May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Romans 15:5‭-‬6, ESV

VerseD: Romans 15:4

For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.
Romans 15:4, ESV

In my failures You won’t walk out
You’re great love will lead me through

My lighthouse
Shining in the darkness I will follow You

Safe to shore

You are the peace in my troubled sea
