“May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” ~ Romans 15:5-6

I was just doing some reading tonight and these few verses stuck out to me.  God gives us the gifts of endurance and encouragement.  We need it.  He knows the road is going to be hard, the journey is going to be long and the nights are going to be restless.

So he puts people in our lives to walk with us.  Not because they’re entirely on the same route, but because they can help us along the way.

We were never meant to walk this road alone.

Today I’m just thankful for those that have been placed in my path offering strength when I have none and encouraging me to give just a little more when I feel like there is nothing left.
