Gospel singer Ruth Matete has opened up about her healing journey and life after her husband Pastor John Apewajoye passed away.
Taking to her social media pages, Matete reminisced how life had become a mountain previously but managed to get through and see life in a positive direction.
She posted a throwback picture of herself clad in a wedding gown and captioned it with a lengthy message revealing that when her husband died she never wanted to associate herself with such pictures.
“Before I got married, I used to hear so much about marriage and at times I would shiver. The most common one at the time was this, Those who are inside want out, and those who are outside wanted in.Today, I am so proud of myself and how far I have come. Yes. At times you got to pat your own self in the back and encourage yourself.”
The former Tusker Project Fame winner also disclosed that she and John were ordained as pastors immediately after their marriage.
She noted that at that time the position was tough but they did their best.
Matete also encouraged her followers to always trust in God and serve him without shame or guilt.
Her fans took to the comment section supporting her remarks.
Here are some of the comments.
