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.

Where I'm Reading This Week

Here are a few wonderful places I've visited this week. I hope they bless you as well.

Seeing is Believing or Why Time Mapping is Painful--This is a challenging article on being a good steward of our God-given time.

Chilled--Honest look at how the loss of simple luxuries can make one think of those with no luxuries at all.

Fear Imps--Fear is the lie that says God can't or won't, but the Word says He can and will. Wonderful post of encouragement and faith.

How A Lent That Fails Actually Succeeds--Humbling, powerful...grace.

Silence--Even when there are no answers, there is God.


  1. Jerri,
    I was glad to see your happy face again! Thank you for your encouraging words. And, thank you, too, for these links. I loved the one about Lent as well. We don't even celebrate it (at least not, yet, because it's quite new to us, and I don't know much about the "why"), but the post had the climax I was hoping's all about God's grace!
    Looking forward to checking out your other finds.

  2. Queen Mom, such a joy to have you visit again! Wonderfully enjoyed visiting your "place" this week and being blessed there. It has left me challenged in a wonderful way.

    Be blessed, sister in the Lord! I look forward to seeing you again soon.
