Putting all negativity aside and turning her challenges into stepping stones to achieve success, on-air-personality, Toke Makinwa continues to blossom each day as she keeps unfolding the different projects she has been doing.
On her birthday this month, the on-air-personality shared a video teaser from her upcoming project titled “On Becoming”, which talks about her life after her marriage crashed, the shame she suffered, what people said about her and how she rose from it all to become who she is today.
Yesterday, Toke posted the picture of her “On Becoming”, book on her Instagram page.
According to her, God had told her she was going to write a book at the beginning of last year but she didn’t understand until her marriage crashed. Only then did she realise what God had been telling her.
She noted that the book would be available for purchase on the 28th of this month.
Today is the most exciting day of my life. Today I Become ❤️… I hereby introduce you to #OnBecoming. At the beginning of last year (2015) when the lord told me I was going to write a book I was confused. Is it God’s voice, is it mine???? How will this work? I never planned to write a book, what I’m I supposed to write.
I did what I had become used to, I ran. Just Like Jonah; I ran. I pushed it deep down and completely let it go. And then it began, God started sending people to me.
Every time someone told me they thought I should write a book, I remembered my conversation with God in January but I was still unsure. (Fear maybe), I felt the idea was great but deep down I was not fully convinced.
Then came June and my world fell apart. My world was crushed completely and in all of the pain I heard it again. This time, I knew what happened to me happened for a reason. I am a city set on a hill. My life will reflect God’s glory. I have been given a platform to share and God was going to use my pain.
In the pain there was a message and On Becoming was conceived.
On Becoming is My journey through pain to victory. It is my prayer that God does what he planned from the start with this project. I can’t wait to put “author” in my bio. I wrote a book ya’ll. I did it 💯💯💯💯💯
