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.

Because Sometimes I Look in the Mirror...and See a Prostitute

Jennifer over at Getting Down with Jesus is one of the places I like to visit. She speaks to where I live, and honestly, it is nice to have the company.

I wanted to share one of her recent posts that spoke right to my heart on the day it came through. It was one of those days when the failures were numerous, the memories relentless, and the need to be found overwhelming. It was one of those days when I looked in the mirror...and saw a prostitute.

If you ever have one of those days, you need to read Jennifer's post about The Day a Kid Asked Me about "That Prostitute."
