Restored Marriage Testimonies


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.

“It happened suddenly but my husband is home to the glory of God. After him having kids with the OW, marrying her and divorcing me, he is now back home as the Lord had promised throughout the years. He appeared like he was enjoying his life but he now tells me he was miserable. This ministry taught me how to ‘zip my lips’ and pray with scriptures. I can tell everyone that God is always faithful even when we aren’t and His Word is true. Standers, don’t give up, have faith in the Word and pray the Word. Even after the return, keep praying and make prayer your lifestyle. Don’t let down your guard. Trust that the Lord who brought my husband home will do the same for you. Luke 1:37 was my scripture whenever it seemed like nothing was happening on the other side of the mountain.”  (South Africa) (posted 2/14/2017)
“I’m praising my Lord Jesus Christ not because my husband is back home but because through this trial I have drawn so near to the Lord. I have been separated from my husband for some time now and I’ve seen how things turn for the worst. My husband started the process of the divorce. I feel as if something broke in my heart but I also feel a sense of peace that I can’t explain. That night when my husband told me the bad news, I felt like God was speaking to my heart and saying, ‘Can’t you see that I have to break this old thing so I can make something new?’ Isaiah 43:19 (KJV) This scripture has blessed my heart and I have to trust God in whatever He is doing in my family’s life is all good no matter how it looks and feels. I had another opportunity to tell my husband that night that I would continue to stand for him forever. My pastor and his wife said this changes nothing. It’s only a piece of paper with no value in God’s eyes! God can do a miracle! Please don’t get discouraged!”  (Texas) (posted 2/14/2017)
“Praise God! My husband is home. We’ve had several false starts in the past several months. But I trust God that this time is the start for the rest of our lives. I pray for every stander and prodigal. The struggle is hard at times and sometimes so peaceful. But I put my full trust in our God. With Him, all things are possible. In Jesus’ name, a stander for life.”  (Louisiana) (posted 2/14/2017)
“My husband came across your website because I walked away from him and was living in my own place. He began praying for us and here I am, back home, and believing with God all things are possible. Thank you for inspiring him. We have been praying and reading our Bibles every day. The future can only become brighter. Amen.”  (Indiana) (posted 2/14/2017)
“PTL. I got separated from my wife several months ago. There was no communication between us. I was advised by families and friends to let go, forget the marriage and move on with my life. I was in so much pain and confused. God used my neighbor, who is also standing, to introduce RMM to me. The resources helped me. I kept reading testimonies of standers and my faith was renewed. I started fasting and praying for the restoration of my marriage. Communication was restored between me and my wife. I saw her after so many months. We were able to settle our differences. She’s right here beside me as I type this testimony. I serve a God who is living. Days ago, because of the way everything was, it looked hopeless, but when it was God’s time for my wife to come home, nothing could stop her. If God can do this, what is it He cannot do? PTL standers, keep standing, He will do it.”  (Nigeria) (posted 2/14/2017)
“Praise God! It is with great joy and thankfulness to the Lord that I can report that my husband is home! I had been standing for some time. Just like Charlyne’s story, all of my friends and family said, ‘Divorce him. Be done with him.’ But I stayed. I stood. I prayed. I knew God was going to restore my marriage. At the beginning, my stand was so hard. I had the hardest time ‘zipping my lips.’ It was only when I completely surrendered my husband to the Lord when my suddenly occurred. My love has been home for three months now; we are in the process of rebuilding our lives. God has completely transformed my husband! I’ve read so many testimonies saying, ‘Standers, stay strong. Don’t give up or give in.’ It is absolutely true! God WILL restore your marriage. He WILL touch your prodigal’s heart. Have faith. Sit quietly and wait on the Lord. He WILL do it. Thank You, Jesus!”  (Virginia) (posted 2/7/2017)
“Praise God. My beloved and I are together again. We are allowing God to lead us and are taking it slowly. Continue to pray for us to ‘Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness’ and for me to never stop standing. Please sisters and brothers, continue to trust God and don’t give up hope.”  (New York) (posted 2/7/2017)
“After a couple of years apart, during which my husband repeatedly said that he had no intention of ever coming home, he has moved back in! Although he is not a believer, he has also been to my church several times. God completely crushed him in his attempted life away from me; now God has reunited us in a better relationship than we had before.”  (California) (posted 2/7/2017)
“After some time of standing alone, my husband divorced me. RMM helped me through every difficult day he was gone. I developed a faith and peace never known. Testimonies gave me hope which died the day he divorced me. Peace was still mine and I carried on my life. He did as well. He stayed sober, got his business booming and got himself a girlfriend. I stayed faithful. Some months later he has returned to me, saying it was a mistake divorcing me and he should not have left me those years ago. It is surreal to have him back. In the past, I would have been hurt, bitter and unforgiving. Rejoice Marriage Ministries was at the center of helping me find my way through this and to having the faith and peace to accept him back. There is no doubt in my mind God is working in my marriage and all marriages. It is my prayer for you to receive the incredible strength through God as did I. What seems impossible alone is quite possible with God. Let my story encourage.”  (Illinois) (posted 2/7/2017)
“I’m sitting in my car praising God because today, 1:30 p.m., was supposed to be when the divorce was finalized! But God! He moved on my husband’s heart in a mighty way two weeks ago. My husband came to his senses after two false starts. He dismissed the divorce and contacted all the OW that he was talking to and told them that is married and will be staying with his wife. I’m in AWE watching how my husband and marriage is changing for the good before my eyes. My husband is so on fire for God. He wakes up and prays every morning and puts on the full armor of God. We are doing a 21-day Daniel Fast together, which will be his first time to fast. God, you are worthy and faithful. Standers, don’t look at what is going on around you. Hold fast to God’s promise and His Word. Trust God and know that your spouse is coming home in God’s timing which is the best time!”  (Texas) (posted 1/31/2017)
“Please do not give up hope! This time last year my husband was absent and active in drug and alcohol addiction. Every dark cloud surrounded me and it seemed as if the more I prayed the worse things got. I remained in prayer and walked by faith. My husband is now home, paying ALL the bills and loves his new job. We moved to a new area and we have devotions every morning. He prays and is now leading his family to Christ. Recently, I saw a warehouse by my home with more than a dozen Covenant Transport trucks parked. This was God confirming another healed marriage. Praise the King of Kings!”  (Pennsylvania) (posted 1/31/2017)
“Some time ago my husband of 20+ years committed adultery. In my broken fury, I threw him out of the house. By the next day, all anger had disappeared and only hurt remained and I knew that God put forgiveness in my heart and the hope of restoration. But my husband would not hear of it, and continued his affair even going so far as filing for divorce and asking the OW to marry him. He literally moved away to a far country and felt no remorse (or so it seemed). After he had been gone a few months, he wrote me to tell me that he can’t stop thinking about me and that he misses the kids more than he thought possible. Right now, he is on his way back to our country. When I asked how long he was coming for he said ‘forever.’ When I first tuned into RMM, I thought they were all crazy: waiting on cheating spouses who abandoned families. But God kept drawing me back and having me pray for restoration, and now my husband is on his way back! God is able. Don’t quit.”  (Canada) (posted 1/31/2017)
“PTL! My suddenly just happened. I was standing for my prodigal husband for a couple of months until Christmas day when he broke his promise to take our children and me out as a family but then spent it with the OW. I lost hope, seeing my children’s hearts broken. I gave up standing and seeing no sign of chances of restoration, I decided to let go, move on with my children. But God had other plans. It was at my lowest point God stepped in to save me. (2 Corinthians 13:9). He contacted me and told me he wanted to come back home; how sorry he was and how he still loved us. PTL! I thought I was dreaming and yesterday he came home and spent the night with us. I know this is a big step forward for my marriage and though he’s not completely back, I trust he will keep his word this time and come back very soon in God’s timing. (Jeremiah 29:11).”  (Papua New Guinea) (posted 1/23/2017)

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

For those of you standing… Stand, fast, pray, believe and trust God to work it all out!”  (California) (posted 12/27/2016)
“After being divorced for a time, my suddenly happened. My wife came home one night and let me know God had shown her that she needed to come back home. A few days later we moved all of her stuff back in and barely a month later we got remarried. God is so good and faithful to all of His promises. Don’t ever give up. With the things that happened, there was no doubt that this was an act of God. Don’t look at your circumstances for with God all things are possible. I know standing is hard but it’s worth every second of it when God moves and your beloved comes home. Don’t lose hope and put all of your trust in Him. He will not let you down. It may not be when you want, but it will happen in you have faith. If you ask and believe it shall come to pass. I’m praying for all who are reading this.”  (Texas) (posted 12/27/2016)
“This Christmas will be the first with my prodigal after many years. He asked to come home earlier this year and God moved me to say yes. Every year I asked God to send someone as a Christmas gift from God. Since God sent nobody, I become lonely and discouraged. But God had a plan. He kept me pure for my prodigal’s return. It has not been an easy return, but God knows the desires of your heart and nothing is impossible for God.”  (Ohio) (posted 12/20/2016)
“My husband came home Thanksgiving Day. PTL. Although I thought when he came home standing would be easier, it’s teaching me how to let go and truly let God, to stop trying to change my husband.

“After several long agonizing months of being separated, my husband and I have reconciled. Thank You God! The month after he filed for divorce, I found RMM and the resources helped me with prayer, encouragement and fasting. The divorce was dismissed in the name of Jesus and I moved back in with my husband shortly afterwards. I still need the resources at RMM to keep our marriage strong. God has to be the center of our marriage. Praying for all marriages to obtain momentum seeking God’s glory. Amen.”  (Wisconsin) (posted 12/20/2016)
“After many, many years of a continued attitude of, ‘We are two smart, decent people, we can make this work,’ and many years of evidence to the contrary, God is giving us another chance to build our marriage on His foundation. It’s easy for us to fall back into an independent attitude, in spite of having years of proof that that doesn’t work. Our college-age children are living with us, granting us a little more time to model for them a God-centered marriage. Sadly, we have been poor examples most of their lives. Praise God for second chances. I’m still praying that God will keep us focused on Him, and that we won’t become lazy or self-absorbed. It’s a struggle every day, but God is faithful. There is such peace and joy when we obey God, repent of sins, and forgive each other.”  (Canada) (posted 12/13/2016)
“We are finally a complete family after the enemy tried to tear my family apart. God has revealed so much about the OW and other people who were colluding with her. God has promised to make everything anew. I have forgiven all of them and want to work on my marriage. My husband has not said sorry yet but his actions are speaking louder than words. Praying for every hurting family.”  (United Kingdom) (posted 12/13/2016)
“I want to thank God for all that He has done in my life. My husband made a decision to come back home after several months. I feel as if the fight is harder now that he is home than when he was gone. He still holds on to memories of the OW. My husband says he is here for the kids. The devil is a liar and I will continue to pray and be consistent in prayer, fasting and the Word. These few days have been beyond hard for me, but I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. As I have asked Him to search my heart, I have seen what I still need to pray for myself. I want to be how the Lord has called me to be. I want to live how the Lord has called me to live. No weapon formed against me shall ever prosper. My husband and I are in a process that hurts, but in due time we will experience joy. Praise be to my King, Jesus. For all things work for good to those who love Him. Praying for all the marriages in the world.”  (Washington) (posted 12/13/2016)
“Our God is an awesome God! I have been standing and fighting for my marriage for several months. My husband said he was leaving me and our children to go with an OW and her kids. I was in shock. He wanted to sell the house and just leave everything we had built together. I knew in my heart it wasn’t over and felt the urge to fight for my marriage. I found God; my strength came from Him and His Word. I started spiritual warfare and constantly praying, every chance I got. The last few weeks my husband started to get closer and spend more time with us. We spent Thanksgiving together and he has finally ended it with the other women. He has asked for my forgiveness and promised to make our marriage work. We are on the road to restoration and I give God all the glory for it. He walks with us and gives us the strength we need. I stand for all spouses out there who are hurting, Please don’t give up! God our Father can do the impossible!”  (Texas) (posted 12/13/2016)
“PTL! My husband is on his way home. My stand wasn’t as long as some but long enough. I wouldn’t have made it without this site encouraging me daily. Almost everything I went through the day before was in the email the next day. I know we have a long road ahead. I can’t wait to sit in church with him Sunday. What God wanted me to learn was patience. Psalm 37:7 – Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.”  (North Carolina) (posted 12/5/2016)
“Thank You Jesus. My prodigal husband has returned home after a long wait of not hearing or talking to him since he left. I prayed and read the stories from Rejoice Marriage Ministries week after week. It wasn’t easy but I kept believing. Never give up, the Lord will answer your prayers.”  (Nevada) (posted 12/5/2016)
“Praise God! Thanks to our Father that He does make promises in His Word and we can trust Him. I have been separated for several years. My husband left from the Thanksgiving table and said he could not do it any longer. There was an OW and then a child. I was crushed and did not know what to do. I prayed to God for answers and to teach me how to pray. God put me in a new church and He gave me RMM. Last month, after many years of praying for answers, I asked God to give me a radical sign if marriage restoration was His desire. I sent a donation to RMM on top of my tithe; told God I trusted him. The next day I saw nine Covenant Transport trucks. Then a call from my husband that it was over with the OW. Fast forward to this Thanksgiving and my husband was sitting next to me at the Thanksgiving table with all who were there when he walked out. I got to thank and praise God for him and those who have been with me. Keep praying and trusting for complete restoration. God is amazing! God is working! Believe!”  (Pennsylvania) (posted 12/5/2016)
“God is good all the time! God has truly blessed me and my family in so many ways. My husband and I reached a falling out a few months ago. Her started getting depression and ended up starting a relationship with another woman all while still living under the same roof. I started standing with the help of a new friend who guided me to this site. My journey hasn’t been long, but it has been tough. My husband is not with the OW and he wants to be with me. Our journey has just begun getting our life back in order. None of this would have happened without the Lord. Remember, the enemy is always near so keep fighting and standing, no matter how long or short your marriage restoration is. Keep fighting, keep believing, and keep your faith. This journey has brought me closer to the Lord and has made me stronger. Praise the Lord and keep fighting!”  (Wisconsin) (posted 12/5/2016)
“Praise to God our Heavenly Father. The journey has been long and there were times I wanted to give up but glory to God who comforted me, gave me signs and strengthened me. After being separated for months with false starts and a period of no communication where things looked hopeless, my beloved suddenly had a change of heart. Never give up standers. Pray, fast and truly let go and give it all to God. One Sunday the pastor asked a question – if God doesn’t answer your prayer will you still have faith in Him and follow Him? The moment I decided that, regardless, I will trust that God has the best for me and to follow Him forever, He moved in my marriage. My husband couldn’t even explain his change of heart but I knew it was the Lord. He is a changed man. Nothing is impossible with God. Show unconditional love and remember who your real enemy is. God is on the throne, He is in control. God does restore!”  (Australia) (posted 12/5/2016)
“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)
