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.

Being Relevant

Dear God,

What do you look like in a hurting world?

You aren't a religious fanatic, but you aren't compliant or complacent aftraid to upset someone's comfort zone.

You love wrecklessly, forgive exuberantly, bless lavishly...but still have a clear code of right and wrong...and grace for when I choose the wrong one.

How do you want to live in me
so people see all those things in you?


  1. Hi Jerri - ooh, good question? God has the highest standards, but because He knows us so well, the greatest capacity for grace! Have an awesome week Jerri
    God bless

  2. Tracy, I keep pondering and asking:

    What do You look like in a hurting world, in my hurting neighborhood, in my hurting family? How do You want to look in me so others really see You?

    The last year has made me question a lot about Christianity and what people see in Jesus' people or if they see Him at all. They are good questions, and I trust Him to give me good answers. :-)

    Hope you are having a glorious week, too!

    Blessings to you, dear one!
