That was me, last night. The worst case of vertigo I've ever had...and it lasted for hours - into the wee hours of this morning. Even now I'm cautious how I move lest I bring it back. It was awful and I was so, so sick. There was my Sweet Hubby, now helping me because I was a bone-breaking disaster just looking for a place to happen.
I just kept praying, "Lord - HELP please! How can I take care of my husband when I can't even walk on my own?" All through the restless night I cried out to Jesus in my thoughts...and sometime toward dawn I rolled over and my head didn't swim. I opened my eyes and the room wasn't revolving. Yes! Thank you Lord! I sat on the edge of the bed and tested my balance. Seemed shaky but steady. Good! Came downstairs on wobbly legs and just spent some time in the dark being thankful.
"I was crying to the Lord with my voice, and He answered me from His holy mountain. Selah." Psalm 3:4Ever wonder about the word "Selah?" We see it throughout the Book of Psalms. Here is one man's explanation:
"Selah, [celah], is from the primary Hebrew root word [calah] which means 'to hang,' and by implication to measure (weigh). This is readily understood because in Biblical history, money, food and other valuables were 'weighed' by hanging or suspending them on a type of balance (the equivalent of our measuring scale) to determine their value. We find an example of this word [calah] as it is literally translated 'valued,' in the book of Job, indicating that which is measured.
As we know, this word is extensively used in the Psalms. And the reason is because the psalms are a prayer book, divinely-inspired songs of the people of Israel, often messianic, allegorical, and historically parabolic. That is to say, history, replete with spiritual meanings. The Selah is there to signal the believer to 'measure' carefully the meaning of what has been said. i.e., here is wisdom, reflect and understand. Just as the Hebrew word Amen [amen] is an exclamation of confidence or truth and certainty of what has been said, so Selah [celah], is an exclamation that we should measure and reflect upon what has been said."
