. But I sing praises to God because over the past few years, He has allowed me to witness how real He is by causing miracles and blessings to happen before and after my husband came back. I’ve been blessed to witness my husband’s heart being softened all the way to God bringing him home. I’ve been blessed to have friends and family witness God’s hand at work. I choose to think on these things and celebrate what God has done. I thank Him with all my heart. And if He chooses to not fully restore my marriage, I am blessed to have witnessed what He has done and can do. My heart hurts, but I still sing praises to my God. Thank You, Lord. Thank You, Jesus.”  (Georgia) (posted 9/25/2017)

“PTL, God is moving in my marriage. We separated a few months ago. Things looked hopeless. My wife said she didn’t want to be with me anymore and to move on, but God. My wife drove to see me this weekend and we had a great visit. She said she loves me and wants our marriage to work. We are seeking counseling and staying separated until God’s perfect timing. What changed things was when I fully surrendered my marriage to God and quit trying to fix it on my own. So many of my prayers have been being answered. Please pray for me as I know it’s not over yet and there is still lots of work to do.”  (Michigan) (posted 9/25/2017)

“I want to share a testimony from a little girl in our Sunday School. I hope this will encourage someone to continue to pray and fast and not give up. This girl encourages me as she knew nothing about me or my situation. I’ve been separated from my husband for a few years and divorced for several months. The teaching was on focusing our eyes on Jesus when we face a storm. This little girl came up to me afterwards and told me. ‘Do you want to hear what God did for my family?’  I said yes. And then she said, ‘My mom and dad got divorced, but now they are back together because I focused my eyes on Jesus.’”  (Idaho) (posted 9/18/2017)
“Thank You, God for complete restoration and renewal of my marriage. My husband left me for the OW after he confessed that he had been having an affair. He continued saying that they even had had a non-covenant child together who was the same age as our own youngest son. Despite this, I knew straight away that I wanted to stand for my marriage. By the grace of God, my husband continued to help support me and our two children and would visit often. He even confessed to me that he was still in love with me despite living with the OW. Over the months, we became friends again and after many months of him living with one foot in the far country he finally came home. I knew he would as throughout this season God gave me Genesis 2:24. The devil is a liar and no matter what weapons he throws against me they will never prosper. I know in time God will work things out with his other son and my family, but until that time I will praise God for His goodness and mercy. Standers, don’t give up. God is good.”  (United Kingdom) (posted 9/18/2017)

“It has been a few years since my husband and I separated. The divorce was granted several months ago, but no papers have been signed or finalized. After the divorce being granted, I lost faith. I thought it was over. That was until I opened my eyes to see that God has been at work all along. My husband’s family and I parted when my husband and I separated. But they have included me and my children in so much just over the last week. My mother-in-law telling me how I have done so well and have grown as a person. Getting to see and talk to my brother-in-law, whom I love so much! All acts of God! Communication between my husband and me is still very slim, but I know in God’s time that will change too. To see my husband and his family’s names all in my inbox with all kind words, has been such a gift. At the beginning, God gave me Exodus 14:14. God will fight FOR ME! And He HAS! He has mended my husband’s family and me, and in time, He’ll mend us too! Praise God!”  (Kentucky) (posted 9/18/2017)
“I was at my lowest point. I read Luke 18:9-18 about the Pharisee and the tax collector who went home justified rather than the Pharisee. It struck me that I was acting like the Pharisee as I told God I tithe, fast and pray unlike my in-home prodigal who went on a holiday trip with the OW. I received God’s peace after I repented. I was able to praise God and not be offended. With my own strength, I knew I couldn’t do it. With His strength, I truly am able to wait forever if that is what God wants in my life. It sounds hard at first, but when I received this revelation from God, I immediately received His peace and can joyfully let go of all offences, hurt and pain. Remember standers, don’t fall into becoming the Pharisee, but know we are all sinners who one way or another need God’s mercy and grace. Trust God and believe that He is good and He is in control of all things. Be blessed and live for Him.”  (Singapore) (posted 9/18/2017)
“The Lord is working on the other side of my ‘mole hill.’ It still boggles the mind how much faith and warfare it takes for me to fix my eyes on this good. It would be just as easy to sigh and look at what hasn’t happened and miss completely what is happening. I am thanking Him and praising Him – all glory to Him. What I am seeing as far as my beloved’s heart – he is turning towards reconciling with our children – it is real. The prayers to break shame and guilt that have enslaved him are being answered. He is stepping out of his prison of passivity and pursuing face-to-face apologies to our three adult children. I am rejoicing and thanking Him. We must exercise these patterns of praise while we wait for the fullness of a restored marriage.”  (Texas) (posted 9/18/2017)
“Praise the one true God, the God of all creation. We have been separated for some time. For the last few months, my husband has cut off communication, but God is doing a new thing within me. I now communicate with God like never before and He has sent a woman whose spouse went off to the far country to help. God is showing me all things are working together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28 KJV). No matter what it looks like, I am standing on God’s promises that my husband is coming home. Standers, continue to pray and believe God. God is sending His angels to rescue and lead our spouses home. Hallelujah.”  (New Jersey) (posted 9/18/2017)
“My prodigal sent me a message stating that the divorce is going ahead and I can expect my court summons soon. I cried out to God the whole day. The next morning, I received my summons for court. The peace of God came over me and He gave me the story of Jairus in Mark 5:21-42. I realized that story wouldn’t even be in the Bible if Jesus rushed to the aid of that girl. Jesus took His time, the girl died and He awoke her from death. My marriage is the same; the story of a dead divorced marriage will glorify God greater when He finally resurrects it. Praise be to God and His very mysterious ways.”  (South Africa) (posted 9/18/2017)
“I promised God that I would share my testimony if He gave me a glimpse of what He’s doing for me and my marriage. I prayed four days ago asking God to just let me see a glimpse if He still wanted me to stand. Later that evening, my husband not only came to the house, he even talked with me a bit. Although it wasn’t pleasant, it was an opportunity for me to display God’s love. I thank God for this communication, because it had been a long time since I spoke with him. The next day there was a storm, power was out. He came home for a few minutes and that was even more pleasant. Here’s the best part! I received a text message two nights later with a picture of a new car and motorcycle which he has purchased for me. Says he was waiting for our anniversary to give it to me. My suddenly hasn’t happened yet, but it’s near! I feel it! Nothing is impossible for God! Believe, remain faithful in the Word and love through the hurt. Don’t give up standers.”  (Tennessee) (posted 9/18/2017)
Luke 1:45 (GW) – ‘You are blessed for believing that the Lord would keep his promise to you.’ Dear loved ones, my cousin called to tell me that my aunt died. While I was on the call, my former husband sent me a text. He said he was driving around in the town that we both had spent time in. He asked if I ever wished things could be different. I prayed for strength and guidance from the Heavenly Father as to how to respond. The Lord put it on my heart to see him as Jesus sees him. The Lord reminded me that this upcoming week would be our first date anniversary which was years ago. Emotions were high, but He showed me in my heart to keep looking to Him. In the text, my former husband asked me if it would be okay for him to call me. We had not spoken with or seen each other in years. I had no idea where he was or anything about him. I only knew to keep praying for the salvation of his soul, protection from evil and his heart to be softened. We talked for over two hours. God is working! PTL!”  (Wyoming) (posted 9/18/2017)
“I have been having a hard time continuously fighting for my marriage. I wanted to give up several times. My husband and I haven’t talked in months. God has been speaking to me about my marriage. Today’s sermon was about hope and trusting God to change that spouse who everyone says won’t change. I’ve also been having dreams about my husband and his change. I’m still standing and trusting God to do the impossible.” (Georgia) (posted 9/18/2017)
“God has been faithful to me through the years. I was refusing to give up long before I knew about RMM and only found it after my husband finally followed through with his years of threats of leaving. God has given me the gift of faith and I know He will do what He has promised to do – restore my husband’s faith and bring him home! I have to constantly remind myself that ‘the battle is the Lord’s’ not mine. I want so desperately at times to make something happen, but then I hear that still small voice telling me to, ‘Wait! Give Me a chance to work. You’re not ready yet. He is not ready yet.’ I am learning to allow God to show up and it is bringing such blessing to my spiritual life. It hurts when I focus on what I don’t have with my husband. But when I focus on how much I have grown through this process, I find myself saying, ‘Thank You, God! You are making all things new.’ My hope is in the Lord!”  (North Carolina) (posted 9/18/2017)
“God has been good to me even though I don’t deserve it. Every time I’d give up or get angry at God, He’d still pursue me and give me many chances. I thank God because my husband doesn’t want a divorce even when I’d bring it up or try to force him to because I’m tired of waiting. My husband started asking me to pray for him. Before, he used to get mad when I mentioned Christianity or me praying for him. My husband had gotten into some Satanic cult activities. I was afraid for him and us. He even got tattoos of their symbols. This morning, my husband shocked me. He sent me a video of a pastor preaching against the people who are in the same cult as him and my husband agreed with the pastor. Isn’t God good? I’ve been praying that God open my husband’s spiritual eyes and bring him to his senses. My suddenly hasn’t happened yet, but I know God is working on the other side of the mountain and my restoration is closer than I think. God is able and good. Do not give up! Be blessed.”  (Virginia) (posted 9/18/2017)
“I eagerly await the day I can proclaim to the world God’s sovereignty in the restoration of our marriage! We have been separated for a couple years now. I miss him every day, but the nights are worse! I know God is working on his heart because he is now depressed. He shared with my daughter that he doesn’t know if he can even love another woman…. if he is even capable! I know that God has this because of the vow we made on our wedding day. He is trying to run from his love for me. Praise Jesus, for not allowing this to happen. My husband could never tell me or others that he didn’t love me. even when I asked him face to face in the past. Love always wins, because God is love and God always wins! So, I sit patiently with Jesus every morning holding onto Him! I await the day I can scream to the world, especially our three daughters, God did it!”  (Kentucky) (posted 9/18/2017)

“I felt it impressed upon me to share my favorite ‘God Wink’ as my friend and I call them (things He gives us to show that He is listening and cares). After I took a new part time position, I started to see Swift trucks. Where I was in Colorado, Covenant trucks aren't common. I remember driving home thinking it would be cool to see one. The next day, a member of my church called me to see if I would help on a job site. As we were headed out there, I remember passing a truck stop and there in front of me was a Covenant Transport truck. A little further up, there were about eight of them, unloaded and parked. When we drove back the same route later that evening, all of those trailers were gone or blocked from sight. I didn't take it as a sign that anything would happen, but rather God saying ‘I do hear you.’ God orchestrated it perfectly to just let me see a truck. I've had a lot of God Wink stories, but this is my favorite.”  (Colorado) (posted 9/18/2017)
‘Look to the nations and watch- and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told.’ Habakkuk 1:5 Today, as I wait for God's promise of restoration to be fulfilled, I praise the Lord as He his faithful. my stand, the Lord has held me up when everything seemed dark and impossible. But God! He has given me so many rhema words just when I needed them. And some months ago the Lord gave me a dream that is so clear to me about the restoration of my marriage. In the dream, there was a party going on in a lovely house, and my husband called me and told me he is running late, but he will be home soon. I vividly remember the cake had the word ‘Gracious’ on it! Grace has really been the hardest lesson for me to learn. Two days ago, I got a word that the Lord’s promise will not delay and my husband will be home soon. Thank You Lord!”  (Kenya) (posted 9/18/2017)
“My husband and I have been separated for some time now. Our circumstances were hopeless. But God! My husband and I just celebrated our anniversary. He came to my house and brought me a the most thoughtful gift. The card said that he is looking forward to celebrating more anniversaries with me! Praise God! This is nothing short of a miracle. He even goes to church with me and our son every Sunday, when he hadn’t been in years. I give God all the glory. Only He could have softened my heart and my husband’s heart to allow for marriage restoration. Do not give up! You will be amazed at what our God is doing and will reveal in His perfect timing.”  (California) (posted 9/15/2017)
“How not to honor the One who made the Heavens and the Earth. For nothing is impossible with God. Last year my divorce was final. Everything was terrible for me, as my husband showed up in every place with the OW. I said in my heart, I couldn’t keep going, but God kept saying to me: ‘Didn’t I tell you that if you believed, you will see my glory?’ And also, all of the devotionals of sister Charlyne, talking to me each day. My suddenly happened, my husband called me and said the nightmare is over. He began to come and call on a regular basis, even three times a day. We are not together yet, but we go out every day, and he has even gone to church with me and my son. We praise God since He has heard our prayers, and I know He will do the rest. Sister Charlyne, your words, as God’s Word comes to my mind, when Satan wants something God doesn’t want. God bless you all, and let’s keep trusting the Only God.”  (Nicaragua) (posted 9/15/2017)

“My husband and I had to sign our divorce papers on separate days this week. On the day he was to sign the papers, the Lord woke me up with the reference 2 Chronicles 20:15-17 ringing in my mind. I don’t know these verses by heart so I looked them up and was so encouraged to be reminded again of how God is fighting this battle for me and that I’m not to be afraid or discouraged. The day I had to sign, I had so much peace and faith knowing that despite being legally divorced, God knows my heart and is working all of this mess into something beautiful. He has called me to stand and has promised marriage restoration despite impossible circumstances. I am so thankful to the Lord for this hideous trial, I am growing, healing and being refined. Now I have so much more empathy and compassion for the hurting and broken. My relationship with the Lord is growing so much. I am learning not just in my head, but in my heart, that truly God is the only one who can satisfy me.”  (France) (posted 9/15/2017)
“Today is my birthday. God has displayed His faithfulness throughout this month. I’m at peace and it is all because of Christ my Savior. My mother-in-law called to wish me well, she spoke blessings over me. Above all, my husband came over to wish me happy birthday. I was at worship team rehearsal which upset him. I was so grateful when he called back to let me know why he came and wished me well. Praise the Lord for improved friendship. We spoke so well about our current financial challenges without arguing. God gave me the tongue of the learned and I was able to speak with wisdom in asking him to trust and believe with me in this one issue that God will come through and our children will make their school fee payment. Nothing is too hard for my God. He is able.”  (South Africa) (posted 9/15/2017)
“PTL, He is working in my husband’s life! I have been standing for several years and was beginning to lose hope. I knew that God was talking to my husband, but he wasn’t listening. My husband actually came home a year ago, but he left again after six months. We got a chance recently to talk and even though he started the conversation with saying that we weren’t getting back together, at the end of the conversation he said that he hadn’t opened up like that in a long time. He has been distant since then, but just today he called me and said he just wanted to check and see how I was doing. I know that God is still working on him and me, but it has put new hope in me!”  (California) (posted 9/15/2017)
“Recently, I sought God for the reason for the lack of consistent progress in my restoration. That’s when He reminded me of this verse: Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. Romans 13:1-2 Though I was ignorant to my disobedience, the Lord also used Bob’s book, ‘The Saved Seat,’ to confirm how until court orders are LEGALLY reversed, we must obey them fully, or suffer the consequences. I share this testimony in hopes that if others have found themselves in an unusually LONG restoration journey, that they might seek the Lord to see if in fact, they are following the often dreaded and ignored court orders that were put in place when they divorced. It could be the key to your breakthrough!”  (Texas) (posted 9/15/2017)
“Last weekend, my husband made the OW move out of his house. Praise God! Our children told me; he has not. I know that Satan is not done, and my husband isn’t coming home yet. I knew their relationship has been filled with strife and chaos, and I was expecting this, but I believed it would be a long time from now. Our son is concerned the OW will be moving back in, and I told our kids to not be surprised if they work it out and she does. However, God is moving mightily and it is just a matter of time before her removal from my husband’s life is permanent. All glory to God! He is working, though we may not see it. He is fighting for my husband and our marriage, though things have looked bad for a long time. He is working on behalf of us all. We must never give up on our God!”  (Oklahoma) (posted 9/15/2017)
“I thank my Lord Jesus Christ for showing up in my life at a time when my world was turned upside down. My husband felt our marriage was over, he was done trying to fix something that was broken. My thoughts were completely fogged by anger, bitterness, sadness and jealousy. How can my life ever be the same? I found peace in my Lord our God. I praise Him for rescuing me. I felt a great desire and a gravitational pull to want to get to know God, to ask for forgiveness for all the wrong I’ve done, for not allowing Him to be the center of my life. I need Jesus to take over of my life, I need Him to show me the way. I must learn to let go and give it up to the Lord. Once I do that, everything will fall into place. Praise the Lord for His merciful love and compassion. I declare my husband will come home, in God’s perfect timing.”  (Texas) (posted 9/15/2017)
“Praise the Lord! Believe in His promises, He is faithful and He does not lie. Please hang on and lean into Jesus He will come through for you. My spouse was gone many years, on the verge of a non-covenant marriage. Then they broke up. Only God. Continue fasting and praying no matter what is thrown at you. He took me through my circumstances including the death of my mother and divorce. Not around or over like we desire. It is better that way, just remember that. I prayed for no divorce and it still happened. Maybe your spouse will remarry, but don’t give up! The Lord has a plan just perfect for your situation. Hang on and never give up! His thoughts are higher than ours. My spouse isn’t home yet so I ask for continued prayers as I pray for you. May God bless you and your family!”  (Nebraska) (posted 9/15/2017)
“My husband moved out a few months ago and he travels a lot for work. I live in Houston and was so concerned about having to prepare for and face Hurricane Harvey alone with no family members (I don’t have any children). I never imagined being so terrified – the city was being ravaged by floods for four days. But I kept praying and having faith that God would protect me and never leave me. I was disappointed that my husband didn’t call as much as I thought he would, but I am happy to testify that at no time during the storm was there any standing water near our house and there was minimal damage done to our property. No evil befell my dwelling! Hallelujah! All thanks and glory goes to God. Standers, even though we must sometimes unfairly face terrifying circumstances by ourselves, just know God will never leave you and never forsake you. Keep your eyes on Him only and He will perform great miracles! Keep praying and believing- He will do it! Keep praying for me – I’m praying for you!”  (Texas) (posted 9/15/2017)
“My husband left me and our two baby boys some time ago. But, by the power of God, we are still married as our court date keeps getting moved back. Since my husband left, I’ve been fasting and praying that God would deliver him from the bondage of sins and turn his heart of stone into a heart of flesh. After standing firmly for over a year, I lost all hope and threw the towel in a week ago. Satan deceived me into thinking that it wasn’t in God’s will to restore my marriage. However, two days ago, I went back into my prayer closet, cried out to God, and begged Him to give me a sign if He wanted me to keep standing for my marriage. Just two hours later, while I was out picking up dinner, God sent me a Covenant Transport truck. Living in South Carolina, I’ve NEVER seen a Covenant truck before, so I knew this was an answered prayer. It was an undeniable sign from God that He WILL restore my marriage in HIS perfect timing if I run with perseverance the race marked out for me (Hebrews 12:1).  (South Carolina) (posted 9/15/2017)
“My wife left me some time ago and I received the petition for divorce. I held on to God in prayer, fasting and reading the Word. The Lord used this trial to get me to submit and serve Him completely. The Lord spoke to me to start ministering at our local hospital to the sick. In obedience, I started to go to the hospital to minister and lead people to the Lord. This has brought so much joy to me. I have seen people delivered from demonic bondages, I saw the lame getting healed, miracles have happened. As I type this, I just came back from praying for a man who is in a coma and now the Lord has given me another task. I will be crossing the border into our neighboring country to go pray for a woman who has been in bondage. The attorney called to say the divorce will be made final this week. I still stand on the Word of God, waiting for my own miracle. Joshua 1:9. I want to encourage all standers, keep standing, keep going, serve the Lord even in this time.”  (South Africa) (posted 9/15/2017)
“How not to honor the One who made the Heavens and the Earth. For nothing is impossible with God. Last year my divorce was final. Everything was terrible for me, as my husband showed up in every place with the OW. I said in my heart, I couldn’t keep going, but God kept saying to me: ‘Didn’t I tell you that if you believed, you will see my glory?’ And also, all of the devotionals of sister Charlyne, talking to me each day. My suddenly happened, my husband called me and said the nightmare is over. He began to come and call on a regular basis, even three times a day. We are not together yet, but we go out every day, and he has even gone to church with me and my son. We praise God since He has heard our prayers, and I know He will do the rest. Sister Charlyne, your words, as God’s Word comes to my mind, when Satan wants something God doesn’t want. God bless you all, and let’s keep trusting the Only God.”  (Nicaragua) (posted 9/15/2017)
“I want to give thanks to God. After a separation of several months, my prodigal husband returned home. Our marriage is now restored after what would seem in the natural to have been an impossible restoration, only a miracle. Thank you for all the daily devotions. You were a huge pillar of strength during this difficult time. To all standers out there, KEEP THE FAITH. God is still in the business of marriage restoration. God’s timing is always right. When the enemy comes to you like a flood to destroy your marriage, keep standing for your prodigal spouse against all odd as God will raise up a standard. God did it for me and He will do it for you. It is amazing how God can turn everything around for us. The devil tried to destroy my marriage, but God used our brokenness to turn things around for the better. God’s plans are greater than He who is in the world. He turns our sorrow into joy. Let’s Praise God in all our difficult situations. He alone is our hope and strength.”  (United Kingdom) (posted 8/28/2017)
“I’ve been standing for a few years now and God has finally answered. Before I didn’t know better, I had been praying to God to make my husband love me and not the OW. Eventually my prayer changed to ‘God please bring my husband back to You,’ because I know that if my husband seeks God then everything will fall into place. I received a text from my husband saying he’s sorry for ripping our family apart and he wants another chance. The OW is pregnant by my husband but, I’m trusting in God for strength and a forgiving heart. To all the women and men standing for their marriage…. Keep the faith. God is good.”  (Trinidad and Tobago) (posted 8/28/2017)
“Praise God! My suddenly happened yesterday! After a few years of separation, our family is restored. I know we still have a long road ahead of us, but God will continue to repair and restore. Joel 2:25 – ‘I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten.’ Thank you for your daily emails that I continue to read. They definitely help when the enemy is attacking and standing becomes difficult!”  (California) (posted 8/28/2017)
