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.

Possibly My Greatest Flaw

"Could it be my greatest flaw is fixating so much on my flaws
that I dismiss or ignore His perfect ability to love me and work in me
while working and loving perfectly through me?"
~from My Journal, Jerri Phillips~

Dear God, work in and love me as You know I need today. Show me Your heart for me and Your desire for me so I can be in agreement with you in action, thought, and word. And, Lord, work and love through me in Your perfection because Your perfection is omnipotent and greater than all my imperfections. Keep eye contact with me, and if I turn my eyes, pull them back to you, because I want to see YOU and all You want to do and not be distracted by all I know Jerri cannot do.

I love you so much. You are my heart, and I am overwhelmed by You.


  1. Hi Kelly - beautiful post. I barely know you but can definitely see you are on a good path with Jesus. I can almost see a smile in your writing.
    :) God bless

  2. Tracy,

    I've always been on a good path with God. It just doesn't always look like people want it to or think it should. The fact is I am in the group with a bunch of honest folks who didn't always like the way the road went. David, Job, Abraham, Moses, Esther...all on the right road. All had questions, all had complaints. All had God. I'm in good company. In fact, I'm in God-company. :-) And, yes! That is a BIG smile!!!
