A String of Selah Pearls - Psalm 62:8

Positioned gracefully across the Book of Psalms is a string of seventy-one pearls, lovely beads of wisdom followed by the admonition SELAH which means, “Pause, think on these things, meditate.”

Psalm 62:8 “Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. Selah.”


Are we to trust him some times . . . when we feel like it . . . or at all times? How about when there’s no money left and payday is a week away? The cupboards are nearly bare. A couple of bills have not been paid. You’re worrying about the power being shut off, and you have just learned that your job status is insecure.

As a result of corporate downsizing, Sandra ended up on the streets homeless. Living out of a car, not knowing where her next meal was coming from, she continued to trust God anyway. She poured out her heart to him, sought him as her refuge.

Where is she now? She is off the streets and getting back on her feet. Though she would never have chosen this pathway, Sandra has ended up with a new confidence, both in herself and in God.

Through Sandra’s testimony of God’s grace in a difficult time, she encourages others to keep on trusting in his unfailing love and his promise of a future and a hope. God is our refuge, and he makes all things beautiful, in his time.
