SELAH MOMENTS | Digital Bible Study
SELAH MOMENTS | Sacred Pauses for your Soul by Aimee Walker
Life is busy and the constant demands on us can feel overwhelming. Amid the blur of frenzy, it’s easy to lose heart and clarity.
Slowing down feels like a luxury we can’t afford and in all the noise, we no longer know how to be present with God and in what He is doing in our lives. The result is we can end up feeling like a spectator of our own life rather than an active mindful participant.
The Psalmists beckon our awareness, inviting us to Selah. Some 73 times, the Psalms are punctuated by this curious and often oddly-placed term. Rather than forming an integral part of the narrative, Selah was a technical, musical directive that allowed for a pause—an interruption to, or an accentuation of, the lyrics. Selah pauses were designed to give us a moment to stop and ponder the importance and truth of what had just been said.
In this two-week study, we’ll explore the first twelve of the Selah Psalms, digging into their background and the specific uses of these intentional sacred pauses. We’ll accept the authors’ invitations to break and reflect on the written words and our own narratives, as well as the beauty of God’s activity in them.
We’ll learn the beautiful paradox that pausing doesn’t actually halt progress, but rather gives unexpected life and harmony to the chaos around us. Selah is a vital means of engaging in the presence of God, no matter our circumstances.

Laurie Robinson –
In the summer season, when group studies usually break, I was unusually empty and seeking additional study with community. This was my first study with Joyful Life and I have already ordered and received another. I was fulfilled by the study materials as well as the daily videos. The lessons are quite manageable to complete on a daily basis and the content is Biblical and authentic…some things I found lacking with recent studies that received more mainstream attention. This is definitely the type of study I sought after and received!
