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.
