Wonderfully Restored Marriage Testimony

In end of year 2004, I wrote to you telling you that my husband asked for divorce and he doesn't want to have anything to do with me anymore. That time all that I felt was like the world has ended. First I don't understand why it had to happen to me until God brought you and some other people to me. That was when I knew God was speaking to me and telling me that He will restore my marriage again but I will have to follow His ways. Of course God's ways are difficult especially when the circumstances doesn't show that the marriage will work out again. God continued to remind me to put my focus on Him and His promise and NOT my circumstances.


Throughout the 1st year, it was very difficult, painful and full of tears, but GOD is really faithful. He was always there every time I called out to Him and His presence was so real. Most of my time was spent reading His Word and each time I can really feel God speaking to me through His Word and teaching me what I should do in each situation. During these times, God has changed me so much.


Throughout the 10 months after my husband told me that he will divorce me, he didn't speak to me at all. It was really difficult but I remember God asking me to just show love to him and expect nothing in return. That was the time God showed me the real meaning of LOVE. During that time all that I know is I'm relying on God's strength, because if I were to use my own strength I would have moved out from the house because it was just too painful.


In October 2005, my husband decided to move out from the house, but again God is so good because He prepared me for that time. God has given me the strength to the extent that I was helping my husband to pack his things and even say goodbye to him when he is leaving. I remember telling God that I've done everything that God has asked me to do and now I surrender my husband to Him.


In December 2005, my husband called me and asked me out, and that was the start of our marriage restoration which I'd never expected that it would happen so fast. OUR GOD IS TRULY AWESOME & A GOD OF MIRACLE if we choose to believe.


It has already been more than 2 years our marriage has been restored and recently my husband decided to start attending church again. PRAISE GOD!! HALLELUJAH!!


The above testimony has already been shortened because if I were to write about the miracles from God throughout the 1st year, it will be extremely long.


Here I would like to thank you for your encouragement each time when I wrote to you and I really appreciate your time taken to reply me.


May God continue to bless you, your family, and your ministry. Take care.  


Love in Christ,
