Pause , and think calmly about that .

An argument with your spouse ?

Be the bigger person , and Selah .

A disagreement with your Boss ?

Humble yourself , and Selah .

News of a loved one in the ICU , when minutes prior she was having the latest pan pizza with you ?

Selah .

First attempt at cooking , and the resultant burnt ( not baked ! ) potatoes screaming for attention ?

A definite Selah .

A vision too grand , too big for you ?

Trust and Selah .

An unexpected fracture in your God ordained relationship?

Selah . Pray . Selah .

Chaos at home ?

Selah ( even if you’re the only one to ) !

Creating authentic art ?

Selah Selah Selah .

Doing life on your own terms ?

Selah and reconsider .

An ex convict but wanting to rebuild ?

Selah . And let nothing stop you .

Relocating to the countryside so your family and pets have room to breathe , grow and play ?

Selah , and move !

Time to birth that God given dream ?

Selah . Dig deep . Do it .

Writing an article and don’t quite know where it’s going ?

Selah . Trust . Continue .


In the overwhelmingly noisy and busy world we live in , one comes across , in the course of a lifetime , as many situations as perhaps there are grains in the sand , or maybe that’s an exaggeration?

Maybe not.

Whatever the scenario ,

I believe ,  instead of impulsively reacting to every situation that demands our attention, if we can incorporate the simple yet effective habit of simply taking a moment to ” Selah” ( pause , and think calmly about that ) ,

not only would we experience more fruitfulness in a decision made in the stillness of time and the clarity that can come only as a result of such a sacrifice , but we would indefinitely be able to tap into the deeper recesses of our being , and thereby , have the FULL ASSURANCE that whatever we have decided stems from the roots of our belief system or faith structure , a magnificence that can be accessed only if we permit ourselves that simple gift : 

Stillness in a moment of Selah .
