A NASA astronaut aboard the International Space Station who made headlines in November reveals space photos with Bible verse.
In November, Victor Glover blasted to the International Space Station in the SpaceX Crew Dragon’s capsule Resilience. He is the first African American to go on a long-term mission. Victor also made headlines after revealing that the man brought a Bible and communion cups with him onboard. The Christian astronaut said he wanted to kindle his faith even in space.
And indeed, today, Victor’s faith continues to burn bright as he shares God’s Word in a recent post on Instagram and Twitter Wednesday. He wrote, “Took these photos today, I love sunrises and sunsets. Can you see the bands of color?”
The NASA astronaut posted photos of the sun beaming above the earth’s horizon, saying how it reminds him of a particular Scripture.
“They remind me of the scripture in Psalm 30, “weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.” It seems darkest just before sunrise. I wish you all love and light,” he added.

Keeping The Fire Burning
In an interview with the Christian Chronicle last year, Victor shared his worship time in space. He said, “I will probably continue in what we’ve been doing: virtual service, virtual giving, reading my Bible and praying.”
The Christian wanted to keep his fire burning for the Lord, even in space. Moreover, he also admitted that he is aware of the dangers that accompany his NASA mission. But his job helped him put his life in perspective.
“This time has really helped me to focus on what really is most important,” he told the Christian Chronicle. “What do I really have to be doing right now? And I realized how important it is that I really make sure that my family is not just prepared for this mission, but is prepared for life.”
“That’s what a parent’s job is – understanding the role of God in my life, and God’s authority and my submission to that, and the love and support and encouragement that that can create in my life.”
