Quench not the Spirit


"Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise, in light inaccesible, hid from our eyes."


One Sunday morning soon after sunrise I stepped outside. What I saw brought a tremendous feeling of awe! The scene reminded me of what it is like to live in God’s presence and have nothing hid from Him. Through His Spirit and His word, God wants to show us the right way. May God bless you today with the joyfulness and peace that come as we quench not the Spirit.

    Magnificent, David! I love the rays of sun. You’re becoming an amazing photographer!

    I’m so excited that I’ll be able to enjoy a wonderful West Virginia morning myself in just a couple days.

    Beautiful photo there David! Light is truly a remarkable phenomena that can be a challenge to capture in photography but when done so with excellence creates such a awe-inspiring display of the majesty of our creative Creator. Thank you for posting such a photo David!

    Great picture. Nothing is like the early morning (especially in fall and winter).
