Selah—for your soul

Feb 22, 2022 | 0 comments

Selah!*

Take a moment to allow yourself to get comfortable, whether sitting or standing. Take a deep breath, and then another. If it feels comfortable place a hand on your heart. Allow yourself the gift of this moment to pause and be. 

Be still and know

that I am God

  an invitation…

Slow down

Permission to take time

  What do you notice?

Pay attention

Listen

  What do you want?

Take time

Breathe deep

  What do you long for?

Longings unearthed

Linger

  Selah!

Be still and know

I am here

  Presence

I am with you

Now

  Together

Surrender—

Let go

  Rest

Simply be

Selah!

(*Selah is a Hebrew word found in Psalms. While there is no agreed upon translation, it has been attributed to the idea of “to pause and reflect” which is how I am using it here.)

If you have time, allow yourself to linger even longer. You can set a timer for 5-10 minutes and allow yourself to sit, lie down, and simply be here with God. I find that placing one hand on my heart, and one on my belly helps me to experience a sense of being held and grounded in the present moment. The biggest obstacle (I believe) is giving ourselves permission to slow down and refrain from a productivity mindset. 

Share your experience below (even if it was not “positive”!)


Christ died for your sins . . . but sometimes it’s tricky to sort out healthy guilt, unhealthy guilt, and shame, especially as a cross-cultural worker. Knowing the difference is good, but it’s only the first step. Now what? In this workshop Shonna will help you identify what you are experiencing (healthy? or unhealthy?) but even more, what to DO about it. Don’t jump over this crucial 102 piece of the equation. Get the workshop for 50% off before the end of the month.
