The meaning of this word, Selah, is unknown. It is used 70+ times in the Bible throughout the Psalms and a few times in the book of Habakkuk. Often used as a resting point, a place to stop and pause, possibly praise, before continuing on.
We have so much to be thankful for here at Self-Talk the Gospel. This blog has been up and running for nearly 3 years. We have heard story after story of how this little space on the internet has brought freedom, encouragement and grace. We’ve recounted God’s faithfulness through His son Jesus in nearly every article. Many have learned to battle shame, guilt, isolation, and more through the words shared on this site.
We have grown in our ability to discern the lies from the Truth, especially the lies we tell ourselves, in the secret places of our hearts and minds.
We have grown in our ability to discern the lies from the Truth, especially the lies we tell ourselves, in the secret places of our hearts and minds. Most of all, we created a community where it was safe to share those places and encourage each other to cover ALL that we struggle with and suffer through with the Gospel.
God’s grace is truly sufficient in our weakness.
As we approach summer and started to dream and pray for the next year, we realized rather than move forward with plans and ideas, we were sensing a season of rest . . . a time to pause . . . a few months to break before moving forward.
So this summer, during the months of June, July, and August, STG will be taking a sabbatical. Our blog will remain live and all articles will be available, but we will not be running any new content, accepting guest posts, sharing content on social media, or sending out emails to our subscribers. We are going to rest, pause, wait, and listen.
We plan on enjoying a small break, praying, seeking God’s will and vision for STG and our next steps. We will follow Jesus into this season of Selah and enjoy His yoke that is easy and His burden that is light.

As we enter into this rest, we would love to hear how STG has influenced you and encouraged you. Leave a comment below! And please, pray for us as we listen and rest this summer.
