I have made up my mind not to waste my pain- Ruth Matete months after hubby's death

One day I asked God why me- Ruth Matete

Singer Ruth Matete and late hubby BelovedJohn Apewajoye

Gospel singer cum Minister Ruth Matete has said that she is not going to waste her pain, lamenting about what happened in her life but instead will glorify God through her pain.

In a well written post, Matete mentioned that she used to question God a lot, but later on learnt to ask for strength, to be able to overcome obstacles in her life.

“One day I asked God why me, and He asked me who I would wish to go through it in my stead. That's when I stopped asking why me and instead asked God to show me the reason why He allowed me to face it. Because I know nothing catches Him by surprise. And all things work together for good, to those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. 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.
