"The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy." Psalm 126:3


“I am divorced and after months of separation I prayed for a sign that God is working on the other side of the mountain. The very next day I was able to eat dinner with my beloved and my children. It was the first time we have all sat down for dinner together since this started. My beloved was not very talkative but I thank God that He softened her enough to even be there. The kids loved it and we had a wonderful time. Praise Jesus! He is always working, even though I don't always see it.”  (Alabama) 


“A song for God: ‘God is so good, God is so good, God is so good bless His Holy Name. He has done great things for me, He has done great things for me, He has done great things bless His Holy Name. Praise the Lord, oh my soul, and all that is within me, bless His Holy Name.’ God spoke to this lady's heart and made it so my two little ones before and aftercare monthly payment is three times less than it was supposed to be. I thought I was going to receive my daughter's university bill with the same balance as last semester. I received it with a credit! These are the things that reaffirm to me that God has my back and He is working on my spouse despite the circumstances. There is no one like our God.”  (Louisiana)


"When I started standing I did it so God would change my prodigal. A few months on, I realized that I am the one who needed changing. My relationship with God is stronger than it has ever been and most of all I have learned to love my husband more than I ever did. Recently I have begun to see a change in my prodigal, a softening of his heart. This ministry is heaven sent." (United Kingdom)


“I have been most encouraged to read in Restored Marriages of a couple remarried after nine years of separation and divorce. It has re-affirmed my resolve that no matter how I'm feeling, no matter what my spouse does, says or does not say, I am and will be living within the covenant of our marriage. To God be the glory, great things He has done. The ransomed of the Lord will return... Isaiah 51:11.”  (England)


“so is my wordthat goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”   Isaiah 55:11 


"Praise God for restoration. I've been praying and fasting for months for my marriage to be restored. God told me to 'Be still and know that I am God.' I stood firm on God's Word and said I wasn't giving up. I began to see things turn around. My spouse never mentioned restoration, but actions speak louder than words. We're now going to church and serving God together as a family. I'm still praying and fasting. I know God has great things in store for our family." (Virginia)


 “PTL! I thought the hardest thing I would face this weekend was my daughter’s sleepover at my spouse's. I said Lord I have forgiven him and love him unconditionally. As I opened the mail after they left I had received two CDs from RMM.  I listened to them and little did I know God was preparing me for what I would find out about my spouse and the OW. Thank You Lord for preparing me. I will continue to stand.”  (Florida)


“Praising God Almighty, my husband came home on New Year's Day! What an awesome way to start off 2014. All the testimonies I have read can never compare to actually living it. He said things that were what I was waiting to hear but the most incredible thing he said was, ‘I love you and I always have.’ I truly never thought he would say that until later into our reconciliation... but God. There were so many great moments but another one was when he thanked me for standing! Our three children are overjoyed and getting to see what a mighty God we serve. For you standers out there, stay strong, He is faithful and He will do it! All I keep thinking about is Ephesians 3:20. Don't be discouraged, stand strong to see firsthand what a mighty God we serve”  (New Jersey)


“I need to give my testimony of what my Heavenly Father has done. My husband walked away suddenly and I didn’t know what to do. BUT GOD! He drew me near Him. I understood I was facing a test but also that I was under attack. Things got bad, BUT GOD! The God who provides has me under His wings; His faithfulness has provided for my family and me and I know that He is in control. I was close to giving up but the Lord said no! So I am going to be obedient and wait patiently. I believe in His promises. He left suddenly and God will bring him back suddenly. Praise the Lord! Give Him glory always!”  (North Carolina)


"Praise the Lord, my husband has come home 'suddenly'! Thank you so much for proclaiming that God heals hurting marriages. I learned to forgive my husband for everything, love him unconditionally, and stand for my marriage boldly proclaiming the word of God - my husband came home. We have been praying together every night. Thanks to your books I knew what to expect and I'm still standing for him to be saved and our marriage completely healed. I will continue to pray for hurting marriages and give my testimony to other couples in crisis." (Maryland)


“I had begun divorce proceedings against my husband. My heart had been hardened. But God! My husband, even though still involved with the OW, made it clear to me that he did not want a divorce. He spends holidays and weekends with me and our children. I see God working in him slowly. I wait on His promises. We WILL have our marriage fully restored. The devil is a LIAR and keeps lying to my husband. It’s at the crucial important times that I see God at work. He is faithful and waiting for His perfect timing. I’m learning to zip my lips and love unconditionally through the heartache. PTL.” (South Africa)


"My husband filed for divorce and left me. It seemed impossible but God never quit working behind the scenes. Just before the divorce was final, my husband confessed and asked to come home. God is healing our family. Thank You, Jesus." (Kansas)


"I got home from work and my in-laws were pulling up to my house. I haven't seen or heard from them in years! They were happy to see me and I was happy to see them. I know they will give a good report to my spouse about seeing me. I couldn't stop smiling the entire time! Praise God for working on them and my spouse on the other side of the mountain!" (Indiana)


“Because of some unforeseen events, I went to Watch Night service at a church I had visited only once before. The theme was, ‘2014 - The Year of Restoration,’ and the verse was Joel 2:25. In the middle of the message, the pastor turned to me, called my name and said, ‘God said that He will restore your marriage.’ I talked with the pastor later and he told me how God had put that on his heart even before he left his home that evening and how he was ‘surprised’ to see me walk in that night considering I had been there only one time before. He said that God clearly spoke to him and told him to pronounce that at that moment. Later, I got some upsetting information, however, I still have to BELIEVE and hold on to God's promise. It isn't easy and sometimes I get discouraged. However I know that God is not a liar and it will come to pass in its appointed time. Remember, we walk by faith and not by sight. Keep praying, keep believing and keep trusting Him alone.”  (Georgia)


“My husband came home yesterday. His heart is still hardened but I will continuously pray for God to soften it. I will continuously pray for our marriage. I see God has been answering my prayers. Taking one step at a time. Through it all I feel a peace I have never felt before. Thank You Lord. Thank you Rejoice Ministries for being a blessing to me and my husband !”  (Maryland)  


"I recently had to attend a big event in Nevada because of my work. I had very limited finances. I had asked my aunt to attend event with me. Before I left home, I had prayed and asked the Lord to provide on this three day trip. God is so good, I only had to pay less than $100. Praise the Lord. We were also blessed with free tickets to a concert and we sat up front. I thank the Lord. I did not think I could ever enjoy my life again." (California)


"My prodigal and I have been texting lately. I told him that I baked cookies for him. He invited me up, and we had a relaxing night watching television with small talk. Bob's Father's Day books were on the coffee table in plain sight, although nothing was said about them. My mountains are moving. Thank You, Jesus." (Maryland)


“After many months my husband came home. In my heart I knew God would prevail. I stood on His Word and remembered the scripture of forgiving others so that He may also forgive me. The Lord blessed me and my family and has brought us closer to Him. Our marriage is still not perfectly restored, but I know God is in control and He will work things out in his time. Miracles do happen when you put your faith in the Lord and live by His Word.”  (Texas)


"My husband and I accompanied our children to a new family therapist. When we got there, she was using the time to get to know us expressed how she feels that we needed to seek marriage counseling because she feels our marriage can be saved. I felt God was using the therapist to let my husband know of good signs in our marriage rather than the bad ones." (California)


“Glory to God, thank You Jesus. My marriage was restored but still having problems. After some months of separation my prodigal called me. I fasted and prayed for her. I have changed and am living with Holy Spirit. She came but she didn’t accept Christ as her savior. Satan is attacking me daily but I thank you for your devotionals.” (India)


"I woke up at 4:00 A.M. yesterday and could not get back to sleep so I began reading my Bible and praying. I needed comfort so I looked up one of my favorite scriptures and read Phillippians 4. I was thrilled when I read 'Charlyne Cares' that day and the same scripture was in it and then again in the guest devotional today. Thank You, Lord." (Arkansas)


“Amazing! God has been gently guiding me and answering my prayers. I feel my relationship with the Lord growing deeper and deeper. A few days ago in one of the devotionals, Charlyne made reference to Ezekiel 36:25-27. A scripture that I have read and prayed over my husband in the past. Last night as I was listening to my husband’s online DJ radio show, he used a sound track that quotes this verse. I thought I was hearing things because my husband is not a believer. The Lord will remove my husband’s heart of stone and give him a heart of flesh! Praise God for such a wonderful promise!”  (California)

“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.”  Ezekiel 36:26-27


"A few weeks ago I asked God send me a sign that my husband would call and I saw two Covenant Transport trucks! God is SO GOOD! I just praise Him! I will stand for life, no question about it!  (Louisiana) 


“My prodigal husband went on a trip for a weekend to see an old friend. He did not tell us who this old friend was and I did not ask. I put it in God's hands and prayed it was a male friend. I am sorry to say I doubted we would even hear from him while he was on the trip. But God….put us on his mind and he called to check on our kids. On his drive back, the Holy Spirit put me on His mind and he called me six times in that one day. The weather was bad where he was and I prayed the Lord got Him back safely.  The Lord answered my prayers and kept him safe. Thank You Lord for putting me on my spouse's mind and allowing me to be there when he needed me. Never give up on your spouse; they need the Lord and you.”  (Florida)


“PTL! My husband says he is coming home very soon. I continue to stand for the restoration of my marriage and most importantly for him to find Jesus. Although he is still living with the OW, the Lord has opened communication lines between us. He loves my daughter and me, through his words and actions. My suddenly is coming soon and I will soon be sharing on this page. Never give up on the Lord, He is an amazing and faithful God.” (Kenya)


“While standing for my marriage in prayer, I had difficulties having obstacles thrown at me discouraging me from my stand.PTL! Through prayer, the Lord fought for me and our child. My prodigal had always had contact with our child, even at short notice, and I respect him for that. He moved to a nearby city with the OW and I had papers served for mediation as he wanted more overnight contact. I cried out to the Lord as I did not need the pressure at a time when I was in the middle of writing exams and praying for restoration. Barely a week later. I received a letter that the case had been closed. We serve a God who protects and fights for families. Restoration is on its way. PTL!”  (United Kingdom)


“Last week my prodigal suddenly started to reach out to our family. He is living in adultery but has not pushed for divorce as he used to years ago. He prayed with us before bedtime and repented out loud in front of our child about being a poor example the past several years. He wants to come home, but says his job requires him to live in the area where he conveniently is living with the other person. I believe this must change in Jesus’ Name because a personal relationship with God comes first then responsibility to family and lastly to the job. God is a God of order and He will fix it! I have not heard from my beloved all week but will continue to praise God for a glimpse of His work in my husband. Thank You Lord!”  (Florida)  


"I love you, O LORD, my strength. The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold." Psalm 18:1-2


"This week I had a bill to pay and then I would have very little money left. I had given to God my tithe and knew that he wouldn't let me down. I cried out to God and then next day I received an amount of money that was over double my tithe. God is amazing and he never lets us down." (United Kingdom)


"My prayers and fasting have been answered. My husband and I have sought the Lord together for the healing of our marriage and family. Jesus has given me back my life, husband, children. I also received physical healing that I may bear another child." (Missouri)


“My first time standing I did not know that I was standing but I knew what being married meant for my mother by watching her taking on everything my father was throwing at her and never an outburst. I don't think she knew she was standing, I don't even know if she was praying for him through it all, but I know she knew she was married until death do us part. I truly believe that's what immediately took over the first time my husband left. I knew I was married until death do us part just as my mother had shown me without even realizing it. So, I fought the best I could until God showed me how it should really be done through Rejoice Marriage Ministries. Know that I am praying and fasting not just for my marriage, but for God to stop Satan once and for all from messing up our marriages. Enough is enough. We need a revival of marriages. We need the divorce rate to drop. We need all covenant married couples to stand firm as an army to pray and fast for a lasting victory. Amen.”  (New Orleans)


"Praise the Lord my husband returned home a few days ago. He has left the other woman who was pregnant." (North Carolina)


“PTL! As soon as I started trusting for restoration of my second marriage, I realized I was also a prodigal. Somehow God made it happen that I started reconnecting with my first husband as he also separated from his non-covenant marriage. The communication is great and I have had many signs. His family gave me a name that means ‘standing’ in our language. God is really changing me. Thank you for the teachings on zip the lips, trusting God and just praying. Yesterday we spoke about getting married again and my heart leapt for joy. I’m trusting God to save him so we can build a marriage on the solid rock of Jesus Christ. I’m not giving up and I have peace that I am in God’s will.”  (South Africa) 


"I was feeling very discouraged about my marriage and happened to look up to see a Covenant Transport truck for the very first time ever. It reminded me that God isn't done with my marriage and that He is in control. God is so great!"  (Arkansas) 


“God is working mightily in our lives. The Holy Spirit gave me the insight to fast for 40 days. As my fasting is progressing, I can see changes in my thought process and am able to hear His voice more clearly. God is greater and only He can and will heal our soul wounds. I can see little things in my husband that is God's way of telling me that He is changing him. I know for sure that my suddenly is just about to happen for God's glory. But even before my marriage is restored, I pray that God touches my husband's heart and gives him His salvation. We are more than a conqueror in God. Don't give up. God bless every stander and may all our ‘suddenlies’ happen very soon. Amen.”  (Indiana) 


"God is faithful. I cried out for His signs and wonders on my hopeless marriage situation. I saw my husband beginning to take care of his fishes something he ignored since our marriage crisis. God is turning my husband’s heart home again which He confirmed through His Word." (Singapore)


“I was diagnosed with cancer after my husband and I separated. My husband was not around but God never left my side! I finished my treatments a month before Christmas and was cleared from cancer. A new lump appeared on my neck and I got the devastating  news that the cancer had returned and was rapidly growing. My doctor was perplexed because I wasn't feeling any symptoms, so he sent me in for another x-ray. Later I was back in his office with him declaring, ‘This truly is an act of God! There’s nothing there!’ PTL! When my husband found out about the exciting news he emailed me and said he was happy to hear God had restored my health. Since then there have been a few different emails from him. Nothing deep but he's communicating with me! He's a God of miracles! Keep trusting!”  (Canada) 


"Yesterday when I got home from church I saw that my husband has started to move his belongings back into our home. Thank be to God that I never gave up standing and that He is bringing my husband home." (New York)


"We were living overseas when I discovered my husband's affair. The Lord has given me grace, mercy and love to walk alongside him. Then, he told me he was filing for divorce. I've been so sad at our holiday celebrations, wondering if they'd be our last as a family. Suddenly, everything has changed. My husband's been kind, engaging, and fun again. The kids noticed it first. He's hugged me and thanked me for Christmas shopping, told me he loves me, and held my hand. Tonight, he wore his wedding band! Our kids and I are thrilled. God's promises are faithful and true." (Joshua 23:14) (Indiana)


"My husband called and wished me Merry Christmas for the first time in all the years we've been separated. What a wonderful Christmas present. Thank You, Lord." (Florida)

"After a few false starts I can say my husband is home. The situation looked impossible, but God does answers prayer in His perfect timing. Thank You Jesus." (South Africa)


“‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.”  Mark 10:7-9 


“I want to give God all glory and honor foremost for allowing for me to be here to see another day and to be STANDING. I just wanted to write and tell of God’s goodness and His grace. Several months ago if you would have asked me if there was light at the end of the tunnel, I would have said with hesitation, yes, I think. But with all that I have been going through while standing, I can now say YES! and speak it BOLDLY. I know that God is good and His Word is true. I thank God now for this season in my life and say that if it wasn’t for this period of separation and hard trials in my life, I truly believe I would not be where I am in Christ now. To God be the glory! Still standing! Be encouraged standers and realize you are STANDING not lying in defeat! That is something to shout about!”  (Texas) 


“I asked God to let me see a Covenant Transport truck on my lunch hour last week. I wanted confirmation like others have had. I was desperate for a sign. I told God that if I saw one while I was driving around, then I knew He was really working on my marriage. I looked for a truck everywhere I drove. I saw nothing. I was so disappointed and thought ‘Yeah, that's what I figured.’ I hadn't thought much about it since then and was sitting at my desk today and glanced out the window. At the very moment I looked up, a Covenant Transport truck was driving by. I'm not in the same busy town I was last week, but at the very moment I looked out the window, it was there! I thanked God and was filled with amazement and then felt ashamed for questioning God and putting a time frame on His plan. I felt Him say to me ‘Don't tell Me when you expect something, wait on My time.’ God didn't forget me. He felt so real to me at that moment and He knew that is what I needed.”  (Kentucky) 


"God is right on time! I am amazed that since my job is out of commission for a while, that just in time I have been blessed with another source of income! This in turn also helps my employer who can take a deep breath and worry about others that really need their checks now. I am so grateful to the Lord for this, and I know that when I do return to work that I will be able to work less, and spend more time with our son."  (Florida)


“I am in awe of what God has done for my family in this past few weeks. Not only did my precious husband come home suddenly, before Thanksgiving, but as of yesterday our divorce was canceled! God totally spoke through my husband on a phone conference we had with the judge. When asked if we were in process of reconciliation- my husband said yes! I was led by the Holy Spirit to just keep quiet, pray and let my husband do all the talking! Today I received a text from a friend who said she had a vision of my unsaved husband playing guitar in church. How awesome is our God! I know I will be standing forever and this journey is far from over- but ‘Nothing is impossible with God!’ Throughout my stand I have and will continue to claim that and Luke 1:45 every single day! And yes, to the world my marriage was dead and buried... but God! I pray every day God continues to work in me as much or more as He works in my husband. PTL and thanks RMM.”  (Minnesota) 


"My husband and I are separated. I have been noticing a change in my spouse's attitude toward me. He's been spending more time talking to me and helping out doing things around the house. I am praising God in advance for working everything out." (Pennsylvania)
