“My husband told me all of a sudden one day he didn’t know if he wanted to be married or a single. I thought we had a wonderful marriage. I was devastated. So I decided to be a stander and put it in God’s hands, praying all throughout the day at work, anywhere. I talked with God regularly. God would send me signs through people who didn’t even know what was going on with words of encouragement. This went on for a while. I went to church and the spirit was high, I was praising Him and thanking Him and someone told me, ‘It’s ok, it’s done.’ I accepted this as I knew it was a sign from God. The next day my husband called and asked for forgiveness and came home the same day. Glory be to God. Standers, keep the faith. Learn to see the signs He is sending your way. I will be praying for you all.”  (North Carolina) (posted 9/26/2016)
“We all are standing because God put it in our spirit to, and we all have come to a point where we say to God we are done because of the unfairness we feel we are enduring. In reality, our stand isn’t about us and God had to get me to realize the bigger picture. The past few days I did want to give up, and would tell God I really don’t want to pray for my husband but I will. Finally, one day I said, ‘Okay God. What do You want me to do because I feel like I am ready to let go?’ Then I heard Deuteronomy 6. We are to do what’s right and good in the Lord’s sight and be obedient. Standing is showing God I will do Your will regardless of it all. Standers, don’t give up. There’s a bigger picture our families and future generations. God never gave up on us and it took me reading God’s Word on obedience to get that. Look at how far you have come with God and see the difference.”  (Tennessee) (posted 9/26/2016)
“I recently listened to a sermon titled ‘Give What You Want and You Will Get What You Need.’ It’s been so hard to connect with my covenant husband and intimacy just hasn’t been there. God convicted me that instead of waiting for him to make the first move, I needed to give him what I desired: love, affection, affirmation, invitations, serving, physical touch. As I have done that I have seen the walls breaking down in my husband and he has begun to pursue me in return! And no matter what my husband gives me, I have learned to get everything I need from my Heavenly Husband, which then allows me to pour out even more! God has given us a Spirit of Love and there is power in that love to break off every chain! If you’re believing God to restore His love back into your prodigal’s stony, cold heart, then maybe you should be the first to warm up that heart with God’s Love! After all, isn’t that what Jesus did for us while we were still sinners and pushing Him away?”  (Florida) (posted 9/26/2016)
“After many years of courtship, my husband and I got married only to get separated after a few years, with a beautiful baby boy. It was a very difficult time with tears of rejection. I called out to the Lord who heard me and sent people along who encouraged me. Last evening my little toddler happened to speak of another mom. Even though it was not clear, my heart broke. I messaged my husband and he replied that our boy has and will always have only one mom and that’s me. My husband has not replied so positively in such a long time. I believe God is softening my dearly beloved’s heart and very soon he will be home. Thank You Jesus.”  (India) (posted 9/26/2016)
“Not that long ago the Charlyne Cares had a picture of a girl pulling back the darkness like a sheet. The other side was beautiful and bright in comparison. It reminded me of a picture I saw while praying at the beginning of my stand, with my husband in the mud and everything around him the same color. The picture gave me hope. I shared it with a coworker whose daughter is suffering depression and he feels lost. He smiled and I know for a moment he felt hope.”  (Canada) (posted 9/26/2016)
“I’ve been really struggling lately. It’s definitely different than the beginning. Now I feel as if I’m battling a growing hardening heart, due to false starts and various fears. We live in separate states due to our current situation. My husband had a baby with the OW. I’ve been out to see him and baby several times in the last year…he says they are not together. I’m getting ready to leave this weekend for another little visit. PRAISE GOD! We talk almost every day. I think I’m mostly battling fear. I received a verse today that I hope will encourage others as well. So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. Hebrews 10:35-36.”  (Michigan) (posted 9/26/2016)
“Our Heavenly Father has a profound sense of irony and perfect timing! I’ve been praying He would reveal my blind spots to me so I could repent and draw closer to Him. I had submitted the devotional ‘Rough Road Ahead.’ It was published yesterday and as I read it again I realized there was still significant fear in my heart. Fear of God allowing a divorce to be ‘finalized.’ Fear of people at work judging us. Fear of the OW’s hold on my beloved. Fear of my beloved not making it out of the ‘far country’ alive. I cried and confessed all the fear in my heart, and when Abba heard and healed me, I saw a significant shadow had left my eyes. I know I have victory in the One who strengthens and heals me. Draw closer to Him and He will draw closer to you.”  (Louisiana) (posted 9/26/2016)
“At my court date we prayed in the morning that God’s truth will be spoken. At the hearing, there was a substitute judge and he asked me what reasons I have against my divorce. I wanted to give testimony, why I don’t want a divorce, but the judge interrupted me and said: ‘A question of faith can’t prevent a divorce.’ My husband’s lawyer asked why he and not the other judge was present. He explained, that the first judge was pregnant, her representation as well, and the second representation was on vacation. Then he said: ‘It seems that God does not want this divorce.’ He himself, who had ridiculed me, spoke out God’s truth. The judge shifts the divorce. I’m still married. To God be the glory. Two days later, my husband said that the other woman is pregnant and expecting twins. I was shocked. Satan wanted to destroy everything in me, but God’s counsel was: Trust in me, and do good.”  (Germany) (posted 9/26/2016)
“I am struggling in my stand and doubt is a constant battle. But God has been so faithful. He has placed people in my life to encourage my stand. And every time I pray to give up, He encourages me with a sign. I trust my God and have faith in Him that is growing by the day. He is changing me from the inside out and I welcome it. I have been praying lately to distance myself from my husband as the pain is just too much. But this Sunday at church the pastor’s wife was at the altar, praying over the congregation, and declaring this is the season for a comeback. She pointed her Bible right at me a declared, ‘God will restore your marriage!’ This was a complete shock for me because I have only been attending this church for a very short time and have never spoken about my marriage with anyone. But God! He is faithful! I pray for all of you and please pray for my family.”  (Virginia) (posted 9/26/2016)
“God is working through our prayers stander! A few mornings ago I woke up praying to the Lord and asking for a sign as to whether I should even be bothered with my marriage being restored. Then I started my daily reading which started with RMM. I love to see what Charlyne Cares has for me! To my surprise the entry that day had a heading which read, ‘Show Me A Sign’ and I received the same email twice! I was so shocked and continued reading and it went further to speak on the passage in Judges 6:36-40 when Gideon needed ‘another sign.’ I did too and got the same email TWICE! I know God is at work in this.”  (Tennessee) (posted 9/26/2016)
“To God be the glory. My prodigal and I have been separated for some time now with him living with OW. We have had multiple false starts. I’ve been dealing with doubts about him being the right person for me. This past weekend while our son was with him, and I was alone at home, I intended to remove his pictures from the frames at home. That same day in the RMM newsletter the question was asked: ‘Where are your pictures?’ I came down to my knees in shock and cried. The next day, I knew they were going to a water park and I prayed to God for a sign if I should be standing and waiting for my prodigal, if it was worth the wait. I specifically asked God for a picture as a sign. To my surprise and after I almost forgot, that same day he sent me not one but four of their day at the park. I have faith my prodigal will come back in God’s perfect timing. Jeremiah 29:11 has been my promise.”  (Florida) (posted 9/26/2016)
“Praise the Lord! My husband has been visiting and spending the night during the week for the past month. He disappears on weekends, but I know God is working. He’s told me many times he’s only there to visit my child, but I can see his heart softening more and more. Every day I wake up and prepare for my suddenly. In the beginning of my stand God gave Jeremiah 29: 11-13. I am holding on to that promise with all my heart.”  (California) (posted 9/26/2016)
“To all standers, I believe there is a point in our stand when we don’t know where to turn or what to do next but I would like to encourage us God knows. Once we desire to go deeper and walk according to His commandments, He will speak to us and meet us at the exact point we are at. Trusting the Lord can be hard at times because we see no visible changes but my comfort to you is to be grateful for what He has already done and thankful for what He is going to do. Faith gives us the victory and we have to believe it in Jesus’ name.”  (Trinidad and Tobago) (posted 9/26/2016)
“I am praising the Lord as I write this testimony! As I’m sure others can agree, the attacks from the enemy come harder as our faith becomes stronger and as we continue to stand. This weekend I knew God was revealing Himself to me in many ways, and the enemy sent doubt my way. I cried out to God several times, asking Him to confirm that I’m to continue to stand. Monday morning during my devotion time, I was directed to Hebrews 10:35-39, and knew that this was from God. That same evening, I listened to the Rejoice Pompano Bible Study, and one of the last scriptures Charlyne referred to was the very same scripture from that morning! I’m confident that His promises are true! We need to be confident knowing that He will complete the work that He has started. I’m praying for strength for all standers around the world, and plead the Blood of Jesus on our prodigals and families. We serve a faithful God!”  (North Carolina) (posted 9/26/2016)
“It is so amazing to see how God is working in my life right now! My husband is turning around with God’s work. I will keep praying. This is not just a thing to me, this is a way of life now! Don’t give up standers, keep praying. God will do it!”  (South Carolina) (posted 9/26/2016)

“When I stumbled upon your site, I was devastated and admittedly without much hope, but I chose to press on and stand. I believed God. I stood on His Word that my husband would lose interest in the OW and return. Well, after many months of tears and even more prayer, I am moving out of my apartment today and back home with my beloved. Our relationship is stronger today than it was the day we married. Stand strong and NEVER give up hope!”  (California) (posted 9/26/2016)
“I’ve been standing for marriage restoration after many years of divorce. I feel in my Spirit that it is about time to give birth to that promise, but the labor pains have been at their greatest. Recently my husband shared that where he was once was fine playing around in sin, now he is miserable. He is waking up to his true purpose and sees a restored marriage as a part of it. When he thinks about the type of woman he desires, one who loves God and will love and pray for him, God answered that I am that person. I’ve been expecting this breakthrough for so long now, but I honestly didn’t ‘see’ any evidence of it. Little did I know what God was doing in the unseen, deep down in my husband’s heart. Now he says he is just fighting the notion of having to give up his freedom and not be able to live for himself anymore. Yet we all know that it is for true freedom that God has set him free and soon enough he will know and surrender to that truth!”  (Florida) (posted 9/26/2016)
“Praise God! He has never left me in times of doubt or disobedience to Him! Even before I found Rejoice Marriage Ministries, God kept telling me to be silent; that He would give me wisdom to do and say the right things. I prayed but I did not always listen. I tried everything humanly possible to fix us, making our situation worse than it was before. It wasn’t until I finally did as God directed me for my marriage and family, that I started to see results. My husband’s heart is softening, our friendship is growing, and my husband is texting me again. I have seen more progress in my marriage in the short time of being obedient to Him than I ever did in disobedience. God is awesome! I will not be discouraged anymore! My husband will be home soon!”  (Indiana) (posted 9/26/2016)
“Recently I’ve been feeling a bit discouraged. I know in my heart God will restore my marriage as promised, but I’m practicing patience and learning to accept God’s timing. Last night felt special, though, because God’s been giving me the word ‘harvest’ and it was the harvest moon. Plus, my sister and I went to a MLB game. I secretly prayed what I call a ‘Gideon prayer’ (after reading ‘Lord Show Me A Sign’). I said God, if this crowd starts a wave, I’ll take it as a sign of hope for my marriage restoration. I didn’t think it would happen because the home team was losing, but sure enough near the last inning (after several attempts) a couple guys on our row got it started. Every time it came around I said, ‘Thank You, Jesus!’ I declare and decree my suddenly (harvest) is near! Thanks Charlyne for leading me to Isaiah 54 this week, especially Isaiah 54:4-17. Draw closer to God.”  (Arizona) (posted 9/26/2016)
“I recently celebrated my wedding anniversary. I received a card from RMM the day before, and I was at peace that evening, despite being sure that would be the only acknowledgement of the date. I left a card for my in-home prodigal. He took it, but there was no mention of it. I was discouraged, knowing there would be no gift. When I arrived home, a package was waiting. It was the album of wedding pictures that I had ordered and forgotten about! In the busyness following our wedding, I had delayed creating the album until a few weeks before this anniversary (several years since our wedding). I was delighted to receive this on my anniversary – precious memories in pictures to remind me of my vows. God did not forget my special day! I was even able to go out to dinner with my husband. Standing firm and trusting my Lord!”  (Georgia) (posted 9/26/2016)
“PTL. I wasn’t very nice to my spouse; the damage I did has taken a toll on him. He accepted a job overseas and started the divorce process. He met the OW over there. He asked for a divorce and wanted it done as soon as possible and I agreed to it. Shortly after, I had this feeling come over me and I knew it was nobody but God. I was lead to Matthew 19:4-6, and I immediately started to pray. I asked God to forgive me for hurting one of His creations and for my husband’s heart to soften. After a few weeks with no communication, he called and agreed to hold off on the divorce until he comes home. Our communication is better now. I know the Holy Spirit is working on him. Standers, please keep the faith and keep praying. Your prodigal will return.”  (Georgia) (posted 9/26/2016)
“I want to thank everyone who prayed and who are still praying for me. My court date today did not end in divorce; it was postponed until a later date.”  (Florida) (posted 9/26/2016)
“PTL, my God is good indeed I haven’t seen my husband since we divorced. I become discouraged about my stand but the Lord kept pushing me to stand on His promises. I prayed for God to show me a sign and He did. I wanted to see my husband’s face for a long time but God showed me in another way than I expected. My son become sick during the night and I called his dad in the morning. He told me to go to the doctor and he arrived there to pay the medical bill. He even went with me to my office and spent an hour with us. I realized that all this was the work of Mighty Warrior Jesus. He is always fighting our battles. Hold on to God, He will never disappoint you.”  (South Africa) (posted 9/26/2016)
“PTL! As I am now standing for my marriage and very thankful to RMM, I was moved by the words of a certain athlete in the recent Rio Olympics. ‘When she only prayed for a bronze medal, God gave a silver medal.’ This only shows that God would give us an amazing marriage reconciliation more than the way we imagined. Hallelujah!”  (Philippines) (posted 9/26/2016)
“My husband left me while I was eight months pregnant with our first child. Our daughter was born last month. I have been praying harder than ever and have even created a war room. I have faith that our marriage isn’t over and I have been praying God will soften his heart. He hasn’t been interacting with our daughter and I’ve been praying for a supernatural shift in the atmosphere and in his heart. Tonight he is spending the night and for the first time, he is taking care of our daughter and waking up with her every three hours. God is amazing and He is answering my prayers on His time. I have faith that my husband will return.”  (California) (posted 9/26/2016)
“Praise the Lord for working in us standers and always working on the other side of our mountain. He is leading our spouses back to Him. The Lord will keep the promise of the covenant He made with us. Our God is faithful. The Lord is working in my husband in ways I could never imagine. The day after my birthday my husband wanted to confirm with me that he did not forget my birthday and I will be receiving packages in the mail. When the packages arrived, I opened them with him and our son. God led him to give me the tea pot and coffee pot of our wedding china! God gives such good gifts and he lavishes us with love. Standers, keep your eyes on Jesus and the power that He has to break strongholds in all of our lives. Keep hoping and trusting our Abba Father! Continue zipping your lips and loving your spouse unconditionally. Wait patiently for the Lord. Walk around in awe of our Lord, thanking Him for every sign and revelation.”  (Georgia) (posted 9/26/2016)
“Praise God for favor and breakthroughs. My husband came by and asked me to come outside to discuss some business, which turned into a personal conversation. Suddenly, a neighbor whom I’ve never spoken to, parked in one of the spaces near my unit since workers were trimming trees near his car. He asked if it would be okay to park there. I said yes. While crossing the street, he yelled, ‘Thanks, is that your husband?’ I smiled and replied, ‘He used to be my husband.’ He quickly turned around and came back. With a warm smile and a mind full of wisdom, he preached ‘the Word’ to us both and advised us to work it out. He asked us to hold hands while he prayed for us. My ex held my hand very tightly. God is great! Holding hands, a hug and a kiss all in one day! We have started texting more and my ex is joining me at open house tonight! When God orchestrates things like this, prayers must increase, not cease. May God restore our union and yours!”  (Florida)   The Lord’s timing is always amazing and perfect! Can you imagine this man who had to park his car away from his apartment, but near this stander’s apartment and she happened to be standing outside? But God! Then the man asked a simple question, “Is that your husband?” This stander told the truth. What happened? This stranger turned around and allowed the Holy Spirit to use him that evening to share from God’s Word. Then this man spoke faith for this couple to work out whatever their marriage problems they were facing. Then he asked them to hold hands while he prayed for this couple he did not know! This man was obedient to the Holy Spirit’s instructions and the Lord empowered him to speak God’s truths about marriage with Holy Spirit boldness! Praise the Lord! To God be the glory! May you and I pray we will have the opportunity to do what that man did over and over again in our own lives. May you and I pray that we can make a difference even with strangers! A divine appointment! A gift from the Lord for this stander! He wants this marriage restored! Now ask the Lord to use you like that every day! – Charlyne  PS: Wouldn’t you love to know this man’s story? (posted 9/26/2016)
“I have to testify to the great things God is doing. He is worthy of all praise, honor and glory in all circumstances! My God has brought healing to my daughter who has been struggling with anxiety. As I watch answered prayer revealed, and how He’s peeling away all the layers of fear from my daughter’s soul, I stand in awe! Earlier this year my husband withdrew the divorce from the courts (answered prayer, PTL!) and as he plans to go and re-file in a couple of weeks. My God gave me the scripture Isaiah 43:13 as I cried out for Him. I did not know this particular verse. He has also been speaking Isaiah 54:4 throughout the last few days in so many ways. I look forward to the day I testify my marriage is restored! Know He hears our prayers and He answers! Keep the faith. Keep standing. Our God is faithful.”  (Canada) (posted 9/26/2016)
“Praise God, thank You Jesus. Today is our wedding anniversary. We are still married but are separated for many years now. But God. My covenant spouse called me this morning and said, ‘Happy Anniversary.’ Then after work he came over and gave me a beautiful card and took me to a very nice restaurant for dinner. Then left to go to the condo he lives in with the OW. That hurt. But God! He has carried me and blessed me every day of this journey He has me traveling on. Standers, don’t ever give up. God is faithful and will bring our spouses home in God’s perfect timing. I choose to forgive and love my husband because it’s what God wants me to do to obey and every day I see many blessings despite the hurt and pain. God is my strength and fortress. Keep standing, your miracle is just around the corner. God’s timing is perfect. Nothing is impossible for God.”  (Pennsylvania) (posted 9/26/2016)

“I am writing this testimony as an act of faith. My 'suddenly' has not happened (yet) but I have faith in our Lord that it is coming soon! Like many other testimonies I have read, I began asking God for signs that He wanted me to stand for my marriage to be reconciled. Everyone was announcing they were seeing the Covenant Transport trucks and I asked God to let me see one. Well, instead of that, God did one better (as He always does) and I received an email from a home health agency needing nurses. What was the company name? Covenant Dove! I was ecstatic and immediately praised God. Later, I did see a Covenant Transport truck. God is still in the miracle-working business and He still hears our prayers! Keep standing standers and so will I!” (Mississippi) (posted 9/26/2016)
“Two months after my divorce a few years ago, I went for overnight prayer at church. My handbag was pulled from the window at home that morning and my wedding band was stolen. God spoke to me while in prayer that I should wear a wedding band. I found one in my possession and put it on. Through rejections by my husband, I threw the band away. This year the voice came again that I should wear a band and I bought another wedding band. People told me I was crazy. While I was again out to pray, we were attacked by robbers and my wedding band was taken again. What a fight for my marriage! So I bought a fourth wedding band. Standers, four wedding bands but one husband. God still has me as the apple of His eyes.”  (Namibia) (posted 9/26/2016)
“I have been an alcoholic since a teenager, and a drug addict later. All the sins you can imagine with that lifestyle describe me. Yet my wife remained faithful; not only that but we never fought. She only would hurt and remain sad for years. But a faithful and a good wife she always was. I overdosed a few years ago and the doctor told my wife and family I was brain dead. But the prayers never stopped. Three days later I was awake. Her first words were, ‘I forgive you.’ It has been a long journey. I am a deacon in the church now. But for a long time I wanted God to explain to me how my wife could love me and remain faithful, never forsaking me. God answered… ‘It was not you that she loved the most nor was it you that she remained faithful to. It was ME she loved, her faith was in Me not you.’ So for me a marriage is not about serving each other. It’s about serving God!”  (Mississippi) This testimony had me crying. Here is a man with so many addictions to have a wife believe in the power of God. She continued to pray for deliverance and he even received a healing from the Lord. His wife persevered in prayer with tenacity, and continued to pray for impossible circumstances. She waited for the Lord’s perfect timing. Her husband’s heart has been totally transformed and he is now he is a deacon and is able to serve the Lord in their church! Dear standers, never give up on the power of God and what He has done for one couple, He will do for others as He came to seek and save the lost. Our God is no respecter of persons! May this testimony show you that with God nothing is too hard for Him to do. To restored couple: Thank you so much for sharing this testimony for all of us!” – Charlyne (posted 9/20/2016)

“Praise God. I just wanted to share that God does answer prayers, even in doubt. I lost my wedding band last year after taking it off in the car. I have searched and cleaned this car looking for my ring and after listening to my husband again say he didn’t want to work on our marriage. I went into my closet to pray and cry out to God. I asked Him why am I going through this and that I couldn’t do it any longer and for God to tell me or show me once again that He wanted me to fight for this marriage. No less than 30 minutes later I was getting into my car and there was my wedding band! Just sitting there as if I had placed it there on purpose more than eight months after losing it. He really answered me that time loud and clear. Please standers, don’t give up. My marriage will be restored in God’s timing as will yours.”  (Maryland) (posted 9/20/2016)
“The Lord has me fighting in prayer for my EH. We are divorced and he has been living with the OW. They were about to buy a house together. The Lord had me fast and pray day and night for that contract not to go through. About a week ago he told me he was moving on the weekend. Throughout the day the Lord kept giving me scriptures about trusting Him and having peace. I told the Lord that no matter if my EH bought that house, I would keep on praying for the restoration of our marriage. I started to sing praises to my Lord. That same day he told my mom that he was unable to purchase a house and that the reason he moved was because he could not live where he was living any longer. The Lord has promised me He will restore my marriage and bring back His prodigal son.”  (New Jersey) (posted 9/20/2016)
“PTL. Indeed, God does answer prayers. I’ve been standing for a few years now and have never stopped praying for my husband and restoration of my marriage. His attitude towards me had been terrible and I’ve always prayed to God to show me signs that He is working on him. I continued to be civil and courteous in all my communications with him, not relenting in prayers, until suddenly, he started being civil in his communications with me. For the first time in years, he apologized to me and I knew it was God. I’m starting to see his heart softening towards me and I know in just a matter of time my suddenly will happen! I noticed these changes when I started praying more for standers and prodigals all over the world. God is indeed faithful. What He said, He will do. What He promised, He’ll bring it to pass. The storms can keep raging, I won’t give up because I am 100% confident in my God. Praise God.”  (Nigeria) (posted 9/20/2016)
“I have been standing since my husband left to be with the OW. They have since broken it off, but my husband still wanted to pursue a divorce. It was finalized last week. This weekend, he revealed to me that he has already started dating someone new. Praise God! I was able to face the judge and accept our divorce and also accept the news of this new woman calmly and with grace. I didn’t get emotional or angry, even though I was hurting inside. My husband knows I am standing, even though he has asked me not to do so, and he has been surprised by the strength I have shown this past week. God helped me stand strong and deal with the news and has been preparing me for it for some time. God has assured me this is all part of the plan so I am trusting in Him 100%!”  (Ohio) (posted 9/20/2016)
“I went to Goodwill in search of merchandise for a house restoration and found a painting of the mountain harbor vista from the marriage ceremony location of my covenant wife and I. The painting was exactly like one I had given my children when they were voicing their homesickness (after the legal divorce) for the town they were born in. I was sad at first because my bride had thrown away yet another reminder of our family’s beginnings. But Abba turned my sadness into rejoicing by telling me, ‘Look, I have returned this painting to you just like I will return your covenant wife to you.’ That painting would have gone into the garbage if it wasn’t for God guiding it to Goodwill and then to me. Praise the Lord for His merciful encouragement.”  (Texas) (posted 9/20/2016)
“Bob’s books, Prodigals Do Come Home and A Prodigal’s Perspective, came a few days ago and I have been reading them non-stop. With Bob’s book in my hand today, I saw my husband pull up into my driveway, unannounced. We haven’t seen each other in a while, so it was a shock. After a false start and the arrival of a new OW, the enemy has been trying to get me down. But Bob’s books helped put things back into perspective and then God decided to affirm everything Bob wrote about. During these few minutes with my husband, God reminded me of what I’m standing for. The last time I saw my husband, he was cold and impersonal, but today I got a tiny glimpse that things may not be as they seem in the far country. He was kind, hugged me several times, and even kissed me! I am so overjoyed today, and can’t imagine how my heart will handle my suddenly! God is SO good. All of these tears and struggles will be worth it when restoration comes!”  (Florida) (posted 9/20/2016)
“I’ve been standing for my marriage for awhile now. I found RMM by accident and immediately knew it wasn’t by accident but that God led me to this website. When things first started and my husband left our family for the OW, so many people told me that I was young and could easily find someone else. But God told my spirit to wait and stand for the restoration of my marriage. And after many upsets and falling off the wagon many times, God still came through with His promises. My family is back together. My husband says he doesn’t know if he wants to stay or find his own place again but I know God did not bring him home for him to leave again. God is always faithful to His promises. And even though at times I felt alone, I know God never left my side. Hallelujah, glory to God. Thank You Lord!”  (Texas) (posted 9/20/2016)
“PTL. I’m still standing for my marriage. God has been good to me. God has been working on the other side of the mountain. My son said that every time he’s been to my husband’s place for weekends my husband and the OW have been fighting. I also received a promotion at work, almost double my salary. I give God the highest praise for my miracles. By faith I see my marriage restored. Hang in there, God is working.”  (South Africa) (posted 9/20/2016)
“God has spoken to me and given me many promises through His Word, giving me hope and strength through this journey. He has continually provided for my kids and me in supernatural ways. My own walk with Christ was in jeopardy because I was so devastated. Even though my spouse is now living with the OW in another county, God has already told me that it will not last. He has confirmed through many witnesses who are also praying and believing God with me. If you want God to move the mountain and do the impossible you have to dare to believe. The Lord still does miracles every single day. Do not count it strange that you are going through this crisis in your marriage. The devil hates God’s institution but is already a defeated foe. Don’t give up hope, do your part, faith without works is dead…having done all you can, continue to stand!”  (California) (posted 9/20/2016)
“God is faithful. I have stopped standing so many times in the last few years. God gave me the scripture John 14:1 and I am learning His will for my marriage. We are not restored yet and haven’t had much communication other than the kids, but God is working on my behalf. My husband has asked to help pay some of my bills. Sometimes he is even polite. I know the Lord will continue to strengthen me. God has supplied all my needs. I am back in school, finishing my degree. Standers, don’t be discouraged. Stand on the promises God has given you. One day I will have a full testimony; until then I will be praying for all prodigals across the world including mine. Thanking the Lord for my suddenly.”  (Tennessee) (posted 9/20/2016)
“Praise God. After many, many years of no talking, my husband and I sat and spoke with each other. My mother-in-law even joined us in prayer. We have agreed to be friends. It is a start. Keep the faith and be encouraged. This is ALL on God’s timetable.”  (New York) (posted 9/20/2016)
“What a journey this has been. Many years ago I stumbled upon RMM during a difficult time in my marriage, and become a stander. However, I became discouraged and gave up my stand. But God! Sometime this year, after another difficult year where I almost went through with a divorce, I was led to RMM again. This time, God has given me a peace that passes all understanding. My husband is a live-in prodigal and it is not easy at times. But I am learning to zip my lips, trust in God, and I am seeing a softening in my husband. I continue to stand and have to admit that the softening in my husband is a direct result of my unconditional love. I am letting God have His perfect way. In the meantime, I’m standing on His Word and enjoying perfect peace (Isaiah 26:3). One day, I too will have a testimony of my suddenly and of God’s faithfulness, so that others can be blessed also.”  (Suriname – next to Guyana) I looked it up for us to know. – Charlyne (posted 9/20/2016)
“I have been divorced from my beloved for a long time but we have contact and are friends. The other day I was reading some old saved emails from him where we were teasing and joking with each other. I was sad that I can’t do that now and silently wished that we could get back to doing that. Later that evening, my husband texted me and we ended up texting for a while and teasing and joking with each other, just like in the old emails. I didn’t pray for that to happen, but my Heavenly Father knew that I had wished for that in my heart earlier that day and by His love and grace, He granted my wish! What a loving Father we have! He knew what I wanted without me ever saying a word, He just looked into my heart. I ended the conversation with my beloved telling him that I am here for him if he ever needs anything. He didn’t say anything after that but I was happy to be able to show him God’s love and plant a seed.”  (Indiana) (posted 9/20/2016)
“What I promised you, I’m still going to make come to pass! God is still on the throne; what God has started in your life; He will make it happen. I encourage anyone reading this to never give up. I have been praying lately for signs that my husband loves me and have been longing to hear his voice. Praise the Lord, my husband called three times today. He spoke of coming home and told me he loved me and the children. He told me he has booked a flight to come home from the state where he is staying. He even told me I am the only woman worth his time. The Lord has softened his heart towards me and our marriage! Not only were my prayers answered but in the same moment my husband plans to fly home in two weeks. How suddenly and amazing is that? Never give up hope for the Lord will work all things together for your good!”  (Indiana) (posted 9/20/2016)
“PTL. My husband is home for a couple of months now. We were separated for a few years. Through prayer and fasting, he came home. We are working on our marriage. It is not easy but we are getting there. I am praying that he will seek God and be delivered from adultery as it seems he is still seeing the other woman. But God is greater. As He brought him home, He will change him. 1 John 4:4 is the verse I’m holding on to.”  (South Africa) (posted 9/20/2016)
