It has been on my mind and to-do lists for a while now. But, the food looked healthy enough, so I refrained from changing it. Nevermind that I didn't see hummingbirds ever eating it. I allowed what seemed to be real enough to rule my actions.
When I got the two feeders down, I realized that the "healthy" looking food was just a mirage. It had been there too long.
I cleaned out both feeders and made some fresh food.
It wasn't very long at all after I had hung the two feeders that I noticed a humming bird drinking from one of them. Ah, it knew. The food was fresh again.
This was a cause for a pause for me. It made me think, in other words. First, it made me think about the hummingbirds: A change in the sustenance was what was needed to bring the little guys back. The food had gotten old and wasn't healthy. They knew it and stayed away.
Then I started thinking in terms of my spiritual health:
- What spiritual food looks healthy enough but is no longer providing sustenance to/for me?
- What do I need to change up or to change out in order to have healthier sustenance in my spiritual provision?
