LETTER TO MY YOUNGER SELF – DEAR JOYNER AGIDA

Dear Joyner,

It is with great pleaure and wit bestowed by the loving grace of Jehovah God, our heavenly father I write you this letter with warm greetings.

First and foremost, I would like to say what a beautiful girl with such rare and kind soul you are, your heart is so big it can fill all the love in the world; this, I pray and beg you never to lose. Don’t sulk too long or live in the resentment of all the bretrayals you will face, they are responsible for your growth and experiences in dealing with life so gracefully and courageously right now.

Now let me state that, NO!!! the heartaches from betrayals, disappointment and broken heart will not kill you, you will live and love again and indeed meet friends that will fill your life with love and joy in ways you never imagined, they will make you see and appreciate the reason you had to meet the terrible ones first because the good ones will show you what it means never to let them go.

However the main reason I write the letter to you is to remind you;

Never try to fit in

Joyner 2022

You are one of a kind, your courage, will and personality, will threaten a lot of people because they have chosen to bask in their weakness, rather than evolve through their pain. The strong however will be drawn to you and will be so inspired by your light that they will do and achieve great things to the glory of our good heavenly father;- Jehovah God

I’ll say it again for emphasis, “never try to fit in.” Give your self time and allow things to fall into place, you will be alright. Focus more on building your self spiritually earlier than expected. never leave the house of God and put your trust in him always and the wisdom he shares with you in form of your intuition and gut feeling.

Train and guide your conscience only by his word and direction which he provides through his theocratic arrangement. And remember that everything is going to be alright in Jehovah’s due time. You are currently doing a great job on your self, don’t stop doing the best you can but remember to pause every now and then to appreciate the process and beauty of your journey thus far.

Celebrate the small wins as much as the big ones, clap for your self and pat your self on the back more often, give your passion and hustle the very best attention and constitency because no one, my darling is going to do you and/or sell you better than YOU.

Dearest younger Joyner, dare I forget to mention that you will definitely meet your Yang in due time, because God always has a man for every woman, bearing in mind;

Ecclesiastes 3:11 and Jeremiah 29:11-14a.

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has even put eternity in their heart; yet mankind will never find out the work that the true God has made from start to finish.

Ecclesiastes 3:11

For I well know the thoughts that I am thinking toward you,’ declares Jehovah, ‘thoughts of peace, and not of calamity, to give you a future and a hope. And you will call me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.’ “‘You will seek me and find me, for you will search for me with all your heart. And I will let you find me,’ declares Jehovah.

Jeremiah 29:11-14a.

Read it over and over until you believe it without a hint of doubt. Above all remember Philipians 4:6-7 do not be anxious but trust in Jehovah completely.

Do not be anxious over anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving, let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6-7
Philipians 4:6-7

Finally, Joyner, whatever things are true, whatever things are of serious concerns, whatever things are righteous, whatever things are chaste, whatever things are loveable, whatever things are well-spoken-of, whatever things are virtuous and whatever things are praise worthy, continue concidering these things.

Remember the things you have learnt as well as accepted and heard and saw in connection with Christ Jesus, practice these and the God of peace will be with you always.

I love you so much Jo.

Yours faithfully,

Your future self

Joyner Agida

  2. This is a great piece. I feel we should all do this at every milestone age because looking back and acknowledging all that happened in the past (good and bad) will set a great tone for your outlook and how you decide to live life in the future

  3. If we do not aspire to inspire the future what legacy will we live behind, if any.
    This is the rising of a star, not the culmination of a journey no. There is so much that can be said about this, a truly magnificent piece, a must read for younger generations and old as well.

  4. Life is best lived in hindsight, there will always the desire to look back at your life, to see how far you’ve come and see how different life would have been, if certain things went a certain way.

    For me personally, I feel this desire more often than I’d like to admit. However I’ve come to the realization that, if I could, I wouldn’t want anything to change. Because, everything that has happened, has created the unique experience, that is my life. The decisions, the actions, the mistakes, all of it has created the beautiful thing that is my Life.

    Beautiful piece Jo, putting together something like this, is no mean task. I see the great work you’re doing and I pray for grace and strength to keep being the amazing person that you are.

  5. I love the emotions this post evoked in me as I read through. It’s an amazing letter and I’m sure your younger self would be proud of the woman you are now Jo!

    There are a number of things I would tell my younger self – in fact I did write a letter like this once. But one thing I would shout out to my younger self is that, being small is not a death sentence! 😂 In fact, it fueled your path to purpose and so many other beautiful things. So there’s no need to feel insecure about it.

  6. This post is so deep cos it’s not just a letter to Joyner Agida, but also a letter to anyone who is human, so many passages from the Bible to help the mind focus and know what is true and right, I feel like you wrote this letter to me, and I’m so happy to read it over and over again.
