Gospel singer Ruth Matete has paid tribute to her late husband Pastor Beloved john Apewajoye, who succumbed to fire injuries last year, leaving her two months pregnant.
To mark one year, the mother of one recounted the dreams they had as a couple, only for her husband to die five months after their wedding.
Ruth says it has not been easy for her and even raising her daughter alone.
She says she has not been able to come to terms with the fact that she is now a widow.
Check out her post;
‘One year ago a day like today 11th April 2020,my husband Pastor Belovedjohn Apewajoye went to be with the Lord, 5 months after our wedding😭😭
I could write a book on the events that followed after he was pronounced dead.
It’s been crazy. It’s been hard. But God’s grace has kept me. I was 2 months pregnant with my daughter when her father died. I didn’t know how I was going to make it or if I was even going to make it. But God!
This post comes to say a big thank you to God for keeping me, and to you my friend, fan who stood in the gap for me. I am eternally grateful.
Even though, we know that we all are gonna die someday, somehow no one is ever ready when death knocks.
My husband and I had plans, dreams, that we were going to work towards, but God had other plans.
I want to tell you who is reading this and you’re in a place you have no idea of how or if you’ll ever get out of. Look to Jesus. Don’t waste your tears. Don’t Cry without hope. Cry. But cry to God. He has already provided a way of escape. You may not see it yet, but it’s coming.
I miss my husband so much😥😥
Every milestone my baby Toluwa achieves, I wish that her father would be here to celebrate it with me. But such is life. Some days are really hard. I have accepted the fact that healing will take time. I won’t rush myself. I’ll heal when I heal.
One day I was a wife. Today am a widow😭😭
To be honest some days it all feels like a dream.
It’s a hard day for me.. Been trying to block it by watching movies and playing with Toluwa, but it’s hard😭
Even the strongest of us need to be held in prayers some days. Today, is that day for me.
A short prayer, a text message, call will help. I really covet your prayers
