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?

I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.  Psalm 27:13-14

“If anyone has any doubt that God can and will redeem a marriage, I am telling you now, you’re wasting your time and energy on that doubt. I won’t spend a lot of time on details, but I will tell you my marriage has seen every stronghold, deception, hurt, or offense you can think of. IV drug addiction, habitual cheating, long-term jail sentences, rehab stays, and hospitalizations, both of us. We have lost a child. We have publicly humiliated each other. There were lies, hurts, offenses, mental, physical, and verbal abuse. Years of misery and hanging on desperately to a promise God made. Our toxic marriage was our idol. We wanted it more than God. Twelve days before a final divorce, the Spirit prompted us, in separate locations, to pray for His will over our own. It was easy because we were no longer each other’s idol. God kept His promise. Big time! Stand.” (Louisiana)

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”  Mark 10:27

“My husband is an in-home prodigal. We have spent most days of the past year and a half of our separation not speaking much, just living as roommates. I pray that God continues to soften his heart toward me and renew his love for me. Recently, I got in a car accident and shared it with my husband without putting any expectations on him to be there. But he showed up as my hero, waited with me for hours for the police to come, and we got to share a few laughs and have conversation. While restoration did not come up in conversation, I am praising God that I still have a husband who cares for me and protects me. I believe God can create any situation He chooses to continue softening my husband’s heart towards me. PTL.” (Georgia)

“In the years since my husband was arrested for an offense, I have seen God’s hand in every aspect of our lives. My husband has repented and turned to God. God has never left a single need unmet, and instead, pours out His blessings with abundance. This road is long and the journey is hard, but I know that my Savior will carry us through.” (Utah)

“I thank God for keeping me through this journey! I’ve been separated for years. I asked God to bring him home from the far away land. I even asked God if I should continue to stand or walk away. He sent someone to keep me encouraged. The one thing I’m confident in is God is using my walk to show others that, even when you’re going through it, you can still have joy. God is my all and all . Remember Psalm 23. The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want. He will do all He said. We just have to wait and be still. God has us. Please keep standing and praying. My husband called the other day when it was very cold and snowing, asking if I needed a ride to work, which was a huge blessing. God did that. It’s the little things like this that let us know God is working. Stay encouraged.” (Pennsylvania)

“I’ve been with my spouse many years and we have been dealing with alcohol addiction, adultery, and control. We have separated many times. I knew of God but never had a relationship with him until I surrendered and gave my life to Him. But I was a lukewarm Christian. I felt betrayed by my husband and blamed him for all our problems. I threw him out and I cried out to God. He called me to restoration and I began to battle for my marriage. God restored us and brought him home. I went back to old patterns. I threw him out again several months ago. My heart was hardened and I wanted a divorce. God said no, and He delivered me and set me free from the strongholds of my mind and soul wounds. I am praying for my husband’s soul and restoration of our marriage and family. I put my faith and trust in God to fix what we wrecked. God is moving and He will stand by His promises. I can’t believe what God is doing in my life. I know my husband will come home.” (Canada)

“A few years ago, my husband expressed his unhappiness in our marriage and unwillingness to work on us. He moved out and now seems to be living a ‘great’ life. During these years, I often asked God why life seems so easy for him while I’ve been brokenhearted. God soon revealed to me that it’s all a mask of the enemy. My faith in Christ has become so strong that most times I now turn a blind eye to the things I see in the physical because I know what God had shown me about my marital promise in the spiritual. The Lord promises to create in us a clean heart and renew a right spirit. I know that in the perfect timing He will remove the veil covering my husband’s eyes. Because there is no way the devil can have the victory. The battle has already been won through Jesus Christ. I encourage you to fix your eyes on the Father. Don’t focus on what the devil ‘shows’ you.” (Trinidad & Tobago)

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.  Psalm 51:10

God bless,

Praising God for the wonderful testimonies and praying in agreement for breakthroughs!

Before I call, before I ever cry
You answer me from where the thunder hides
I can’t outrun, this heart I’m tethered to
When every step, I collide with you
