Gospel artiste-cum-pastor Ruth Matete is back on social media a few weeks after burying her husband.
Ruth, who’s expecting her first child, in a post she shared on her new account wrote,
Taking a day at a time. Please be kind with your words. It’s Not easy for me to be back on social media. But life has to go on.
Matete was forced to deactivate her social media accounts after her husband Pastor Beloved John passed away. She was criticised all over social media.
Ruth Matete has started a YouTube channel and she revealed she will be using it to inspire and give hope to those going through difficult times.
‘This channel exists to give hope and to encourage, through real life experiences, backed up by the word of God Almighty. Subscribe and get ready to be blessed with my music as well. It is my prayer, that the word of the Lord will come alive in your life through the content that will be shared here. Thank you for subscribing. Link in bio,’ she wrote.
The former Tusker Project Fame winner paid a glowing tribute to her husband, which read,
‘…B, IT HURTS SO MUCH. IT DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE YOU DIED WHILE GROWING. AT FIRST, I THOUGHT GOD WAS SO UNFAIR BUT LATER ON, I REMEMBERED THE PRAYER I MADE TO GOD TO HEAL YOU COMPLETELY TO TAKE AWAY THE PAIN AND TO RESSURECT WITH YOU, I DIDN’T MEAN IT THAT WAY. DID I PRAY THE WRONG PRAYER? I’LL NEVER KNOW. ALL I KNOW IS I JUST WANTED TO HAVE YOU BACK HOME HEALED. GOD HAS ANSWERED MY PRAYER. IT MAY NOT BE THE ANSWER I EXPECTED OR WANTED BUT ITS WHAT I ASKED FOR. YOU ARE NO LONGER IN PAIN AND NEVER EVER WILL YOU BE. I KNOW YOU’RE HAPPY WHEREVER YOU ARE. EVEN IF I ASKED YOU TO COME BACK TO ME YOU WOULDN’T WANT TO. I MEAN WHO WANTS TO COME BACK TO A WORLD OF SO MUCH PAIN, A WORLD OF WEARING MASKS COZ OF CORONA. AS HARD AS IT HAS BEEN MY LOVE, I HAVE ACCEPTED GOD’S WILL, IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE NOW BUT I’M CERTAIN IT WILL SOMEDAY. HE’S NOT A WICKED GOD. BY THE GRACE OF GOD I’LL CONTINUE WITH THE MINISTRY WE HAD STARTED COZ I KNOW YOU’LL WANT ME TO.’
