Restored Marriage Testimonies

restored_header2

Much of what we do through Rejoice Marriage Ministries, Inc. is measured against how it would have affected me when Bob and I were divorced, and then after we remarried.

We receive many notices of spouses coming home each week. From that joyful date, it is going to take the couple about two years to heal the hurts, forget that other person, and to reconcile. Only then will they be ready to help other couples. We will never knowingly harm a struggling couple by publishing a premature restoration report. We hear of too many prodigals who leave again, because too much was being said.

These pages are not intended to be a report of all Rejoice restored marriages. Neither are they trophies for this Ministry. They are published to give you hope and encouragement.

“A few years ago I began standing for my marriage. It looked hopeless but God did not let me turn away. From the very beginning He surrounded me with people to feed me His Word and encourage me when I was doubting. He taught me how to listen and hear Him and He has been so faithful. He has moved mountains I thought were immovable. My husband is back home over a year now and we are expecting twins. I am still praying and standing for my husband as he is still running from the Lord. But God, He is faithful and I know as for me and my HOUSE we will serve the Lord. We will be His people and He will be our God. All of us, including my husband. God is ‘never late, always on time’ As the truck in front of me read one day as I begged God to restore my marriage and my husband’s faith, ‘I know it’s coming.’ Thank you for your ministry and thank you for sharing God’s promises.”  (New York) (posted 1/25/2016)
Praise be to God, our marriage was restored. I want to thank you for all of the inspiration from Charlyne and Bob. What I learned about seeking God, and staying in His Word and following His commandments were all God wanted me to do. Our spouses are not the enemies; it is truly the enemy working in them. We have to pray without ceasing and ask the Lord what is it He wants us to do. God does hear every prayer and every tear. His grace is sufficient. And now that we are restored I can’t stop. I still stay prayerful and I try in all things to give thanks. I have learned and am still learning to submit and be a good example, and to always speak in love. I forgive daily and I’ve learned not to judge. Glory to God, we are now on a 21-day fast together. But God! It’s as if the time he was away didn’t occur to some extent. We love and respect each other.”  (Illinois) (posted 1/25/2016)

“Praise be to God for the great things He has done. My journey started many years ago. As a backslider, God was using this process to bring restoration of his Holy Spirit in my life. Praise God, I’ve been completely transformed by His grace! God humbled me and got my attention. God not only wanted to bless my life, but He also wanted to use me to bring salvation to my husband’s life by showing him the love of God. I realized then that I was in a spiritual battle, and that God had a plan and a purpose for it. My husband’s been baptized and he loves preaching to his co-workers about God. He did not renew his lease on his apartment, and is planning to move back home. God comforts me daily with many dreams. ‘For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.’ Habakkuk 2:3 (NKJV). Keep the faith standers.”  (Maryland) (posted 1/10/2016)
“Many times we pray for something and we don’t know how God is going to do it, but our faith and trust in God can move mountains. I found this ministry and took a stand for God to touch my prodigal spouse’s heart and restore our marriage. After weeks turned to months, I began to get weary and frustrated and accept the enemy’s lies saying it’s over, you need to move on. Don’t accept the lies of the enemy. I am a living testimony that God works miracles and He worked a suddenly miracle in my life. My husband came home, gave his life to God and our marriage is restored. Stand on the Word that declares with men this is impossible but with God all things are possible. Mark 10:27. To my fellow standers, keep standing strong. God heals broken and dead marriages.”  (Virginia) (posted 1/10/2016)
“My husband and I have been under the same roof for some time now. The first several months were filled with fighting and so painful, but I continued to pray and we both tried so hard to make things work. One of our biggest obstacles was a job that he was basically worshiping, an alcohol- based business that really stole his soul, and ‘friends’ there who turned him against our church. He lost his job in a series of events only God could have orchestrated. He thought his life was over, but it became a turning point in our marriage. We still have our ups and downs, and he doesn’t want to go to church, but he prays with our children every night. And I honestly feel loved by him again, something I had almost resolved I would have to live without, in order to do God’s will by staying in this marriage. But God is amazing and has restored pieces of us I thought were gone forever.”  (Utah) (posted 1/6/2016)
“We just returned from a family Christmas trip to my husband’s country of origin. We hadn’t been for several years as a family and had never been for Christmas. Last year my husband went without us. But this year we had a wonderful trip full of happy memories of better days and we enjoyed each other’s company and the company of our children and extended family. We are not where we should be yet, but are so far from where we’ve been that I must praise God. He introduced me to many people – I’ve not been referred to as ‘my wife’ so many times in many years. I would never have considered this possible even four months ago. Not only that, God’s provision was clear throughout the planning and the trip. Thank You Lord for Your faithfulness.”  (Ohio) (posted 1/6/2016)
“I just wanted to stop by and say thank you for both your Saturday and Lunch Time testimonies. My husband and I got a divorce and with all the problems we were having, I never thought we would be remarried less than a year later. I was told by my co-worker to check out RMM and, after many internal fights, I did. After reading many testimonies, I decided it was time for me to stand. Not too long after I started standing, my husband told me that he wanted me to change my last name back and three days later we were married. Thank you so much for your words of encouragement and stand strong. Your suddenly can and will be around the bend.”  (Missouri) (posted 1/6/2016)

Thank You Lord! The glory is all Yours! My prodigal husband has finally returned home. It has been a slow process but we are finally together as a family again. There is a lot of work to do still but God is leading the way this time. Do not get discouraged, keep praying, fasting and do not take your eyes from the Lord! He is the way! There will be times where Satan will try to confuse you and play tricks with your mind.  Just keep your focus on the Lord and repeat to yourself, ‘Jesus I trust in You.’ Nothing is impossible for the Lord. He can and will restore your marriage if you abandon yourself completely in Him and trust Him. Keep praying for your prodigals! Do not lose faith! God is ready to do a miracle for you, you just need to trust.”  (Florida) (posted 1/6/2016)
“To God be the glory. My husband is home and our family is together again just in time for Christmas. We were separated for some months and he left for an OW. He did come back once but the OW announced a pregnancy and he was right back out the door. I was devastated, filled with anger and overwhelmed with bitterness. But God… He did not forsake me or let me give up. He said you can’t change or control anyone but you can do that for yourself. Seek Me, repent of your sins and I will show you how much I love you and your husband. From that time on I noticed a change in me and my responses to others and my spouse. I could not explain the joy and love I felt. My husband noticed it as well and then he changed too. Finally he asked to come home. Yesterday, on my birthday, he moved back completely. Today at church he cried and gave his life back to God. God loves us and our spouse more than we will ever know. Be relentless in Him and just believe. Go now, prepare for your spouse to come home.”  (Barbados) (posted 1/6/2016)
“My SUDDENLY has come and it indeed came suddenly! My God is awesome! There are no words to describe how I feel right now. There is so much I can say and testify to. What Satan tried to convince me of was a lie all along and when I thought nothing was being fixed or my prayers weren’t being heard, God was working. He heard every single one and I got the answers to so many prayers and questions today! My husband is coming home and ready to remarry. He said nothing went right the whole time we were separated and then divorced and he finally had to give in to God and listen. This was not easy and the work continues now as a team, as we rebuild on the solid rock of Jesus Christ. Hold on standers. God sees, cares, knows and will deliver! God be praised!”  (Connecticut) (posted 1/6/2016)
“A very blessed Christmas to everyone! My family is celebrating our second Christmas together since our God Almighty restored our marriage. We serve a living God, whose love never fails. Who is always there to equip us with the strength we need to remain obedient and faithful to Him, for He longs to bless us and give us the abundant lives He promised. Please pray without ceasing and God will unfold before your very eyes His amazing plan for you, your marriage and family! God bless all of you!”  (California) (posted 1/6/2016)
“Praise the Lord, for He is mighty and faithful. My husband came back after many months of struggling and separation. We used to fight and quarrel and I failed to submit to my husband. Thank you so much Rejoice Marriage Ministries; your messages and daily devotions are so encouraging especially in times of darkness and grief. To all the fellow standers out there who continue to pray for each and everyone in Jesus’ name, I sincerely thank you as well. Let us never cease in prayer, being hopeful and faithful to our loving God and prodigals. I thank God for showing me love is without fear, asking me to love unconditionally and to trust in His deliverance and words. I will continue to stand and pray for you all, my dear brothers and sisters in Christ.”  (Malaysia) (posted 1/6/2016)
“Hello all my fellow standers and happy holidays. May the Lord God bless you and your families this holiday season. I just wanted tell you all to please continue standing and don’t give up. I know it’s hard this time of the year but God is with you and He knows your hearts. Continue to lean on Him for your every need. He will not fail you. My husband has been home for a couple of months now, and it hasn’t been that easy. But God is working on us and is blessing us every week. We still have our bad days but the Lord brings us back in harmony with one another and we’re able to forgive each other quickly. I praise God for what He has done and what He is still doing. My husband and I went to church together for the first time in a few years. I was in awe as I watched my husband praying and praising God. God is so great and faithful to His word. Please keep standing and praying. Your suddenly is coming. Stay blessed.”  (Georgia) (posted 1/6/2016)
“Praise God Almighty. Standers, never give up, even when doubt and circumstances momentarily get the better of you. STAND UP, read the Standers Affirmation out loud, and stand on God’s Word. And yes, it is true…it only takes one spouse to firmly stand and believe, and God will honor that. This Christmas, my family is reunited! Everyone around me gave up hope, but if God is for us (and for His sacred institution of marriage), who can be against us. I thank you for this ministry that taught me valuable lessons, and I thank every prayer warrior. I will continue to pray for other standers and spread the word. Hallelujah!”  (South Africa) (posted 12/22/2015)
“I just wanted to share some encouragement with all standers out there. My marriage has been restored for a few years now and I am thankful every day. I was reminded this morning of one of my praises that I wanted to share. When we separated, the picture of our son and me had disappeared from my husband’s wallet. I assumed it was thrown away. Many years later I met my husband at work with his favorite dinner and he showed me around his shop. In his tool box was that picture I had assumed was trashed years before. He kept it the entire time and valued it. It was about a month later he came home. My advice, don’t listen to assumptions, listen to what God is saying. Stand strong, for God will prove Himself faithful. You only need to be still! Merry Christmas and be blessed!”  (New York) (posted 12/22/2015)
“Thanks to a lot of prayers and faith, my wonderful husband has returned home and we are restoring our marriage and life together and calling off the divorce. Thank You God for all Your blessings. When things looked bleak and dim I turned to You and You worked in my husband’s life and heart and returned him to me. He learned the grass isn’t greener on the other side of the fence and that he should count his blessings. I learned the same and we both learned to turn more to God. He had trouble eating and sleeping and was lonely and after a lot of prayers and talking to God and each other, we have made it work. Praise the Father, Son and Holy Spirit!”  (Pennsylvania) (posted 12/22/2015)
“My suddenly happened! The week leading up to it was hard because the enemy had really stepped up the attacks. I seriously considered giving up. Thankfully, God was there to encourage me and carry me through. Since the beginning of my stand God gave me Obadiah 1:3-4. I had also written a prayer in that book about God’s promises for our marriage. So during prayer and devotion time this past weekend God gave me Obadiah. He’s given it to me in the past when I felt discouraged so I just thanked Him for encouraging me and I went to sleep. That night my prodigal showed up at my doorstep. He had gotten in an argument with the OW and during the argument he said all he kept thinking about was what he had done wrong in our relationship. He was a little shocked but I didn’t ask any questions (PTL, He let me zip my lips). I’ve got to say that I’m still a little scared I won’t do it right; but I know that God is in control and I just need to continue to stand for my husband.”  (Kansas) (posted 12/22/2015)
“Hallelujah!! My husband came home again but this time he took me to the other woman to apologize in front of me and sever those ties. Even though that other woman refused to severe those ties with my husband, he made action to save our marriage, he did what it took to save our marriage. I prayed God will show him who she really is and that he will sever those ties and let go of her and be exposed and turn to God with true sorrow, for godly repentance and turn from his wicked ways. I prayed for years to sever those ties and God heard me. He is bringing my husband out, saving our marriage and turning my husband’s heart back to Him.”  (Florida) (posted 12/16/2015)
“Giving honor to God for all He has done. Several months ago my prodigal left our home and today he is back for good. In faith, I started to type this testimony before he physically moved backed in. By faith, I believed I would be able to post my testimony one day and here it is. I believed God was moving him back home in the spiritual realm even though my eyes could not see it. It took much prayer, fasting, reading God’s Word, attending church, and reading the RMM testimonies for encouragement to get through the wilderness. It was not easy going through one of the most trying periods of my life. Many nights I cried and felt deep despair. The process was gradual but today we are back together now and both need to heal from the hurt we caused each other. Right before he came home I almost gave up because I was frustrated, but I kept holding on and it happened suddenly. Keep standing standers and PLEASE don’t give up. By faith, you will be writing your testimony as well.”  (Massachusetts) (posted 12/16/2015)

“Praise the Lord, my prodigal has come home! For many, many months I heard that he was never coming back, he’d found the love of his life, he was going to divorce me and marry her, he was never happy until now – all lies! But God! The Holy Spirit was always at work on his heart. He hardly slept, hardly ate, his life was constant stress. I began to believe his lies and that this was going to last much longer. Then suddenly! One day he showed up to get the boys and while they gathered their things, he suddenly broke down into tears. The Holy Spirit had done His work and my husband had abruptly ended things with the OW! Last holiday season I wondered often what this year would be like. Divorced? Alone or sharing the kids? But God! But God! But God! We are together in a new home with new hearts of Thanksgiving!”  (South Carolina) (posted 12/6/2015)

“Praise the Lord! My husband moved back in this week. Although it was a ‘suddenly’ move, I was expecting it to happen. Our family will be together just in time for the holidays. A far cry from last year. God has been so faithful even when my faith wavered. I had to get to a place of surrender. Now my faith is stronger and I know the Lord is rebuilding and restoring our marriage, never to be broken again! I will continue to minister to him as I’ve been doing over the last few months. I believe this helped to bring him home, knowing I was in a different place spiritually. Everyone is happy (including him) as he had been broken. The Lord gave me this scripture to remember: Isaiah 43:18-19. Praying for all marriages and standers. The enemy is defeated.”  (New Jersey) (posted 12/2/2015)
“PTL! Our marriage is restored. I was the prodigal spouse and my husband divorced me. Both of us had second marriages and children. My second marriage to the OM was a disaster. His marriage to the OW was a disaster as well. After finding RMM, I started praying for my husband to come home. At first I thought I was praying for the OM to come. God revealed to me that the prayers were for my first husband. Living in separate states, we started speaking daily multiple times. My husband came home and we had many false starts. This month we got remarried after 20 years of being divorced. Don’t give up hope and never give up praying.”  (California) (posted 12/2/2015)
“I’m like some of you in that my prodigal is home but very confused. He told me that he felt like Jonah, just doing what he had to but with no heart in it. I’m thankful for this website because it has kept me focused and on my knees. I have failed a couple of times but God, who is full of mercy and compassion, lifts me up every time. I was feeling so discouraged a couple of days ago and reading God’s Word, He gave me Isaiah 56:1-2b (KJV) Thus saith the Lord, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed. Blessed is the man that doeth this. God gives us all we need if we just listen and continue to submit to His will. God said my salvation is near and we are blessed if we continue to do what is right. We cannot quit because I believe that our full restoration is just around the corner and God will restore unto us what was stolen. Joel 2:25-27. Never, never give up!”  (Texas) (posted 12/2/2015)
“Give God praise and thank him for all that he is doing in our lives. I have been struggling for a while trusting that standing was what the Lord really wanted me to do. God knows when we need reminding of His power. A vendor came in my office the other day. This person is not a Christian, does not know me or what is going on in my marriage. Her co-worker is gone for the week because he got remarried! I looked up and said, ‘What?’ She explained to me that he was divorced and he remarried his wife. I started to cry and told her, ‘The Lord brought you in here to tell me this.’  That was God saying, ‘Look what I did. I am showing you firsthand!’ Today I had a chance to meet him and wow, what a blessing! I was able to share with him about my stand. He told me don’t give up! ‘Be still and know that I am God.’ Psalm 46:10.”  (California) (posted 12/2/2015)
“Here’s a glorious praise! My husband and I, after nearly losing our marriage to a prodigal heart and adulterous relationship, renewed our wedding vows in front of friends and families last night! We lived overseas for several years, ministering and sharing the gospel. Along the way, my husband’s family faced a terrible crisis, and he began to question life, his faith, and our marriage. Unfortunately, during this time, he stumbled onto a prodigal path. It was a season of such heartache and chaos! By God’s amazing grace, He protected us – brought us home together, surrounded us with godly believers, and led us into solid biblical marriage counseling. Rejoice Marriage Ministries was a key to helping me learn how to stand for my marriage, to walk well with the Lord through the storms, to shelter our kids, and to love my husband unconditionally. We have such hope for the future now! Thank You, Jesus and thank you, Rejoice Marriage Ministries! Psalm 40: 1-5.”  (Indiana) (posted 12/2/2015)

“All glory to the most high God. I am a stander who decided to trust God to change me first, and then believe God for the restoration of my marriage. I have had my brief moments of wanting to quit but I continued to believe God will do this. His Word will not return void, it will accomplish what He sent it to do. As soon as I made a decision to stand regardless of what was going on, to go to my standing scriptures when the Lord first began to change me, Joel 2:25-27, my suddenly happened. The Lord sent my husband home, praise God. I didn’t know when but I knew in my spirit that God was not finished with us, and He had to work in me. Standers, please don’t quit. Allow God to heal you first, and stay connected to our Father, standing in faith, believing God, and He will do it! God bless.”  (Florida) (posted 12/2/2015)
“I thank God every day my husband found Bob and Charlyne. I was the one who gave up in our marriage. He always says he prayed me home. And it worked. We are stronger than we have ever been before. It is not always easy but we find a way through God and prayer to push through our struggles. I cannot imagine where my life would be if my husband hadn’t been strong enough to keep his faith in me even when I had given up on myself. Stay strong, keep praying, it will happen for you. ‘Faith makes things possible, not easy!’ God bless you.”  (Texas) (posted 12/2/2015)

“After several years of separation, my husband came home. It was unexpected even though I knew from God’s guidance he would come home. The first week was awesome, but Satan is really attacking and causing my husband to feel confused. I know from this website that I cannot stop standing. God gave me my suddenly and I believe His promises that my marriage will be better than I can even hope for. Standers, don’t lose hope. Keep the faith and remember that you must continue your stand for life. If God is for us, who can be against us and succeed.”  (North Carolina) (posted 12/2/2015)
“Praise the Lord! After moving out of our home several months ago, my husband is finally back home again! It has been the hardest journey I have ever had to go through. But after a few false starts back home and quite a few of my own ‘I’m just going to give up!’…. being impatient, with shaken faith, and after unsuccessful attempts at taking control of the situation, I surrendered my husband and marriage over to God. Things have been so wonderful since he has been home, but I know that full restoration is not over. Even so, I have so much faith and obedience to God and I know that with God leading our marriage, we will succeed. We will never open a door for Satan to try and steal, kill, and destroy our family again. Don’t give up! There is so much power in prayer and in the Lord! God bless!”  (Colorado) (posted 12/2/2015)

There is still a lot of work to be done but as Philippians 1:6 says, ‘I am confident of this, that He who began a good work in (us) will carry it on to completion until the day of Jesus Christ.’ Be encouraged.

I know I must continue to fast and pray and trust my God to heal our marriage and keep him here. I pray he will turn his heart to God and sever all soul ties with the OW.

“I stumbled across your website, and want to say how thankful I am for your ministry. My mom and dad went through a divorce after 24 years of marriage. He left, involved with another woman. My godly mother stood for her marriage and bravely fought the spiritual battle. Ten years later they were remarried. That was over 18 years ago. I am thankful for her example that encouraged me to stand on God’s Word when my family was attacked in a different way. God is good and He keeps His promises. We can trust Him! I am glad to know there is someone like yourself encouraging others to fight this battle and stand for their marriages. As you know, there are very few voices like yours in this wilderness we travel.”  (Louisiana) What a testimony from a child who experienced divorce and her parents remarried!  What a praise that she stumbled across our website and found our Testimony pages for her to share with us!  To God be the glory!  The Lord wants you to be encouraged and keep standing firm as this is God’s will for all marriages. – Charlyne (posted 11/18/2015)
“It’s been a short time since the Lord brought my husband home. And let me tell you, Satan is trying his best to ruin the restoration process. But God wins everyday! I’m still learning to trust the Lord completely. I always pray the Lord helps me zip my lips, and repent for when I don’t. I still make sure to pray for my husband and myself every day, covering us with the blood of Christ and scriptures. But praise be to God, my husband is actually testifying to his own family and friends about how God led him back home. He gives God all the glory! Praise God! There is still a ways to go but I continue to put it all in God’s hands. Keep praying! Keep standing! GOD IS WORKING! Believe that with all your heart even if you don’t see or hear anything. Have faith! God will deliver! Praise His Name and don’t stop!”  (Georgia) (posted 11/18/2015)
“After being separated for many months, I am so happy to share that my husband and I are now living under the same roof again. The birth of our first child and wedding anniversary will happen in the same month! I knew God would do it, but I was often caught up on the ‘when.’ God used this time of separation to mold and shape me into who He created me to be. It’s amazing how much I’ve changed, and God deserves all the glory and honor. There were so many times that I wanted to give up, but God consistently did something to renew my faith and refuel my stand. ‘Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her.’  Luke 1:45. I am indeed blessed!”  (Virginia) (posted 11/18/2015)
“God is beyond faithful! He has won AGAIN! God has brought my husband from the far country. He has given his life back to God and has come back home. He now addresses me as his wife, favor, and queen again. We have had many false starts even to the point that the last time I was giving up. BUT GOD! During this last separation, I waited on God and His timing and my scripture that I stood on was Romans 8:28. God is amazing and now we will be welcoming our first child together as a family!”  (Mississippi) (posted 11/18/2015)
“This is my second time to submit a testimony. My first time was a few weeks after my prodigal spouse returned home after several months of separation and pending divorce. I am so happy to say it’s been more than a year later and our marriage is stronger than ever! I praise God for what He has done for us. I remember my thoughts were so limited and small at the time. I was so discouraged and defeated, asking God only to help me get through, survive, and get by on my own. Thankfully God had bigger plans than mine! He enabled me to forgive my spouse and He caused my spouse to feel true sorrow for his wrongs. I want to encourage all standers to never give up and to open your hearts to God’s plan of forgiveness and reconciliation for your marriages and families. Understand that many times, the sorrow comes AFTER forgiveness and BECAUSE of forgiveness so do not expect or wait on your spouse’s sorrow to come first. Choose forgiveness first and watch God bless you and your families!”  (Arkansas) (posted 11/12/2015)
“We are very happy to report that we have a restored marriage now for five years, thanks to God, and to this ministry. Because you did not give up on your marriage, you made it possible for us and many others to stop the devil’s scheme of divorce. We were separated for several years and he was just like Bob, claiming he was never coming back home. He urged me many times to continue with my life. The devil never stopped throwing stones at me but God was faithful to the very end. The closer we got to restoration, the harder the devil schemed to pull us apart. I spoke about restoration and God’s promises and many family and friends thought I was losing my mind. And here we are living proof that miracles do happen. Just like Charlyne’s teachings, my husband came back suddenly. What attracted my husband back to me? He saw Jesus in me and through me.”  (California) (posted 11/12/2015)
“My husband has been home a few months now and we are working through things with a counselor and a long road ahead. I was worried about our anniversary, and to my shock he surprised me and took me to the boutique hotel restaurant where we had our reception. He apologized for missing my birthday and anniversary presents. I was so happy and he is still talking about how special our anniversary was this year. I finally feel hope again that we are going to make it. God knew what was best and how to do it. To God be the glory, great things He has done. If you are discouraged, don’t give up.”  (Florida) (posted 11/12/2015)
“I was a prodigal and divorced my wife thinking, ‘I could do better.’ We both remarried others and both of our marriages ended in disaster just weeks apart. I turned to God for guidance and asked Him to lead me to the wife He has for me…old or new. My covenant and I started seeing each other last year and she said God had spoken to her and told her to come back to me. God had not revealed this to me and I told her I would pray about it. She became impatient, stopped speaking to me and started seeing someone else. I kept praying and God spoke to me. Using misunderstandings and our pride as his weapon of choice, Satan tried to block our restoration. We’ve since reconnected and she told me no matter many times she tried to ‘move on,’ God kept leading her back to me. You cannot escape the will of God. God is the architect of our restoration and His will will be done. Wait and trust Him and you will receive what’s promised for He knows the plans He has for us. Jeremiah 29:11.”  (California) (posted 11/12/2015)
“I want to give all the praise and glory to God for giving me so many things, so many blessings, so much love, so much care, and so much grace in this waiting season. I want to share a colleague’s testimony who was divorced but now, after several years, God has reunited them again. It is surprising to see her now – gentle, loving, recognizing that their children needed their father, happy, calm, telling me that she is in shock because she can’t believe it. Seeing her restoration gave me much encouragement, strengthened my faith and more as I have seen how she was, the way she used to speak to her husband. It was very beautiful to hear this testimony. God is the God of the impossible. To Him be the glory, praise and honor, our love, our attention, our confidence, our delight!”  (Colombia) (posted 11/12/2015)
