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.

“After many years, my in-home prodigal has been home full time for a few months. It has been a very slow restoration process with several attempts by the OW to get my husband to come back to her, but God is faithful and has kept him home. There were so many times over the years I wanted to quit, but God wouldn’t let me and would give me encouragement when I needed it the most. God has answered many prayers and is working on my prodigal’s heart, putting laborers in his path which I pray all the time. It is harder at times when our prodigals return but I am trusting God to complete His purpose in our lives and marriage. Never, never, never give up. God is moving and working all things together for our good. Praise His name!”  (New York) (posted 3/20/2017)
“I want to praise God for encouraging me to never give up even after many, many years of separation. Through a series of ‘Godincidences,’ my prodigal is home and we are facing together the consequences of his many years in the far country. God gave me Psalm 92:6-7 right before he came home. Never, ever give up! If God could bring my husband home, He can do anything! It took many years but God’s love carried me along. I thank you Lord, RMM, and all standers who have shared their testimonies that gave me hope. To God be the glory!”  (California) (posted 3/20/2017)
“My wife and I separated followed by divorce proceedings. I was completely broken by the incident. I went after her for a reconciliation but she was adamant over her decision. I went to her parents and siblings seeking the same matter, but they all supported her. It was at this time that I registered myself at RMM and started praying over the issue. Months passed. I was discouraged because I couldn’t see sign of any progress. Finally, one day in a prayer meeting, God spoke to me through a pastor saying that my prayer is heard, my family will be restored back to me in November. To my surprise, in November one day, my wife called me and apologized for everything. God did what He said. Our God is a living God, He makes everything beautiful in its time.”  (Ireland) (posted 3/20/2017)
“A few years ago, I discovered a billboard of RMM on a trip to see my parents. Since that time, I have walked in faith and grown so much spiritually. My husband returned home several months ago after several years of separation. As many of you know, the road is long and the Lord is the only One with the answers. But God worked His miracles and brought my husband home, humble and thirsting for life once again. Please don’t give up and keep those lips zipped. Love as Jesus loves and the reward will be great!”  (Mississippi) (posted 3/14/2017)
“My spouse came home over two years ago. God is so amazing! He is our hope. Continue believing for your miracle. God is faithful and nothing is impossible with our God. Thank You, God, and Rejoice Marriage Ministries for giving me the courage to wait for my spouse to come home. Praying for marriages around the world to be resurrected from the ashes of our circumstances and transformed into what God has planned. God bless you and your marriages.”  (Wyoming) (posted 3/14/2017)

“I just feel compelled to share today. This road to restoration is like climbing a ladder. You must keep looking up and you cannot look down. My marriage is mostly restored. PTL. My family is getting closer but still worlds away. I still have a child in the far country but I am praying that she will come around fully. I have been seeing changes. I know that the Lord has great things for us if we can ‘be still’ and let the Lord breathe life into those dried bones. You cannot make anyone do anything in this world but the Lord can! I do not know where this is coming from or who it is for, but do not let your pride ruin His work. Pride can cause far more hurt in this world that is not the work of the Lord. Remember that. Philippians 2:3, Proverbs 8:13 and 11:2, 13:10 and 16:5. Maybe it was me that needed to see them.”  (Virginia) (posted 3/8/2017)
“I am here to testify that God is working in my life! I have been separated for several months. We are working toward rebuilding our life together and starting off as friends again. The other guy went back to his wife to reconcile his marriage, but still wants a friendship with my wife. Of course, I am not OK with that, but I cannot stop them from talking. I continue to pray that God will heal her heart and let me back in and protect her from the enemy and his tricks. I have seen how God is working to bring us back together. I have put all my worries, burdens, and problems in God’s hands. I look to Philippians 4:6-7 – Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank Him for all he has done. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen!”  (Tennessee) (posted 3/8/2017)
“How great is God! Each promise has been accomplished. Nothing is impossible with Him. I really have no doubt how this ministry helped me to stand for my marriage that was totally dead, with a divorce going on last year. But sister Charlyne kept telling us to wait for our suddenly, when God begins to restore our marriages. God really works when we remain faithful, but most of all, believing that He can do everything. After my husband filed for a divorce last year, he came home saying that he can’t keep going anymore with his miserable life, and wanting to fix things with me. I couldn’t believe it, but immediately I remembered each of the emails sent by this ministry. I never imagined my prodigal would be coming back home.”  (Nicaragua) (posted 3/8/2017)
“God is great! One of the marriages I’ve being praying for is being restored and they will remarry very soon! But God! I believe my miracle is already done, too. Today in church a lady told me her story about her divorce. I shared with her what I had learned. Glory to God! Some news came in my social media about a site of attorneys, and at first I felt full of indignation, but then I decided to share Charlyne’s devotional, Restoration of Your Marriage, Your Call.’ May God work in those persons to read it and obey! The enemy is against my family, but I am against him in Jesus’ Name!”  (Puerto Rico) (posted 3/8/2017)
“This is the day that the Lord has made, let is rejoice in be glad in it. Don’t give up and don’t give in, victory is ours. After years of being divorced, my marriage is restored on the solid foundation of Jesus Christ. To God be the glory for the wonderful things He has done. Never stop believing God is the God of marriage restoration. Have faith in God and all things are possible. He makes all things beautiful in His time. Trust Him.”  (New Hampshire) (posted 2/27/2017)
“Praise God! My suddenly happened! I’ve been separated from my husband and he told me he only wanted to be my friend. He said he would never change his mind. I have been praying every day for God to speak to him. Just last night I prayed for him. I knew he was coming over to mow the lawn while I was at work. I asked God to let him feel love when he entered the house. I asked God to put a burning desire in his heart to reunite with his family. He called me today and said that when he entered the house he didn’t know what it was but he felt something. He said that he has seen a change in me that has made him want to work on our marriage. Praise God! He asked to come home. We know we have a lot of work to do but we are willing to do it. And this time we will make sure that God is the center of our lives and the head of our house. There is hope. God answers prayers. All you have to do is trust Him.”  (Louisiana) (posted 2/27/2017)
“I have waited to write this testimony because I had read about false starts/returns. My spouse slowly returned last year, and fully came home several months ago. It took many months to talk about it. I put in practice what I learned here. JUST LOVE HIM. I was reluctant to praise God at first, not sure if it would ‘stick,’ then one day he talked about it. He said, ‘I knew you were praying, I felt it. I may not have wanted to hear what you had to say, but you said what God told you to say anyway. I know it was Him speaking through you, because He was not leaving me alone no matter how hard I tried, and it was SO dark where I was. I am grateful for you, for your prayers, that you obeyed God, and you didn’t give up on me when I did everything I could to make you walk away. I know for sure God put love in my heart for you more than ever, because I tried to ignore it, but my love for you never diminished. I know that I am alive today because you prayed.’”  (California) (posted 2/27/2017)

“To God be all the honor and glory! My prodigal has been home for several months! We almost had another false start, due to me not ‘zipping my lips.’ I kept questioning and investigating my husband. He found out and had actually left home with his clothes and our savings. But praise the Lord he came back that same day! Ever since, things are getting better little by little. Every day he sits and talks about the OW, and I offer my support and prayers. It hurts but I know God will remove the OW from my husband’s mind and heart ‘suddenly.’ One day my husband told me, ‘Thank you for being there, I know it’s hard. I have no idea how you do it.’ That same day the Lord gave me a new rhema word, Psalm 27:13-14, and also an answer to my husband.”  (California) (posted 2/21/2017)
“DON’T GIVE UP! DON’T GIVE IN! God will do what He said in His timing. My wife asked me to leave her and my daughters because she wasn’t happy and didn’t love me anymore. I’ve been praying, crying, praying! Worshipping God, active in church since we separated many months ago. She said she’d never step into a church. She’s now going to her own church. We’ve been touchy feely with each other, peaceful, no arguments. It’s by no means 100 percent, but God gets all the glory! He can turn the hardest heart to flesh. Your faith in God must be stronger than your circumstances.  Don’t listen to the voice of your spouse. It’s the adversary. Pray and fast him off your marriage. You have the power from God. Place it at God’s feet and leave it alone. There will be pain, but you must remember, God is greater than anything. You must seek Him first. God gave me. Psalm 37, Isaiah 41:10, 1 Peter 5:10. Be strong and keep praying!”  (Ohio) (posted 2/21/2017)
“PTL. It’s been a while since I last submitted a testimony because I allowed the voice of the devil to lull the amazing work God is doing in my life. But I just want to praise and worship the Almighty God with this testimony and shame the devil. God has blessed me with so much peace. I am now able to love my spouse as he is. God is going to change him. Although our marriage is restored, he is still living in the far country and he is hinting at possibly having us move there. Early in our marriage, God said we would live together in the far country and I choose to stand on His promise for He is faithful and His timing is perfect. I woke up to Hosea 7:12 – When they go I will throw my net over them, I will pull them down like the birds in the sky. God is in control and no matter where my husband is, God is right there with him. Luke 1:45 Is my motivation during my stand. God is able. Keep standing standers, never give up.”  (Swaziland) (posted 2/21/2017)
“It happened suddenly but my husband is home to the glory of God. After him having kids with the OW, marrying her and divorcing me, he is now back home as the Lord had promised throughout the years. He appeared like he was enjoying his life but he now tells me he was miserable. This ministry taught me how to ‘zip my lips’ and pray with scriptures. I can tell everyone that God is always faithful even when we aren’t and His Word is true. Standers, don’t give up, have faith in the Word and pray the Word. Even after the return, keep praying and make prayer your lifestyle. Don’t let down your guard. Trust that the Lord who brought my husband home will do the same for you. Luke 1:37 was my scripture whenever it seemed like nothing was happening on the other side of the mountain.”  (South Africa) (posted 2/14/2017)
“I’m praising my Lord Jesus Christ not because my husband is back home but because through this trial I have drawn so near to the Lord. I have been separated from my husband for some time now and I’ve seen how things turn for the worst. My husband started the process of the divorce. I feel as if something broke in my heart but I also feel a sense of peace that I can’t explain. That night when my husband told me the bad news, I felt like God was speaking to my heart and saying, ‘Can’t you see that I have to break this old thing so I can make something new?’ Isaiah 43:19 (KJV) This scripture has blessed my heart and I have to trust God in whatever He is doing in my family’s life is all good no matter how it looks and feels. I had another opportunity to tell my husband that night that I would continue to stand for him forever. My pastor and his wife said this changes nothing. It’s only a piece of paper with no value in God’s eyes! God can do a miracle! Please don’t get discouraged!”  (Texas) (posted 2/14/2017)
“Praise God! My husband is home. We’ve had several false starts in the past several months. But I trust God that this time is the start for the rest of our lives. I pray for every stander and prodigal. The struggle is hard at times and sometimes so peaceful. But I put my full trust in our God. With Him, all things are possible. In Jesus’ name, a stander for life.”  (Louisiana) (posted 2/14/2017)
“My husband came across your website because I walked away from him and was living in my own place. He began praying for us and here I am, back home, and believing with God all things are possible. Thank you for inspiring him. We have been praying and reading our Bibles every day. The future can only become brighter. Amen.”  (Indiana) (posted 2/14/2017)
“PTL. I got separated from my wife several months ago. There was no communication between us. I was advised by families and friends to let go, forget the marriage and move on with my life. I was in so much pain and confused. God used my neighbor, who is also standing, to introduce RMM to me. The resources helped me. I kept reading testimonies of standers and my faith was renewed. I started fasting and praying for the restoration of my marriage. Communication was restored between me and my wife. I saw her after so many months. We were able to settle our differences. She’s right here beside me as I type this testimony. I serve a God who is living. Days ago, because of the way everything was, it looked hopeless, but when it was God’s time for my wife to come home, nothing could stop her. If God can do this, what is it He cannot do? PTL standers, keep standing, He will do it.”  (Nigeria) (posted 2/14/2017)
“Praise God! It is with great joy and thankfulness to the Lord that I can report that my husband is home! I had been standing for some time. Just like Charlyne’s story, all of my friends and family said, ‘Divorce him. Be done with him.’ But I stayed. I stood. I prayed. I knew God was going to restore my marriage. At the beginning, my stand was so hard. I had the hardest time ‘zipping my lips.’ It was only when I completely surrendered my husband to the Lord when my suddenly occurred. My love has been home for three months now; we are in the process of rebuilding our lives. God has completely transformed my husband! I’ve read so many testimonies saying, ‘Standers, stay strong. Don’t give up or give in.’ It is absolutely true! God WILL restore your marriage. He WILL touch your prodigal’s heart. Have faith. Sit quietly and wait on the Lord. He WILL do it. Thank You, Jesus!”  (Virginia) (posted 2/7/2017)
“Praise God. My beloved and I are together again. We are allowing God to lead us and are taking it slowly. Continue to pray for us to ‘Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness’ and for me to never stop standing. Please sisters and brothers, continue to trust God and don’t give up hope.”  (New York) (posted 2/7/2017)
“After a couple of years apart, during which my husband repeatedly said that he had no intention of ever coming home, he has moved back in! Although he is not a believer, he has also been to my church several times. God completely crushed him in his attempted life away from me; now God has reunited us in a better relationship than we had before.”  (California) (posted 2/7/2017)
“After some time of standing alone, my husband divorced me. RMM helped me through every difficult day he was gone. I developed a faith and peace never known. Testimonies gave me hope which died the day he divorced me. Peace was still mine and I carried on my life. He did as well. He stayed sober, got his business booming and got himself a girlfriend. I stayed faithful. Some months later he has returned to me, saying it was a mistake divorcing me and he should not have left me those years ago. It is surreal to have him back. In the past, I would have been hurt, bitter and unforgiving. Rejoice Marriage Ministries was at the center of helping me find my way through this and to having the faith and peace to accept him back. There is no doubt in my mind God is working in my marriage and all marriages. It is my prayer for you to receive the incredible strength through God as did I. What seems impossible alone is quite possible with God. Let my story encourage.”  (Illinois) (posted 2/7/2017)
“I’m sitting in my car praising God because today, 1:30 p.m., was supposed to be when the divorce was finalized! But God! He moved on my husband’s heart in a mighty way two weeks ago. My husband came to his senses after two false starts. He dismissed the divorce and contacted all the OW that he was talking to and told them that is married and will be staying with his wife. I’m in AWE watching how my husband and marriage is changing for the good before my eyes. My husband is so on fire for God. He wakes up and prays every morning and puts on the full armor of God. We are doing a 21-day Daniel Fast together, which will be his first time to fast. God, you are worthy and faithful. Standers, don’t look at what is going on around you. Hold fast to God’s promise and His Word. Trust God and know that your spouse is coming home in God’s timing which is the best time!”  (Texas) (posted 1/31/2017)
“Please do not give up hope! This time last year my husband was absent and active in drug and alcohol addiction. Every dark cloud surrounded me and it seemed as if the more I prayed the worse things got. I remained in prayer and walked by faith. My husband is now home, paying ALL the bills and loves his new job. We moved to a new area and we have devotions every morning. He prays and is now leading his family to Christ. Recently, I saw a warehouse by my home with more than a dozen Covenant Transport trucks parked. This was God confirming another healed marriage. Praise the King of Kings!”  (Pennsylvania) (posted 1/31/2017)
“Some time ago my husband of 20+ years committed adultery. In my broken fury, I threw him out of the house. By the next day, all anger had disappeared and only hurt remained and I knew that God put forgiveness in my heart and the hope of restoration. But my husband would not hear of it, and continued his affair even going so far as filing for divorce and asking the OW to marry him. He literally moved away to a far country and felt no remorse (or so it seemed). After he had been gone a few months, he wrote me to tell me that he can’t stop thinking about me and that he misses the kids more than he thought possible. Right now, he is on his way back to our country. When I asked how long he was coming for he said ‘forever.’ When I first tuned into RMM, I thought they were all crazy: waiting on cheating spouses who abandoned families. But God kept drawing me back and having me pray for restoration, and now my husband is on his way back! God is able. Don’t quit.”  (Canada) (posted 1/31/2017)

“I just want to thank God for His faithfulness. My husband left our home and told me He would never come back. I continued trusting God for restoration and the testimonies of other standers helped me have hope regardless. I write this testimony because God has restored my marriage. My husband invited me for a dinner with our children. He spent hours with us. He told me that he has canceled the divorce and agreed for us to go through counseling. He is moving back to the house later this month. God still answers my beautiful standers. This was the third divorce my husband filed against me. But, in all three attempts, God has turned the mess into a message. I will continue praying for our spouses. God bless us all.”  (South Africa) (posted 1/23/2017)
“My husband has returned home after a couple years of being divorced. But he continues to find reasons to leave. As long as there is no worry or conflict in our family, he is fine. But the moment we have to deal with a problem, especially addiction with my oldest son, he threatens to leave again. I am standing strong for his salvation and our marriage but if his salvation is the only thing that comes out of this, I will consider this stand a success. I love him and I want him saved for my children’s sake and for him to know the God that I know. One thing I have realized is that it’s not always about us. God may have you in your spouse’s life for many more reasons than just marriage restoration. I am standing for God’s will.”  (Louisiana) (posted 1/23/2017)
“I just want to thank the Lord for restoring my marriage again. I was divorced for a few years and we got married again last month. I just want to encourage every stander out there, keep on fighting for your marriage through prayer and God will restore it in His timing. Thank You Jesus.”  (South Africa) (posted 1/23/2017)
“PTL! My suddenly just happened. I was standing for my prodigal husband for a couple of months until Christmas day when he broke his promise to take our children and me out as a family but then spent it with the OW. I lost hope, seeing my children’s hearts broken. I gave up standing and seeing no sign of chances of restoration, I decided to let go, move on with my children. But God had other plans. It was at my lowest point God stepped in to save me. (2 Corinthians 13:9). He contacted me and told me he wanted to come back home; how sorry he was and how he still loved us. PTL! I thought I was dreaming and yesterday he came home and spent the night with us. I know this is a big step forward for my marriage and though he’s not completely back, I trust he will keep his word this time and come back very soon in God’s timing. (Jeremiah 29:11).”  (Papua New Guinea) (posted 1/23/2017)
“Praise the Lord! My wife and I were going through a very tough time and things got very messy. She left home and wanted a divorce as soon as possible. I felt lost, like my situation had no solution. But then I remembered the Lord, and for several months I prayed, fasted, and devoted my time to the Lord for guidance and the restoration of our marriage. I held on to the hand of the Lord. And His timing was perfect and unexpected. Do not have fear; fear is having faith in the wrong thing. Trust God, believe that you will be okay. Don’t try to fix anything, leave it all to God. I am now back together with my wife and everything feels right and different this time. And even though the Lord is still working on us and helping us forgive each other, we have never felt closer. Believe in what you cannot see, the Lord is always with you.”  (Indiana) (posted 1/23/2017)
“My husband returned Christmas Eve and I am late giving my testimony because I just wasn’t convinced he would stay. We also brought in the New Year together along with my son. My husband is still unforgiving towards me because I made mistakes in the past, but I am learning and praying daily to ‘zip my lips!’ I know things will continue to get better. Also, he came to church Sunday! This is such a huge blessing because he stopped going to church earlier and I have been praying without ceasing for his return home and recommitment to Christ. Praises to the Most High! God told me not to give up because I would miss a miracle and reassured His Word with Isaiah 55:11. I am so grateful and didn’t even realize that this Word would result in wonderful changes in me also.”  (Louisiana) (posted 1/23/2017)
“I want to thank the Lord for He is good. My husband and I are restored and this time for good. God is building our foundation on the Solid Rock of Jesus. I am so thankful. God is changing both of us and performing miracles. Please listen to the Lord. I was ready to completely give up just a few short months ago because I just couldn’t take being alone after so many years, but the Holy Spirit counseled my heart and gave me the strength to keep going on faith. I am in awe and so many things that I thought would be roadblocks, God turned around. The Lord does have a plan. Don’t give up. With God all thing are possible. I pray for you all, keep fighting the good fight.”  (Maryland) (posted 1/23/2017)
“PTL! My suddenly has finally come! From the moment I found out my prodigal had an OW, the Lord spoke to me and I knew this would be a spiritual battle. I prayed and I believed and I kept my faith. Numerous times I wanted to give up but God had other plans. He was working all the time; everyone and everything told me that my marriage was not over. Even having gotten the OW pregnant, divorce papers on the table and being told that love never existed and that our marriage was dead. I still knew in my heart that my stand was working. I’m here now writing this after my husband has come home. We now talk nonstop about our future together. Prayer truly changes things. Don’t give up standers. It’s all worth it. I now have a restored marriage with my husband and a powerful battle plan to keep the enemy at bay. Plus, a wonderful relationship with our Lord and Savior. Matthew 19:6.”  (Florida) (posted 1/16/2017)
Luke 1:47-49 (AMPC) – ‘And my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, For He has looked upon the low station and humiliation of His handmaiden. For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed and declare me happy and to be envied! For He Who is almighty has done great things for me and holy is His name.’ I submit this testimony in awe at what the Lord has done in my life and in my marriage. The Lord God is my everything and He has shown just how mighty He is. Nothing is impossible with God. My husband came home for the festive season and I pressed hard into God and trusted Him. The holidays have been nothing short of God’s glory. A few months ago, my husband had written me off. Now we sit planning the future of our family together. All glory to the Almighty God, He is faithful. Press into God standers and do not be doubting Thomas’s. Trust God to hear and answer all our prayers the way He sees best. He is a faithful.”  (Swaziland) (posted 1/16/2017)
“Praise God! My prodigal husband has returned! Standers, do not give up! Do not grow weary! God is working on your behalf in ways unseen. Give yourself and your mountain completely to God. He wants to use this difficult season in your life to draw you closer; to refine you. Allow Him to work on you so that you are prepared to receive the blessing of a healed and restored marriage. Delve into His Word. Rely on it. Pray without ceasing!! My husband told me he was in love with the OW and filed for divorce. The devil had a stronghold on him. I prayed for God to place a hedge of thorns around him and to break all soul ties with the OW. And because God says we are one flesh and not two, and because my prodigal was deceived by the devil and unable and unwilling to pray for reconciliation, I prayed for him! On OUR behalf as ONE! Now he is home. God is mighty and powerful and He wants to fulfill His promises about marriage. Do not give up! He is faithful!”  (Texas) (posted 1/16/2017)
“Thankful to God for the beginning of the restoration of my marriage. I left my husband a couple months ago, because I overheard an inappropriate conversation he was having with another woman. It hurt me to my soul as we were just starting over after a separation. This has been a weakness we have been dealing with for years and I had reached my limit. No, God did not tell me to leave, but I was too broken to stay. Soon after I filed for divorce but the Lord stopped it. I was mad but glad at the same time as it was then I started standing again for my marriage. My prodigal is has not yet moved in full time but we are not arguing anymore as I have zipped my lips and let God do the talking. We have recently been talking about working together and he spends some nights with us which gives us a chance to bond. I use that time to pray over him. This is huge because we both said we were done. But GOD!”  (Georgia) (posted 1/16/2017)
“It has been several years since my prodigal returned. During this time, I’ve learned just how much our Lord was working on the other side of the mountain while he was in the far land. My prayers were answered so many times but, at the time, I didn’t know. He is such a faithful God! It has been a wonderful journey with both of us learning along the way. At times, it’s been painful and I’ve had to remember to ‘zip the lips.’ Another thing I’ve learned is ‘Don’t say, pray’ I know we still have a journey ahead but I want to thank RMM for all the love and support they give me and all the other standers. It has been amazing the number of times I prayed, while my prodigal was away, and our Lord answered. I didn’t know what was happening on the other side of the mountain, but My Lord did and was at work. Don’t give up, but know He is faithful and He doesn’t give up.”  (England) (posted 1/9/2017)
“Thank You, Jesus. I have been separated and then divorced for a few years. I did see improvements in my husband along the way, but he would always leave again to his new residency in another state. This Christmas we had a miracle every day of the week. He reconnected with family, he stepped into church, he took me places, hugged me, kissed me, slept in our home and finally started to cry and said he knows God is telling him to come home. He sat me down and told me that he cannot get over how strong and loving I have been. He is astonished about what the Lord can do. This is huge because when he left me, he also walked away from his connection to God. I am so happy he is connecting with the Lord and he made me feel beautiful and respected again. He opened up about many things and is not as happy as he sometimes seemed. A shift has taken place and my pain has been released. I feel peace, joy, and gratitude. The rosary was powerful in my stand.”  (Ohio) (posted 1/9/2017)
“It happened! My marriage was restored. After some time of separation and divorce, the Father SUDDENLY and SWIFTLY moved in a way only He could. He opened eyes. He changed hearts. He healed. Standers, love can be defined in many ways but as a Christian, love begins and ends with obedience. Do not give up on your spouse. Do not give in to anger, bitterness or resentment. Hold fast to the Lord Jesus Christ. Believe and trust that HE WILL DO what only He can. We are called to love unconditionally despite what is done in return. Jesus has never, nor will He ever, abandon His bride (the church). Despite our running, our refusal to listen, our pride and sin…He constantly pursues us and calls us to Himself. We are instructed to do the same with our spouses. God has purposed these circumstances and situations in our lives and in the end, He will be glorified. Stay strong, obedient, and willing to do whatever He asks.”  (Tennessee) (posted 1/9/2017)
“I have to say that this year was hard but my husband is home, PTL. There is still distance between us, but he is home and engaged. I have not done well at journaling but I am sure that last night was an answered prayer as we laid in bed and I read scriptures to him. Again this morning, devotionals telling me to not be anxious, the Lord guides our paths. I wanted to let you know of God’s glory for none of this is my doing other than to trust in God. The Lord moved my husband, other people and me, to bring my husband home. I did not beat my husband over the head with a Bible either. I have let him come to me with questions and only answer what is asked. Someone needs to hear this today. You have to be still, pray, fast, tithe and petition. This is up to God, not us. Let Him fight. This is bigger than all of us and only He is strong enough.”  (Virginia) (posted 1/9/2017)
“Glory to God. He suddenly restored my marriage after several years of standing. It’s like a Christmas surprise. The road was rough and full of consistent rejection, lack of support and multiple affairs plus a child, but the Lord kept me. There is nothing our God cannot do and all His ways are strange but wonderful. Our very young son went missing at a picnic. My husband responded quickly. Thankfully, we found our son and God used this as a stepping stone for my husband to return home. After a few weeks, he asked if we could try dating and see if we can reconcile but in less than a week he went with me to see the pastor and recommitted his life to Christ. He called first thing the next day and came home with all his things. I encourage you standers, our God is faithful. My case was so, so hopeless that some people still do not believe it.”  (Uganda) (posted 1/3/2017)
“I was separated for many months, and I used to read the praise report testimonies on here and think, if my husband ever comes home, I will gladly encourage others as well with mine. My husband moved to another state, moved in with a woman, changed his phone number, and used to call me once a week blocking his number. I started a prayer team, and we prayed every night on the phone for all our husbands. I would also post my prayer request on this site. I remember feeling so alone, sad, depressed, and just did not feel like myself because my other half was missing. After many months, I found out where he was living which was three hours away. I reasoned I would be like Hosea and go retrieve my Gomer. We met at a restaurant; he was shocked that I found him and drove in to bring him home. But he looked at me and said, ‘Okay I am coming home.’ It was so supernatural. I never imagined he would actually do it. But God had other plans. God does answer prayers. Persevere, prayer works!”  (Louisiana) (posted 1/3/2017)
“I praise the Lord my husband came home! An early Christmas present and its only through the Lord Jesus Christ that we are together. Please standers, do not give up. When I would get into despair the Lord would speak to me through social media of all things and pick me back up. I would read the testimonies on this website for encouragement. The Lord is so awesome. His love endures forever. I stuck to Philippians 4:6-7 to tell myself to wait for the Lord. Living in awe.”  (Tennessee) (posted 1/3/2017)
“Last year my husband was living with the OW and even took her to his work Christmas Party. He was utterly blinded by the enemy. I spent Christmas alone with our infant son, in another country, trying to avoid needing to explain my husband’s noticeable absence while visiting family and friends. Our marriage looked hopeless. BUT GOD. As I type I am sitting next to the newest addition to our family, who is three weeks old, while our other child sleeps in the next room, and their dad is out working in the garage. After several false starts home, God brought him to us, as He’d promised, in the year of Jubilee. While we have a long way to go and a lot of demons and generational snares to battle, we are one. Thank you Charlyne for reminding us that husbands can also be prodigals in their own homes. My husband is still fleeing God in many ways, but his heart has been softened tremendously. I know the Lord has a mighty plan for his life, for OUR life. Praise Him!”  (France) (posted 12/27/2016)
“Our God is powerful. Please do not give up before He has the chance to restore your marriage. I thought my situation was hopeless like many standers. I prayed, I fasted, I believed. I am typing this while sitting next to my separated spouse. She has agreed to work on our marriage. Her rings are back on her finger. To God goes all of the glory. Keep standing, please keep fighting. The enemy will attempt to defeat you and remove your motivation, but ignore it. God is amazing, I wasn’t sure I would be able to post a testimony like ones I have read, but here I am.”  (North Carolina) (posted 12/27/2016)
