Husband Returns After 26 Years
"I wanted to let you know that my husband who was prodigal from the Father for close to 26 years returned to Jesus in June 2010. It happened so subtly that I did not even clue in ... I had purposed to back off totally and let God have His way, and just surrendered him to our Father, trusting His word. Jim told me that God began invading his thoughts and heart in March until one night he surrendered his life to him in the hot tub of all places. Now he stands in the gap praying for our 21 yr old son who is also prodigal. I have never seen such an extreme change in anyone as I've seen in my husband. It's amazing and God is so so sooooooo GOOD!! You're "respite" was always such a good reminder for me to back off and trust God and I hope this testimony encourages you and all your readers who are waiting for their prodigals to return. God is faithful more than you can even imagine...oh, and one more thing ... it seems to me that when a prodigal returns, God puts them on a fast track of discipleship to make up for lost time. LOL!" ~Thanks again. Rena
Prodigals are not limited to one’s children or drug use; whether child or adult, spouse, relative, or friend, anyone who walks away from God is lost and in need of prayer! Many of us love a prodigal who is addicted to drugs and/or alcohol; for others it may be a wayward spouse, sibling, parent or best friend. Adultery, addiction, distorted entitlement beliefs—extravagant reckless living.
