Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.
(James 1:1)

It’s simple: If you’re doing a right thing, don’t give up!
Trials are part of it, just because it was hard the first time doesn’t mean it’s time to quit or stop trying. Some of the best things in life are the result of many times of trying and failing.
Call that customer again.
Run through the process and steps again.
Choose to treat someone well, even if they didn’t show you the same courtesy.
Get up and face the day with the same fervor as yesterday.
With more fervor!
Believe in your cause. Know the right from wrong. Choose moral fiber. Learn from history, but don’t live in it. God has equipped us with what we need to face our individual challenges; we need to only trust him and become implicitly attached to his design for what he wants us to accomplish.

Oh Father, please give me the tenacity to fulfill your cause. You are my sword and shield. You are beside me in everything I do. Thanks to you, anything is possible.
