The Book ✯✯✯✯
Kristen Kill's voice is authentic as she walks you through her own experience in finding selah while using Scripture to encourage your own journey into Christ's peace and rejuvenation.
I rarely come across a book, even devotionals I have picked out specifically, that seem to speak to my very soul. Finding Selah, though, hit me in the deepest recesses of my heart. Kill is a mother that remembers how hectic bringing up little ones can be, she also has an identity away from "MOM" and that life outside of that title is just as grinding.
Through thoughtful quotes, we are encouraged to get into the Word to examine what it means to find mindful peace and rest. That Selah in the Psalms is an instructional verb, not a noun. To take a beat, to find a rest, to listen in the silence. Some of the most profound:
Somewhere between majesty and misery, heaven finds us in the barren wilderness of our deepest longings.
The echoes of Eden breathes into a dry and weary world and called out to dry bones to wake and to walk, to taste and to see what was good and right and lovely, to keep the feast.
The pause, the rest, the interlude is Jesus. Selah and Sabbath are a person.
Within these pages, you will find permission to rest and encouragement to move. You will find peace, and it is a beautiful thing that emerges.
