What a spot-on devotional. I love how you tied it into something many of struggle with, the flitting to and fro, the 'busy' work.

A great reminder to slow down and renew ourselves in the Lord.
This is a really rough week for me and your words touched my heart and were exactly what I needed to hear. I liked the description of the busy bee too. With some trimming (most devotional books or magazines have a 250 or 300 word limit), I really think this would be great for a world-wide devotional magazine like The Upper Room.
Great analogy. We get exhausted, just like the hummingbird, when we try to do things on our own power. And especially try to do things that God did not create us to do. Thanks for the reminder.
Nice job on this devotional, and it's also a good take on the topic. I hope you'll submit this for publication.
I applied this to my struggle with anxiety and appreciated it. Various applications here with such a good message.
This is a very thought-filled devotional. I love the example of the hummingbird. How often do I get caught up in the busyness of life and become exhausted to the brink of despair, I cannot tell you. Nice work.
A well-thought out devotional. Just this morning I was like that hummingbird and the Lord did just what you described. Good job.
This is really a wonderful devotional. The analogy is perfect and the descriptions memorable.
