When I Am Afraid


Even though it is nearing the end of November, the Romerillo plants are still blooming—at least some of them.

I noticed one at the end of my front sidewalk, gently growing at the edge of my front plant garden.

Many of the plants that were blooming a few weeks ago are gone now, yet these continued to grow.

It was still possible to them to thrive.

Sometimes it can be frightening to be among the few.

Maybe even to be the only one.

I don’t think flowers feel emotion, but I can compare our lives to the plant.

Even if it seems unlikely, God can cause growth in us, no matter what season we are in.

Nothing is impossible with God.

So what if we are afraid out there, blooming all by ourselves?

We must trust in God at all times—

especially when we are afraid.

When I am afraid,
    I put my trust in you.

—Psalm 56:3
