Kambua: They called me barren but God opened my womb
Gospel singer Kambua has come out to spread love and hope by letting the downtrodden know that there’s hope in the midst of a storm.
The singer is known to have had a challenge bearing children for seven years before she finally delivered her first child.
Her story is now an inspiration to many women who have been labeled barren to also have hope that they will one day receive their blessing when the time is ripe.
In a recent Instagram upload, the now mother of two shared a message saying that regardless of the label one has been given by society God is sure to make a way for them the way He did for her.
“I don’t know what they called you… what they labeled you as… broke. Divorced. Unmarried. The sickly one. They called me barren. But God looked at me and saw me whole. Complete. Lacking nothing. And when I settled this truth within myself, He opened my womb and changed my story. May this be the year that God changes your story,” Kambua wrote.
“But rest assured that He will not only do what you ask of him, He will do more. Much, much more!” she said.
Having lost her second-born son just days after delivery almost two years ago, Kambua chose to keep her third pregnancy private and away from the prying eyes of social media.
It was only after two months of delivering that she revealed she had been pregnant all along.
Kambua has always been candid about her difficult fertility journey and how faith led her through her seven years of waiting after her marriage.
In 2020, she gave birth to her firstborn and announced she was pregnant with her second born.
However, in 2021 February, she shared the unfortunate news of the passing of her second child, a newborn named Malachi Manundu Muthiga Mathu.
In an Instagram post, she revealed that the baby boy had complications, and efforts by the medics to save his life were futile.
Kambua, at the time, said she would take a social media break to process the occurrence.
“Our tears fall freely because our hearts are broken beyond words. But our faith and hope remain unshaken because we have our trust in a dependable God. A good, good Father. We may not know how to navigate the days ahead, but God does. And so we trust Him. Please allow us some time to process all of this,” she said.
