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.

“God is good. My husband has returned! The year he left, I lost myself in God’s Word. I read testimony after testimony of marriages being restored while waiting for God to release my miracle. Just as I was about to give up, I cried out to Him and asked for a word and He heard my cry! The next day, my husband called and said he was coming home. He left the other woman and was ready and willing to work on our marriage. It has now been several months since he has returned. We are closer than we have ever been! God is faithful to His promises. There were so many days I lost hope and fed into the lies of the devil, believing that God was not going to restore my marriage. BUT GOD! He would not let me give up. He picked me up and restored my hope each and every time! And He will do the same for you! Keep the faith, keep praying, keep believing. You are one day closer to your breakthrough than you were yesterday. God will never fail you. He is a promise keeper and His Word always comes to pass.”  (Texas) (posted 6/21/2017)
“God is good. My husband and I separated for a couple years and I gave up on my stand and stopped praying for our marriage. My husband contacted me saying that he wanted our marriage. God is good! My marriage is on its way to restoration. Please continue to pray for us and I will pray for you all. Glory to God.”  (Texas) (posted 6/21/2017)
“I am praising God because He has restored my best friend’s marriage. They are getting remarried today after being divorced for years. While standing for my own marriage, I was keeping my stand to myself. Several months ago, I shared with my friend about my stand. She thought I was crazy, having been my maid of honor and knowing everything that has happened with my husband and me. But God in His awesomeness would use my stand to plant a seed in her heart. When she told me in the New Year that God had put a love in her heart for her ex-husband and to go back to him I was shocked! I am in awe of how God used my best friend, who wasn’t looking or thinking twice about her marriage or husband in years, to show me His power. I was getting discouraged in my own stand and it was like God wanted me to see firsthand His power. I have seen every inch of her restoration and witnessed firsthand the power of prayer and how God changes hearts. Hold on standers, your day of restoration and mine is coming!”  (Maryland) (posted 6/21/2017)
“I have been standing for a few years, through a court divorce and custody division, OW and non-covenant child. But with precious encouragement from RMM, scripture and signs, I’ve stood for my marriage. Recently I’ve been praying specifically for the Holy Spirit to move in my husband’s life and praying a Hedge of Protection and armor of God around him. Today he called and revealed how bad his situation really is and wanted to know if I’m willing to accept his non-covenant child in our family. He asked if we could start slow and give our relationship another try! It’s all God! Praying the Holy Spirit will inspire in him a total conversion of heart and that God will untangle the circumstances of the other child. Keep faith and hope friends, your prayers are heard!”  (Alaska) (posted 6/21/2017)
“PTL! I cannot summarize the amazing testimony God is creating through my stand! My husband told me again he wanted a divorce and NOTHING would change that so I could file soon or he would. I zipped my lips and continued to pray, praise and fast fervently. He visited two weeks later and I had no idea what to expect. He said he is firing his lawyer and we will rebuild slowly! Earlier on God told me ‘There will be no divorce’ and ‘You won’t need a lawyer,’ amongst MANY other great promises. It’s amazing to give Him the glory as His Words manifest against all odds. He makes a way where there is no way and does immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine. My husband is committed out of conviction/for the kids and isn’t loving towards me yet, but God said, ‘Take him back in any condition as it’s HIS work to do!’ We have a long road, but this is our ‘suddenly!’ Praise God from whom all blessings flow. We’re making future plans and I continue to pray his heart softens and he repents and draws close to God for healing.”  (North Dakota) (posted 6/12/2017)
“My husband is home! Praise God! It really did happen suddenly. The 1first part of my stand was depressing with a victim mentality, wondering how God could do this to me. I finally opened my heart to hear from God and allowed Him to comfort me while He worked on my husbands’ heart. I let go and let God! Although our situation looked horrible, I felt such peace. I was able to love my husband with God’s heart and agape love. There was an OW involved, holidays spent alone, buckets of tears, financial problems, disappointments, but every morning I would ask God to give me the desires of His heart and I still loved my husband. I knew that I needed to continue to stand. One day when both my husband and myself were ready, He would restore us! I prepared for this moment because I believed it would happen. I purchased Bob’s books for my husband and he’s so grateful that I did. He’s not ashamed of the emotions he’s feeling because of them. Standers, trust in God and be prepared for your suddenly!”  (California) (posted 6/12/2017)
“God is good! My suddenly has come! My husband is not physically in the home yet but he has told me that he wants to work on our marriage and that he loves me and wants to spend the rest of his life with me! Thank You, Jesus! For the first several months or so I was praying but I was not fully letting go of the situation; I was trying to find ways to get my husband home and I was trying to manipulate the situation. It wasn’t until I fully let go and let God. A few months back I was praying in my car and I was telling God it was too hard and that if He wanted to keep standing I would need a sign. As soon as I got done praying I saw a semi that said Rapid and I thought to myself that could mean the same thing as swift. Then right behind the rapid truck was a Swift truck! I was in awe with God’s signs. I learned to trust in God and put Him first and let Him fight for me. My husband and I are communicating better now than we ever have and only God could bring him to where he is now. Keep the faith!”  (Texas) (posted 6/12/2017)
“My marriage has been restored for 18 years. My spouse and I have been involved in different aspects of ministry over the years, but recently the Lord has had us focusing on supporting standers through prayer and counsel. I have been connected to some amazing people, including a stander halfway around the world. Technology allows us to connect and a friendship is growing. I don’t understand why God has chosen this, but I give Him praise that He uses me to come alongside others who are on a journey I have taken.”  (California) (posted 6/12/2017)
“Praise the Lord! All I can say is thank You to Jesus! My prodigal is back home. Only God! A total and ‘suddenly’ change. I know the battle is not over. Please continue to pray for each other. Pray for his/her soul, spiritual soul, first. The rest will follow. Stand firm. Always. We are standers for life! Don’t give up. I know. You are saying, ‘Yeah, yeah…we just don’t understand how bad the situation is…’ Trust me, I know and used to say the same thing until now. Our situations might differ, but we share the same pain and God sees that. God is working. My only advice is to praise Him even when you don’t see any change. Keep praising even when you don’t feel like it. He is fighting for you and your prodigal. We know we are on the winning team! Praise him in advance. PTL! Psalm 23:5.”  (Florida) (posted 6/8/2017)
“PTL. My marriage was restored! My husband and I were going through a divorce. We had been separated for several years and he had moved on with someone else. We were living in separate states as well. I asked the Lord to please stop the divorce and every time a court date was set to finalize the divorce, it would be changed to a later date. I knew that was the Lord. I stayed in the Word and trusted and believed that my marriage would be restored. The day of the divorce finally came and I was in my kitchen looking at the time realizing I had an hour and a half left for the Lord to turn it around if He was going to. That’s when my husband walked in the house. I assumed he was there to see our son who was still asleep. Then I noticed he looked like he had been crying, but I did not say anything. That’s when he said, ‘I am not a good man, I have done terrible things to you,’ and he broke down crying. We started talking and 45 minutes before it was to be final, we called off the divorce. It was all God.”  (Alabama) (posted 6/2/2017)
“To God be the glory! God is good. Never give up and never lose faith because God always hears and will always make a way when the enemy makes it seem there is none. I remarried my wife after several years of being divorced. When we first separated, I was devastated and didn’t know what to do so I found a church and started my relationship with God. I prayed and cried out to Him for months and asked him to return my wife and family to me. There was no change so I got discouraged and started drifting away from God. I started going on the wrong path. I would still pray, asking God to bless my ex-wife and protect her and my kids. My prayers were no longer of me asking Him to bring my wife back, but one night God changed everything. She sent me a text and told me that God had spoken to her and told her to go back to her family. Now we both have a strong relationship with God.”  (Texas) (posted 6/2/2017)
“I’m praising God this morning for answered prayers. I found this site some time ago, after my husband was drinking heavily, was unfaithful and kicked us out of our home. I immediately knew I needed to stand for my marriage. It was shown to me the things I needed to change. My prodigal and I communicated regularly because of our daughters and we have had a couple false starts, but a few days ago the Lord spoke to him and he has given his life to God! He finally acknowledges he has a drinking problem, that God needs to be first in his life, and he needs his family. He has asked for my forgiveness and says he can’t wait to see what the good Lord has in store for our family. He wants us home! I give God all the glory and praise for the great things He’s doing in our lives!”  (Tennessee) (posted 6/2/2017)
“First I want to say glory to our Heavenly Father, there is nothing impossible for Him. My wife has been home for a month after some time of separation and divorce proceedings. My wife still needs to accept God, but I know that what our Heavenly Father has started He will finish. We are still a work in progress. I want to say to all who are still waiting, be patient and glorify God in everything, good and bad. He is in control and can see the bigger picture. It’s probably more difficult when the prodigal comes back, so develop a personal relationship with our Heavenly Father. I cannot stress this enough. Praise God in every situation and don’t look at the circumstances.”  (California) (posted 6/2/2017)
“I’ve imagined writing this praise report for a few years, and here it is: My husband and I remarried yesterday on our original anniversary date. It looked impossible and was a horrible mess…but with God all things are possible. I am so thankful to Him and to Rejoice Marriage Ministries. As a second praise report, I have a colleague who had given up on her marriage due to her husband’s infidelities. I didn’t even realize she had stopped wearing her ring, but she told me that I in part inspired her to put the ring back on. Standers, people are watching you. I know it may be difficult finding pure joy in others benefiting from your stand while you continue to struggle, but God hasn’t abandoned you. While I wouldn’t have chosen this experience for myself, it’s proven to be an invaluable spiritual exercise in faith and love which will undoubtedly serve my life going forward. Please continue to pray for us and for a complete healing of my husband’s depression. Thank you!”  (Kentucky) (posted 5/23/2017)
“Jesus did it again! My marriage is restored. I have forgiven my husband and he has ended things with the OW. God opened his eyes to see that he was being deceived. We still have a long way to go. We still have matters to handle like a non-covenant child. This website has been a great blessing to me. My husband is not born again yet, but I believe the God who restored my marriage will do it in His perfect timing. My situation looked impossible. I didn’t know if I could forgive my husband. I prayed and I fasted till I surrendered all to Him and He did what only He could do.”  (Belgium) (posted 5/23/2017)
“Praise and thank You Lord for my husband, for our marriage, our divorce, our remarriage and our ongoing restoration and salvation. Even in some of our darkest valleys I, through the grace of God, told my beloved brave soldiering prodigal spouse that I would go through the fire all again. He would look at me like I had lost my mind, but I saw admiration in his eyes. How can you love me after all I have done? I never stopped. Love never ends. I thank God so much for holding onto our hearts. Today is our anniversary and God gave me a beautiful rainbow. I will hope in the Lord always. Thy will be done. I pray God will continue to purify and mold and give life to us as we journey every day closer to His open heart as He heals ours. Amen.”  (New Hampshire) (posted 5/15/2017)
“For the sake of giving God ALL the glory and encouraging others, please allow me to share that after YEARS of frustration, heartache, separation, divorce and all that comes with that, my Holy Father has proven Himself faithful! After buckets of tears, many prayers and a final surrender to God’s sovereignty, my husband (I’ve never referred to him as ex) wants to begin working on us! O how I praise Him! While my heart and soul rejoice for being in the midst of the restoration phase, I realize my stand is just beginning. ‘Father help us, strengthen us and lead us! Amen.’ Asking for prayers.”  (Ohio) (posted 5/15/2017)
“My husband and I were separated when I left due to unresolved issues. I did not want to rush to divorce and came across your website. I began to focus on fasting and prayer. Just as I got to the point where I accepted that we may never reconcile, he contacted me unexpectedly. It was clear that he was ready to work on things. After many months of separation, we began living together again. There are still challenges, but things are better than they were. I continue to rely on prayer and fasting to strengthen our marriage. I’m expecting a baby girl soon, to God be the glory!”  (Georgia) (posted 5/15/2017)
“I found RMM at a very low point in my life. I was in Christ, but everyone around me was telling me to give up on my prodigal spouse. I couldn’t go anywhere without someone reminding me of his adultery and the other OW. I often questioned God because the OW my prodigal husband was seeing was in the church, they attended church together, etc. RMM showed me how to ‘zip my lips’ and to just pray the proper prayer points. After reading different RMM posts and guidelines, several months had gone by and my suddenly happened. I will never forget that day. I was about to give up, not on God, but my marriage. I was struggling financially and didn’t have much to give, however I sowed a seed into RMM. Later that night the unexplainable happened.”  (Florida) (posted 5/15/2017)
“My husband was an in-home prodigal for several months and has lived with the OW for several more. The week before Easter he told me about a job offer he had been given. He said that he couldn’t take it because it was too far away and he couldn’t make it on his own. I took a step in faith and offered to go with him. The next day he called to let me know he had accepted the job and would our boys and I go with him. He hadn’t even told the OW about the job yet. He went to Easter services with us and the next day, in answer to prayer, I was able to be with him as his father passed away. Just two weeks before, that probably wouldn’t have been possible. Last night he began moving back into our home! We have a lot of healing to do, but praise God, suddenlies do happen! Never give up and never stop looking to God. As I continue to pray for our marriage, I pray for all other marriages.”  (Ohio) (posted 5/9/2017)
“Standers, believe me restoration is coming! God can do anything, be still! There was the OM, financial issues, separation with divorce papers not filed. As a man, it was very hard to not be in control. I realized only God wins this spiritual war. I needed to give God His time and obey. I had to give my wife time to heal. I heard ‘I love you, but I am not in love with you. I’m in good hands, move on with your life and file the divorce papers.’ But God has the last word. Suddenly she called me to come home. Don’t force God to give you a sign. Be kind, patient and most of all show unconditional love no matter what. Our marriage now is as sweet as ever. She told me she missed me and cried while I was gone. I showed unconditional love (I’m not perfect, I messed up many times) and gave it to God. God will do the hard work. Stand back, pray and tell your story for prayer. Keep your ring on.”  (Florida) (posted 5/9/2017)
“Praise the Lord, my prayers are finally being answered! Last year I suffered a terrible accident. I was unable to walk for six months due to my injuries. During this time, I found out my husband had just started a relationship with another woman via Facebook. My world came crashing down, and I thought life as I knew it would never be the same. I was desperate for God to save my marriage. I came across RMM and began to battle the enemy through prayer and fasting. I chose to listen to God and seek His truths. I chose to stand when it all seemed to be lost and dead. After many months of prayer, my husband finally came to understand he had been deceived by the enemy and that God was calling him back to His kingdom. I have declared victory in the name of Jesus Christ and I cannot wait to share how God is going to redeem my life like he did with Job. I will testify when he turns my ashes into beauty in His timing. Don’t ever give up!”  (California) (posted 5/9/2017)
“My husband I have been apart and divorced for several years. But my God did it! My marriage is restored. He came home last week after leaving because of an OW and him constantly telling me to move on. It was SO painful during my stand, but now that pain seems so far away. Like labor pains. I got so close to God. So close in fact I got to the point that I was ok with it being just me and Jesus. I listened to God first. Even though many gave me ‘godly’ council that did make sense, it wasn’t what God wanted me to do. God doesn’t recognize divorce as an end to marriage. We shouldn’t either. Stand strong. Listen to Him first and try to enjoy the process because He has big plans for us standers.”  (Pennsylvania) (posted 5/9/2017)
“I praise God for His faithfulness even when I am not. After a couple of years of separation, my marriage is finally being restored. God was showing me signs, but I thought that the enemy was tormenting me with false hope. A few months ago I decided to give up my stand and file for divorce. I prayed and asked God to prevent me from giving up too soon if it was out of His will. My husband called me the week that I was planning to file and asked me to go out with him, gave me Valentine’s Day gifts, and asked if we could take a vacation together. We have been together ever since and he has been making plans for us to start over in another state. He even visited our home church on Easter. We just came back from that vacation and I am seeing God answer all of my prayers at one time. I urge you to never give up, keep praying and know that God’s timing is not our timing. If He said it, then He will do it. Just be patient because His Word will never return void. PTL I truly thank God.”  (Michigan) (posted 5/9/2017)
“DON’T GIVE UP. No matter how much it hurts, zip your lips, take your pain to Christ. Journal God’s victory in your marriage stand in faith. Now I see every horrible satanic fog that crushed my heart. Turning to Christ daily to pray a hedge of protection and thorns against adultery actually works. God absolutely responds with greater power to the satanic fog each time. My prodigal has returned in my sixth month of pregnancy, saying God sent a dream about his son. He is overjoyed with having a son. My husband asked me to make money and buy a family home together. Amen! The prayers kept my husband away from adultery so he is back to marriage covenant intimacy only. These testimonials and devotionals have been my lifeline to Jesus. Thank you God, the babies get their father as promised. I’m helping another marriage stander too. Just don’t give up, God has your victory!”  (Texas) (posted 5/3/2017)
“There are times we feel God has forsaken and abandoned us. But God. He continues to prove us wrong. I have been standing for while and began to question if God told me to or if I was doing it because I didn’t know what else to do. Our son entered a string instrument competition and, unknown to me, he asked his dad to be there. I felt that in my own strength I couldn’t encounter him. I took my fears to the throne and prayed for the Lord’s strength. I asked the Holy Spirit to take control of the situation. Praise the Lord, my Savior answered my prayers. My husband came, sat a few seats away from us in the same row, stayed to the end of the performance and waited around outside with us until we were ready to leave. I praise God for the peace He gave to me for this time. There is nothing that is impossible for my God. Waiting in the Lord as I wait on the Lord. Amen.”  (Trinidad and Tobago) (posted 5/3/2017)
“Last year my now ex-husband met a woman and started talking and texting and then started meeting. He said they loved each other and wanted to get married. I could not believe this. We had been married so long and I still loved him. I started praying every day that God would change his heart and take her out of his life. He wanted us to remain friends even though he filed for divorce. I moved out, but kept praying that God would change his heart. I prayed and asked God to help me to forgive him for what he did. I knew that was the only way I would have peace. They did get married, but the day after, she left. He was heartbroken, but I was there to help him. Before they got married he told me he was sorry for what he did and always would love me. We started spending time together and God answered my prayer, not only to change his heart, but for us to get back together. We are working on our problems and getting remarried soon. God does answer our prayers in His time.”  (Florida) (posted 5/3/2017)
“After many false starts, even a divorce, I’m happy to announce that my marriage has been restored. My husband and I often communicated, but he would usually tell me to move on, that we weren’t getting back together. He recently took a job in a ministry in another state. Easter afternoon I received a text from him asking where do I feel we went wrong in our marriage. A few more texts which led to the next day him sending a video text stating that he can’t wait to marry me. At the ministry he is with, the pastor encouraged him to go back and get his wife and that’s what he has done. Just when I was at my breaking point and cried out to God Easter morning about having little faith and doubt, that’s when He showed me He has been working it out all along. My son and I are joining my husband when school gets out in May. Standers, never quit standing. Keep fasting and praying even when you feel like you can’t hear God’s voice.”  (Louisiana) (posted 5/3/2017)
“This website was referred to me by a relative a few months ago. My husband and I had separated. After I gave it all over to God and asked that He let His will, not my will, be done in my life and began rejoicing with a heart of expectancy, I was able to find peace and strength I did not know I had. I began praying for my husband every day all through the day. I also began praying for the OW. In one of Charlyne’s messages Easter week, she asked that we pray for our prodigal spouses to be touched by the Lord to turn from their sinful ways and that they will have a deep desire to return home that week. I did just that and rested in the Lord (Matthew 11:28-30). My husband texted me that Saturday morning, the last day of the week, and asked to return home. He has ended things with the OW and is now at home. Praise God! We have both committed to working on our marriage. Prayer changes things. What is impossible with man, is possible with God (Luke 18:27). Keep praying, keep the faith and keep believing; your prodigal will return.’  (Louisiana) (posted 4/25/2017)
“‘Lift up your eyes and look around; all your children gather and come to you. As surely as I live,’ declares the Lord, ‘you will wear them all as ornaments; you will put them on, like a bride.’ Isaiah 49:18 My restoration testimony not only includes God restoring my marriage, but also restoring my relationship with my precious children. When my husband and I divorced, he gained custody of our three children. For years I was bitter and angry towards him, which resulted in my estrangement from my children because I couldn’t get along with their father. Now, with my new heart and love towards my children’s father, I am watching God heal and restore my broken relationship with my children! In fact, my oldest daughter invited me to lunch, the same one who had the hardest time accepting me back into her life. God is moving, and soon we will be the WHOLE family God intended from the beginning of time.”  (Texas) (posted 4/25/2017)
“Praise God! This is way overdue. My husband and I had no communication for almost a year and I moved out of our home state to find work. I kept standing, paying support for our children and tithing regularly. Then it went from a text from him, to communicating daily. From becoming companions again, to monthly visits and spending Thanksgiving and Christmas as a family. Finally, SUDDENLY, he asked me to move in with him. I was reluctant at first because there are some areas that God’s still working on with us, like removing his addictions, especially alcohol (I’ve been free from alcohol 23 months), but I saw God softening his heart and decided to love him unconditionally, living as husband and wife. We’re not yet fully restored/remarried and I know I must stand for life, but I have faith and so many answered prayers. You’re in my prayers!”  (Nevada) (posted 4/25/2017)
“Praise the Lord! My husband has been home for several months. We have had some very rough months because he is an in-home prodigal. I have also prayed for the OW since I found out about her, and the Lord has answered one of my prayers for her. She has moved on and is dating someone her age who is single. A lot of times the enemy attacks me with thoughts that my husband is hiding something from me. While praying about this the Lord gave me Luke 8:17. Now I know that if there is something, God will reveal it in His time, not on my time. Praise God!”  (California) (posted 4/25/2017)
“All Glory to God. After several months of standing, my husband is home. He decided himself that staying was best. It is my forgiveness, patience, love and humility towards him despite the OW and brokenness in our hearts that helped him make that decision. What he does not see, is that it is Christ in me that allows me to act in such ways towards him. God’s love for my husband has truly become my own. Now that he is back home, my prayer is my children and I can be a visible and very present vessel of God’s love for him that will draw him back unto the fellowship of Jesus Christ. Glory to God for removing his heart of stone and giving him a heart of flesh. I’m trusting God to rebuild His fallen tabernacle and my husband shall love his God again. ‘For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.’  Isaiah 43:19 (NLT). My answer is, ‘Lord I see it, I see a river in my desolate marriage!’”  (Kansas) (posted 4/25/2017)
“My prodigal left me for several months, without any communication. I would try to call and text him every day, to no avail. I prayed for his return or at least to ease my pain. At that time, I didn’t know there was an OW, since we separated because of other issues. I found out about the OW after we got back together. I tried to zip my lips and was patient with him, but I cried every day. It was one of the hardest things I have done in my life, to not be angry and forgive a deceiver. I was only able to forgive and forget what he did to me after a year, through prayers, meditation and from reading Charlyne Cares and listening to her podcasts every day. Five years later we are still together and going strong. He now has given up his OW and tells me his schedule daily to prove to me he is faithful. There is nothing, but love and respect between us, a renewed relationship that is only possible with God’s help. Do not give up, keep on standing. God has a plan for you and it is only for your good and nothing less.”  (California) (posted 4/25/2017)
“Praise God! After I surrendered and gave to God all my worries about my prodigal husband, he left his other women and asked for another chance. I just thank God for returning my husband home. Time is the most important over pride.  Nothing is impossible with God, just pray and have faith. Never give up praying for your husband or wife. Your will be done, Lord.”  (Philippines) (posted 4/17/2017)
“Thank you for helping me find my way to my dear Lord. My marriage has been restored. I was devastated the day my husband told me he wanted to separate. This ministry led me to know exactly how to pray and commit myself to our dear Lord. I came to truly know the Lord like I never had before. I went back into our marriage with a completely different attitude, feeling the love and peace that God has shown me. I will now be His disciple, to set an example for my husband. I give my dear Lord all the praise and glory for our marriage restoration. I want to give back what was given to me. God comes first in my life. Once I accepted and realized that, He took it from there.”  (Texas) (posted 4/11/2017)
“Often I could not bring myself to read the testimonies written by others. Either they reminded me of the mess my marriage was still in or else I felt so burdened with other’s pain that to avoid reading was the best way for me to handle those emails. Today, I realize there is power in affirmation. There is strength in knowing there is a solid promise that only our God can provide. I’m here to tell you that God will bring you out of the valley of pain and darkness. You probably won’t recognize the ‘new’ you but believe, have solid faith and trust that the great Potter has reshaped your life, your mind, and your heart. My broken marriage…my husband has returned home after many twisted years. Although I realize this is just the beginning of restoration, I know it’s also the end of a horrific season. Don’t give up. Fill your days with goodness, the Word, service and keep your heart open.”  (Michigan) (posted 4/4/2017)
“My husband just walked away from our marriage without any warning to me. After being separated for several years, the Lord spoke to my husband early one morning and told him to go home. He quit his job and moved to be with me while I took a new job. Our marriage has been restored for many years now. We are both preaching the gospel to the lost. Most of all, we are going after prodigals, encouraging and laboring with them, letting them know that God is able to breathe life on a dead situation, because He did it for us. I just want to encourage you to keep fasting, praying and reading the Word. Numbers 23:19 was one of my favorite scriptures that I held on to. When I felt like giving up, I would just cry out to the Lord and He came by to see about me, all the while he was touching my husband. My husband gives his testimony just before he preaches The Word of God on how God restored him and our marriage. There are so many people being encouraged now that we are sharing our story.”  (Maryland) (posted 3/27/2017)
“My husband and I were separated for a couple of years and the Lord has restored my marriage. I thank God for all His promises He kept.”  (Maryland) (posted 3/27/2017)
“My betrothed found me to be in a wrong communication with another woman and snapped. At first I took it for granted, but as time passed, it broke me. I fell down to the Lord and discovered He wanted to use that to TRANSFORM me. I let Him work in me. My experience of steadfast praying and fasting for some many months was the greatest thing I had ever done. At the end of it, God told me to start thanking Him for restoration. Even though it felt foolish, I had not heard a word from her in all that time, I did. Four days later, a friend came visiting, something God had used to help me, and as he drove into the driveway, I received a barrage of messages from my fiancé! God had touched her heart, out of nowhere! Today, we are married and expecting our first child. God works miracles!”  (Nebraska) (posted 3/27/2017)
“By the grace of God my marriage has been restored. My spouse came home and we renewed our vows. The Lord told me to continue to stand in the gap for my spouse and family. I understood standing in the gap is like being part of a fence outside: come rain, sun, or snow. ‘How long Lord?’ I said. The answer, ‘Forever and I am with you.’  I thank God for you brothers/sisters, for your testimonies. Don’t give up, trust our God for His unfailing love. Through teaching on this website I learned to be quiet. When I fall, I repent. Every day I pray Psalm 141:3 – Set a guard over my mouth O Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips. Standers, be faithful, be alert, for the enemy is like a roaring lion. I will continue to pray for all standers and for restored marriages. God bless.”  (United Kingdom) (posted 3/27/2017)
“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)
