Perseverance is defined as keeping at something in spite of discouragement, difficulties, or opposition. Persevering through hardship for any length of time is easier said than done and requires discipline and assistance to do so in a positive manner.
Below are four basic elements to help you positively persevere:
“Take the old prophets as your mentors. They put up with anything, went through everything, and never once quit, all the time honoring God. What a gift life is to those who stay the course! You’ve heard, of course, of Job’s staying power, and you know how God brought it all together for him at the end. That’s because God cares, cares right down to the last detail.” – James 5:10-11, MSG
