An online devotional for writers
It is God’s privilege to conceal things and the king’s privilege to discover them. (Proverbs 25:2, NLT)
I studied the computer screen, gritting my teeth in frustration. Why couldn’t I find the list of course curriculum on this particular website?
One by one, I clicked each tab in the navigation and studied its drop-down list. Nothing.
So I kept scrolling down until 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 circuitous route to meaningful writing. Obvious superficialities lay on the surface (as on a navigation’s drop-down list). Hidden truths are revealed when I seek them out (as in a site map.)
Discovery is a privilege. It is gained in digging.
Truth uncovered leads to more meaningful writing.
No secret is hidden from you. Thank you for the privilege of digging to discover your truths. Let me be persistent to go beneath the surface.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
