It is God’s privilege to conceal things and the king’s privilege to discover them. (Proverbs 25:2, NLT)

Study the word

I studied the course, gritting my teeth in frustration. I can’t find the list that will explain to me what it requires of me. One by one, I clicked each tab on the navigation and studied its drop-down list. Nothing.

I kept scrolling down until I saw that precious link in the footer titled, “Site Map.”

I clicked… and what opened up was a beautiful, glorious outline of the site.

No wonder I had to dig! The site map listed literally hundreds of pages. I searched through and eventually, there it was: “Required Curriculum” as a line item.

The site was chock full of content, but the outline—the site map—identified each page lay that behind the skin of the website template. It was set up in an orderly, logical framework.

The information was there. I simply found it in a way I didn’t expect by digging.

I take the same route to meaningful writing. Obvious superficialities lay on the surface (as on a navigation’s drop-down list). It reveals hidden truths when I search them out (as in a site map.)

Discovery is a privilege. We gain it in digging.

Truth uncovered leads to more meaningful writing.


Heavenly Father,

No secret is hidden from you. Thank you for the privilege of digging in to discover your truths. Let me be persistent to go beneath the surface.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
