Selah is a Hebrew word that is used multiple times in the Bible, in Genesis, the Psalms and the book of Habakkuk, and it has several meanings. One of them is ‘a break’, another one is ‘catch a breath’ or ‘praise God’. In the Psalms, the word Selah is seen as a marker of a break for the singers, for example at the end of a verse.
Selah Counseling wants to offer these breaks, a time to stand still and reflect on life as it is and to give yourself a chance to get closer to yourself and others. And a break to get closer to Home for those who have wandered for because of whatever happened to them.
The lighthouse in the logo points to the beacon of light we need in the storms of life. The song ‘My lighthouse’ by Rend Collective is about God who is our resting place in the stormy seas. In this way, we also hope to shine our light, as we can read in John 9 and Matthew 5.
Jesus: ‘I am the light of the world.’
~ John 9: 5
Jesus: ‘You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. In this way let your light shine before men.’
~ Matthew 5: 14 and 16a
