Selah By the Sea
Meaning of Selah
Selah originates from a Hebrew word meaning to measure or weigh in the balances, to consider deeply, to lift up or to praise. It is difficult to capture Selah’s meaning into words. Used over 70 times in the poetic book of psalms, Selah is a mysterious word. Yet captivatingly beautiful. It’s an exclamation, a call. It’s the chance to stop, an interlude. To reflect, to meditate, to ponder, to take enough time to enjoy, to take a moment and stop, to let it soak, to pause, to celebrate, to realize the beauty of, to extract the meaning of, to be thankful for, to take a break and breathe, to appreciate, to contemplate, to be refreshed by and to let it sink into your soul. In this go, go, go world, we all need a chance to slow down, to take a minute to stop, ponder and reflect on the beauty all around us.
This is a movement to Selah life.
To stop, to reflect.
To see the beauty in the world around us and to savor it.
To see life more simply and to live life more richly.
