SELAH

The exact meaning of Selah is unknown. Scholars believe it may be a musical term that means to pause and reflect. So with that thought in mind, I would like end this year by pausing for a moment to reflect and thank the Lord for His goodness and many blessings:

  • Millions upon Millions have been encouraged by my Devotionals.

Moreover, The Greatest Moment has impacted people all across the United States and worldwide. Some of the places include Canada, England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Australia, New Zealand, Palau, Mexico, and several countries in Africa. And those are just a few of the ones I know about; no doubt, there are many others.

In all these things, God deserves the credit and adoration.

Thank you Lord!

I’ve noticed several big-name authors who have won awards in the past entering the contests again, so maybe one award isn’t enough. What, then, is the magic number?

Or maybe it’s a certain amount of positive feedback, a sufficient number of glowing reviews on Amazon or Goodreads, recognition at…
