Beware of Cuffin Season

Ashley Jefferson

Ahhhh September! It means no more staying up late watching TV for hours but instead getting up early and going back to school. It means trading in summer shorts and sandals for fall sweaters and boots. But those aren't the only things changing.

As the leaves begin to turn pretty shades of orange and the smell of pumpkin spice fills the air, it also means the start of what's called "cuffin season." Hmmm...you know what I'm talking about - it's that time of year when single people look to get in a relationship so they have someone to cuddle up with as the weather gets colder.

As girls, it's hard when you see your friends all coupled up, holding hands, posting pics on Instagram....they look happy, they look in love and you want that too.

Proverbs 4:23 says "Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it."

I'm not sure where the whole "cuffin season" idea came from, but one thing's for sure - it's very dangerous, especially when you're young. Think about it, "cuffin season" encourages you to get into a relationship for all the wrong reasons. 

God loves us and doesn't want to see us give our hearts away to this guy and that guy.  That's why we have to be careful. It might seem like fun and games, but jumping into a relationship just satisfy the "lonely bug" is never the answer.

Although "cuffin season" is only meant to be during the fall/winter, what happens in a few short months can lead to long-term heartbreak and who wants that? So girl no matter what time of year it is, never forget to guard your heart.

Who Really Has The Keys?

Picture this: You texted that guy you've been eyeing for months and you're waiting for him to text you back. 5 minutes turns into 10 minutes which turns into 15 minutes and before you know it - a whole hours has passed by and still no reply.

So how do you respond? Do you start worrying, saying to yourself, "Why didn't he respond? Is he ignoring me? Is he with someone else?"

Or do you get mad and start talking bad about him, saying, "I can't believe he didn't respond! He's such a [insert a name here] and he's not that cute anyway!"

Or do you not let it bother you at all? (Be honest, I know I'm not the only one who has chosen one of the first 2 before) As females, we are naturally emotional - and it isn't just during that time of the month. But if we are honest with ourselves, too often we let our emotions be determined by people.

Psalm 118:8 says, "It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man."

That means we can't let our days be made or ruined by the actions of others. We can't control people but we can control how we choose to respond to them - even when they don't do the things we want them to.

We weren't made to depend on people - people are wishy-washy, they change more than the weather. Yes the guy you like starts out saying all the right things but he will eventually do something that irks you. On the other hand, God is truly dependable. He is constant - He is the same yesterday, today and forever (see Hebrews 13:8).  Therefore let's pickpocket the person who we gave the keys to and put the key to our happiness, the key to our hearts into the hands of God - He's the rightful owner anyway.
