Toke who recently filed for divorce from her husband Maje who got his side chick pregnant opened up on moving into a new flat, the challenges she feared and how she has been able to conquer them.
Here is what she wrote:
“My #wcw? you never know how strong you are until you are tested and tried? I used to underestimate myself, I would usually speak myself out of doing things, the voice of fear was so loud till what I feared the most happened to me (like Job) and In my confusion and fear, not knowing what next, I had to learn the hard way but thru it all I found a new me, a girl I didn’t know existed and it’s been really fun getting to know her.

I remember when I moved into my new flat, I didn’t know how I would make it thru but God was there before me. Each time I tried to settle I felt I was insulting God; did I create myself? Do I not trust him? Is his grace not sufficient?
And true to his word, he’s always looked out for this little girl and each time I ask myself how did I come this far, how am I able to stand? Pay bills, thrive and not just survive; I feel so much comfort and I confront my fears about going further.
I’m all grown. I will get by and by his grace my testimony will be complete. Life happens, life doesn’t stop so when next you are faced with “how will I do this??” Think if he brought me to it, his grace is sufficient to take me thru it and I will come out on the other side.
Just like Job, (job had in the end much more than he lost in the beginning) my season of restoration will come ???”
