To me, perseverance is the ability to wisely keep pushing forward to accomplish my goal when people or situations hold me back. The dictionary definition of perseverance is the steady persistence in the course of action, a purpose, a state, etc., especially despite difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement. Sometimes we all get the feeling of quitting, but if we hang in a little longer, we learn that all things are possible with God and that to stop something (unless it is sinful) is often not the right choice. ~ Bill Greguska

“When the going gets tough, I’m not always sure what you do. I’m not saying that I know how to fix everything when the going gets tough, but I do know this: when the going goes tough, you don’t quit. And you don’t fold up. And you don’t go in the other direction”. ~ John Madden

James 1:12  Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.

Do Not Quit Without Giving It Your Best Shot!

Do Not Quit... You're Closer Than You Think!

Do not quit, especially when things are looking bad!

My mother, coaches, teachers, and others often told me not to quit. But, I can recall twice in my life that I wanted to stop living because of all the pain I was experiencing. The first time was when I was in high school, and the second was when my wife divorced me.  But I thank God that He put outstanding people in my life to encourage me and point me back to the Lord.

I mention this because we all have hit a wall in our life, and you, too, can overcome it with the help of God as I did. Whatever you do, do not quit! Think of it this way: your doubts will starve when you feed your faith. When you feed your doubts, your confidence will starve. It is up to you what you are going to choose to do. I used to tell my kids Chris and Sherry that when they were going through a challenging time growing up, “40 pounds of pain often can give you 400 pounds of gain!

Whether it’s a financial crisis you’re in, a divorce you’ve been through, or an unthinkable sin you’ve committed, don’t ever give in to the thinking that you won’t recover. Nothing seems more discouraging than to think you’ll never get out of the pain, debt, or guilt you’re in. Accepting negative thoughts that pop into your head or seem to haunt you is unnecessary, which comes with tearing down ideas instead of building up. If you focus on them, your thought process tends to spiral down, which opens the door to anger or depression. ~ Bill Greguska



Keep Pushing On…Do Not Quit!




What Has God Promised?

God hath not promised skies always blue,
Flower-strewn pathways all our lives through;
God hath not promised sun without rain,
Joy without sorrow, peace without pain. But God hath promised strength for the day,
Rest for the labor, light for the way,
Grace for the trials, help from above,
Unfailing sympathy, undying love. God hath not promised we shall not know
Toil and temptation, trouble and woe;
He hath not told us we shall not bear
Many a burden, many a care. God hath not promised smooth roads and wide,
Swift, easy travel, needing no guide;
Never a mountain rocky and steep,
Never a river turbid and deep.
~ A.J. Flint




Do Not Quit, But If You Fall, Fall Forward!

Rest if you must, but do not quit. You can never tell how close you are to your goal, so do not stop!



A Little Bit About The Do Not Quit Poem!

The poem below, “Do Not Quit,” has been inspirational since my twenties. I am now in my fifties and still love it. I love it so much that I even put it on my evangelistic business cards to pass out to people. The words are real and can speak right to every reader at some point! 

When this poem talks about not quitting, I pray that people take that a little more seriously regarding marriage, friendships, jobs, or any other type of commitment. We must focus on those three simple words, “Do not quit.”

As coach Bear Bryant once said, “Never quit. It is the easiest cop-out in the world. Set a goal, and don’t quit until you attain it. When you attain it, set another goal, and don’t quit until you reach it. Never quit.”




Do Not Quit Poem Is Inspirational.“When things go wrong, as they sometimes will when the road you’re trudging seems all uphill. When funds are low and the debts are high, you want to smile, but you have to sigh; when care is pressing you down a bit, Rest if you must, but don’t want to smile, but you have to sigh, when care is pressing you down a bit, Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

Life is strange with its twists and turns, as every one of us sometimes learns, And many a failure would turn about when you might have won if you would have stuck it out. So don’t give up. Though the pace seems slow, you may succeed with another blow.

Success is failure turned inside out, The silver tint of the clouds of doubt, and you never can tell how close you are; it may be near when it seems afar; So stick to the fight when you’re the hardest hit; it’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.”
