You don’t want to depress your girl, but she might need to know this.
I did a Google search (because you know everything on the internet is true, right?) and typed in:
“At what age do guys mature?”
The answers might just bum them out a bit.
That’s the brain. When it came to emotions, the top three posts all said 43! 43 years old is when the male brain is fully mature when it comes to emotions.
Maybe, like me, you’ve taught your girl: “Make your list of what you are looking for in a guy and don’t settle.” I’m not saying we shouldn’t teach this; we should. Here is the deal though: for guys to be the guys that matches up with her list, chances are they’re probably not in high school!
With that in mind, challenge your girl today to make a switch. To bravely make the switch from looking for the guy to becoming the girl.
Take this time. This amazing time in her life, to focus on becoming the girl. Becoming the girl who is reaching her fullest potential. The girl who is investing her time, energy and emotions becoming the best she can become; the best God created her to become.
Then, if and when God brings that mature godly guy into her life, she’ll be the mature godly girl too.
