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.

“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)
“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 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)
“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)
“Praise God. After several years of separation and divorce, my husband and I were remarried this summer! It all happened very suddenly and our friends and family were shocked, but all I could say was, ‘God answers prayer.’ I’m so grateful for all the encouragement from RMM that kept me fighting for my marriage all these years through impossible circumstances. I know that this is just the beginning and my prayers won’t stop, but I’m so thankful for everything. God truly changed my husband’s heart of stone into one of flesh and He can do the same for you!”  (Canada) (posted 9/20/2016)
“My miracle is beginning. God touched my wife’s heart in HIS perfect timing and she is willing to seek God’s will for our marriage. PTL. HE alone deserves the glory! I believe God crushed me with this trial to purify my walk with Him and show me the man He desires me to be. I know my sanctification is dependent on Christ. I know that I have relational skills to relearn and I expect Satan will continue to try to harm us. But God is mighty and I will trust the Lord with the final outcome. I am praying for ALL standers and prodigals. Be strong, your spouse is worth it.”  (Arizona) (posted 9/12/2016)
“My suddenly finally happened! Six weeks ago my husband showed up with his bags and never left. I give only God the praise and glory for the reconciliation of my marriage. It appeared certain that my marriage would end in divorce, but God! Standers, I encourage you to trust God. The battle is not yours. It belongs to God. He will fight for you. Get out of the way and let God be God. If He joined you and your spouse together, trust that He will reconcile your marriage and send your prodigal home. Don’t give up on your spouse or your marriage. The only victory the devil will have is the victory you give him. During your tough times pray for strength and let the Word of God be your solid foundation.”  (Georgia) (posted 9/12/2016)
“Glory and praise to you Lord! It has been a few years since my husband came home. Our marriage is so much better. We pray together and attend weekly Bible study at our church. We are truly best friends to each other. Please never stop praying for your spouse. I almost did and I would have lost out on so much. Thank you Charlyne and RMM for guiding me along the way!”  (Florida) (posted 9/12/2016)
“Trust and respect had been lost in our marriage. But our Lord is a God who heals. I was feeling very depressed but God touched my heart. I decided to set aside my pride and come back to our family home, which both my husband and I abandoned after our marriage fell apart, and wait for my husband. For a while he would visit, stay for a night, then for a few days each week until he stayed for good. For several years now he has been staying with me and just recently started talking about our future together. There are still many areas in our marriage that need healing but indeed, when you let go and let God do the work, you will be surprised with miracles. Standers, don’t despair. God is always at work. Marriage restoration, which I thought was impossible several years ago, is now happening in my life. Let us continue praying for each other. Never ever lose hope.”  (Philippines) (posted 9/12/2016)
“I don’t think I could ever put into words just how great God is nor what all He has done in these past couple of weeks, but my husband went from absolutely nothing to making the big and hard steps to come back home! God kept telling me to hold on, look and be amazed at what He was going to do and boy has this been a life changing week. My husband told me that his plans were to block my number and never see me again after our house sold but God spoke to him as we were signing the papers and the rest is history. God shows up at the perfect time and makes one see just what all the prayers, faith, fasting and suffering leads to. Thank You Father for Your unfailing love and faithfulness! Standers, please don’t give up. My situation was lifeless and it was changed in an instant. Hosea 6:1-3.”  (Kentucky) (posted 9/12/2016)
“Genesis 2:24 The Lord is faithful and so very able and God does restore marriages! It has been a few solid months now since my husband has returned home and stayed home, after many false starts. The journey of marriage and family restoration is not an easy one, but certainly well worth it. God has used the brokenness of our marriage, our family and my own brokenness to show me just how whole and powerful He is, and how He is the only One who can make us whole again in a world filled with temptations and shortfalls that are bound to break us down. Praise God! He restored my marriage, He restored my respect for my husband, He restored the order of responsibility within our home and He restored the fear of God in both myself and my husband! Standers, RMM has helped me understand that God wants a deep relationship with us! God brought you to this site for a reason! Trust Him 100%, God is love which never fails.”  (South Africa) (posted 9/5/2016)
“I decided to audition for a play at church. I received a part. Opening night, my two youngest children attended the play. I was hurt my prodigal did not attend. That night, I asked him why he didn’t attend the play. He said he didn’t want to step foot into that church again. Four days later, he surprised me saying he would attend the show that night since it was the finale. The devil tried to step in because my husband arrived late to the play. Glory be to God though. So many people came to watch the finale that we had to do two shows that night. My husband missed the first show but was able to catch the second show and watch me perform. He said I did an excellent job, played my part well, and that I was very believable in my role! This was all God!”  (New Jersey) (posted 9/5/2016)
“PTL, my husband came home after several years. Even though he is home, our marriage restoration still has a long way to go. He has chosen to live in our game room over the garage instead of sharing the house with me. I know that God is still working on him and my prayers are needed now more than ever. He still claims that he doesn’t need God or anybody else in his life. I continue to pray that God touches his life and I know that God will be faithful and restore our marriage even better than it was before with God as the center. Keep standing and praying, God does move mountains and work miracles.”  (California) (posted 9/5/2016)
“My beloved has come home to my heart. He is not home physically yet but he has given our marriage another chance. God is so good to His promises. I’ve learned so much through God and His Word. He has molded me and changed me to be the godly wife I was called to be. I will not lose sight of the Lord’s face and His grace He has bestowed upon me. I’m still praying for my husband to lay all his burdens at the cross, BUT GOD. My season was short even though it felt like a lifetime. I continue to pray for all the standers. God will never fail you, just wait patiently. Exodus 14:14 – My Lord will fight for you, you need only to be still. Love you all and never, never give up.”  (North Carolina) (posted 9/5/2016)
“Glory to God. I’ve been standing for quite some time and it has been a long hard road. God hears! Three days ago my husband said he would never return to our church and, PTL, he went with me on Sunday. I know this is the beginning of God restoring and healing our marriage. Standers, please do not give up.”  (Georgia) (posted 9/5/2016)
“I just want to tell my fellow standers, please keep standing. Don’t give up. I know things are hard and you feel like there is no point in all this, but there is. There really is. God brought my husband back last year. I wish I could tell you it’s been easy, but I would be lying. Sometimes I asked myself if this is what I really wanted. The devil is a liar! Of course this is what I wanted! Its what God wanted as well! God is restoring my marriage one day at a time. There are times when I mess up and say things out of anger and pain. But God always convicts me and I ask for forgiveness. I do notice plenty of changes though. We forgive each other more quickly, we communicate a lot better than we used to and there is more understanding between us. God is doing a great work and He deserves all the glory and praise for it. Please, keep standing and praying. God loves you and your spouse and He WILL deliver! Your prodigal WILL come home! Just make sure you’re ready!”  (Georgia) (posted 9/5/2016)
“God is truly a restorer. After a long separation and filing divorce papers, God has miraculously restored my marriage and is restoring every area. After a phone call out of the blue, my husband returned home. He became quite sick while in his wilderness. When he returned home, he was taking chemo. A month after returning, he was declared healed and whole by his doctor. We renewed our vows shortly after, found a church we both loved and started serving very soon afterwards. My one consistent prayer was for him to return home on fire for God. I am seeing that come to pass. We recently moved into a brand new construction home (we lost our last one in the separation), and he’s been blessed with a full time job that he loves. I have seen God do a work that I never could with my nagging and manipulation. Let God have control, seek His face wholeheartedly and don’t give up. God can do anything, but fail.”  (Virginia) (posted 9/5/2016)
“This past Sunday our Pastor had an altar call for anyone needing a miracle in their life. I went up for prayer for the restoration of our marriage and the individual who prayed over me declared the exact same verse (Isaiah 58:12) that I have been standing on as an answer to restoration and the call that has been placed on my marriage once the Lord restores us back together! And to top it off, my sweetheart did not go up for prayer, but the Lord sent someone else we didn’t know to travel straight to his seat to ask if he could pray for him! When I came back after they had finished praying my husband said, ‘Well I guess the Lord got me anyway!’ That’s right standers, the Lord has our prodigals held tight in His loving hands far more than we could ever know! We can trust Him with our hearts as well as theirs, and we can surely trust Him with the promise of restoration because it’s what our faithful Father’s heart is set on!”  (Florida) (posted 9/5/2016)
“I never cease to be amazed at God’s faithfulness. After many months, our Lord has redeemed my family and my husband and I are back together. I realize now why God did not heal us immediately when I decided I wanted Him to. You see, I was the one who gave up. I did not stand for my marriage. I quit and walked away because I believed the devil’s lie that I deserved better. When God changed my heart, my husband was still hurt, angry, and was involved with the OW. God has taught me in my stand that it is HIS job to change my spouse, not mine. My job is to let Him change me. Thank You Jesus, for loving us, forgiving us, and bringing us back to You and each other!”  (Mississippi) (posted 9/5/2016)
“My husband is ‘coming home.’ We are scared of the unknown, but after being unable to get divorced and unable to move on in other relationships, we both know it is because God does not want that for us. We are going to give it our all. Our children do not know yet, but I cannot wait to see their faces when it happens. I’m praising God and I will continue to do so. He’s going to be number one in our marriage from here on out. My husband hasn’t been to church with me in a very long time. He’s probably going with us tomorrow. Glory be to God.”  (Texas) (posted 9/5/2016)
“My husband and I divorced some months ago after my anger and fear and his emotional affairs became too much for me. I spent months in anger, hurting him and pushing him away. Later, God convicted me and I repented to Him and to my husband. He did not want anything to do with me at first and was with another woman. I told him that I would wait for him forever, love him no matter what and pray until he’s back. God repeatedly brought me to Mark 11:22-25. Last week my husband told me that he has left the other woman and that he wants to rebuild with me and our daughter. But God! He wants to go slow and is not a Christian, but God has moved mountains and given me a prophecy, he will be saved. When all the world and other Christians tell you to give up, listen to God. He knows the future, He has a plan, He is not a God of false hope!”  (Idaho) (posted 8/29/2016)
“Praise God! After few weeks of separation my husband came back home it happened suddenly. There were difficult days but God was there all the way. He is in control of our lives. Praise the Lord.”  (Indiana) (posted 8/29/2016)
“RMM has been the catalyst for hope (along with God) during a difficult time of separation with my husband. Just when I needed God most He sent RMM and a Facebook angel who prayed daily with me and for me. God showed me I had forsaken my first love (Him) so I praise God for allowing the separation which in turn allowed me more precious time with my Savior Jesus Christ and building our relationship. My hubby is back home, glory to God, and I see changes in him because first God had to change me! But my fasting, praying and praising God doesn’t stop now that he’s home. The enemy is busy. So I’ll continue to pray, praise and fast for not just my marriage but other standers too. Don’t lose hope. God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we can ask or think!”  (Arizona) (posted 8/29/2016)

“I stood by my husband for many years. He has been home, saved and drug free for over a year now. We worked a retreat at our church recently and afterwards he told me, ‘I don’t think I ever thanked you for standing by me when I was in the far country. I am sorry for everything I put you through.’ Praise the Lord for saving my husband and redeeming our marriage. It was worth every tear and pain for where we both are now in our walk with the Lord.”  (Louisiana) (posted 8/22/2016)
“My suddenly finally happened! My wonderful husband decided that he wanted to call off the divorce and move back in with myself and our twin babies. Words cannot describe how thankful I am for the mighty works of our Heavenly Father and this ministry. When the separation first happened, my heart was broken. I had no choice but to turn to Jesus and surrender my heart. Praise God that He is near to the brokenhearted and crushed in spirit. I would read the testimonies, waiting expectantly for my suddenly. Today my husband called and asked for forgiveness. He shared how much he loved his family and wanted nothing more than to resume his place as husband and father. He moved out-of-state and said that he is on his way home. God is so good! To all standers out there, keep your faith and hold onto the promises that our Father gives us. Know that he is battling for us and that the battle isn’t ours, but the victory is! And remember God’s Word never fails. Amen!”  (Washington) (posted 8/22/2016)
“Praise the good Lord! My husband is back home after being in the far country for some time. He told my family he was happy being separated and didn’t know why he got married. It hurt so bad, but I held on to God’s Word, His strength and RMM. Many days I wanted to give up but then I would read RRM emails and it would encourage me. My husband is not fully submitted to God but RMM has taught me how to handle that situation. I will continue to pray the Word of the Lord and stand for my husband, marriage and children. We have to just be still, wait on Him and obey what He tells us to do and God will do the rest. Don’t give up!”  (Texas) (posted 8/22/2016)
“It is a miracle that I am able to submit a testimony. I have fallen asleep for many years listening to Charlyne’s encouraging words on her podcasts. That encouragement gave me the strength to put one foot in front of the other every day and trust in our Lord. My beloved husband is home. We are taking baby steps together. God is good. Trust, faith and patience to all standers.”  (Pennsylvania) (posted 8/22/2016)
“To God be the glory! My husband is home after two false starts. Through many tears, prayers, fasting, worship and praising God, He answered my prayers and brought my husband home. Many times I wanted to give up, but God wouldn’t let me. I just kept hanging on. And praise the Lord, He is so good! Never, ever give up. No matter what!” (Kentucky) (posted 8/22/2016)
“Praise God. I found RMM a day before my birthday. I decided to fast for my husband and marriage on my birthday, and became a stander for marriages. A week later my husband returned home – suddenly. We are taking one day at a time. When challenged, I remind myself of God’s faithfulness, and that God has brought Him home and He will receive Christ. And that God will continue to do a work in us for His glory. Still standing.”  (South Carolina) (posted 8/22/2016)
“Praise the Lord! My wife explained to me that we needed to separate and that she did not love me anymore. I had not been following Christ for a number of years and was at a point that I questioned His existence. A week later God changed my life. A complete 180 degree turn. I recommitted my life to Christ, and began to stand for my marriage. My wife repeatedly told me there was no chance of getting back together. She began to go out weekends and would return late. I confronted her about the OM. God gave me the strength, patience and forgiveness. For His glory! I prayed a Hedge of Thorns around my wife and was filled with the Holy Spirit. At that point I knew without any doubt that God is real and with me during my stand. There were times when I felt like giving up. I would pray and He took those urges from me. My suddenly has come; my wife no longer wants a divorce. She wants to return to a life with Christ and wants to begin working on our marriage. Continue to have faith, we serve a Mighty God!”  (Pennsylvania) (posted 8/17/2016)
“God will come through! I prayed, fasted, and studied His Word I didn’t give up. My husband, who said he was never coming back, is coming back home. Nothing is truly impossible with God.”  (Texas) (posted 8/17/2016)
“A few years ago I decided to walk away from my marriage. When I decided to come back to my husband it was too late. He didn’t want anything to do with me. I remember his words like it was yesterday, ‘Not even Jesus can fix this marriage.’ Many months of no communication. I continued to go through my ups and downs, but remained faithful in my walk with the Lord and continued to pray for my marriage. I had my breakthrough this week! We attend the same church (when I am in town visiting) and there was an altar call. As I watched him walk towards the front of the church, I never expected for him to turn around and point me out of the crowd. He asked me to come up with him and the entire church was praising and rejoicing because they knew we were separated and this was the sign we all were waiting for, the sign of restoration. I know we have a long road ahead of us, but God will do it. I thanked Him in advance through it all and He answered my prayers.”  (Florida) (posted 8/17/2016)
“PTL! My husband is finally home! He has been in the far country for several years and we have been separated for some time. He suddenly came home this week. It was totally unexpected. He was supposed to be stopping by, but when he showed up he came with all of his things. He said he didn’t even know he was coming, but He heard the voice of God saying go home and when he started putting something in his truck he just kept on until all of his things were in there! He has totally broken it off with the OW and wants God to guide his steps! Standers, be strong and keep praying!! God does answer prayers and is working even if you don’t see it! God kept giving me Isaiah 43:18-19 and it has happened! I know that God is in control and that we are both depending on God to guide us.”  (Mississippi) (posted 8/17/2016)
“Praise God. After many years of separation, my husband came home! It happened suddenly at Christmas. What a wonderful gift to celebrate Christ’s birth. The first few months were hard for me. The devil kept reminding that there had been another woman in my husband’s life. But God gave me Isaiah 41:10. He filled my heart with a peace even greater than I had throughout my stand. Now several months later, my husband and I are planning a vacation to celebrate our restoration.”  (New Jersey) (posted 8/17/2016)
“One year ago today my husband and I had a family portrait done with our nine-month-old baby. We had been separated for several months and another woman was involved. Fasting, praying scripture, kneeling with our son in our prayer closet, and begging for my spouse’s salvation, I clung harder to my Jesus than ever. The verse Jeremiah 33:3 was the scariest verse for me to pray, because yes, my ‘God told me things I did not know,’ but sometimes the things revealed to me hurt. When we left from the picture taking one year ago, my husband kissed us, and drove away. Before I drove away from that spot my lawyer contacted me that my husband filed for divorce two hours before. Oh my heart. How, why … we just had a family picture made. Only the peace from my Jesus got me through the next months and when there was no possible way to fix it, He did. I woke this morning with my husband home and our child happy. There’s a picture to remind me of this year’s struggles and a God who says He’s got this. Habakkuk 1:5.”  (Alabama) (posted 8/17/2016)
“My husband and I have been estranged for several years. He cut off all communication with me and our children, despite my many attempts to reach out. I was at a point of giving up hope – but still could not let go because of my faith. God led me to RMM to encourage me, especially on days when I just couldn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. Tonight, my suddenly came. Out of nowhere, he called me. He said he’d been reading his Bible, praying and wants us to give our marriage another chance. I used to read testimonies and wonder when I would get to write mine, and now the day has come. Be encouraged, God does make all things beautiful in His time. Don’t give up on your stand, no matter how hard it is, because God is still in the business of performing miracles. I know we still have a road ahead, but I thank God for the first step. He who began a good work will be faithful to complete it. Alleluia!”  (Georgia) (posted 8/8/2016)
“My suddenly happened! My husband left after a fight suddenly. A short while later he was expecting a child with the OW. I thought I had never seen darker days in my life as I can’t have children. I remember thinking, ‘Satan, this isn’t going to work!’ I clung to the Lord, fasted, journaled, listened to RMM, prayed with FAITH, prayed scriptures with my spouse’s name in them and believed God could do the impossible. After months of silence, my husband reached out and said he missed me terribly! He apologized deeply and sincerely. He made amends with me and is pursuing me. I was able to immediately forgive. The child was lost quickly to a miscarriage and the OW is completely out of the picture. God is healing us from the bottom. Please continue to pray as we are not moved in yet but we are finding a new place. I had to submit this testimony because I couldn’t wait another day. It is a true miracle of God! He promised me He would restore our marriage and He does not go back on His promise!”  (Ohio) (posted 8/8/2016)
“Praise the Lord! My suddenly has come! Today is our 10th wedding anniversary and he is moving home. We have a long road to full healing, but God! He has been speaking to me in verses and in prayer and as I was praying last week he spoke to me, ‘It is finished’” I just want to thank this ministry for your teachings and all of your work. I have found comfort and a closeness to God through your ministry that I never thought possible. He has truly blessed you and your work. When all hope is lost standers, look to the Lord. He will fulfill His promises and work everything for our good. I just can’t praise the Lord enough. Be still and wait patiently before the Lord and He will move mountains! Psalm 37:7 was a great source of comfort during this trial.”  (Ohio) (posted 8/8/2016)
“After some time separated, my husband came back a few months ago. He came back, but not surrendered to the Lord. I assumed when he came back we would rebuild our marriage but unfortunately it has not gone that way. I don’t snoop or worry anymore, thanks to Charlyne, but on our actual anniversary last week God revealed he was being unfaithful again. He then told me he had ‘tried’ but he wasn’t in love with me and didn’t think marriage suited him so he is done. I am heartbroken. However, he did say we should continue living together. For a moment I wanted to pack my stuff and go, but the Lord led me to Jeremiah 42:10 telling me to stay put and He will build me up and not tear me down. He will plant me and not uproot me. What a promise! So now I’m praising God that my spouse doesn’t want to leave or want me to. His words may cause some grief but I know the Holy Spirit is moving! Pray with me guys, I know his release from the enemy is so very soon!” (Georgia) (posted 8/8/2016)
“My suddenly has finally arrived, after being separated from my husband for several years. After work yesterday my husband called me to come over. He asked me to walk over to an apartment, where I thought I was meeting a friend of his. When we got there, he opened the door to a newly remodeled apartment and said, ‘Welcome home.’ I stood there confused and he said again, ‘Our apartment. Me, you, and the kids’. I immediately started crying because I knew then God had answered my prayers of many days that I thought may never come. We are so blessed. We put our rings back on and told the kids. They are so excited. Thank you Rejoice Marriage Ministries for believing with me, that God does heal hurting marriages. Never give up on your spouse. In God’s timing, He will restore.”  (Alabama) (posted 8/3/2016)
“I feel compelled today to praise the Lord for all His mighty works in my life. He has brought my husband home. He gave me signs to keep me strong. He leads me to people who would help me stand and has brought me people to help stand as well. My husband is home. He is helping and back in the marital bed and house. He is still arm’s length but he was a cosmos away before. Praise the Lord for our financial trials. Praise the Lord for our comingling of business and family. Praise the Lord for my friends and a new job at the nicest office to date. Praise the Lord for all the small miracles that lead to the biggest miracle of all – my remarriage to my husband in the coming year. I claim it in Jesus’ Name. PTL.”  (Virginia) (posted 8/3/2016)
“Some time ago the love of my life became distant and we ultimately separated. I prayed and asked God to help us avoid a divorce but my husband had zero interest in reconciling. I then began my stand for my marriage and prayed constantly for the Lord to soften my husband’s heart. The divorce hearing came and we officially divorced. I was crushed but maintained my stand. We stayed in contact over text after the divorce and then something beautiful started to happen. Our conversations became pleasant and we began spending time together. Within a few weeks after our divorce, I started to see God’s hand working on my marriage. It has now been several months since my husband and I are officially dating and back together again. We are rebuilding what the enemy tried to tear down and I believe we will marry again in the future. Praise God!”  (Florida) (posted 8/3/2016)
“My husband and I were not communicating at all and arguing every time we spoke to each other. The Lord is transforming us and we have not argued since our divorce. My husband is now going to the church where we were married. My Lord is restoring our marriage in His timing. Praise the Lord!”  (California) (posted 8/3/2016)
“I began to stand for my daughter some time ago after she left due to rebellion. After trying hard to hold on to her, I felt the Lord pry my hands apart from her as He gave me a peace that surpasses all understanding. I let her go. The prodigal son came to my mind at that moment and I knew it was the Lord speaking to me. He was going to take care of her and bring her back with a softened heart. After some time of fasting and much prayer, my daughter came home on the 4th of July. A few days before I would have had no idea this was going to happen as she called me to say I love you, but that she had no interest in coming home. We had already had a 4th of July party planned with some family. I had no idea I’d be celebrating her homecoming as well. Isn’t He great? I felt as though the fireworks were a celebration of this beautiful ‘suddenly.’ Standers, keep praying and know that God will work everything out in His perfect timing. Give it all to Him and be still.”  (Florida) (posted 8/3/2016)
“My suddenly happened after several years of separation from my beloved spouse. I often cried out to God, asking Him if standing is what He wanted me to do and every time He responded with a resounding ‘Yes.’ Through my stand, I gained a closeness to God that I never dreamed was possible. He truly is my very best friend. He was my spouse for a season and never once left my side. He always listened, always guided, and always provided. God is good!”  (Florida) (posted 8/3/2016)
“My husband told me last year that he didn’t want anything to do with me. Yesterday I was prompted in my spirit to call him. He was very excited and told me he was coming the very same afternoon. He came in the evening with an apology and asked me to forgive him and forget about everything that happened between us. He told me he regretted everything he did to me. He even apologized to our two-year-old daughter for not being there for her. He promised to move in with us next month. This God that we serve is awesome. I can’t believe that I’m writing a testimony today as I have been reading other believers’ testimonies. Your turn is coming. Hold on to God, He is faithful when you wait faithfully upon Him.”  (South Africa) (posted 8/3/2016)
“Honor and glory to my Heavenly Father! My suddenly came. I prayed, fasted, and tithed putting it ALL in God’s hands and two days before my final divorce court my husband called in tears. He left the OW and wanted to rebuild the relationship with his kids; never said anything about me. I knew this was it though. The next day we spent the day talking about reconciling and yesterday we went to court to dismiss the divorce! PTL! He said he lusted over the OW but never truly loved her and he was miserable. He’s home but wants to be friends and go from there. I know my Lord will restore what the enemy intended to destroy! The real battle starts now for the OW does not want to leave him alone but God! I will trust that my God will take care of it all in Jesus’ name. Don’t give up standers. I never thought my day would come and here I am rejoicing. My husband is home. Pray, pray, pray! Have faith, God will deliver if you believe. 2 Corinthians 2:7-8.”  (California) (posted 7/26/2016)
“PTL, my suddenly just happened last weekend. My husband called me late one night and told me he and the OW had gotten into an accident while arguing and fighting in the car. He then explained he didn’t want to be with her anymore. He is still in another state right now because of his job but it will be ending soon and he’ll be back home. This is the same man who told me to move on and stop praying because we would never be together and that he didn’t love me anymore. ‘But God’ had a different plan. Now we talk, text, and Facetime every day. I am so grateful to my Father in Heaven for restoring my marriage and saving my family. I know we still have a long way to go but I praise God because He will go before us through it all. I just want to encourage all the standers to keep standing. God is always on time.”  (Florida) (posted 7/26/2016)
