Selah is a Hebrew word used frequently in the Bible, often in the Psalms. It is probably either a liturgico-musical mark or an instruction on the reading of the text, meaning something like “stop and listen”.
The Amplified Bible states Selah as “pause, and think of that”.
I like the thought of that.
To take time rather than have time take from you.
Life moves at a fast pace.
There’s a lot to take in on a daily basis.
I don’t want to miss the richness of life just because it moves so fast. I don’t want to live with the fear that my life is so full and yet I’m missing something.
“We do not remember days, we remember moments. The richness of life lies in memories we have forgotten.” (Cesarean Pavese)
I believe these moments are from God.
Our days, our lives made up of many moments.
And God is there.
He is an incredibly extravagant and wildly loving God. Whose nature is to give with such richness. So much so, that each moment captured is bursting with the richness of God’s nature and presence.
And these moments need to be remembered, recorded, taken notice of.
Given the time to soak into our hearts and bleed into spirits.
Leaving a mark on us forever.
Challenging us to look for God in everyday life and the extraordinary miracles.
Choosing to see.
And then there is Selah
Choosing to pause and ponder and reflect.
To drink it all in.
All of His goodness.
The richest of riches.
To fully embrace the moment.
To find God.
