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 suddenly happened about a month ago. After many false starts, I was scared, but God has shown me this time is different…. because I am different. Every day I’m in awe of the Lord’s power and how much my husband is growing. He has not returned to church yet but his devotion to saving our marriage and to me is amazing. Yesterday he came over out of nowhere, kissed my check and said ‘Thank you for forgiving me again and again. Always giving me another chance. I appreciate you so much. I’m sorry it took me so long to realize what an amazing wife I had.’ I haven’t stopped standing as I know this is a process and there is still a lot of work to do but God is so mighty and in control. Last year we were apart at this time. He hated me. He had multiple OW. He wanted to divorce. And now… BUT GOD. Standers, please don’t give up. Your forgiveness extends love to the unlovable and teaches them how to have hope in themselves. Your prodigal needs your prayers!”  (Georgia) (posted 11/29/2016)
“My husband and daughter returned home last night after a separation of a few months. An alcohol induced explosive fight caused me to tell them to leave. He checked her out of school and moved an hour away. I had a decision to make immediately after they left. Who was the person I was going to be? The prideful independent woman of my past or the reverent wife I was called to be in scripture? I chose the latter and I prayed our way to restoration. Praise God on high! I didn’t make a move without God’s consent. I no longer drink, I have lost 20 lbs, all by prayer and standing on scripture 2 Timothy 1:7. There are many others but at its core the Holy Spirit gives us everything we need. My life has been restructured to put God first, my husband second and the kids third. I’m more focused on others and I have had more joy during this sorrowful journey than I have ever had ‘happy’ in this life . Amen!”  (Texas) (posted 11/29/2016)
“I have been standing for quite some time. I was worn out and wanted to give up. But then I remembered God never gave up on me. And my marriage vows were spoken to my spouse before God. My husband had turned to other women and drugs; at one point he was even homeless. But God told him to take off his grave clothes and return to Him just as Lazarus did. Praise be to God, my husband and I remarried last Monday night. God not only restored him but also my marriage. Keep standing, God is true to His promises.”  (Arkansas) (posted 11/29/2016)
“I would like to thank everyone for praying for my husband and me. My husband decided to work things out with me. And we are moving forward in our marriage. I am very grateful for God and all that He has done for me and my husband.”  (Georgia) (posted 11/29/2016)
God’s way is perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection. Psalm 18:30 (NLT) I praise the Lord for His faithfulness. When I found out my husband had an affair, I was heartbroken. Initially, I was not sure whether to stay or leave him. I chose to stay and fight for my marriage. I cried out to God for help and God gave me promises in His Word. The affair eventually fizzled out but it left our family broken. The Lord sustained me and the kids through the prayers and support of friends. It was difficult to live with my husband because he was not remorseful. I chose to walk in love while having clear boundaries. I looked at ways I enabled his bad behaviors and made necessary changes. I grew in my relationship with Jesus. Through some humbling experiences, my husband finally came to his senses. Praise Jesus for restoration. My family is growing closer to Jesus and to each other.”  (North Carolina) (posted 11/22/2016)
“PTL, my husband has been home for some time now. We had a false start, and because I was on detective mode it did not work. This time I have learned to control myself, and I don’t spy or snoop anymore. I still get the urge to do it, but I pray and pray. I know the Lord will remove this urge as I deepen my relationship with Him. I know my God is in control. After my husband moved out, the Lord gave me Jeremiah 29:11-13 and I am holding on to that promise with all my strength and my heart.”  (California) (posted 11/22/2016)
“I’m happy to report that my husband has agreed to go to marriage counseling with me. All I can say is ‘Thank You Lord.’ I’m sure there are several standers who get tired and want to give up and throw in the towel. But all I can tell you is ‘Wait on God’ and don’t give up. I’m a living testimony. My husband is a very proud man so for him to agree is nothing but God. I ask that you please continue to pray for me and my marriage.”  (North Carolina) (posted 11/22/2016)
“This morning I ordered prayer books for my prodigal spouse and me (per his request). What a miracle! Even one month ago my spouse wouldn’t have considered this! Glory all to God. He is faithful! My spouse has been home for a little while and although it hasn’t been perfect, I cannot believe the transformation that has happened with our marriage and my spouse. My spouse even gives God all the glory, saying he didn’t try to do anything…that God did it all…he has only obeyed. Standers, I encourage you to push through the pain hurt and confusion. God knows and sees! He makes all things new! He will restore your marriage in His timing.”  (Georgia) (posted 11/22/2016)
“After several long years my husband is home. I never thought I would have my ‘suddenly moment.’ but I did. After him shouting at me to divorce him, within ten minutes he said he wanted to talk. And then he admitted he wanted to come home and be a family again. Now he is home. As with many of you, this has been a traumatic time for me and my daughters. I have heard him tell me he didn’t love me, didn’t miss me, and didn’t see us ever being together again. I clung on while he had an OW and while my friends and work colleagues were questioning my sanity. But I knew that my prayers were in line with God’s will, and that He would answer them at the right time. Without a doubt, it is my God Jehovah who has done this – it would not have been possible without Him. Do not give up hope. 1 John 5:14.”  (United Kingdom) (posted 11/14/2016)
“I am divorced and was told to move on and let go. That this is what God had wanted. But I refused to believe. I was alone, or at least I thought I was. Some friends and family were rooting for restoration while others were not. In the beginning, I was lost. But the Spirit of the Lord was upon me, and He immediately became one with me. He led me and taught me how to fight with the power of prayer. I prayed to the heart of the Lord, and for the heart of the Lord because I knew that my divorce was wrong. He taught me to forgive, and He taught me how to know and trust His Word. Today, the Lord has brought my husband back after being in the wilderness. It is a journey I know He will help us both on. The Lord has restored and is continuing to restore us back to Him and to each other. He heals the hurt. PTL.”  (District of Columbia) (posted 11/14/2016)
“I just wanted to share and encourage someone. Last year at this time my husband had left me and our three children for another woman. He had filed for divorce. Fast forward to this year, same time. We are happier together, the kids are happy, the divorce has been withdrawn and we are working on our marriage. This is the best our marriage has ever been and for once we both have goals and dreams for this marriage (we are in it till death do us part), where previously every fight, argument or discomfort would lead to walking out, living apart, etc. God has been good and I have seen my miracle. We are slightly financially challenged but I know in God’s timing it will be well and He will never leave us. He is waiting to bless us more than we imagined, just like He did for our marriage. Praise be to God! Nothing is impossible with our God.”  (South Africa) (posted 11/9/2016)
“Praise the Lord. I have been standing for many years. My marriage was dead and I wanted to give up even when my husband had children with the OW. But the Lord wouldn’t let me. Please standers, no matter how bad it seems, our Lord has other plans. Don’t give up. I give all praise to God. My husband is back home! We have a long road ahead, but I continue to pray and zip my lips. Thank You Lord. I pray for all standers and pray for marriage restoration around the world.”  (Florida) (posted 11/9/2016)
“I truly thank God for this ministry every day. One of the prayer partners just recently prayed with me on the phone and my suddenly has begun! There is power in agreement. I don’t know why I’m surprised and in awe that my prodigal spouse has left the other woman and is returning. He will be here with the kids and me for the holidays. Not everything is in place perfectly for us to begin moving in together yet. But this is a HUGE step in the right direction. I was prepared to pray for several years or a very long time if that’s what it took. I had no idea it would happen this soon. To God be the glory! There’s still much praying and fasting to do because it’s not over yet, it’s just the beginning. Hold on dear brother or sister in the Lord who is still standing. God is listening and He is near to the brokenhearted. Allow Him to heal your heart and your spouse’s. God is faithful to His Word and He hears you and He will do it. Maybe when you’re least expecting it.”  (California) (posted 11/9/2016)
“PRAISE GOD! My prodigal spouse has been home for a week. He is delivered from almost all addictions and on fire for God. I have been struggling this week and my spouse has been feeding me the Word of God. What a miracle! God is so good. It has been a long hard road and I know it’s not over but I praise God for touching the lost heart of my spouse. I have seen 10+ specific prayers I have prayed over the last six months coming to pass. Standers, continue to pray without ceasing and use the Word of God every day to send Satan down the road and away from your family. Most of all standers, never give up. The Lord is good and He will touch the heart of your spouse in His timing.”  (Georgia) (posted 11/9/2016)
“PTL! I just want to give my God total praise. My suddenly is finally here; prayer truly changes things. When my spouse first left, I was so devastated and I felt hopeless. So many negative thoughts crossed my mind but one day as I laid in bed the Holy Spirit came over me telling me ‘Don’t give up.’ God was speaking to me. I found this website and, being so young, I didn’t know anything about standing. But this website taught me so much! God is so good and faithful. He told me He was going to restore and that is what He is doing. My spouse is now back home with me and our son! PTL! I will always keep praying, not letting the devil even come near us again. Keep standing and praying while God fights to bring your prodigal back home. The enemy is defeated! Claim it, speak it, stand on God’s Word. He is faithful and has already done it for you. I love You Lord and I want to let the whole world know how amazing You are. Thank You Father God in heaven!”  (South Carolina) (posted 11/9/2016)
“My husband has returned home. When there were circumstances that made me feel like giving up, along with my stand, I saw God moving awesome mountains. I watched how He removed the OW. God will preserve us like a family in spite of everything. And today, a year after, we are together, rebuilding our relationship, with plans of building our house, and seeing how my husband’s heart is being softened day by day. I continue praying for his salvation and I trust God will complete His work for us. Each day when it dawns, I look at my husband in my bed by my side, and I can’t give God enough thanks for His faithfulness. Don’t give up. God has the last word.”  (Mexico) (posted 10/31/2016)
“Last night my covenant husband and I attended a worship night. At one point I caught him gazing at me with the sweetest smile with a loving affection I have never seen from him before. He then says to me, ‘Come in close’ and pulls me towards him, wraps both his arms around me and kisses me on the forehead. We just sat there worshipping Jesus together. Together as one, the way God always intended it to be, we sang the words, ‘The battle is won. You can put your weapons down. It is finished. You are surrounded by the arms of peace.’ It has been a prayer of my heart for him to grab my hand during worship so we can worship God as one. God answered that prayer exceedingly abundantly more than I could have ever imagined. I could tangibly feel the Father’s love over both of us and it was like His arms were wrapped tightly around the both of us as my sweetheart’s arms were wrapped around me. It’s such moments of God’s glory that make walking out our story so worth it!”  (Florida) (posted 10/31/2016)
“To be honest I never thought that this day would have come! But my marriage is finally on the path to restoration. We were literally hours away from being officially divorced when suddenly my wife had a change of heart! There is no possible way any human being could’ve done this on their own. This was all God! He moved in such a big way that it just overfilled me with joy! My wife is back!! Although we have a long road ahead of us still, we are on the right track now. God is great and when He makes a promise He definitely keeps it. I had a hard time believing that at times but He is true to His Word! Jeremiah 29:11 has been a verse that I constantly had in my mind and can appreciate now even more. His mercy is beyond compare and He is the God of miracles and that God of second, third, fourth, etc. chances. Those still in the middle of your storm, don’t give up. Just cling onto God with everything you have even if you think nothing can change. Keep seeking Him out. I love you God!”  (Arizona) (posted 10/31/2016)
“Praise God as He continues moving mountains. During my stand God has shown me how to take ‘baby steps’ and trust Him. My husband and I have had a very unhealthy/abusive/co-dependent relationship. One day at a time God has been healing my heart. He has shown me how valuable and worthy I am. That I am a child of God. Praise Him, He is so good. The relationship between my husband and me has been slowly but surely changing how we interact with each other. We found a new church, one that we BOTH like. He seems to be on fire for God. We listen to worship music together and talk about God a lot! Hallelujah, that is something we didn’t do before. Satan is still tempting my husband but I know the victory has already been won. Restoration is a process and God has walked me through every step. My husband comes home in a few weeks! Standers, keep praying, keep believing God is working things on the other side even if you cannot see. Never give up!”  (Georgia) (posted 10/24/2016)
“If it was not for the Lord where would my marriage be? It finally happened after some years of separation without communication. My suddenly happened. My husband asked me on a date but God had different plans for this reunion. Without notice, my husband asked if we could give our marriage a try again. Lord I’m thankful and know the battle continues but for this moment let me just glorify your name. For you truly are El Shaddai.”  (New York) (posted 10/24/2016)
“I am a standing husband who had my prodigal wife come home. A couple of years ago I was forced to leave my home and move out. My only hope was Jesus Christ and I pursued Him and His will. My favorite verse was Isaiah 55:11. I started praying God’s Word, growing closer to God, and always wearing my wedding band. There were many false starts. I almost gave up. ‘BUT GOD’ is always faithful and she is back home for good, our marriage is restored. God restored my marriage through the most difficult circumstances. NEVER GIVE UP. He is faithful. I love You Jesus!”  (Virginia) (posted 10/17/2016)
“PTL my husband came home a couple weeks ago. The devil is fighting even harder now. My husband told me last night he didn’t love me like the other woman. He prayed to God on his knees last night, asking for God’s clear path for him. The devil still has him in bondage, but that will not keep me from seeking and praying for God to move this mountain and put the broken pieces of our marriage back together. I know God will give him a clear mind in His timing. I trust God will make this new. It would be easy to walk away after being told he didn’t love me, but I know what God wants me to do and I can’t wait to see what God has for my marriage and family. I will trust in Him.”  (Virginia). Amen! Ask your husband if he would read Bob’s book, “Finding The Way Home” who was a prodigal or unfaithful for almost three years. Bob shares from his heart what he wished he had known when he returned home from the far country, very suddenly.  Standers, please start praying that your spouse will be willing to read it. There is freedom in Jesus Christ with no guilt or shame! – Charlyne (posted 10/17/2016)
“My prodigal husband visited me for three weeks in August. We really enjoyed our time together and started counseling with my pastor. He is living in another state and we talk daily. He recently asked me to visit him for a couple of weeks and then wants me to move to there permanently. I’m excited that my prodigal came to his senses but now I feel apprehensive. But Proverbs 3:5-6 is in my heart. I will continue to trust in the Lord.”  (Iowa) (posted 10/17/2016)
“I encourage standers to Never Give Up because Greater Things are coming! My husband and I have been married a long time and several of those years we lived apart because he left me and our children. It was hard. He would often come back and then leave again. There were OW. Throughout the separation, I drew closer to God. He gave me strength. I tried to immerse myself in God. I read scripture, prayed, fasted, and journaled. I would write daily letters to God. During a very critical time God showed me to Never Give Up and Greater Things were coming. As I read the Parable in Luke 18:1-8 the words ‘Never Give Up’ leaped off the page. I could NOT give up on my husband no matter what. God also showed me that Greater Things were coming. I stood on those words and eventually my husband came back home and is growing in his relationship with Christ! Praise God! Standers, continue to seek God, have faith, and never give up for God has greater things coming your way!”  (Georgia) (posted 10/17/2016)
“After several months in the far country my prodigal returned home, but to live in the basement, wanting nothing to do with me and telling me there was no hope for reconciliation. Two months later we spoke, both shedding lots of tears and he told me he wouldn’t divorce me. One month later I had divorce papers. I was devastated! Over the weeks that followed I launched into full blown mega prayer warrior mode. The Holy Spirit led me to the basement on my knees, pleading with him to stop the process and allow us to get on our knees together in front of Christ. Then came a letter outlining his feelings of how I’d failed as a wife. The next morning, I replied with a Holy Spirit response of responsibility and gratitude for his courage to share these things with me. That same afternoon he emailed his attorney to stop the divorce proceedings. PTL!”  (Ohio) (posted 10/11/2016)
“I can’t believe I’m actually writing a testimony. To God be the glory! What a valley my family has been through. My husband said he was done, he said he wanted a divorce. There was another woman, he said he was miserable with me. I wanted to run away and disappear at first, but God stopped me in my tracks. He placed a desire in my heart to stand for my marriage and then I came across RMM. Thank God for this ministry! I was told from various places that I officially had an ‘out’ from my marriage, but I didn’t want out. I felt the tug of my marriage vows and knew this whole situation was bigger than myself. I praise God that I didn’t submit to my hurt and emotions. Instead, I placed my eyes on Jesus. The circumstances were horrible. The pain I experienced was so deep, it was physical. But God asked me to place my eyes on Him instead of my circumstances. My faith was made solid. My trust in the Lord was affirmed. Our God still does miracles and my family is a living breathing example!”  (Arizona) (posted 10/11/2016)
“My spouse has come home! He’s been home a few months and it hasn’t been easy but the Lord is so faithful. I have been afraid to share my testimony but I have to remember that we overcome by the word of our testimony. My husband has expressed ‘his plans’ to leave again but I know Satan is a liar and he is defeated. I know my husband doesn’t have the fight in him like Christ but praise God because He chose me and taught me how to fight for my spouse. My God is not a halfway God and He still continues to give me promises regarding my spouse and our marriage. I will continue to fight in my prayer closet while the Lord fights the battle that has already been won! Some days are harder than others but I continue to love my spouse like Christ and submit to him like I’m supposed to and my Lord will do the rest. God is faithful!”  (Florida)A false start may happen when your spouse comes home as there is a tug of war going on between Satan and Your Lord God especially in your spouse’s mind. But remember, Satan was defeated! My prayer has always been that your spouse will read Bob’s book, “Finding The Way Home.” (Yes, read it also, before they come home.) Bob writes to the prodigal and tells every prodigal very bluntly about severing all contact with the other person forever and discusses many other important issues in your marriage. Bob shares his personal testimony about his almost leaving me after our remarriage. Bob did get victory in finally telling the other women they could not have any more contact at all. Satan is tempting your spouse to go back to the other person as the enemy does not want your marriage restored! Please remember this is a spiritual battle! Pray for your spouse’s salvation daily and declare scriptures like Acts 26:18 and Hosea 2:6-7. Never forget that God is greater!” – Charlyne (posted 10/11/2016)

“God is SO good! My prodigal husband has returned home. He is really trying to sever the relationship between he and the OW. It truly did happen SUDDENLY when my husband came home. We are now planning on moving to a new state where we can completely start over with each other and our children. Please pray for me to keep learning how to ‘zip my lips’ and not to nag him about things that God can change in His perfect timing. He is changing for the better every day. I realize now that just because the prodigal comes home, it does NOT mean you stop praying and standing. If anything, you need to be even STRONGER in the Lord because the enemy is going to make you think that things are easy now. Definitely NOT true! Keep praying my fellow standers! Your suddenly is right around the corner!”  (Florida) (posted 10/11/2016)
“I want to thank God for bringing my prodigal home. I never thought my suddenly would come and never expected it to be like Charlyne explained – suddenly. I am so blessed. After a few false starts my husband called me and said he was moving to the same state and was leaving the OW and coming back home; that he dreamed so many times about coming home. He made it really clear God was speaking loudly to him and he finally listened and came home. It’s been some time since he came home and he’s an amazing man whom God is still working with. God is faithful. Believe standers, never lose hope. God is working on the other side of the mountain. To Him be the glory.”  (Arizona) (posted 10/4/2016)
“I can’t thank this ministry enough for giving me the courage and strength to stand for my marriage. I would have walked away from my marriage due to all the lies the enemy fed me. This ministry gave me the tools to pray for myself, my husband and my marriage. The most valuable lesson I learned is that the Lord will fight for me, I just need to be still. After several months, I am happy to report that my husband has left the OW and we are committed to restoring our marriage!”  (Florida) (posted 10/4/2016)
“When I first married my wife, I tried to run my marriage my way. I constantly argued with my wife, eventually left and returned months later after the birth of our daughter. Shortly after, my wife left due to insecurities and my lack of cooperation. I was broken on so many levels and had to raise a daughter alone. I prayed daily and this site gave me so much motivation each day. I read the devotions diligently seeking answers; I prayed daily and ran into many false starts. On those days I always remembered my favorite verse, John 3:16. I had to remember that I’m only facing a season of hardship because God’s timing is better than I can imagine. I only needed faith the size of a mustard seed and to fight through the doubts deep down. The Holy Spirit will guide you in these times. God has the final say. You can’t bring your spouse back, but God can. All I had to do was let go and let God take care of the things that seemed impossible. Now we are together and plan on renewing our vows soon.”  (Louisiana) (posted 10/4/2016)

“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)
“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)
“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 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)
“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)
