In 2017, I gave in to ‘the push’
In 2017, I got pushed! In fact, my very first blogpost in 2017 was ‘Pushed, I tell you.’ Read it here.
That was on 7 April last year.
This time last year my topmost prayer point was that my very generous employers at the company I was working for at the time, would allow me to continue to work from home.
Little did I know that within the next 12 months, I would not only have left my very cushy work from home job, but I would also have stepped out into an unknown that unravels layer by layer.
Little did I know that The Narrow Gateway was about to be birthed, and I was about wave comfort zones bye-bye.
Little did I know that The B.O.O.M Walk Program was already birthed in God’s heart, and He was getting ready to shake me from the core one Sunday morning during church, when He spoke very clearly to my spirit and said, “Toyin, I want you to write a book. I want you to tell the world how I am showing you how to break free from persistent cycles of sin and inner brokenness … ”
(These are not the exact words, but at the time, I sat down in my seat, grabbed my journal and wrote down similar words!)
Little did I know that the stirring He had been injecting into my spirit for many months, was about to be activated.
I got pushed, I tell you! And am I ever so glad about bit! The journey ahead is long. I literally do not know what the future holds but I am committed, by God’s mercy, to continue to cling to the One who holds the future. Everything else will flow from there.
2018! If 2017 is anything to go by, 2018 will be all about God pushing WHOSOEVER DARES to present any part of his life to God.
Can you feel it?
That’s all I wish for you for 2018 –
– that you will give in to the push! And that you will fall into a life that is first and foremost about discovering the God who pushes those He loves (YES, THAT INCLUDES YOUUUUUU) and embracing what He has pushed you to do for HIM in this world that He loves so much.
2018 is my year of DISCOVERING THE GOD WHO PUSHED ME! Because I have come to know that its not first about what He pushes you into, but rather, it is first about Him drawing you to His loving self, and using you to draw others as well.
Here’s an extract of my first blogpost, to pull it all together:
“So I ask you again. Does this resonate with you? Do you feel the push? Has there been a fire burning inside you, stirring you up to do things that scare you and thrill you at the same time? Do you find yourself seized by the events around you? Maybe in your family, or your community, in your school, place of work, in your nation? Has God placed in you a natural inclination, a gift, to be hospitable, or compassionate, or giving, or efficient, or administrative, or creative, or artistic, or resourceful (for example)? Do you have access to funds, or influence, or a network, or a platform, or time, or equipment, or premises, or knowledge, or skills? There’s grace (divine enablement) right now. Take a dip.”
Need I say more? Feel free to read the full blogpost here.
2018 will be huge!
By God’s grace, I will launch The B.O.O.M Walk Program in the first couple of months. I am trusting God to get the design of the pages finished. The videos are also being edited. Keep your eyes peeled for updates on the Program but in the interim, make sure you ‘indicate your interest’ by clicking here.
Happy New Year! 2018, GIVE IN TO THE PUSH!
In 2018, let’s discover God and His purpose for our lives, together.
Hugs and love.

I am Toyin, fully convicted by my own words, and very much still under construction in the hands of the Father.
The B.O.O.M Walk Program by Toyin Oladiran
We all come from somewhere. We all have our battle scars. We all have those life experiences, past or even ongoing, that have forced us into shadowy corners in our lives, preventing us from living fully, loving fully and most of all, serving God to the uttermost.
Some of us have carried on in this way, and gone on to do life ‘normally’, to become pastors, engineers, fathers, builders, lovers, secretaries, government officials, wives, teachers, sports coaches, gym instructors, you name it. Yet many are living a façade; a classic tale of smokes and mirrors. Many are carrying around, and being defined by those pivotal life experiences. Many have learnt to accept that this is just the way life is – living with and from the baggage.
What’s your scar? Where does it come from? Is it still driving your thoughts and responses to life? Are you tired of your scars keeping you wedged off into the fringes and sidelines of life, constantly angry, bitter, frustrated, rejected, insecure, proud, self-righteous … etc?
That’s what you and I will be tackling with the HOLY SPIRIT in The B.O.O.M WALK PROGRAM.💥
This Program is for EVERYONE…
…Yes, I said EVERYONE!
Be careful now. Do not think that only people who struggle with what we erroneously call ‘the big sins’ like murder, slavery, adultery etc struggle with the ‘Old Man’ (‘B.O.O.M’ stands for ‘bow out, Old Man’). Yes those are reflections of the ‘Old Man’ at work, but for the vast majority of people, the traits of the ‘Old Man’ are way more subtle, and internal.
I’m talking anger, bitterness, unforgiveness, self-righteousness, pride, fear, insecurity, rebellion against God, inferiority complex, lack of self-control…the list can go on.
The ‘Old Man’ thrives in secrecy… it’s all about the state of the mind, isn’t it?
Come on. Do not be afraid! And do not settle for more of the same!
Click here now to indicate your interest and to begin to prepare your heart and your spaces. The kind of transformation we are talking about here does not come by the click of a finger, neither does it come by lurking in a spectator’s seat. You need to take a bold step, own who you are and where you are at, and come along, for The B.O.O.M Walk Program.
I cannot WAIT to work with you. And if I am so excited about it, imagine how God, the Incredible Lover of your soul feels?😉
Hugs and Love,
