“I had a revelation last night. I heard a voice from high that told me, ‘By this time next year your marriage would be restored.’ Then I went to church and Revelation 7:9-17 was given to me!! God is faithful, He is my everything! His timing is perfect. Amen.  (Michigan) (posted 4/27/2016)
“Fighting divorce papers, God gave me Micah 7:11 (KJV), and these words from a song. You are bought with a price: so glorify God in your body and spirit (1Corinthians 6:20). Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God. Believe in me (John 14:1). You know where I am going and how to get there (John 14:4). I am the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6). Anyone believing in me shall do the same miracles I have done, and even greater ones (John 14:12). So that they are no longer two, but one. No man may separate what God has joined together (Mark 10:9). There are three things that remain - faith, hope, and love - the greatest of these is love (1Corinthians 13:13). If you love me, obey me; and I will ask the Father and he will give you another Comforter, and he will never leave you, the Spirit who leads into all truth (John 14:15-17). Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love them and reveal myself to them (John 14:21).”  (California) (posted 4/27/2016)
“Standing. Some days I really struggle with anger and bitterness or just plain hopelessness. Some days it just is not easy. I can tell myself all the right things. But some days I just don't think and feel all the right things. Mocked, betrayed, rejected, judged, abandoned. I can't imagine how Jesus felt that night in the garden, but I know He understands. He understands the hurt, the pain, the frustration, the loneliness. He understands. And He cares. I know that many days He carries me through. Some days I have to remind myself repeatedly that it is not about what I see, hear, or feel but about what God says and promises. Some days I feel like I am the only one who has the, 'some days.' Some days, those some days, just get the better of me. But today is a new day, His mercies are new every morning. So I stand. Some days better than others, but I stand.”  (Wyoming) (posted 4/27/2016)
“Praise the Lord. My husband went to live with an OW. After I stopped crying and started focusing on God and being the best of myself, I started seeing God’s hand. Daily midnight prayers have also brought about revelations . God has given me countless victories in my stand, from last year having witnessed two false starts of him coming home and going back. But  just like father Abraham, I am strong in faith, giving glory to God. The recent encounter God gave me through His Word is on tithing. He said not only will He bless me as I pay it faithfully, He will rebuke every devourer for my sake, including marital devourers. So I am grateful knowing He will never fail and am thanking Him for all around victories in Jesus’ name.”  (Nigeria) (posted 4/27/2016)
“I was feeling hopeless at work. While in the parking lot I saw a Covenant Transport truck. Once it left, my wedding song came on Pandora. That really gave me more faith to hold on.”  (Illinois) (posted 4/27/2016)
“I have been wavering in my faith and have been plagued with doubt about what God is telling me about the restoration of my dead marriage. I have been pleading with God because I really want to know what His will is for my future. I've been needing something to jumpstart my faith. In the past I have seen the word ‘Restoration’ on trucks or buidings and both times, I have spotted it twice in the same day. I have considered this significant since I have been asking God for signs. Yesterday, I saw the word ‘Restoration’ on a truck so I said, ‘OK God...let me see it twice.’ Then I saw a church marquee that read, ‘Patience is waiting on God's timing,’ another one read, ‘Rejoice with us.’ Rejoice stood out since that is a key word in your ministry name. I still wanted to see the word restoration again though. I got home, opened my mailbox to find a magazine called ‘The Restorer.’ I really now feel that He is speaking directly to me! Hallelujah!”  (Indiana) (posted 4/27/2016)
“Praise God! My suddenly has happened and my husband is coming home! As I allowed God to work in me and zipped my lips, my husband took notice of the unconditional love I was able to show him. God is so faithful, do not give up standers! Look beyond your circumstances and the ‘I don’t love you’ statements and focus on God’s promises. The Lord gave me many verses to claim during multiple attacks from the enemy. The Lord also gave me a vision in a dream of how He was going to breathe life back into my marriage. I sit here today completely overjoyed and overwhelmed as I see that vision being manifested. Nothing is impossible for God! My husband and I are looking forward to our next journey together, with Christ leading the way! Thank You Jesus!”  (Florida) (posted 4/27/2016)
“This year my beloved husband and I are celebrating many years of reconciliation after a hard and painful season of separation and divorce menace. Charlyne and Bob were my mentors through all this difficult process and I will always be very thankful for their lives. I know when I get to Heaven I’ll be able to meet them face to face and hug them very hard. We are celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary for the glory of God.”  (Mexico) (posted 4/27/2016)
“My wife and I are rebuilding our marriage beautifully, after her affair, and also now have a gorgeous little daughter from the affair. God, me, my wife and our children are happily back together and I am eternally grateful for the chance to do it all differently. When I discovered my wife was having an affair, and was going to leave me, it was like being hit by a train. Dark days! I watched/listened/read as many stories of restored marriages as I could find. Now I hope my story gives you courage to hold on. We were an ordinary married couple with kids. No abuse or anything. We had, over the years, lost our connection and trust and vulnerability were sorely missing. Restoring our marriage has meant dealing with the affair, but more importantly dealing with our broken friendship. I just want you to know that you can get through this. You can reconcile and you can have a very happy marriage. You will laugh again.”  (New Zealand) (posted 4/27/2016)
“PTL! My suddenly has happened. After months of separation and a pending divorce my husband has decided that he wants his family. We are still living in separate homes because he wants to take things slow and the OW still contacts him but he says he wants his family. I knew that standing was God’s plan for me even when I would doubt and many times I felt hopeless. God kept showing me His plan for us. I cannot express what God has done for me these past months. He has carried me the entire time. Without him I would not have changed my ways, character, and attitude. It is a constant battle but every time I feel negative and anxious I drop to my knees and pray and instantly God removes those feelings. It is through the grace of God that my marriage is in the process of restoration. Please keep praying for my marriage.”  (California) (posted 4/27/2016)
“Praise the Lord, He is worthy to be praised. During my stand I grew weary endless times. I kept reading on RMM, ‘It is finished,’ and it resonated in my spirit so strongly. I was ready to give up and throw in the towel. I prayed and cried out that someone would cross his path. God showed up when I least expected. My husband who was gone for several months called and said he was coming home. He said that a complete stranger told him he was wrong and he needed to go back home to his wife. Wow! We serve a mighty God. God honors marriage and He will never fail us, not ever. Please don’t go off your emotions, trust God. It’s hard to do in the natural, but if you focus on His Word that never returns void He will honor your faithfulness. I pray for all standers. This is a tough journey but the battle is not ours but the Lord’s.”  (Indiana) (posted 4/27/2016)

“God is on the move! While we’ve been legally divorced for some time now, my husband has always been home during what are sometimes called false starts for our anniversary. He has been back in the far country with another and our upcoming anniversary was to be the first time this special date was to pass without us sharing it together. While I haven’t seen or spoken to him in all these months even once, I’m incredibly thankful to God that he emails me regularly and tells me he loves and misses me often. I’ve been praying and fasting about our anniversary. I asked God for a miracle last night and He showed up in a mighty way because my husband happily agreed to meet up with me on our special day! There are no words to express my gratitude and excitement. Standers, God is on the move…let Him do the moving while you just keep standing!”  (Kentucky) (posted 4/27/2016)
“This last month was very difficult for me; I had some problems at work, financially and lost faith. I prayed and God showed me exactly when I had failed, so I repented, apologized, fixed what I could and asked God to please show me that I was right to keep believing in His promise of restoration. A friend called to say my husband had lunch with her family and it was a blessing. He kept asking and talking about me, mentioned our wedding date and more. My friend said she was sorry that things didn’t work out for us and he said, ‘But we don’t know what the future holds for us.’ I am so happy. God is merciful and He knew I needed this to show me that He is definitely working on my husband’s heart. I love you Lord! This is my little cloud being formed…it is going to rain!”  (Brazil) (posted 4/27/2016)
“I continue to be in awe of how God has been moving throughout this time of separation. We came so close to the brink of divorce following the last false start. I’m witnessing how God has softened my husband’s heart suddenly right after I surrendered him and our marriage to God. He came out of the blue and said he wasn’t seeking a divorce. Then he initiated counseling on his own and told me he is going to get his life together as he is not content where he is. He can’t stop thinking about me and something inside him keeps screaming at him to go home! He even talked about getting spiritual counseling and to my amazement asked for my pastor’s help. What a turnaround that can only be orchestrated by God! He is able to do immeasurably more than we could ask or imagine. The Lord showed me that this time it will be done right and there will be no more false starts. Praise the Lord!”  (New Jersey) (posted 4/27/2016)
“My husband had suggested we do our taxes together but because of the deadline approaching, our strained communication and him wrapped up with the OW, I went to the accountant we both used for the past few years by myself. The accountant was very confused as to why I was filing separately; he insisted I file jointly. So I very briefly shared my relationship status and my husband’s spiritual state. My accountant then found out I was a Christian and his immediate words were, ‘Your husband is in bondage. Keep praying, stay calm, God will bring him back home.’ He encouraged me for a while before I left. God took the time to encourage me from my tax accountant of all persons. 2 Corinthians 2:14. What a mighty God we serve!”  (Texas) (posted 4/27/2016)
“I just want to say God is good. He has been in the midst of my stand for my marriage. He’s taken care of every need my son and I have had. I’m still standing for my husband to obey God. Thank you RMM for all the encouragement.”  (Alabama) (posted 4/27/2016)
“I give all the glory to God Almighty for His faithfulness. I have been standing for many, many years and have experienced false starts. Through the enabling power of God, teachings provided by Rejoice Marriage Ministries and support of prayer partners, I am still standing. God has been faithful and always brings me the encouragement I need when I am tempted to give up. After several false starts, my husband reconciled with me last year after what can only be described as a miracle of God. Due to our work situations, we could not stay at one place. This afforded the enemy to strike recently and the situation now is very difficult. But I thank God that there is nothing too difficult for Him. Even though the enemy is trying to separate us, God has been speaking to me through His Word that He will bring complete restoration for His glory as stated in Ezekiel 36. Amen!”  (Norway) (posted 4/27/2016)

“I submitted a testimony not too long ago that God moved my prodigal back into the state and city where we lived! Nothing in the physical realm has changed (that I see), still no communication, but I feel led to share a song the Lord brought to me to encourage me in my stand. It has become the prayer and cry of my heart! One thing the Lord is revealing to me; this time apart is less about my spouse and more about making ME ready for his return! Praise God my prodigal WILL come home and I will be diligent, obedient, patient and faithfully relying on God’s grace as I grow, heal and prepare for his return. They are coming home! God is faithful! Believe without reservation and trust and receive from God all the good He has for us in this season. The song is Promise I Always Will by Steffany Gretzinger.”  (California) (posted 4/27/2016)

“God is good and powerful. Yesterday was my wedding anniversary, it was also Grandparents Day at my granddaughter’s school. I got to sit next to my wife and talk with her. When it was over I said I had something for her and she followed me to my car. I gave her a new cell phone. She has wanted one but said they were too expensive and couldn’t afford it. She accepted it and thanked me, and basically was in shock.”  (New Jersey) (posted 4/27/2016)
“Although divorce was a ripping of the flesh, this whole experience has brought me to know my Lord Jesus on a personal level. After my divorce God started wooing me towards forgiveness and reconciliation. In my search to learn to pray, get into God’s Word, I found this website. The daily devotionals are the manna needed to fight the enemy every day. God has given me confirmations that He will restore my marriage. Although my beloved is planning to remarry, I am not concerned. I was praying before going to church on Sunday, I asked God for a word from the pulpit. Towards the end of the service, my pastor was reading in Joshua 1, when he said, ‘Look at me, don’t you give up, GOD CAN STILL RESTORE YOUR MARRIAGE!’ Standers, don’t give up! We worship a big God who can make a way when there is no way. Continue praying and don’t give up!”  (Tennessee) (posted 4/27/2016)

“I was separated for some time. There was limited talk, nothing looked good, she had moved on, as it appeared to my eyes. I have learned something, no matter what it looks like, if you keep believing, keep praying, it doesn’t matter. God has the last say, and He did. My wife came home. Things started changing little by little, I could not believe it. God does answers prayers and does miracles. Please believe in what you don’t see. If you’re praying to God and crying out, He listens and there is something happening. Amen.”  (Texas) (posted 4/27/2016)
“My husband told me he was divorcing me, then a couple months later he moved out. I started praying for my husband continually and covering the door posts with scripture. The Lord spoke to me and said, ‘Stay calm,’ and gave me Isaiah 40:31. The scriptures and the encouragement on this website were exactly what I needed to continue standing. The testimonies of those standing and the restorations taking place were of such encouragement on days when my hope would waiver. The enemy comes to steal and kill. My husband broke it off with the OW and returned home to me on a midweek night before Easter! Glory to God! My husband bought us new rings and wants to renew our vows. With God all things are possible! God restores hearts. Thank You Jesus! Never stop praying for your spouse. God is more than amazing!”  (Alabama) (posted 4/27/2016)
“PTL! My covenant wife returned after some time of standing. Yes, there were times that I only made it through each day with the abundant grace of God. Some days the devil discouraged me so much but I stood on God’s Word. It is important to write scriptures down as suggested by Charlyne. I had the scriptures written down in a pocket-sized note book which I carried with me all the time. Don’t panic if you do not see results. My wife was ready to marry the OM. She said the worst things to me. She had a heart of stone. Don’t give up please. I know your pain and agony. Many times the devil had me believe the circumstances and I fell for it. That is when you get discouraged. Remember, the devil can do nothing to you. He uses doubt to discourage you. Jesus is walking with you. I am praying for all standers.”  (South Africa) (posted 4/27/2016)

“I fall deeper and deeper in love with our Heavenly Father the closer I get to Him and the more He opens my eyes to what’s going on and shows me the authority I have over the enemy as His child. I am in awe of Him and what He’s doing in my marriage, in me and in my husband! We are still not living together but God has shown me time and time again that in His perfect timing he will be home. My husband told me a few days ago when I was upset about all that’s been happening, that God has been showing him what love is and that he didn’t know what it was before and he knows that he loves me. He said I never would have gotten saved if it wasn’t for you and I just want you to be happy. I continue to pray that God brings him home with his eyes wide open. And that God will change him into the man he was created to be. Praise God!”  (Indiana) (posted 4/27/2016)
“A few days ago, while worshipping God with tears of happiness just for the opportunity to be in His presence, I turned my phone off so that I would not be disturbed. Before I turned it back on, I told God whatever is about to happen I will praise you anyhow. I turned my phone on, only to see a text from my spouse, asking if I was free to go sign the divorce papers. With peace in my heart, I agreed to go. While at the notary, the guy asked if the papers were for my husband and me because he couldn’t believe how calm we were. Before leaving I asked my husband for a hug and told him I loved him and he hesitated but responded back with I love you too! PTL, I haven’t heard that out of his mouth in over a year. God is working, never give up no matter how bad it seems. God will work it for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose!”  (Oklahoma) (posted 4/27/2016)
“At first I was skeptical about standing for my marriage but God came through for me and my two children. My wife left the guy she was living with. She still doesn’t know about us but I am trusting God to soften her hard heart. Praise Jesus Christ.”  (Missouri) (posted 4/27/2016)
“Victory in Jesus! I posted a court date, fasted and God gave me Isaiah 54 again with verse 17 as the highlight. I ended my fast with personalizing Psalm 119 for my prodigal. For the first time verse 164 stood out. So I started praising my Lord seven times a day. All I could do while waiting that morning in the court was sing praise songs. Well, total swift victory was granted and I did not have to say anything negative about my prodigal. Praying God touches his heart as he is surely feeling down about his request being denied. Our God executes the most perfect slam dunk ever! Trust Him!”  (Louisiana) (posted 4/27/2016)
“I haven’t seen my hubby in months, and the encounters within the last year and prior were horrible, which often left me with tears. Due to paperwork that required both our signatures we had to meet. God prepared me to love him and just as I finally submitted, I received information about a request he had made that had been denied. Everything God prepared me for went out the window. After my close friends prayed for me, I calmed. That’s 6-0 God’s way. I began to praise and thank God and the love began to flow again for my hubby. The next day I saw him and what should have been a ten minute meeting turned into a three and a half hour outing. I saw and see the softening of his heart. I fell in love with the real thing again. There was no anger, he opened the doors, and I felt like a lady (his lady). To God be the glory!”  (District of Columbia) (posted 4/27/2016)
“I am amazed. It’s been some time since my husband left. God is blessing me non-stop! My husband has agreed to work things out. I know it was God! This is the first step so I will keep praying for his soul and that he comes home. I’m speechless and so amazed at the mercy of God. He is faithful!”  (Virginia) (posted 4/27/2016)
“My husband left me a while ago, unexpectedly. I was devastated. He moved to another state shortly afterwards for health and healing. We saw each other over the holidays and it was amazing! God is healing me through a new church family and Christian counseling. PTL! A friend guided me to RMM and I’ve been standing ever since. My husband and I talk daily. He sounds like the man I married, more loving and caring. I know God is working on the other side of the mountain. Our 25th anniversary is a month away and I pray for reconciliation for that special day. To God be the glory! Stay strong in your faith, standers. His love is powerful and amazing!”  (Iowa) (posted 4/27/2016)
“I submitted a court date for last week. Since then, I have not heard about any more movement in my divorce. Now, it is the following week and I am still married in the eyes of the law as well as the eyes of the Lord. I don’t know details or specifics other than my God is fighting for me. My husband filed several months ago and I have not fought the divorce at all. There is absolutely no logical reason it should not have gone through already, save one. God is saving my marriage. Even if the divorce goes through, His promises will not return void. The miracle of the delays is enough to convince me of His promise.”  (Arizona) (posted 4/27/2016)
“After a rough day of dealing with the separation and having to sign paperwork, and an argument with my wife. I went to the evening church service, and our worship leaders (a husband and wife team), sang a special song. As soon as I heard it I started crying. It is the song my wife always sang our child to sleep with. The worship leaders left before I could speak with them, so I texted them after service to thank them for the song, and found out it wasn’t what they had planned to sing. The pastor had asked them to change it at the last minute. God speaks to us, in so many ways.”  (North Carolina) (posted 4/27/2016)
“My husband recently filed for divorce after several years away and very little communication. Now the lines of communication have since been opened, talking about the property settlement. Last week, after much prayer, I told him that I did not want a divorce, that I still love him unconditionally, and that I agreed to the divorce because it’s what he wants. I want to honor him, but I will not move on with anyone else, and I will be here waiting for him when he wants to come home. He didn’t have much of a response, other than acknowledging what I said, but I saw a small glimpse of his heart softening. Since our talk we have been pretty much in constant communication through texting, and the conversations have moved from property settlement to just small talk. I can feel my Lord moving mountains and I know that our relationship will be restored completely in God’s timing. I will wait upon my God! Praise God, my Lord and Savior!”  (Texas) (posted 4/27/2016)
Rejoice Pompano blesses me so much. I look forward to listening to it every month and without a doubt it speaks to me. I try to apply something Charlyne says every time. This time she suggested inviting your spouse to dinner, or some activity. I did it. I am waiting for a response from my husband. I am waiting expectantly for a yes. God has been so good to me, and this has all been so that He will be glorified. John 11:40 – Jesus said to her, “‘Did I not say to you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”  (California) (posted 4/27/2016)

“I read the Bible daily, and last week I had a revelation. When I’m in the Word and follow His laws, not only do I have an indescribable peace, but my integrity is intact. I have an in-home prodigal who hardly speaks to me or even looks at me. There was an OW in the picture, but I’m not sure of the status of that relationship. I’ve been praying for positive communication and asking for God to show me when and how to communicate with my husband. Once I had this revelation, I prayed for God to show my prodigal His will and way for my husband’s life and specifically prayed for the return of his integrity. Last night, as my husband and I prayed with our children, my youngest specifically prayed that God ‘help us to have integrity’ and ‘help us not to lie.’ God is working on the other side of the mountain, never doubt that. I pray 1 Peter 4:2 and die to my flesh daily, knowing His will is far superior than my own.”  (Texas) (posted 4/27/2016)
“My grandmother recently passed away. My prodigal spouse decided to join my children and me to travel out-of-state to her funeral without me even asking. While trying to find something special for her funeral, my sister was sending pictures from a local flower shop. A portion of a plaque with the verse Psalm 30:5 written was showing, and I instantly knew that was the one. It was the verse and song that had been an encouragement during a previous false start. Upon returning home, I knew that it was important for me to find another place to worship. My prodigal and son had been attending church, but my daughter and I had been attending church separately. My daughter began searching for local churches and brought me to a local minister to listen to. In the middle of the sermon, the preacher referenced Psalm 30:5. Since then, the four of us have been in church together two Sundays in a row. I am encouraged, because I know joy comes in the morning!”  (Louisiana) (posted 4/27/2016)

I had the scriptures written down in a pocket-sized note book which I carried with me all the time. Don’t panic if you do not see results. My wife was ready to marry the OM. She said the worst things to me. She had a heart of stone. Don’t give up please. I know your pain and agony. Many times the devil had me believe the circumstances and I fell for it. That is when you get discouraged. Remember, the devil can do nothing to you. He uses doubt to discourage you. Jesus is walking with you. I am praying for all standers.”  (South Africa) (posted 4/27/2016)
“God is faithful! My husband has come home after several months of standing. As shown here in RMM, it happened suddenly! God has changed me, convicted me by the Holy Spirit and I am grateful to RMM for teaching me how to pray for victory in my marriage. Each time I grew weary and wanted to give up, God would send people my way to remind me of my stand. Our marriage is still undergoing healing and restoration. I am still praying that my husband will surrender himself to God. I continue to pray that God will change us both so we can have a marriage pleasing to Him. In God’s time, I know that His Word will not return to Him empty and that His promise of a godly marriage filled with love and kindness will come true. Standers, thank you for sharing your testimonies. It has inspired me and helped me a lot in my stand. For all standers out there waiting for their suddenly, keep believing. God always delivers His promise!”  (Philippines) (posted 4/19/2016)
“Praise God, we are in the process of being restored! Thank you RMM for the phone call. I was driving to meet my prodigal that very moment. It was truly of God that you chose to call me at that time as I was pleading for someone to come alongside me to pray. We have been working on restoration a few months and have been under attack by the enemy from every direction. Prayer and encouragement gave me the courage to tell my husband many things he had not been ready to hear these many years of my stand. I was able to share in depth my relationship with God, exactly what a stander is, and that I would stand the rest of my life. He finally saw the truth through the enemy’s lies. Long-term standers, never give up on God! A divorce and many, many years was worth the wait! Faith, hope and trust.”  (Georgia) (posted 4/19/2016)

“I have been through abuse and constant fighting. I met my wife at church and she grew up in church. I have been a Christian for some years, born again! PRAISE the LORD! We had a physical altercation which led to jail and divorce. I tried treating myself and I failed.  Now I am relying on God. We are now doing great and together and she was talking about getting a place together one day. It’s better than ever as we trust God to keep His promise. I don’t have to control, just let go and let God.”  (Missouri) (posted 4/19/2016)
“I have been a stander for several years and God has given me many promises and signs and has provided for me completely. Last week was my birthday and I came under severe attack, feeling very depressed and crying out to my Lord to please end this pain. Several minutes later my phone went off with a text. It said, ‘Morning (my name), never give up on anyone. Miracles happen every day.’ I was shocked and began praising God. The number was long distance and not from anyone I knew. When I tried to call the number it said it was a nonworking number. Several hours later I received a happy birthday text from my husband and when I got home from work he had come by and left me a card and gift. The card was signed ‘Love (my husband),’ even though he is still living with the OW. I know what God has promised me. I will stand and pray forever.”  (New York) (posted 4/19/2016)
“Glory be to God! The restoration of my marriage is so close. My husband and I have been separated for some months. He filed for divorce but it’s been put on hold. Since my husband has left, he’s sworn he’s NEVER coming back. I have found out he has been having problems with the other women and isn’t happy. For the first time in months he has spoken about coming home. He has told me if it’s Gods will He’ll be home. Don’t give up, keep praying and standing. Have faith! God is so good.”  (California) (posted 4/19/2016)
