Gifts Outside My Window

It is time to make more nectar for the hummingbirds. Their feeder is empty and they noisily voiced their disapproval and their hunger earlier this morning. Hummingbirds, though small, require 155,000 calories each day. In comparison, a 170-pound man needs 3,500 calories. So, when these birds come to my window for breakfast, they want to be fed!

When I’m hungry, I can get something from my kitchen. But when I’m hungry for the Lord, I turn to His Word and find nourishment. I am only a growing child of God, so I need His teachings in abundance to help me mature.

The food in my kitchen is limited. Just like the hummingbird feeder outside my window, it can sometimes run empty. But God’s Word is a constant, never-ending supply of spiritual sustenance. The Lord knows how much I need to grow in Him, and He never fails to provide.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.

Matthew 5:6

  1. It will be some time before the hummers show up here, Pandy. They are so neat. They will come to the window and hover as if to say "We're baaaaaaaaaaack!"

    The Word is the place for us all to we live each day looking forward to spending eternity with Him. :)+
