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.

Big Smile

It rained today.



  1. YEA!! It's raining here today, too. I love the rain! Makes for good reading and napping times.

  2. Yay!!!! I'm soooo happy for you guys!!

    BIG Happy hugs!!

    Love you, sweet friend!

  3. It's about a month late for this comment but I woke up to the sound of the rain at 3am.

    And with it came such a flood of emotions and I cried my heart out while it rained outside.

    My heart is still heavy from last week and as if the my tears were just dying to come out reminding me it's okay to cry sometimes.

    I don't have to always be strong and was convicted that His power is made perfect in my weakness. So I will cry and let it out and come to His throne where I know He will listen to me and take my burden, replace it with His yoke because His is easy and light.



  4. You are so courageous! I am so honored to know you!!!

    Yes, His power is released because you have the courage to drag your weak self up there and say, “Daddy, pour into me and shoot through all the broken and weak parts. Show off who you are where there is none of me to take the credit or to get in your way.”

    So beautiful you are to Him. Such the sacrifice He desires. Such the precious aroma. He breathes you in and breathes Himself into you.

    Wondrous, glorious faith to let Him love you so deeply…so trust Him so completely.

    Thank you for being the example of life poured out, consumed, and used mightily. You bless me deep!

    Blessings…rich, to the core of your soul, wondrous and overwhelming blessings be to you, woman of God!
