“I questioned God a lot, but now I understand why,” Ruth Matete opens up 5 months after husband’s death
It has been almost 5 months since gospel artist Ruth Matete’s husband Belovedjohn Apewajoye breathed his last.
April 6 remains a date imprinted on the singer’s mind and life, as the fateful day her husband was caught in the middle of a fire accident in their house at Great Wall Gardens, Athi River.
An incident that did not spare her husband of a second life, succumbing to sustained injuries on April 11. Since then, it has been nothing rosy for an expectant Ruth Matete.
She finally laid the father to her unborn child to rest on July 23 in a private sorrowful event but even so, her eyes have been filled with tears. Telling more on her recently revived Instagram page, the pastor and singer recalled how she would persistently ask God why her.
But as time went by, she has found the answers she was looking for, because nothing catches God by surprise.
“That’s when I stopped asking why me and instead asked God to show me the reason why He allowed me to face it… And all things work together for good, to those who love Him and are called according to His purpose,” penned Ruth Matete.
As she looks forward to holding her little one in her arms, the single mom revealed she was no longer going to hold onto the pain, the heartbreak and the tearful last few months that saw her world turn dark.
“It’s a few months since my late husband went to be with his maker, and I can candidly tell you, that I now understand why God allowed me to go through it. Do I still cry? Yes. But it gets better with time. I have made up my mind not to waste my pain. God must and will be glorified through my pain,” she wrapped up.
Her post, new life and light was received with love by fans, who adored her courage and bravery, wishing her nothing but God’s blessings.
