After the Prodigal Returns/Standing After the Prodigal Returns:
I love hearing from standers who have been restored. Thank you ladies
Thanks, Paige! We are thrilled that it spoke to you.
My husband has had insecurities for years . Had a mental break down about 11 yrs ago and another one about 5 years ago . He never used to cause me if things . He knows the Bible and he uses Facebook to preach . He has shut everyone out including friends and church family . But recently 3 mo quit his job and moved to another state to take another job and quit talking to me with no warning . Feb he text me he wanted a divorce. He has now after 3 mo quit that job he’s now moving to California near his adult daughters. Who he accuses me of keeping him from which is a lie . He also accuses me of keeping him from god wants him too do. But he quit church and his men’s groups . He’s also telling people I’m. Crazy and that I had an affair . I believe it’s the guilt of abandoning me . I’m still standing even though I hurt so bad this is someone I’ve known for 30 yrs and married 19 . Restoration has been my word except I hurt from what he’s doing a d what he’s saying about me and he post scripture on Facebook to lots of people he doesn’t even know
We are saddened to hear of the hurt you are facing because of your husband’s actions. We are praying the Lord heals the rejection and wounds you have from his actions.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. Isaiah 43:2
This podcast is so much what I needed to hear right now, thank you. I thank the Lord for Rejoice Marriage Ministries. Love and God bless xx
Praise the Lord! We love hearing how God sent you the exact message you needed at just the right time. We are praying for your marriage.
Thank you for sharing so honestly the process between reconciliation and restoration. I found it very encouraging and of course just what I needed to hear right now! Thank you for your ministry and the endless blessings it brings!
Most helpful to educate us Standers to know what to look for in eventual contact from the spouse; to know the Lord will rebuild the relationship first, by having us be a friend and confidante, to wait on the Lord only, and not try to manipulate and ‘help’ the Lord, not bring up the past, and follow the Lord’s leading during the reconciliation process before restoration.
I have listened to this, so far, 4 times.
Thanks for sharing this, Janice. We are glad the Lord is using this episode to encourage you.
Thank you ladies for the valuable insight and wisdom, and for your transparency. It helps me to discern where I am in this process (reconciliation) and eliminates the frustration I was experiencing because I was prematurely expecting too much (full restoration) before its time. Whew…
This was a great podcast! I love Deeann & her testimony. I can relate to it on so many levels. It was encouraging to hear her say that her husband would say hurtful things, but she was still able to look to God for strength! I am trying to be a friend to my husband, but he is rejecting me & my efforts. Thank you RMM for another great podcast!
as I tell people we are on a different path. After not seeing him for 10 years and then meeting him at our son’s wedding I felt love and forgiveness. I have found it is a hard and long process. We have not begun that process yet of being friends. I have learned that with my psychology background not everyone wants to hear advice. I have learned not to give advice. at this time I can only email him a joke that I heard that day. yes it is a long and hard process. I pray that it would be suddenly but I realize I want to take it slow and get to know him and heal with him. Please pray for me.
Do you have a group specifically for those undergoing marriage restoration?
This past weekend, my husband(has been out of the home for 3 1/2 years) took me out on our boat on Lake Superior for a beautiful day along with a lovely dinner for my birthday. That alone is a praise report. But then, he confided in me. He told me he doesn’t see me as an enemy anymore, but rather as one of his good friends. The enemy attacked me with doubt and insecurity all night after that. I couldn’t get past the statement that I had been one of his enemies. I was stuck on that word. But I realized the next day how God has been working on my husband’s heart. And that this is praise worthy. And then this podcast confirmed it!
