It was a foggy morning in Cades Cove... just the kind that I hope for when photographing at sunrise. As I rounded the corner at the Missionary Baptist Church, the low fog, rising sun and hanging branches produced a glorious stream of colorful and mesmerizing light rays. My mind went immediately to the glory of God and His majesty, radiance and presence in that place.
The Lord is God, and He has made His light shine on us. (Psalm 118:27a) You are radiant with light, more majestic than mountains... (Psalm 76:4)
Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. (1 Chronicles 29:11a)
Light: luminous, bright, energy, ablaze
Radiant: resplendent, splendor, brilliance
Majestic: magnificent, regal, royal, kingly, imperial, noble
That's my Lord and I belong to Him! He shines His light of grace, love, glory, mercy, forgiveness, wisdom, power and compassion on me continually. Wow!
