“I want to praise God for encouraging me to never give up even after many, many years of separation. Through a series of ‘Godincidences,’ my prodigal is home and we are facing together the consequences of his many years in the far country. God gave me Psalm 92:6-7 right before he came home. Never, ever give up! If God could bring my husband home, He can do anything! It took many years but God’s love carried me along. I thank you Lord, RMM, and all standers who have shared their testimonies that gave me hope. To God be the glory!”  (California) (posted 3/20/2017)
“After many years, my in-home prodigal has been home full time for a few months. It has been a very slow restoration process with several attempts by the OW to get my husband to come back to her, but God is faithful and has kept him home. There were so many times over the years I wanted to quit, but God wouldn’t let me and would give me encouragement when I needed it the most. God has answered many prayers and is working on my prodigal’s heart, putting laborers in his path which I pray all the time. It is harder at times when our prodigals return but I am trusting God to complete His purpose in our lives and marriage. Never, never, never give up. God is moving and working all things together for our good. Praise His name!”  (New York) (posted 3/20/2017)

“Praise the Lord. He has shown me the price tag to follow Him for my husband and marriage. In Matthew 8:19-20, a scribe tells Jesus he wants follow Him, to be a disciple. But Jesus responds, ‘Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.’ The cost for the scribe to follow Him is giving up his home and everything. And He’s telling me, my cost to follow Him is this: I’m not just praying for my husband’s salvation and return home. I must put God first then pray for my spouse’s salvation, that’s a given. But my cost? Not letting go but surrendering my marriage to Him. Only then will I get it back. Satan didn’t just take my marriage, I lost it. God wasn’t first in all parts of my world and until He is, I’ll live alone waiting for my husband’s return. He must have control of me, my life, and everything I have. But I never thought about voluntarily giving up my marriage to get it back. Maybe I’m nuts. But thank You Jesus! It makes total sense to me.”  (Washington) (posted 3/20/2017)
“I have been standing for many months, and it has seemed like a lifetime. Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.  2 Corinthians 2:14 (KJV). My prodigal called me today to tell me how he was studying the church member guide and he came across the topic of forgiveness and asked me to forgive him. He also said that he would like to go out to celebrate his birthday and our anniversary. Hallelujah, my prodigal is on his way home. Not only is God sending him home, but God is going to turn our mess into a ministry for God’s glory. Standers, keep standing; your prodigal is on his way home. God bless you and trust in God.”  (New Jersey) (posted 3/20/2017)
“I’ve been standing for our marriage for several months. My marriage has been on a slow recovery from all of our marriage problems. Today, I’m pleased to announce, my husband surprised me with a phone call at work to tell me that he loved me. This was music to my ears. I’ve been waiting for him to say he loved me. Thank You, Lord for hearing my prayers. I remind myself every morning with a Bible verse. Galatians 6:9 (KJV) – And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. I will continue to feed my family/marriage crops one day at a time.”  (North Carolina) (posted 3/20/2017)
“I’m so thankful for this ministry and how I see the Lord is using me to change hearts in my church. A woman at church told me her son’s wife left him for another man and took the kids. I gave her my number and he called me later that night. I literally felt like Charlyne Steinkamp and witnessed my transformation through my words; the boldness, the confidence in the Lord promising him such a beautiful marriage. It brought me to tears because I know that this was God. I was ready! I felt good to know that I have truly changed! I prayed with this man, and told him there is such a bigger picture than what your eyes are seeing and you approach our Lord and give everything to Him. Also, a praise report! My wife attended church Sunday on her own accord and slept at her parents’ house Saturday night away from the other man! God is moving mountains! BELIEVE in His mighty power! Thank you for showing me how to be a soldier for my wife.”  (Connecticut) (posted 3/20/2017)
“Praise God! At the end of last week, I asked for a sign directly from my husband. He spoke to my mother-in-law and said he was going to keep his bicycle because he couldn’t give up the good memories he and I had attached to it. Then today on the first page of a notebook I found in the building where I work was Luke 15:11-32, the parable of the prodigal son! I’m so thankful for these clear signs! I’m so excited about the miracles that are coming my way. Please pray for my husband to follow Jesus and for restored communication between us, which will lead to a restored marriage with Jesus at the center. In Jesus’ name, Amen! Thank You, God!”  (New Jersey) (posted 3/20/2017)
“God will not give us more than we can bear. My prodigal left some years ago. The separation has driven me into the arms of God is such a meaningful way. He’s confronted me for divorce but I intend to stand on what God has told me and that is ‘I will restore.’ The more I pray and give my attention to God it seems like the more my husband gets angry and tries to intimidate me or discourage me. He reminds me over and over that he’s not coming back. I choose to believe God’s report. His promises are true and He regards His Word over His name and looks over it to perform it. I know in spite of how it may appear that God is working it out for my good. Keep standing faithfully, standers!”  (Trinidad and Tobago) (posted 3/20/2017)
“The enemy has a short time and we are under multiple attacks. I for one am being hit right and left lately with medical and financial issues on top of this huge longing for my family to be saved, sanctified and whole serving God. What the enemy uses for evil the Lord can and will turn to the good. When the enemy laughs boldly in your face, the Lord whispers, ‘Watch My hand of grace. I own the cattle on a thousand hills.’ When the doctor says we need to do one more test, the Lord says, ‘Look there is someone going through this same exact thing. Go to them. You know what comfort you need, they need that too. Be my hands and feet.’ All I can say is this is so much bigger than just what’s on our plate. As I finally removed my broken dryer for a junkman to carry off, I see when it stopped working actually a fire had erupted. Soot and ash where all on the side but nowhere else. I realize God is covering so much more than I realize. My husband and family are His /mine.”  (Oklahoma) (posted 3/20/2017)
“‘For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you, not to harm you,’ declares the Lord, ‘to give you hope and a future.’ Jeremiah 29:11. I am a stander who once decided to give up on my husband. I asked the Lord to let me know His thoughts in my dreams. I dreamed that my husband came home. He slept and hugged me. This is what the Lord has told me, He has His perfect plan for our marriage and He does not want me to give up. Though my husband still has a hardened heart, I know that the Lord will turn it into flesh. The Lord has a perfect plan for me and my husband. He will surely restore this marriage. He will give this marriage a hope and a future. Fellow standers, don’t give up.”  (Philippines) (posted 3/20/2017)
“I recently struggled with my siblings over my mom’s care. They were angry with me and I felt bullied. I knew a part of me was surfacing that I didn’t like. I couldn’t sleep and fought anger and bitterness. I got up to do warfare prayer. I read my Bible and then the RMM daily email on Ezekiel 37:1-14 and the dry bones. God had given me that passage to pray over my marriage before. As I prayed it over my siblings, I saw a flash of a picture of their faces on the scattered bones. It was painful to see and then I saw my husband and he was put together, and flesh was forming on him. I felt that my prayers were making a difference even though there is no contact. I also saw the great need to pray more for my siblings, which also gave me peace.”  (Canada) (posted 3/20/2017)
“I have never taken my wedding ring off despite the years of separation. So, it was with great sadness that I discovered that my wedding ring had fallen off. I spent hours retracing everywhere, searching high and low. That night I cried out to God, that if He could find my lost ring, then surely He could find and return my lost husband. The next morning I asked some local shops if anything had been handed in and one lady said, ‘Did you carry a handbag with you yesterday, because I get a picture of you putting your hand into something and when your hand comes back out the ring is gone…check your handbag?’ I did and there it was! I burst out crying and told her about how I had lost my husband and that the ring was a sign to me of God’s promise of restoration. My other friend said that’s prophetic, ‘Like your lost ring, he was never lost, he was with you all along, you just need to readjust things for a better fit.’ I know he is coming home. PTL.”  (New Zealand) (posted 3/20/2017)
“God led me to write this testimony. I want to give my mighty Father the honor because a miracle has happened in my life. I am expecting a baby! After many years of marriage! I’ve been separated for some time from my husband. You can’t imagine the happiness I have in my heart as God has remembered me. These are very difficult times. God is testing my faith in depending on Him in everything. I don’t know how this will end, I even know a baby doesn’t tie a man. Only God can soften his heart. I trust in my Heavenly Father, and in His dreams and promises He gave me. In dreams, I saw I was pregnant and saw my baby’s name in it. Only God. Please, pray for my husband and don’t give up, keep believing without hesitation.”  (Ecuador) (posted 3/20/2017)
“I submitted prayer requests asking for prayers to find a job since I was put on layoff and my court date. All I can say is that my God is good. Not only did He provide me with a wonderful job, but the company requested me to start work two days early, the same day as my court date. I had no choice but to tell my attorney to reschedule, and currently I don’t have any new date. I believe that as the first date was cancelled, all appointed dates will be cancelled. This could only be the hand of our Jehovah Jireh who surely provides for us and also Jehovah Nissi who fights our battles. Thank You, Lord, RMM and all standers for your prayers. God never fails us. I’m standing on Ezekiel 11:16-20. Let’s all stand firm.”  (South Africa) (posted 3/20/2017)
“My husband came back over a year ago and after that we have been standing for our parents’ marriages. After being divorced for a decade, my mom is planning a wedding with the OM. My husband’s parents recently divorced after 30 years of marriage. It doesn’t seem like things are going in the right direction… But God! We are not moved by these circumstances! Last November God led me to read about the prophet Elijah in 1 Kings and how they watered down the altar many times, after which the fire of the Lord fell and consumed the burnt sacrifice. Two days after I read this from my Bible, it was in the Charlyne Cares daily devotional, ‘Call Down the Fire.” God is surely watering down our parents’ marriages, before calling down the fire – the restoration! Only He can get the glory when these watered down marriages are restored! In His perfect timing. Praise the Lord!”  (Finland) (posted 3/20/2017)

It is harder at times when our prodigals return but I am trusting God to complete His purpose in our lives and marriage. Never, never, never give up. God is moving and working all things together for our good. Praise His name!”  (New York) (posted 3/20/2017)
“My wife and I separated followed by divorce proceedings. I was completely broken by the incident. I went after her for a reconciliation but she was adamant over her decision. I went to her parents and siblings seeking the same matter, but they all supported her. It was at this time that I registered myself at RMM and started praying over the issue. Months passed. I was discouraged because I couldn’t see sign of any progress. Finally, one day in a prayer meeting, God spoke to me through a pastor saying that my prayer is heard, my family will be restored back to me in November. To my surprise, in November one day, my wife called me and apologized for everything. God did what He said. Our God is a living God, He makes everything beautiful in its time.”  (Ireland) (posted 3/20/2017)
“Acts 1:4-5 and 1:7-8 have been my scriptures I have gone to for faith and strength. Giving all to God, ‘zipping my lips’ and thanking my Father for this time to work on myself have been my focus. Reading RMM every day has been such a blessing in my stand! There are wonderful things happening in my prodigal’s life and I believe this is going to be my year of restoration for my marriage. We are both attending church and living in faith. We have become friends and talk multiple times every day. Praise the Lord for all He’s done in our lives. Don’t give up standers, keep following God. Praying for you all!”  (Indiana) (posted 3/20/2017)
“Praise God for His faithfulness. My spouse is not home yet But God! He comes over on Saturdays, comes over after work and we take our granddaughter out for dinner. He calls me every morning, during the day, and every evening. He pays all the bills, also. God has laid all of this on my spouse’s heart to do this and my spouse does not realize that God is using him to bless me. My spouse will surrender to God in God’s perfect timing. I choose to forgive my spouse and the other woman. They both need Jesus to get their lives right with God. God deserves all the glory and I choose to give God all the glory in my life, marriage and family. I know when my spouse turns to Jesus, our whole family will also. Praise God standers. Keep on standing. Don’t give up, your miracle is just around the corner.”  (Pennsylvania) (posted 3/20/2017)
“PTL. I just want to thank the Lord for showing me He’s still working on the other side of the mountain. Lately I’ve been feeling depressed and watching my faith life go in reverse, but thank God that this morning, He gave me a vision. In the vision, I pulled up to the side of a road in a car (I currently don’t have a car. I gave it as a gift to my church – a seed), and my wife crossed over and came to my window and kissed me. We put our foreheads together and were looking into each other’s eyes and she said ‘I miss you.’ Praise the Lord. I believe the Lord is softening her heart right now in the far country. Standers, keep standing. When you’re weak, tell the Father, He will help you up. Remember Isaiah 40:29.”  (Nigeria) (posted 3/20/2017)
“I’ve been standing for my marriage for many months. I’ve gotten amazing signs almost daily about how God is working on the other side of the mountain. The week of Valentine’s Day, the devil attacked hard by trying to get me to fall to my depression again. That same week, he also attacked me by the OW telling me to give up, that he wasn’t coming back. Today, my husband told me that we weren’t getting back together. But God! He gave me the strength to withstand those attacks. I didn’t respond to the OW, but I told my husband that I’m fighting and standing for our marriage no matter what, and that I loved him. I asked God to play ‘Restore’ by Chris August when my suddenly was almost near. Two days after the OW’s comment, I saw a Swift truck. Then all of a sudden, ‘Restore’ started playing. The Lord has also blessed me with a great friend and in-laws who support my stand. God is on the move! James 4:7.”  (Tennessee) (posted 3/20/2017)
“After hearing Charlyne mention Blinkhealth.com during the latest Rejoice Pompano recording, I was able to afford an important medication for my son. I am going through both a separation/divorce and severe financial trial, so things are literally hand to mouth right now and we’re temporarily without health coverage. I then found out his prescription had expired, and when I called his doctor to renew, the nurse told me I had to bring my son in for an appointment first. After I explained my situation (and PRAYED), our doctor said he’d make an exception and send one more refill to the pharmacy, pending a future follow-on appointment. Praise God, who knows how to fit all the pieces together in ways that let us know He is watching out for us and cares! I’m still waiting for the miracle of a softened heart for my wife, but He shows me daily that He is with me every second, and is in control.”  (Alabama) (posted 3/20/2017)
“After some time of zero communication from my husband, he sent me a text out of the blue at 1 a.m. We texted back and forth for a little while, and then he asked if he could come sleep at the house. He admitted that he hasn’t been able to sleep. I know that is the Holy Spirit convicting him, a direct answer to my prayers. Waking up next to my husband the next morning was a glimpse of the glory that God is revealing in our marriage. God is so good, and I know He is working everything out for our good. Thank You, Lord!”  (Colorado) (posted 3/20/2017)
“I just want to thank the Lord. My marriage has been going downhill for quite some time now. We are both living separately but I pray every day and fast for this marriage to be whole again. Even though we are not yet together, we speak over the phone every day. He refuses to speak anything intimate with me but he says he will tell me when I can come home or when he can come to us. I trust God’s timing and I believe my marriage will be restored.”  (Jamaica) (posted 3/20/2017)
“I’m so overjoyed and amazed at Gods goodness and provision. During my season of standing, I’ve had no financial support from my husband. But God, after what seemed like a while of waiting, provided me with a job. The pay was almost half of what I made previously but I was able to purchase my first car, to God be the glory. I have been actively looking for a better job to support myself and my son and yesterday I had a job interview. Today I had another job interview and was offered the job on the spot. But that’s not all. While on my way home from the second job interview, the first job called with a job offer. Two job offers in one day! Both closer to home, better pay, more weekends off and less work than my current job. God is my provider! I’m so thankful for Him taking care of every need. Feels like I’m dreaming, God is so awesome. Keep trusting Him standers! He is always on time.”  (Texas) (posted 3/20/2017)
I was feeling down and depressed at how long the Lord is taking and was especially mad as my husband is the Lord’s choice not mine (mine is an arranged marriage and before my marriage I had a dream where the Lord said that He will choose my husband). I was fighting with the Lord and He led me to this week’s Standing Firm devotional which I don’t usually read. The devotional is about God’s timing and it just filled me with God’s peace the minute I read it.”  (India) (posted 3/20/2017)
“I am in awe, when I look how far God has brought me. The divorce was finalized and my husband lives in a different country. But a week ago he drove to take me out for lunch. I was at peace and I think he noticed the change that my beloved Heavenly Husband is doing in me. A day later he sent me a message that he still loves me. Thank You, Jesus! From no contact for months to a lunch date! Indeed, God’s thoughts are not our thoughts and His ways are not our ways. Recently He has been giving me James 5:16. I will continue to pray fervently for I can see the changes in both myself and my husband.”  (South Africa) (posted 3/20/2017)
“Praise God! My husband has been coming around more frequently in the past few months. Although he lives over an hour away, I will drive to pick him up to spend time with us. He doesn’t mention reconciliation, but he spends weekend with us and does everything a husband should do. I get discouraged because he seems to enjoy living in the far country as much as he enjoys being home. I know that life is hard for him, but he won’t admit it. I pray that God continues to draw us near. I will continue to stand for my covenant spouse so that God will get the glory. It’s not easy, but we will have the victory. Thank You Father for all that You have done and will do for my family.”  (South Carolina) (posted 3/20/2017)
“The Lord we serve is amazing and plans every single moment to show us His unconditional love. Today I got my mail and the first thing I saw was a big yellow envelope from my husband. I knew what it was before opening it, but pulling out the divorce forms completely shattered me in seconds. As I read the pages I prayed and said, ‘You are faithful, I will trust You Lord.’ I put away the forms. As I got to the end of my mail I had an envelope from RMM and it was a card to wish me a happy wedding anniversary. I just cried and got to my knees to praise our mighty God because He knows and sees everything coming. He knows our future so I just need to stand still and wait for Him to mold me first and then my husband. That card was a huge hug from my Lord.”  (Colorado) (posted 3/20/2017)
“God is good. I have grown so much in the Lord. I found out Christmas day that my spouse is engaged to the OM. I was not as crushed as I thought I would be since I have been trusting in the Lord. My spouse and I have been communicating much more. She even told me herself she is not happy, and that she sees a major change in me. I always tell her it is the God I serve. We chat almost every day and she says she enjoys our conversations. My suddenly has not happened, but it’s close. I always read the testimonies and pray every day for the abandoned spouses. Praise God.”  (Texas) (posted 3/20/2017)
“Praise God! I have prayed consistently for several months that my prodigal husband, who has admitted he is an alcoholic and sex addict, would be removed from his job in a bar environment. He has met several OW there. And it’s just not a good environment. I use the Echo prayer app to remind me to pray specifically. On Friday, it reminded me three times to pray for that job. On Monday, my prodigal came to visit our son and told me that he had lost his job because the bar unexpectedly got shut down. Praise God, His timing is amazing. Continuing to pray that God will stop the divorce hearing this month as well. He hears and He answers.”  (Oklahoma) (posted 3/20/2017)

“I couldn't believe it. After a painful week of learning how deep in the darkness of sin my husband had fallen, I saw a Covenant Transport truck. I haven't seen one in my area in about five years. Before I learned the painful new details of my husband's lifestyle, I had been asking the Lord to let me see a Covenant Transport truck for weeks. In the depths of my sorrow, I wasn't even looking at the trucks on the road, but I looked to my right suddenly and was next to a Covenant Transport truck. I was in awe of God. It was such a comfort to see and gave me peace that surpasses understanding. Our God is so loving and merciful.  He gives us comfort in our grief and unconditional love for our prodigals as He gives us grace and strength to stand!”  (California) (posted 3/20/2017)
“I got my answer! My husband moved out this past week. Ever since I have been praying that God would show me whether to stand or not. He has revealed it several ways but I was still wasn't sure. I had been looking for that Swift truck for days. I gave up. On my way to counseling this evening, I spotted out of the corner of my eye the truck that read Covenant Transport.  I have never seen one in my entire life. Then after my session on my way to buy a Bible, I saw a Swift truck. God is so good. He brings to life what is dead. Thank You Jesus for never giving up on us.”  (Texas) (posted 3/20/2017)
“A few years ago, I discovered a billboard of RMM on a trip to see my parents. Since that time, I have walked in faith and grown so much spiritually. My husband returned home several months ago after several years of separation. As many of you know, the road is long and the Lord is the only One with the answers. But God worked His miracles and brought my husband home, humble and thirsting for life once again. Please don’t give up and keep those lips zipped. Love as Jesus loves and the reward will be great!”  (Mississippi) (posted 3/14/2017)
“My spouse came home over two years ago. God is so amazing! He is our hope. Continue believing for your miracle. God is faithful and nothing is impossible with our God. Thank You, God, and Rejoice Marriage Ministries for giving me the courage to wait for my spouse to come home. Praying for marriages around the world to be resurrected from the ashes of our circumstances and transformed into what God has planned. God bless you and your marriages.”  (Wyoming) (posted 3/14/2017)

“I went to church with a woman whose husband left her for another woman. She told me she was going to fast sweet tea until he came home, because she loved sweet tea and drank it every day, all day. We all thought she was crazy and that he would never come back. But a year later, they were back together and it’s been years since and their marriage is strong. God knows what things we really love and this woman was ready to give it up until….”  (Georgia) (posted 3/14/2017)
“It has been a few years since my wife and I have been separated and divorced and we have had zero contact. A few days before my birthday this year, I asked the Lord to have my wife message me according to His will. I didn’t hear from her BUT God gave me a birthday gift of my original wedding band that was lost for three years. I found it on my birthday ‘by accident!’ God is so AMAZING!”  (Antigua and Barbuda) (posted 3/14/2017)
“I have been standing for some time now. Prior to my husband moving out we fought badly. He lives with the OW in the same neighborhood as me. We fought so hard but even in the mist of that he made a promise to me that he will never marry the OW and that he will always take care of me, which he has done. But really, this was God. I can now say we are best friends. We talk every day. My wedding anniversary is coming up soon, and I pray we get to celebrate together. We are in a good space and my plan is to intensify my prayer life. Prayer works. The Lord has been good to me and He is holding my marriage together. It has been tough, but I am a better person now.”  (South Africa) (posted 3/14/2017)
“I have been standing for some time. My husband does not live with me but he comes to help when I need him. We’ve had many false starts. But God knows when the time will be right for us to be reconciled. I just keep praying, trusting and knowing that one day it will happen. I’m having surgery tomorrow. A few days ago, I asked my prodigal to help me during this time. He said he’d think about it. Yesterday, he texted me and asked what time we were leaving? We’ve not been in a car together for months! My God is awesome! He answers prayer, He calms my soul, He gives peace, He is everything! In a couple weeks there’s a mission trip to Haiti. I bought tickets for both of us to go. My prodigal first said he’d think about it. Then he said I wasted my money. Still praying for God’s will to transform us into His willing servants to go wherever He leads.”  (Illinois) (posted 3/14/2017)
“Praise report! This Sunday my son asked to be baptized! What an answer to prayer this is! This is the same son who moved out a year ago to go live with his dad and the OW. I was devastated…where are you, God? Don’t you see where my son’s living? What are you doing? Then suddenly my son returned home several months later and shared how he saw a different life at his dad’s and didn’t desire that. Yes, God knew what He was doing all along! My son now has started inviting my husband to church! It’s just amazing to see how God is working. Don’t ever give up believing and trusting in God. He’s got it all under control no matter how crazy it all seems. Zip your lips and love them all like Jesus!”  (Arizona) (posted 3/14/2017)
“I will always thank God for every miracle no matter how little it is. I’m standing for my marriage to be totally restored since my prodigal husband left home. He came home a few days ago to collect his mail and had the opportunity to chat with me. He did not bring up the issue or reasons why he left home. It was just a general chat for which I thank God, for it was the beginning of greater things to come in this journey of our restoration. Today we went out together with our children to celebrate my son’s birthday. Glory be to God. The testimonies of the standers have been wonderful. I pray for all standers that our joy may be full.”  (United Kingdom) (posted 3/14/2017)
“I was referred to RMM several years ago by a divorce attorney who believes all marriages are salvageable. During my stand, I have changed so much and have been drawn closer to my Lord and Savior. My husband constantly says he’s never coming back.  This weekend he went out of town with the other woman and it totally broke me. I was ready to end my stand and give up because it seemed like there is no hope and the marriage is completely dead. No matter how hard I try, the Spirit won’t let me give up. I’m pressing my way to see a restored and renewed marriage. Please pray for my strength to continue to rest in the Lord and be patient for restoration in God’s timing and not get weary.”  (California) (posted 3/14/2017)
“I have been standing for a long time after my divorce. I know God is a miracle God because He saved my life from me being hit by a car on pedestrian crosswalk. I prayed while in the ambulance. I spoke to the Lord how I am His daughter and He wants me to be of good health and prosper, to save my leg. If the Lord can save my life and leg, He can save my marriage. Nothing is too hard for our God. My prodigal husband has been listening to a song I sang to him when we first met every day and is understanding the instruments in it. Praise the Lord, I see him remembering a positive memory. That is how he is coping with my injury.”  (Illinois) (posted 3/14/2017)
“I’m going to be bold. Standers or prodigals living in the family home: Invite your spouse home. No ultimatums or timelines. Even if you have to leave and pick up your spouse wherever near or far they are, trust God and take the step. I know there are doubts and questions. But faith isn’t the absence of doubt. Faith is belief in Jesus Christ Who provides the grace in whatever we need. As a woman who very quickly left my marriage and divorced my husband, I am a restored wife as God says in Hosea. What if your spouse also knows in faith they are restored, yet need an invitation and an open door to put their faith into action? Please, show your confidence in the finished work of Christ, not your strength or your spouse’s strength, and just say, ‘Come!’ Revelation 22:17 – ‘The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.’”  (Florida) (posted 3/14/2017)
“I wish to thank the Lord for His mercies! Despite losing my partner, daughter and family home in court proceedings over false allegations. Yes, I lost the court battle but the truth has been revealed. If the Lord can reveal an evil conspiracy, He can surely restore! I pray for my ex-partner and our kids. Lord, thank You for my family and have mercy upon us for the sake of our kids. Lord, speak into the situation. The devil is a liar! Psalm 2:17-28. Psalm 41:11.”  (United Kingdom) (posted 3/14/2017)
“I’m kind of hesitant about writing this testimony but I’m going to do it in faith just because I really have this feeling that God is going to do something awesome very soon. Standing for many months now for my wife with a court date coming, I asked God to show me a reminder of my marriage but not as a Swift or Covenant truck but as a license plate for a change. I’m on the road and a member of my family told me to look at the car in front of us. I looked and saw at the top of the license plate ‘With God’ and I continued looking down. The rest of it was at the bottom. Praise God! It fully read, ‘With God all things are possible!’ Coincidence? Not at all! The OM with my wife left me a nasty text message which I shared with her father. All of us are now concerned for her safety. He sent me this text. ‘Time for Dad to start reaching out to our little girl.’”  (Connecticut) (posted 3/14/2017)
“PTL! I have been standing since I learned my husband moved on with my friend. The hurt and bitterness were indescribable but when I made God my personal friend, I felt much better. Each day I keep praying, reminding Him of His Word. My prodigal and my ‘friend’ paint social media with their love but that is not going to break me. My trust is in unchanging God! Dear standers, keep the faith. In His own time, He shall restore our marriages!”  (Kenya) (posted 3/14/2017)
