When Toke Makinwa released her book, “On Becoming,” many criticised her and saying why is she writing a book on what she went through.
In an instagram post, the media personality explained how she got that name and what writing the story means to her journey.
Someone asked me why the title “On Becoming”. The Holy Spirit gave me that name. I remember thinking of a name for this project and when I got “OnBecoming…” i wasn’t quite sure why or what it meant in totality but on a flight to Houston yesterday it hit me, I am a work in progress, no full stop till I’m gone.
I am unfinished, incomplete, the story is still being written, the race is long and God has given me purpose. The last few years of my life hasn’t been the easiest but thru it all I have grown, I am becoming. I’ve heard people say ” are you the only one to go thru tough times” and my response remains the same. – what did you do with what you went thru?
How did you help someone else grow thru your struggle, the purpose is always bigger than the pain, did you learn all you have to keep it to yourself?
It’s ok not to get the vision, it is not for everyone. I feel Empowered, I feel chosen, and again the lord has sent me on another mission.
