Taking A Selah Moment...

*excerpted from the 12/16 reading of Our Daily Bread*

"......take a 'Selah moment' to pause and worship God during the day.

  • Be silent and listen to the voice of God (Psalm 46:10)

  • Pause from a hectic schedule to be refreshed in spirit (Psalm 42:1-2)

  • Interrupt the day to do a spiritual inventory and be cleansed (Psalm 51:1-10)

  • Accentuate the joy of God's provision through thanksgiving (Psalm 65:9-13)

  • Exalt the name of God for answered prayer in spite of disappointment (Psalm 40:1-3)

  • End the day by reflecting on the Lord's faithfulness (Psalm 119:148)"

Thought for Today...

Compassion is love in action!

Lord, when I learn that someone is hurting.
Help me know what to do and to say;
Speak to my heart and give me compassion,
Let Your great love flow through me today.
- K. De Haan

"Ask the Holy Spirit to place someone on your heart to help in Jesus' name. Then take action. Make a difference today. Send a card. Give a gift. Offer a ride. Make a call. Love in deed is love indeed."
-Dave Branon
