Testimony – God Restores a Broken Marriage

Last updated on:

One of the more frequent type of emails we have received over the years since we have been online is from married couples, where one of the spouses has left the other one for another partner. The one spouse who has been left behind then starts praying to God to bring their spouse back home.

The pain adultery causes in a marriage relationship is extreme and traumatic, as a broken heart is one of the worst kinds of pain you can go through. For those of you who have been on the receiving end of adultery, you know exactly what I am talking about. You feel like your whole world has been shattered and that you will never be able to trust your spouse again, even though you are asking God to bring your mate back to you as you cannot stand the pain of that broken heart.

For those of you who are still praying to the Lord for the restoration of your marriage, below is a powerful testimony we have just received from a woman by the name of Crystal. Crystal had what she thought was the perfect marriage when all of a sudden her husband tells her one day he wants out of the marriage, as he had been having an affair with a woman online.

As you will see when reviewing her testimony below, Crystal was determined she was not going to lose her good marriage over something like this, so she stormed the throne of God asking Him to move to bring her husband back. Here is her word-for-word testimony, and then I will point out a few key things she did to get God to move on this extreme situation.

My name is Crystal and I’m here to let you know that with man it may seem impossible……but with Almighty God…..NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE…

I made a promise to God and to myself that WHEN he restored my marriage, I would testify and tell the world….I would share EVERY single detail no matter how shameful and embarrassing it would be, in the hope and knowledge that I would someday be able to bring some kind of hope for a hurting wife or husband who would’ve been going through what I once was.

I’ll try to be as brief as possible but I really don’t want to leave any detail out….no matter how small, because it may be the very thing God wants to use to inspire and encourage a stander or prodigal spouse.

I don’t want to apportion blame too much here but suffice it to say we had some in-law issues which contributed greatly to our demise….but that is another story and I want to concentrate on how God showed up and showed off in the mist of my situation. Today is March 16th 2011…. My husband of 1 year and 5 months left me on November 30th, 2010… .BUT…. all thanks and all praise be to Almighty God, he is now back home and we are rebuilding a marriage that from all counts and to the naked eye in the natural realm was dead.

As far as I could see we were the perfect couple……went out together…….stayed home together……laughed, joked……..we were like two peas in a pod……of course we had our regular marital problems….no marriage is perfect……..in addition to the above we also….. argued and sometimes told each other some harsh words…….LIKE EVERY OTHER COUPLE……it isn’t right but it happens…..

In spite of all this , I believed he loved me just as much as I loved him……you could imagine my surprise and heart break when one day after a short disagreement……and I mean short….lasting no more that a few minutes…..my beloved husband packed his clothes and walked out of my life…….

All this happened on Nov 30th 2010…..I held off from calling him because I was still upset and I figured I didn’t do him any harm…..he was the one that stepped out in our marriage and on our marriage…..ours wasn’t a physical stepping as in outside sex….it was an on-going 5 month relationship on the internet, with someone he had been previously involved with.

The days went by and he didn’t call so on December 5th 2010….I called him…..he refused to take my calls so I texted him only to be told that he wasn’t interested in me and I should go on with my life….that I should never call or text him again……..that was like a dagger through my heart……I felt as though someone had literally ran a knife straight through my stomach and was twisting it repeatedly…..but that isn’t the worse yet…..

I persisted in calling him that same day and eventually he picked up the phone…he was as cold as ice……I felt frightened even listening to him……he told me….I NEVER LOVED YOU……I AM SORRY WE GOT MARRIED…..I FELT TRAPPED IN THIS MARRIAGE…..I DON’T LOVE YOU LIKE A MAN SHOULD LOVE A WOMAN…..THE FEELINGS I HAVE FOR YOU IS THAT OF A “GOOD” FRIEND……I DON’T WANT TO BE WITH YOU AND YOU SHOULD GET ON WITH YOUR LIFE…..I’M
NOT COMING BACK…….

I have never felt pain like I did then in my entire life……..it is amazing when you are down on luck how quickly you remember that GOD does exists.

I was a regular church goer and I tithed but I still didn’t have that personal relationship with God…..well God has a way of getting our attention in ways unimaginable….and he got mine.

I cried DAILY AND HOURLY……I felt all hope was gone….I mean how do you get someone to love you again when that person is saying I never loved you at all…..YOU CANT….BUT GOD CAN……

I had built my life around my husband and now he was gone……I felt like I lost the better part of me…..I couldn’t eat….I couldn’t eat ….I didn’t want to socialize and I forced myself to go to work…..but God had a plan…….even though all seemed lost……God was turning my situation around even as I was hurting…..what the devil meant for evil God was turning around for good.

I enlisted the help of three persons…….a Prophetess, an Apostle, and a church Pastor…..these were all spiritual people I knew……and strong men and women of God……I knew I wasn’t strong in my spirit and my faith was way less than even that of a mustard seed.

I still cried every day but I also engaged in some radical and spiritual warfare for my husband…..I spoke the word of God over my marriage EVERYDAY and I prayed hedges of thorns around my husband EVERYDAY…..I pleaded the blood of Jesus over him and claimed my marriage in the name of Jesus.

Remember I wasn’t rooted in God so my prayers wasn’t as flowing as other people but everyday I gain more and more strength and my faith began to soar…..I prayed that God would soften my husband’s heart and remind him of the love we once shared……I asked God to send Godly people in his life to speak to him even when I couldn’t and God heard me….

I think I either bought or borrowed every book on marriage…warfare….prayer…you name it ….every website I could think of…….. And I just wrapped my husband up and prayed what ever pray I could even verbatim from some of those same books…….I became like a one man army…..

At times the devil whispered in my ears and unbelief and doubt settled in….I would call my prayer warriors for encouragement and go to God crying and in a few hours would be right as rain and ready again to go up against the gates of hell for my boo. To make a long story short……Sunday January 16th 2011….I got a text from my husband….who accidently had AGAIN on the 14th January 2011…..told me he felt the same way and I should go on with my life.

He said he wanted to talk and wanted to know if he could come by the house…he wanted to know if I could forgive him for what he did and for us to try again at our
marriage…

I had released my husband and my marriage to God and I knew God was going to do something…. but I thought it would be perhaps a Hi hello…how are you….or perhaps a few weeks down the line he might drop in a call or something……….I had no idea that MY GOD was bringing my husband home that day….that instant…

He told me that after he spoke to me on Thursday….he went to God himself and talked to him and asked him to speak and show him what he should do……..he said from the time he said that everything just went crazy…..everything he saw reminded him of me….. when he went to sleep his dreams were constant replays of our life together….. he started thinking about stuff that happened before and after our marriage that were nothing short of miraculous…..

In short…..God was speaking to him all along but he was too proud to just walk back and admit that he was wrong but he wanted to so much….. He wanted to give our marriage a chance and he loved me and wanted to be with ME.

I give all the thanks and praise to God for what he did……it doesn’t matter what your situation looks like….it doesn’t matter how impossible and dead it seems……it doesn’t matter what your husband or wife is planning……..we plan but God is also planning and he works EVERYTHING out together for those that love the LORD..

DO NOT GIVE UP….THE DEVIL AND EVEN YOUR OWN MIND IS GOING TO TRY TO TELL YOU TO MOVE ON…LEAVE HIM/HER ALONE…HE/SHE DOESN’T WANT YOU…..THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO…..THERE IS NO ONE THAT CAN HELP YOU NOW…..DO NOT LISTEN……even in your tears….cry out to God….when you don’t know what to say…..just say JESUS….nothing more……tears is a language God understands and he is going to work it out…..

This isn’t every single detail of what happened there are parts missing…but my short journey has been nothing but incredible and miraculous…but I want you to know that with God ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE…

Be encouraged

Notice several key things Crystal did to get God to move on her behalf.

1.  The first thing she did was to fully surrender the entire matter into God’s hand. Notice she said she had faith less than the size of a mustard seed when she first started to approach the Lord for His help.

As we have showed you in our article titled, “Bible Verses on Faith,” the Bible tells us that faith the size of a mustard seed will move mountains. This means that you do not have to have large amounts of faith with the Lord to get the show going with Him. God will take whatever level of faith you are operating at with Him and then move to help you out with your current situation as long as you are directly seeking after His help and are willing to fully surrender the entire matter into His hands.

2.  The next thing she did right was to enlist the aid of three powerful prayer warriors to help her with her prayers to the Lord. This is what is called the prayer of agreement. We already have an article on how powerful of a strategy this is with the Lord. The title of this article is, “Prayer Secret #6 – The Prayer of Agreement.”

3.  Also notice she went into a very heavy seeking mode by searching out every good book she could find on marriage, prayer, and spiritual warfare. The Bible says to “seek” and then you will find what you are looking for. And this woman went into a very heavy seeking mode. I believe when God sees this kind of intense seeking activity, He is really moved, and sometimes that is what will get Him to move to answer the prayer.

4.  Another thing she did when she went on the offensive was to plead the blood of Jesus around the situation. If you have a spouse that has left you for another person, it would be our recommendation to plead the blood of Jesus around them, and then plead the blood of Jesus against any demons who are trying to get in the middle of this, along with pleading the blood of Jesus directly against the person they are having the affair with.

All in all, as you read her incredible testimony, the thing that stands out is her fierce determination that she was not going to let her marriage go, and that she would take a hold of God and keep praying to Him until He brought her husband back home to her.

We want to personally thank Crystal for allowing us to release her testimony on our site, as it will help show others that God can move to restore broken marriages, no matter how hopeless things may look in the natural.

  1. My wife has had an affair with 2 different men. One while we are separated. I’m trying to put trust in god that he’ll restore my marriage but it’s been difficult. I have people praying for me and I pray constantly but the devil is busy. Even when she says mean and hurtful things I pray. God has moved on some things I’ve prayed for. Just waiting on him. It’s in his hands

  2. This is similar to my situation. My husband had packed his stuff and moving it today. He claims he is battling demons and his career is more important then our marriage. I am standing for my marriage, it is hard especially when he says he wants a divorce and to go marry someone else. I don’t have any prayer warriors to pray with, he destroyed the relationships with my family. I don’t know what else to do anymore. Your testimony raised my spirits and gave me some hope. Thank you

    • Hi Shantelle,

      Cry out to God, stand on His promise that nothing shall come between the two of you! Begin thanking God for bringing your husband home! Begin blessing your husband with Yhe Word!

      Thanking Hod for your restored marriage! Hallelujah , Your soooo awesome Jesus! Thank You Father God and Holy Spirit!

      Begin singing and dancing to the Lord!

  3. Thank you for the miracle blessing story. I am also in a situation where my husband has decided to leave me but I believe and hope and trust in Him to see me through and it is my desire that my marriage be saved and restored. please I need prayers also. thank you…

    • My Husband walked out on my son and I when I was 8 months pregnant. I’ve been devastated ever since. The hardest thing I face is the reason why he did this. He blames me for him leaving and is now occasionally spending the night at his ex wife’s house saying he loved her and never loved me. I wonder if that’s true (which I know it’s not) then why did you even begin a relationship with me in the first place? I didn’t have to be dragged into this mess!
      This whole situation is very confusing. I need prayer for my husband to come home and for this other woman to leave my husband alone.
      She knows we just had a baby and yet tries to hurt our marriage. I hope you can see where my confusion is.

      Also FYI I prayed for every one who asked for prayer in this comment section. Just want y’all to know that.

      • God honors the covenant wife. That is the first wife your husband has married.

  4. Crystal, thank you for this encouragement! praise God for your restoration!
    My husband left me last Sunday & I don’t know who he is with or where he is staying. I pray every day, I have talked to my pastor & have asked for prayer from a few prayer warriors. I will bookmark this site so that I can pray for your marriages like Bryan…you are seeing God work in Your marriage too & that is amazing!
    Satan was defeated and he cannot have our marriages, our husband’s, our wives or our children! God is working in our lives, we are covered by the blood of the Lamb & our spouse are too! Please send an update on your marriages and receive the daily blessings he sends us!

  5. I am praying everyday 5 to 8 times a day for the Lord to restores my marriage with my husband, and nothing happened, it like God don’t want to answer my prayer, my husband is drifting away from me everyday and there is nothing I can do. I believe in the Lord and he is my all. but it seems as if he is not listening to me. I want me husband to come back home and love me the way he used 20 years ago. its like Satan is winning and I am losing. don’t know what to do. please lord save my marriage and lead my husband home to me and my children.
    I pray in Jesus Holy Name Amen

    • Hi Suzanne,

      Don’t worry . Have faith & pray. Nothing is impossible with God & you just need to trust it will be done for you.

      Remember Jesus never fails!!

    • Keep ur head up God still have it and his hands no matter how it my seem jus have faith nd believe nd God that it is already work out

  6. This is scary. My wife delivered the same news to me on almost the same date except in the year 2015. I have done a lot of what Crystal has done. I do not know any prayer warriors but I do enlist the prayer group from my church and have prayed day and night for her return. I too have promised God that if he restores then I want to use my marriage as an example to lead others. As of Christmas we have started slowly to talk and I pray to God to guide my conversation with her. Now we have a date to talk again in four days. I know God is moving on this matter, not necessarily on my time line, but toward positive results so far. I will continue to pray for my marriage as well as others. Thank you for sharing as I was feeling down today and came across this site in searching for more answers from Godly people.
    May God Bless
    Bryan

    • God can restore marriage, I can vouch for that. I did things that were wrong in my marriage, I will admit that. But my wife hit a “mid life” crisis and flew to Texas to see her x b/f from High School. She said a week with him in a hotel……
      The whole time she was gone I prayed, prayed w/o ceasing……God brought her to her knees, turned her around, stepped into OUR marriage and now we are STRONGER then ever. We attend church regularly and now that God is ruler of my home and my marriage we are unseparable.

      Hold your head up, pray w/o ceasing. If you need a prayer warrior PLEASE feel free to contact me

      • Hi Jim
        Thank you for your testimony, it is encouraging. I am from SA and have been standing since the beginning of this year, please keep me in your prayers, my husband is with someone now and has announced that they will be getting engaged this year, I am not sure what’s happening now. Please keep me in your prayers

      • Hello I wish that I could rejoice and I wish I could even say that I believe in who people say God is. My heart is broken and I feel that God has forsaken me. I wish sometimes that I would die because you see it was not so much my husband that broke my heart as much as God who did. His words are not alway true…he said seek and he shall find knock and the door will be open, he said all you have to do is have faith the size of a mustard seed…I have been praying for my husband for 16 years and the more I pray the worse he gets. Alcohol is now the love of his life. I prayed day night hourly, I called the prayer line sometimes continuously. I prayed and prayed and now I dont have the strength to pray anymore. Please some body help me. I have suffered the greatest broken heart …. i have been serving God for 37 years and now it seems like it is all just stories to give us hope.

        • I think it’s possible that the enemy has chosen you as a target because of your long service to God. Remember, alcoholism is a spirit of addiction. It’s not that your husband doesn’t want you. It’s that he is being taken hostage by the enemy. He is literally killing himself with an addiction and no addiction is logical.

      • Hi Jim. Please include my marriage in your prayer. I also need a prayer warrior like me. My husband left me 3 weeks ago and live with his mistress. But he keeps on coming back and visit her beloved daughter. It really breaks my heart everyday to see him crying and begging for me not to deprive him from his daughter. But all he wants was his daughter not me as his wife.

        Please include me in your prayers in your war room. I needed it badly because there are times Satan will defeat my faith. I became discouraged and hopeless. There are promise that God gave me about restorations. I just couldn’t help to be impatient.

      • Hi Jim,

        My name is Lyma and from Kenya. I need you to help me pray for my marriage that is on the rocks right now. I have been encouraged by your testimony. I broke up with my husband last year on the 19th of April and he chased me from our matrimonial home. It’s been one year and he has never talked to me not even sms or email but I still trust that God will restore my marriage. He remained with our three daughters and am not allowed to talk to them even on phone, he has only released them twice to come and see and this he only does when he feels like. My kids have been crying for me but the man’s heart is hardened and behaves like he feels nothing. Pray along with me and help me claim my marriage back in Jesus name. I believe that with God all things are possible, it doesn’t matter what people think or say. Our marriage is crowded with relatives and he seems to be paying much attention to them as he says his relatives do not want me back in his life. This has been my husband for 15 years and I don’t believe God planned for us to separate after 15 years of marriage.

  7. Hello Crystal,
    At this exact moment I have so much pain, my wife left me for someone else but everyday I pray to God for the restoration of my marriage, I know bad things happened in our lives. I am now fully devoted to God through all this I became a born again christian. I have faith and believe that God to will restore my marriage I’m daily constantly praying for my wifes return. I now see that without God we are nothing, please keep me in your prayers with Gods help I will also oneday testify about His glory. Amen

  8. it was nice to read that story, i myself am going through a bad time now,and hoping and praying with GODS help he can fix my marriage and help my wife no to give up on what we had, and our kids can and will have a mother and father together and the family,i do really miss them so much every day,and find it hard that every day my wife will find it hard to forgive me and will lose all interest and wont want me back,i so really want us to be a family and be more stronger and have GOD helping us in every day life.I HOPE AND PRAY AND BELIEVE IN GOD IS WORKING TO HELPING ME IN MY MARRIAGE. THANK YOU LORD GOD.

  9. I am really moved by Crystal’s testimony. I too am going through a separation form my husband for five years now. I do know that it is spiritual warfare in my marriage and I have totally surrendered my marriage to The Almighty Father Creator of Heaven and Earth. He is in total control now. My husband is the only man that I have ever loved and love with all my heart. I know that God Almighty has a plan for me and my family and I feel a joy within my heart. I have asked HIM to do with me what thou will. In Jesus Name. AMEN

  10. God is Good all the time and all the time God is good I’m going true the same my husband did also gone same time Found a sms on his phone send from him to the lady when I approach him he also said what Christal husband told her and I did what christal did the very same and its now a month that things become different we start talking he come hear a lot now I am so inspired by this message today I believe an I receive in the mighty name of Jesus what he did for Christal he can do for me I claim everything back that was taken from me in Jesus power full name there is non like u lord the song that sing Restore my life again I’m really amaze with this testimony I also said when my married been resore I want give my testimony to the world out there I want to serve God like never before no more pain no, more tears, no more depression Jesus is the way Amen

  11. Its so encouraging to know about Crystal, how God helped to bring her husband back, restore all the happiness what the enemy has taken away from her.Its such a touching testimony shared which helped each n every broken heart not to give up but to rely upon our God who is so merciful and compassionate, who can never see us cry. Brothers & sisters my advice to all the broken hearts not to wander ur minds to find someone else but to cling on to Our mighty God to fight against the battles.
    God Bless each and every person who is involved in encouraging n sharing. Thankyou.

  12. My wife of almost 30 years & 6 children has left & filed for divorce. We both are believers & I cannot give up on her or God. She harbors so many hard feelings toward me she says has over all the years of our marriage. There is no cheating, drinking, drugs the normal things people split over on either part. She says you are never home, you have abandoned me emotional. I have been the sole provider for our family all these years. I dearly love this woman with all my heart and have all these years. She lost her best friend to cancer last Nov. & has not been the same since. She now goes to there home 5 times a week & helps take care of his kids. She says there is no infidelity. She is telling me she is never coming back and that there has been to much water under the bridge between us and will not do any more on our marriage. Please pray for our marriage to be healed by & for God to get the glory.

  13. My Story Three years ago I married a man that I loved and wanted to share my life with didn’t know he would look at me difference and say the things to me that as a wife I never wanted to hear from my husband. He told me he cheated that he don’t love me the way I love him. Move on,never coming back, that hes trapped, hes miserable,he with me because he owes me that to be with me because I been there for him. I have tried number’s of time and prayed for God to take my life attempted suicide and God keep me. Sit here to today because of God mercy and grace. My faith wasn’t strong as it is today. I am a stronger woman today than I was when I first married my husband three years ago. I am praying that God touch my husband and changed hes life. I pray for him my marriage and myself that God heals us. I am a forgiving woman and I don’t hold grudges. I had to ask God to send Godly people in my life to help me through my pain and there been Ungodly people as well. If this help someone I am still going through it it hard I pray all day long for my husband my marriage and myself. Thanking God for keeping him our marriage and myself even were not living together still married helping me to pray for all above nothing that he is able.

  14. I too found this website when my husband left me back in December of 2013. I got recommended to try the restore your marriage website by Erin Thiele. It is a great biblically based tool for marriage restoration. But I feel God revealed to me something during my struggle. I hope it will help some of you. It’s not a very popular subject and makes people uncomfortable because it can turn your world upside down especially when there’s children involved. I was my ex’s 3rd wife. I never really thought much to that because its everywhere around us. Marriage, Divorce, Remarriage. As I started growing in Christ I started to realize the husband I was fighting for was not my husband. I feel in God’s eyes the first marriage is the covenant marriage. Now this was hard for me to grasp because I have two children with this man. But with God’s grace I became strong and I decided I’d rather do what God intended for me to do, not what I want to do. I was not meant to be someone’s third wife. I don’t know what the future holds for me relationship wise but I’m not really worried about it. God has made me so content with just him and my children and I know he will guide me as long as I seek Him. I hope this helps some of you. If it is a covenant marriage you’re fighting for don’t give up. It’s God’s will to restore your marriage and bring back sevenfold what the enemy stole but first you must realize it’s spiritual warfare and without God it’s impossible.

  15. i am Jane from Canada, i married to my lovely husband will live happily for three good years. December 22th 2012 will went out for shopping after doing all will have to will came back home not know that a lady will met at the shopping place exchange contact with my husband,three days after she called my husband, after my husband receive her call he surd ling change his behavior the next morning he take some of his wears and package them on his luggage he told me that his traveling with his director i ask him when will you come back there was no good answer on him so i kept my mount short because i have never experiences such character on him he went out and take a taxi i was expecting him to come back home the next day not know that he went and stay with a lady that exchange contact with him at shopping place he was there

  16. Reading this testimony gives me hope that one day, my husband through my prayers will be able to realized his love for me. The story is very similar to me., except that it took 5 years for my husband to leave me, saying that he’s not happy.. and denying that there is a 3rd party involve. Im lost and looking for answers,. I’m hurt that he left and how easy for him to just forget the dreams we have. I don’t know what he wants or what to do,. i love him so much. At some point I’m don’t know if I should let him go or fight for his love. I know I should fight, because just like Jesus, he never turn his back on those that doesn’t believe in him. Please help me pray, that my husband realized that he loves me and come back and restore our marriage.

  18. This will be my third update. Today was suppose to be my limited divorce hearing. When my husband left I had no income and have been unable to work for the past few years. I was lost didn’t know what to do so I was advised to file for a limited divorce. I made sure that meant I was not filing for and actual divorce. In the state I live in there is no such thing as a legal separation. You have to be separated for 1 year then you can file. A limited divorce sets up alimony or child support before the finale divorce for those that need it. We had a pendelite hearing in October all we did was set up temporary alimony. Today’s hearing would have been just like the final with testimony and such and the final alimony would have been set. Then in May my husband could file for the final because I will not. Well because the judge didn’t realize that it was only a limited divorce she wanted to go forward with the final. I was totally opposed to this so my lawyer requested a postponement. It was granted and it will not happen till October. This was good news for me as it gives more time for God to shake my husband up. I have been praying and praying both for me and my husband along with the marriage and I take this as a sign that he is working on this. I will not let Satan discourage me any longer I will keep praying and leave it all at Gods feet. I have always been a very inpatient person and sometimes my actions cause more issues. So I will be still and let God do his work. Please keep praying for me and that my marriage will be restored and that the bond that he seems to have with another women will be broken.

  19. Thank you for sharing your testimony, it gives me encouragement to know that a woman can fight alone for their marriage. Despite what the situation looks like, with God all thing are possible His love is amazing and this is why I won’t stop fighting for my marriage. How can I give up on my marriage, if God has never gives up on me. If God has never given up on me, why should I give up on my husband, on my marriage?How can I stop fighting for a marriage when I know that the victory has already been won because God has won the battle, only God can determine the beginning and the end of anything not me not my husband not our family or friends, only God has the power to determine anything. Our lord is clear in, His word that he hates divorce.
    I fight for my marriage because I believe in Gods word, I believe in his promises to prosper us not to harm us. For the devil is liar and what is done in evil God will turn it into good for his purpose. I believe that God will mend the deep wounds of my marriage and this is why I hold on because love cover a multitude of sins. In
    1 Corinthians 7:10-11 ESV To the married I give this charge (not I, but the Lord): the wife should not separate from her husband (but if she does, she should remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband), and the husband should not divorce his wife. I believe in this scripture that God will reconcile Jason and I.
    I love my husband deeply and I want better for our young family I want my children to know what a marriage is suppose to look like under Gods law.
    God can soften the hardest of heart and mend hearts which have been completely broken. But only if you allow him in, I struggle so much with letting go because I am so use to relaying on me to fix. But the only person who has the power to fix this is God.I might not see his hands move in the physical but I know he is moving on the spiritual. I believe with all my heart that God will heal my marriage and restore it with agape love, love that transcends beyond our understanding. Though my husbands heart is completely harden towards me due to the mere fact of the hurt I have caused him with my lack of disrespect and so much more. I hold on to the truth I hold on to the word of God on my marriage on my family.
    I praise God for the work He is doing in me, for he has called me to change to die of my old self and have him transform me to the wife and mother He wants me to be. I praise God for the husband and father my husband will become when he submits his life to Christ.

  21. Mixed Emotions
    When I first came across Crystals story I was so hopeful one because I was looking for signs that I should keep doing what I was doing and that’s my story so what better sign. I have been praying and praying and have a lot of people praying and its hard to keep my faith when it seems to get worse each day. Then I had a Christian tell me I am setting myself up for disappointment because we are not puppets we have our own mind and will to do what we want and it sounds like that is what my husband is doing so there is little hope the Lord can turn that around. So I ask how do you believe the what the scriptures say about marriage and nothing being to hard for God and moving the mountain. I’m so confused and lost as I head to an alimony hearing this coming Monday.

  22. Crystal story was a very inspirational to me. Her story was so close to mine in so many ways. My wife of almost 19 years left me and my three children. The things she said to me was so out of character and hurtful it was scary. She told me she hated me, faked it for years, hoped I find someone else, should have never married me, felt like a prisoner for the last 17 years, my heart dead to you, etc.

    I took Crystal advice I prayed for Godly people to get into my wife life, prayed for her heart to soften towards me, I prayed for the hedges of thorns to surround my wife and I, prayed for the restoration of my marriage. Sought out my Pastor for help, bought mustard seeds, sought out book on how to save my marriage etc.

    My wife would talk about coming home a few times, then the next day change her mind. She would call me and tell me about her day etc. She finally went to counseling, but stayed for 9 min. Said she loved me but was not in love with me and haven’t missed me since she left.

    Our relationship after that was very strained, no communication at all buy phone or email. Hardly ever talked when we say each other. I remember crying pleading to God to restore my marriage, asking for Jesus to wash his blood over my wife and I. Praying in Jesus name for my marriage and asking Jesus to take and save my marriage.

    This last week was the most brutal in our separation, my faith was being tested and I went out to buy some mustard seeds and put them in my kitchen window. The next morning called to ask to come home, pleading to work on our marriage, go to church with me, and be the wife she should have always been. I went and got a U-Haul and had her move back yesterday.

    Just know as soon as you ask God to fix and restore your marriage, he starts working on your spouse. It will take time and patience, something I didn’t have, but I learn through prayer and reading the bibles that anything is possible.

    The devil will plays trick on you, don’t fall for it trust in the God. Also trust in your spouse and give God time to work on their heart. It will take time, but with love and God nothing is impossible, trust your heart. Most importantly trust in God, he hates divorce. Pray for your spouse and repent for any sins you have done in your marriage.

    Matthew chapter 21:22 If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”

    Take it from me its true PTL and anything trough Christ is possible.

    David

  23. My husband left me in May. I have been praying and praying that God would send him home to me. I research scripture and have others praying for us and I look things up on the Internet and that is how I ended up here. As I read this testimony it was if I wrote it. Every little piece of this story is mine. I even sent it to my friends that thought I wrote it. The testimony has given me new hope and even more determination. I have been told that the lord will not heal my marriage because my husband is a non believer. How can that be true. God dislikes divorce and if I have faith which I do and I believe and I do then there is nothing God will not do to heal this marriage. What better testimony to my husband and my family and friends whom say there is no hope. I sometimes feel forsaken only because the divorce process has started only for alimony purposes, but as the hearing date for that approaches I feel like time is not on my side and I know that it is Satan talking to me. I know my husband is conflicted. He has a girlfriend and has since July. But he talks to me on and off. One minute he hate me and says leave me alone and I do but then he will turn around and contacts me just to chit chat that’s how I know God is speaking to him. I ask for signs and when I do I stumble on verse that gives me hope just like this has. Please Pray for me and Brian and our marriage. I know that this will be a powerful testament to my family and friends and all those who say its hopeless.

  24. I want to thank Crystal for her testimony! My husband and I have been seperated for 3 years do to his affairs. I have been wondering what I have been doing wrong, your tetimony help me to understand it, and now I know I have to put it in the lords hands and leave everything alone!

  25. Praise the lord,crystal.I have the same problem but I faith and believe God will do Mighty things. My husband of 2nhalf years left me immediately after my father’s death. My inlaws never liked me because I am not educated like their son so they persuaded him to either chose me or them. My dear husband had to made a choice n he chose his biological family.He packed all my belongings and gave me to go and never cm back. I believe God had purpose for ths to happen because I used to go to church but my faith was small.Now I have given my life to Jesus Christ and I believe our dear Lord is watching and saves us from any kind of Troubles if you just believe in Him.AMEN.
