Thank you, dear sisters, for investing in my life and my future testimony. This journey for me has been amazing. It has been as I am sure you felt when you completed it, the breath of fresh air that I have been trying to take out of these drowning waters I was in. During this course, I had a few mess-ups. BUT through God's grace, I know that He is still in control. Lastly but most importantly, my relationship with my Heavenly Husband has grown and it is like nothing I have felt before or in a long time.
I have unspeakable joy and I am happy. My days are not filled with hurt and constant ups and downs of emotions especially when my husband left again right as I started this course. I long for my Heavenly Husband. I want Him more. Oh, how I need Him more. If I have Him, I have everything I need. I want Him to be my First Love. Thank you for planting your seed to pour into my life that was "standing" still and stagnant. Standing for my marriage to now gaining so much more than I ever had in the 3.5+ years standing.
I feel like I have jumped the ocean after this Course where while I was standing I felt like I took 5 steps forward and took 30 back constantly. God bless you dear sister for investing in me and my testimony. Thank you once again for having a part of changing my life.
I purchased the RYM book I didn't know it was provided but the Course was the book in a way. This book was a big CONFIRMATION for me as much confirmed what I was learning throughout my journey for 3.5+ long years. Before I read and knew of some of these principles but I did not know necessarily how to apply them to my life. This book opened my eyes to new things as well that I was not aware that I was doing out of pride. Now my eyes have been opened. I feel like I was able to finally piece everything together in this puzzle that I was trying to put together.
I did not receive the book Facing Divorce. However, the testimonies that I read throughout the Course were great to read. It gave me hope and showed me once again that nothing is too hard or impossible for my Heavenly Husband. He is the common denominator. Fall in love with Him and what happens next is the miracle.
Well, 3.5+ years ago my husband left me for another woman (but I did not find out for a few months that he moved in with her nor that he was with anyone else). My husband started to change one day. He wasn't anyone I could recognize, in his words, actions, thoughts, etc. I did not know what it was but I knew this was not my husband and thought this is the enemy but knew nothing more than that nor what to do. I started looking online and came across some Stander's Ministries and started following them.
He was with her for over 2 years and it was utter hell. They broke up. He came home but was only here physically, he did not come back to me or committed to our marriage. He still talked to her a little bit but remained home. This last for 11 months. It was great. We were doing things as a family and it felt great and we were getting closer. Then all of a sudden he started going out again. Saying he was with friends and well I happened to see him texting this girl a lot. Long story short a new one came into the picture but he remained home until a few months ago, he started to stay some nights away and some home. But he would go out doing things and leaving us behind. They have broken up and he's come home several times. But she still remains.
Exactly a month ago, my husband and this other girl broke up. He came home and spontaneously said let's go on a mini-vacation so we did as a family and it was the best trip we ever had. Even my husband said this. A few days after our trip, they started talking again and he was gone this time, he has not been home all but a few nights. Otherwise, he has been gone all month. It was after this trip, that I was directed to your site by a total stranger. I started the Course, read the book and completed the evaluation right away. This journey this month has been so fulfilling and it has changed my life. I am running to Him.
I am letting him go and running to Him. I have found myself on many occasions praying that he didn't come by (because my husband has a routine practically and I know after so long when he will swing by etc). I was good and okay with him not being there, I had my time with my Heavenly Husband. I have even found myself telling my Heavenly Husband that I don't have to have my marriage restored anymore. I just need Him and whatever He wants for me. Heavenly Husband thank You so much for leading me to this divine appointment to meet my ordained and miraculous First Love, My Heavenly Husband. Finding and falling in love with my First Love has been something I have never known I could feel or experience before. Your love, affection, presence, guidance and becoming Your bride has filled everything that has been missing in my life.
Thank You for bringing and taking me on this journey with You. This journey has been so hard and hell at some points but I WOULD NOT CHANGE IT FOR THE WORLD!!!! Being on this journey with You had transformed my life! Thank You for loving me so much that You would go through great lengths just to have a relationship with me. I love You. You're all I need.
Dear Sister, YOU are a precious diamond more valuable than gold, silver or rubies. Your Heavenly Husband has His eyes on you. He wants you. He wants to love you as you have never experienced before. Go on this journey. Open your heart. Open your soul and be filled with Heavenly Husband 's Love that no man can give you. You will never be disappointed with Him. He will never leave you nor forsake you.

Luke 6:38 “Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.”
Matthew 6:19–21 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
