Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 1 John 4:7
“The encouragement I have received from this ministry has really put a fire in my heart to pray and stand for my marriage to be restored. Thank the Lord, my husband’s heart is softening toward me. He spent Thanksgiving with us, he invited my daughter and I to lunch, and just showed up at the house. He also confirmed that he will come on Christmas Day! Praise the Lord, God is moving on the other side of the mountain. I was the one who was in pride, anger and resentment and filed for divorce. But no matter how many times we both tried to finalize the divorce it just wouldn’t work. And it won’t work!! What God put together may no man separate. (Matthew 19:6) A cord of three strands is not easily broken. (Ecclesiastes 4:12) Keep the faith fellow standers! When you have done everything to stand, continue to stand! Cry out to the Lord and He will save you. He will save your spouse and He will save your marriage.” (California)
“So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.” Matthew 19:6
“I’m praising and thanking the Lord that my husband goes to church with me every Sunday. He’s not a believer (yet), but I’m living by faith and thanking God in advance for answering my prayers for my husband’s salvation. My miracle is coming! I know how hard it is to keep praying and not see results. But I want to encourage you, don’t give up! God hears your prayers. He cares about you and your pain. I know it’s hard, but God commands us to love our enemies and pray for those who mistreat us. How else will our beloved spouse experience the love and mercy of God if not through us? I encourage you to keep praying for your beloved spouse and keep trusting in God’s plan and His perfect timing. Jesus said, ‘If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.’ Matthew 21:22.” (Florida)
“My husband and I have been apart for many years. I was in an adulterous remarriage for a few years after leaving and divorcing my covenant husband. BUT GOD got me out of my adultery and for the last several years I’ve been standing for my one-flesh husband ever since. My husband dated a few women the first years, but he never remarried. The Lord is gradually restoring my covenant marriage step by step. God has taught me to be patient while He works to heal my husband’s broken heart. God has done AMAZING things in his heart. My husband has been allowing me to be with him and our daughters and grandkids at our house the last couple of years for holidays and birthdays. I hadn’t been in our home with my husband and our daughters for Christmas for many years.” (Oklahoma)
“And we know that for those who love God, all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 (BSB). My husband left home last year, but God had already been working with me earlier when I learned that there was another woman in my husband’s life. That was a very painful day, but today, just like Job said, “I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, But now my eye sees You. Job 42: 5. It was necessary for the Lord to pass me through the fire to meet Him in intimacy. Although my husband is a prodigal and has not returned home, he has started to take steps closer to home. I praise and bless my Savior because He rescued me from a deep pit and gave me freedom. Today I live in peace, filled with the love of God in my heart. For me, the stories of Charlyne and Bob are water in the desert.” (Colombia)
“Christmas Eve I unexpectedly had to make the decision to have my pet put to sleep that morning. I was heartbroken. They have been with me over my long stand and more so during lockdown. Once I got home, I broke down completely. On top of the loss of my pet, I realized I would have to face this grief without my beloved. Through my tears I cried out to God to help me with the pain, to comfort me somehow with His Holy Spirit. There was a knock at the door within five minutes. A friend from church stood there with some yellow roses. She said God spoke to her in the supermarket and said to bring me some flowers. She had no idea of my circumstances. I shared my pain with her, and we praised the Lord – that He cares so much about the details of our lives and sees our pain, heartache, and our tears. He hears our prayers. I thank God for my friend’s obedience to the Holy Spirit. It has strengthened both our faiths.” (United Kingdom)
“I have been separated from my husband for many years and throughout the years I’ve had little victories. This year my victories were bigger. Since October my husband has stayed the night a couple of times. Currently he is living with family since his separation from the OW. Praise the Lord! He is definitely not in a good spiritual state. Even though he sleeps over, he isn’t always very loving. But just the fact that he sleeps over and sleeps in my bed is a major promise from God that He is working on him coming home. I am hopeful that one day he will just stay and never leave again.” (Louisiana)
“Our marriage wasn’t perfect, no marriage is. I wasn’t aware that our marriage was a threat in the spiritual realm to our adversary the devil. I became aware while separated from my husband who has filed for divorce. We both have faults. It took me a while to understand what true repentance was, no excuses as to the why, just a heartfelt sorrow and repentance to our Savior, Jesus Christ. It will take hubby some time as well to get to a place of true surrender. I cannot say it doesn’t hurt, but I do know, you can get through each phase of this journey when you trust the Lord every day with all your heart, mind, and soul. Romans 5:3-5.” (Pennsylvania)
Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. Romans 5:3-5
