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.

Hardcore Faith

"Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see."

This sounds so "nice" and "pretty".
I don't need "nice" and "pretty" faith.

I need hardcore, withstand the onslaught faith,
the kind that keeps me solid when
I'm standing in front of an avalanche barreling at me,
knowing I can do nothing in my own power to stop it,
and trusting God is going to make it go around me in some way
--or dig me out safely--
because He said next week He has something for me to do.
