Here goes an early morning inspiration message as shared on new Mother, Lilian Esoro's page!
My parents raised me to be independent.. Not in a angry defensive kind of way.. But with soft confidence. I grew up learning to have a plan B,C, D.. Because people will be people.. In this journey of independence my fuel is GRACE. I am fully fully covered and insured by Gods grace. We often make the mistake of leaning on the promises and well meaning words of "people". The thing is ; PEOPLE CHANGE & PEOPLE CHANGE THEIR MINDS. You can't get angry or be broken by that because they are PEOPLE. GOD DOES NOT CHANGE. He is faithful. I never over estimate my priority status with anyone .. You do that.. You get set up for disappointment. But God says.. I am the apple of His eye.. He knows me by name.. He is mindful of me. Sometimes God will use strangers to do the work He sent other people close to you to do... Just so you are never tempted to glorify a person.. Sometimes God will let people break their word so you learn to stand on your own feet. Know that people have their own lives , their own goals, their own problems.. You can't be their "priority/responsibility "My help is in the name of the Lord.. Learn that ..
