Adjective: Not intimidated or discouraged by difficulty, danger, or disappointment. 

"It takes Almighty grace to take the next step when there is no vision and no spectator - 
the next step in devotion, the next step in your study, in your reading, in your kitchen;
the next step in your duty...
  It takes far more of the grace of God, far more conscious drawing upon God to take that step, than it does to preach the  Gospel."

"Every Christian has to partake of what was the essence of the Incarnation, he must bring the thing down into flesh and blood actualities and work it out through the finger tips.  "

"We flag when there is no vision, no uplift, but just the common round, the trivial task.  
The thing that tells in the long run for God and for men is the steady persevering work in the unseen, and the only way to keep the life uncrushed is to live looking to God.  "

"Ask God to keep the eyes of your spirit open to the Risen Christ, and it will be impossible for drudgery to damp you. "

"Drudgery is one of the finest touchstones of character there is.  Drudgery is work that is very far removed from anything to do with ideal- the utterly mean grubby things; and when we come in contact with them we know instantly whether or not we are spiritually real.  

"Undaunted radiance is not built on anything passing, but on the love of God that nothing can alter"
Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest
