Do we forget the importance of Selah- rest and reflection on God?
We are all so very busy these days. We are rushing for this and rushing for that, the news is depressing and scary, life is crazy and the things that many of us used to make us feel at peace we just don’t have time for. We don’t even have time for God. But God gave us a day to rest and specific times to rest. You say ‘I know the day of rest, Sunday- but what are these times of rest?”
When reading your Bible, have you noticed where it says Selah? Do you know what that means? It means rest and reflect on God and what you just read. Selah is a time of rest. You can stress and rush and worry all you like but it won’t change anything. But time with God will heal you, it will help you focus, it will even help clear your mind and drive your fears away. We need to take time of Selah. We need to not forfeit running to the safe arms of God, it’s the only place you can truly rest.

I am a young woman who grew up in British Columbia. In BC was all I ever wanted; I had my poodle (Max) and all my friends, Saturdays at the Vancouver Aquarium and Sunday afternoons at one of my favorite beaches it was paradise. But God had a different plan for my life and my dad's job landed us in Alberta and now where I remain, in small town Souris Manitoba. The transitions from paradise to prairie were difficult and I will admit that now 10 years later I still refer to home as Abbotsford BC. Through this crazy pathway trek across Canada I have had one true constant, God; and though none of it was easy, everything that has happened in my life has formed in me a true lasting friendship with the one I call Immanuel. Because no matter how far from home we are God is with us, and thanks to God I have found an almost completely over looked beauty in Manitoba. If you open your eyes you will see that God has planted wondrous things everywhere you go.
