WOW! When I recently read this acronym of the word “persevere,” my insides leapt up and down, cheering “YESSSSS!”

Let it soak into you and see how it connects to you!

Persist no matter what.
Endure discomfort.
Request help.
Steadfastly hold on to your beliefs and values.
Envision triumph.
Very consistently keep at it.
Embrace adversity as your teacher.
Refuse to give up.
Enjoy and celebrate every tiny bit of progress!

Cast all your cares and anxieties on the Lord, for He cares for you (I Peter 5:7)…He’ll give you the strength you need to persevere.
