E ndurance:

The Ability to Hold On When Everything Around You is Crashing to the Ground

Latin:   indurare, to make hard, from in in and durus, hard

To bear, to suffer with patience, to last

When You Come to the End of the Rope,  Tie a Knot in it and HOLD ON!

Jude 3   Beloved ones, making all diligence to write to you about the common salvation, I had need to write to you to exhort you to contend earnestly for the faith once given over to the saints.

To put up a hard fight for:   Lit. to be struggling upon

1 Timothy 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith. Lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and confessed the good confession before many witnesses,

Luke 9:62   But Jesus said to him, No one putting his hand on the plow, and looking at the things behind, is fit for the kingdom of God.

Hebrews 10:38, 39   “But the just shall live by faith;” “and if he draws back,” “My soul is not well-pleased in him.” Hab. 2:4; Zeph. 1:6; Mal. 1:10
39 But we are not of a drawing back to destruction, but of faith, to the preservation of the soul.
