Selah. An interesting word, a Hebrew word. One which usually means to pause, to stop and reflect. Something we so need in our busy, hectic world, don’t we? And so…
As you may know, my husband and I are missionaries here in the Bel Paese of Italy. A lovely place to live with people who have stolen our hearts.
But sadly, the Italian people, as a whole, don’t read a lot. And not just the Scriptures, but anything. So I’ve made an Italian version of this blog too, hoping it will whet their appetite to get into the Scriptures more.
Hence the name change. Maybe (hopefully) something less formal or theological sounding won’t scare them off quite so much. That, at least, is my hope and prayer. Please join me in it!
Salt makes us thirsty and I hope this blog will make both English and Italian readers thirsty. Thirsty for God’s Word. And thirsty for him and those selah moments with him.
Sheila’s Selah is a reminder to pause and learn — to listen to his heart, learn his ways, and love as he loves.
Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! (Psalm 46:10)
