Saturday Testimonies

Below are excerpts from a few of the testimonies we have received in the past week, each shared with the writer’s permission. These are not to tell you how to stand and what to do, but are given here to share how God moves when people are praying. Do you have a testimony to share to encourage others?

Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits — who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.  Psalm 103:1-5

“My wife and I had been together for several years. One day she came home and, to my complete surprise, packed a bag and left with no explanation. I prayed and begged God for answers and help. Every time I wanted to completely give up, I could hear Him placing it on my heart to wait. After some time, she returned. Not only that, but God also blessed us with a home, better finances, and a closer relationship than ever. I listened to your podcast every day and the hope I got was amazing.”  (Florida)

“Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.”  Jeremiah 32:17

“A Charlyne Cares Devotional was shared by Aaron, on June 17. I believe God moved Aaron and it was a sign for me. I’m standing for a prodigal husband whose name is Aaron. I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. This past weekend, I met my prodigal spouse for mini golf. He told me that he wanted nothing to do with me or marriage. He is going to move forward with divorce without my participation. I was angry and hurt. Each time I believe that we are making progress, the enemy turns up the heat. I know that God is calling me to stand and He has clearly told me to ‘WAIT.’ My husband is believing all the lies of the enemy and on a destructive path. I thank RMM for the resources they share. I believe there is hope for my marriage and that God is working in my husband. My prayer every day is that my husband’s heart turns back to God and that God continues His work in me.”  (Pennsylvania)

“My husband and I separated and later divorced. A few weeks after the divorce was finalized, he married the other woman. The heartbreak was terrible and I felt like I wouldn’t survive the pain. Although no restoration has happened, God has transformed my heart to walk in His steps by forgiving and loving no matter what. My stand is for Jesus Christ, and His honor. I wrestle daily with forgiveness, but choose to do so for God. My prayers are not only for my ex-husband but for his new wife too. I pray for their salvation daily and choose to live a life of singleness. Whether restoration happens or not, I will honor the Lord. This isn’t anything I can take credit for; it is the indwelling of the Holy Spirit! Isaiah 49:15-16 (NKJV)…. Yet I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; Your walls are continually before Me.”  (Texas)

“I have been standing in the gap for many years. My husband traveled for financial reasons and months later, he told me that he had realized that he did not miss me. Therefore, he no longer loved me. I was left in Peru alone with my two daughters. After several years of prayer and a new relationship with the Lord, my husband asked me to resume the marriage for the love of his daughters only, but we continued in different countries. It’s very difficult because there are broken ties. The bond disappeared and he constantly warns me that he can fall into temptation. Although there have been conversations about resuming the marriage, the distance has done its work. BUT I trust and rest in the Lord of the impossible to save my husband’s soul and bring him home to us in God’s time and way. I remain still, waiting for the Lord’s orders.”  (Peru)

“My husband and I had separated, and he left the home. I was not walking with God. I knew Him but didn’t have a relationship with God. It brought me to my knees when my marriage was ending. I prayed and ask God to have His will. Several months later I started to change, both myself and my husband. God restored our marriage.”  (California)

“My addiction cost me everything I love and hold dear to my heart. I lost my faith, then my wife of many years, my family, friends, clients, associates, my dream job, my home, and all temporal security. In all the exquisite, unbearable pain and sorrow I have been through this past year, my dear Savior Jesus Christ and loving Heavenly Father have carried me. They are my Rock and my Salvation. I don’t know what my future holds but I do know I can and am putting my complete trust in the Lord for hope, strength. and guidance to follow no matter where He leads me, using Proverbs 3:5-7 and Isaiah 1:18 to encourage me. I am now closer to Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father than I have been at any time in my life and realize what is required of me to maintain that closeness, that relationship. Though I have lost so much, through the Lord’s tender grace and mercy, I have returned.”  (Texas)

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil.  Proverbs 3:5-7

God bless,
