Gospel singer, Ruth Matete has left tongues wagging on the inter webs after she posted an encrypted message on her Instagram page and a photo of her alongside one man whom she praised for helping her stand on her feet again.
According the TPF season five winner, the mystery man came at the right time when she needed redemption from her struggles and helped her see light at the end of the tunnel.
And I thought to myself, am I of any value to this world? You meet someone and they tell you it shall be well some day. God will make a way!!
The songbird has been posting a number of photos chilling with this very man whom seems to be the love of her life.
From going for road trips (recently they were in Nanyuki) to wearing matching shoes to hanging out in social places, the two are inseparable.
Check out some of their photos together below.
Matete then went on to narrate how she unsuccessfully tried to take her life numerous times after she had hit rock bottom. From her finances, relationships to ministry, nothing was working and at one point she thought God was indeed punishing her for something she had done.
Read her emotional post below.
Long post alert
It’s been a while since I wrote something long.. The last week has been such a reflective week for me.. I am the kind of person who Writes when I feel overwhelmed, either in a good way or bad way. And recently, I have just been thinking of God’s goodness.
I’m sure we all have that one time in our lives when things were so bad we can’t compare it with any other time in our lives. I have such a year. And I remember how everything was not working for me. Thought of taking my life to end all the pain and misery… And to some point I actually tried but I wasn’t successful because God!
Finances were not working. Relationship not working. Some main friendships ended…. Ministry was not working. And I thought to myself, am I of any value to this world? You meet someone and they tell you it shall be well some day. God will make a way!! 😥😥😥 I didn’t want to hear anything that talked of future. I wanted a solution now now now! I wanted to hear, “God has made a way” “Things are okay”
It is then that I learned that you never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have. One time I moved out of my house and went to live with my dad because he was scared staying alone was not safe. I kept trying to kill myself to no avail.. At some point I even believed that God was punishing me for something I did.. Oh my!! I could write and write. But I have seen God. I have learned some major lessons in life.. 1. The pain we go through is to prepare us for the future
2. God’s timing is the best
3. God knows when you hurt and He has a reason for allowing the pain
4. The day you find out your purpose is the day you start living
5. Forgiveness of sin does not take away the punishment or consequences of the sin (Ask David in the bible)
6. God coreects us coz He loves us
7. When God wipes away your tears, He wipes it all… I mean, every kind of tear at once
8. Only God can heal a wounded heart
9. God forgives. Man does not!
10. Seek ye first the kigdom of God and His righteousness, and all these other things shall be added unto you.
