For example:

Although there was an earthquake, my house did not collapse.

Although there was an earthquake, my house [positive action verb].

I've considered "withstood," but it sounds strange to me on its own: "My house withstood the earthquake" is fine, but "Although there was an earthquake, my house withstood" sounds kind of clunky without an object.

Thank you!

The best word I can think of for that particular situation is endured. If you're willing to go with a phrase instead, you can use something like stood strong.

My house was untouched, unaffected, impervious

A positive action verb might be: survived [unscathed].
