For a few very hard years this word was my mantra.
The word means
-undismayed; not discouraged; not forced to abandon purpose or effort
-undiminished in courage or valor; not giving way to fear
But the truth is, I was often dismayed by everything that had taken place, and I did battle discouragement. I battled fear and doubts. I hurt and was angry, and sometimes "undaunted" sounded more like a mockery than a mantra, and I was determined to be real about all of it in these posts, thus the name, Undaunted Reality. More than that, though, I was determined to live undaunted, not because I'm so great or strong, but because my God is, and no matter what this world looks like, He is the only reality that matters.
I pray I live the reality of Him beautifully undaunted.

Gratitude 22-That It is Only a Dent

Dear God, I am so thankful.

1. Thank you for Psalm 91 that You've led me to pray over my family so many times.

2. Thank you for insurance.

3. Thank you for a driver with the integrity to stop instead of driving away.

4. Thank you for cell phones so Rob could call and let me know he would be late...and let him know he was okay.

5. Thank you that traffic was moving so slowly.

6. Thank you that both people involved were not hurt in way except for nerves.

7. Thank you that if the other man were going to hit someone it was Rob...who is the epitome of grace and not some scary road rage maniac.

8. Thank you for your protection.

9. Thank you for mechanics and body work people with integrity and good reputations.

10. And, Lord, thank you that it is only a dent.


  1. Praising God for His protection and provision!

  2. Amen. So thankful no one was hurt. I've been in some really scary crashes.
