Dear Partners, Thank you for sharing His word to us. Thank you for sowing seeds so that we may grow. Thank you for showing kindness, may we be able to show kindness in return. Thank you for thinking of us, broken, desperately seeking for help, lost, suicidal, hanging on the edge of a cliff; may we be able to encourage as you have encouraged us.
May we all become His Bride, no matter the circumstance. May we all be restored to Him, our One True Love. May we all be able to bask in His love and share it to the rest of the world, even to those who do not deserve it, may we not see anyone as undeserving of love. May we always and forever be more under His presence, blessed by His grace and mercy, and never turn our back on Him. May we never forget Him when circumstances improve.
May this Ministry be blessed ever more with resources to enable it to continue and expand so that no woman will ever lose hope.
I remember desperately crying like there's no tomorrow, begging the Lord to change my circumstance, to give me some semblance of hope for my marriage. I don't remember exactly what I typed to google search that morning, it was around 5 in the morning based on the MEQ I answered, but after more than 3 months of separation, I was finally led to hopeatlast.com. It was a time of extreme desperation and I was completely broken down... and it was the right time, for me to receive the Hope from the Lord. This book “How God Can and Will Restore Your Marriage” is the source of everything good in me. Nobody else taught me or showed me how to have an intimate relationship with the Lord, not my family, friends, school (Catholic School from nursery to College), work... not even my EH “earthly husband”. I didn't know what that meant, to share an intimate relationship with Him.
It's one thing to pray - to ask and give thanks. But when you get to know who He is, everything is done. Nothing can compete. You just lay your life down, and it's over. He's won you over, and He's in-charge of You. Oh but He doesn't chain You to Him, He lets you go. So after being restored in my marriage, I STRAYED AGAIN. Oh please know how much struggle it is to forgive myself. I strayed because life happened and I stopped reading the principles, saying I already know them, I stopped the lessons because I simply didn't have time. Greatest mistake of my life. A day without the Lord, is a day in hell. I'm again here, desperate, broken, without anything, just begging for His mercy and love, to help me be content with my circumstance, to let Him finish His work in me.
The WOTTs “Word of Their Testimony” are inspiring. The testimonies all share one thing. They remained in Him, they let Him take over their lives. He becomes the King of the women's lives, and even when the marriage is not restored, He has taken care of them. It gives you hope when you think your situation is bad. It teaches you or guides you on how to proceed with your situation.
My marriage situation before I found your ministry was my EH hates me and wants to file for an annulment. But I believe God is working.. We are to meet his lawyer. May I be blessed with the Holy Spirit to mute me, and be radiant with His love.
I was blessed with a free Facing Divorce Again course. Thank you so much. Here I learned enthusiasm and not being afraid. Not easy! it's a process, especially with what's going on right now. I'll continue to read and may God help me to remember them and follow His principles, for His glory.
Dear Lord, thank You for never giving up on me even when I gave up on You. Thank You for leading me where You want me to be. Thank You for always being by my side even when I'm hanging on the edge of a cliff and wanting to let go, You want me to hang on, hang on a little tighter, so I can learn from where I am and see the beauty of my surroundings even at such scary position. Thank You because I have You to care for me. Thank You for being patient with me as I let my EH go. Thank You for saying You will always be by my side.
Dear Bride, God cares for you. It's all that matters. His thoughts are not your thoughts, His ways are not your ways. He will change your life, you better believe it, cause He can and He will. Oh and your husband, he's just collateral damage, and collateral goods. God removed lover and friend from you so you choose to depend on Him, His love, His mercy, His kindness. And when you are restored to God, He will make even your enemies to be at peace with you, He can and He will turn hearts. Believe Him. Trust Him, not just any man, Him!

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.”
