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.

Beyond Happy

I wish I had words to tell you about my happy right now, but I don't, so let me just wrap it in a bundle and say I am forever overwhelmed by the amazing people who love me and the depth of that love and forever left humbled by my Father God's attention to my smallest prayer or the ways He holds what is dear to me as the dearest thing to Him.

Tonight I am more than happy. I am...full...

Wondrously, divinely, perfectly...full.


  1. That makes me wildly happy! I was thinking about you last night when I was reading Max Davis' "Desperate Dependence". Max said to think about those people in your life who are like that spring in the desert times, and you are certainly that for me! Love you bunches and tons!

  2. Mizzbrizz, you humble me. Love you, too, my friend!
