Selah

i sit here typing this very quick blog post with one hand filled with a sleeping baby sister who is trying to get over a nasty cold. this explains the lack of capitalization. :)

i have random words that stick themselves in my head and just won’t leave until i go through the bible looking for the verses that contain the word. for example words of late have been hope, rejoice, rest. the last few days it has been selah. selah: “pause and consider.” though the true meaning of this word is speculated by many, i have to believe it truly is “pause and consider”. :) random, i know! remember, i am a very random person. ;) but isn’t selah beautiful? tonight pause in consider the goodness of GOD. selah! :)

Lord, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is: that I may know how frail I am.Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before thee: verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah. Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them. And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee.
Psalm 39:4-7

“Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.”
Psalm 32:7

About Rachel

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword"; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 1:18-20

  1. Selah is beautiful in the way you have described it. I never thought of it this way…I always thought of it as a pause or rest in music. I love this. Thanks for sharing. I need to pause and consider more often than I do. :)

    1. (: I need to pause and consider more often too. I think the Lord was telling me this by putting selah on my mind. Thank you for encouraging me with your comment! :)
