TPF winner Ruth Matete is one strong woman who has been to hell and back.
From losing her husband, to being accused of many evils, to being dumped by friends, the soulful singer has seen it all.
The singer turned pastor recently took to social media to remember a moment in her life when everything came down crumbling.
In a long post shared on her different social media platforms, the expectant Ruth disclosed she was once homeless and slept hungry occasionally while still pregnant.
Ruth said while her situation weighed her down, she never gave up or despaired but instead turned to God who saw her through.
“Truth is, when I look back, I realize that I had and still have more people who are for me than those who are against me. People, both those I know and strangers have stood with me. My unborn child and I have not gone a day without food or shelter. It's just that the enemy will always want us to focus on the bad by magnifying it. But in real sense, the good always outweighs the bad,’’ Ruth wrote in part.
She used her story to encourage her followers never to lose trust in God in whatever situation they are in.
‘’Anyway, am here to tell you to learn to trust in God fully. It is human nature to run to our friends and expect them to help us in times of need. But I have learned that it is safer and better to trust in God. The fact is you need help. The problem is you already have figured out a way you want God to help you. Like for instance, I expected God to come through for me through some specific people. But God had other plans. In the end I got more help than I even needed. But because I was fixated on who should help me, I ended up being angry, bitter and frustrated when they didn't, yet, I received help in the end.’’ She added.
These, Ruth wrote while enjoying her holiday in Coast.
The singer recently induced jealousy online after flaunting her baby bump in a series of photos posted on her IG.
