Growing up, whenever I would talk about a boy, trouble with a boy, a boy who hurt me or a boy I liked, my mom would always reply with, “Boys are like buses. There will be another one along in 15 minutes. Besides, the only boy that matters is Jesus.”
Little did I know this was some of the most important advice I would ever receive. My mother has always been a beacon of strength. She is a survivor. God gave her a tough life and through it all she has remained faithful to Him. She loves Jesus with all her heart.
It sounds uncomfortable, but talk to your mom. Tell her what’s going on in your love life. If your mom isn’t a woman of God, talk to a woman you trust who is intent on following God.
We can learn so much from the women around us who love Jesus.
