There is a place of rest and a depth of life when we speak a blessing.
Yet, it is here in the stillness of our whisper, as we utter forth the reverence of the Holy, where blessing originates.
In the expanse of the universe only One Name carries the significance that rehearses wonder and invokes the creative power that majesty precedes.
And then there is a moment where we pause and we think on this.
A Selah Moment…
and then we bow,
He holds the world in the very palm of His hand and we bring Him near as we speak His Name.
He stabilizes and sets aright bringing order in the chaos of our living, establishing over and over the promise of hope that is found at the very breath that forms as His name leaves our hearts.
… and the moment is clearly marked
as mercy finds its route
A Selah moment…
and then we bow,
We give praise and thanks to You, O God, we praise and give thanks;
Your wonderous works declare that Your Name is near
and they who invoke Your Name rehearse Your wonders.
When the earth totters, and all the inhabitants of it,
it is I Who will poise and keep steady its pillars.
Praying for your moments to be full of pause and rejoicing, remembering His beauty, and rehearsing His wonders as you speak His name in reverent worship.

thanks dawn for your post. another post on the importance of trusting GOD. but i don’t think there are too many on this topic!
it seems we have quite a few who find that taking the time to be quiet and think about what has just been said during worship (private or public) is difficult and takes practice for sure!
Your photo and post is a lovely pairing. Visiting from Lisha’s link up.
Dawn, I so enjoyed this post. It reminded me of something I read last night in 24/6 by Matthew Sleeth MD (a wonderful book if you have not read it!). He wrote, “Jumping off the hamster wheel once a week allows us to think about who we are, why we exist, and why we were made.” Those Selah moments, the pauses in life, are most important for us to remember – to remember Him. Have a blessed Sunday!
This is soul-filling, Dawn. Thank you. It reminds me of the verse in Colossians (I think) “in him we live, and move and breath and have our being.” That kind of living is poetic, deep, and rich. I see that living reflected in your post.
“He stabilizes and sets aright bringing order in the chaos of our living, establishing over and over the promise of hope that is found at the very breath that forms as His name leaves our hearts.” I love this post. Every word. Thanks for sharing Dawn.
So beautiful – the photo and the words – yes – “There is a place of rest and a depth of life when we speak a blessing” – I want to soak in that thought!
Yes, we do. We give praise and thanks to Him. That’s the only way we can survive in our present-day world. And I truly love your flowery photo. Made me filled with joy as I saw it. Thanks much!
Oh, I love that wording – “rehearse”! Thanks for sharing!
