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.

When our world changed so suddenly, a lot of "friends" suddenly disappeared. WonderGirl said it was as though they thought we had cooties and if they got too close, they could catch them.

A few months ago, our family had multiple conversations concerning homosexuality and how Christians act like homosexuals have cooties and if we get too close, we might catch them.

I'm a Christian. I adhere to the Word of God that says homosexuality is a sin.

I'm a sinner that prays for grace and mercy...and wants to be loved anyway.

Too often Christians forget that last part. We are so busy being Bible-advocates we forget to be Jesus-livers.*

Jesus wasn't afraid of cooties. Whether they be divorce cooties, orphan cooties, adulterous cooties, tax collector cooties...or homosexual cooties...whatever they were, He was all in. He loved passionately.

At our house, we are asking how to be to be all and all...or maybe that is love FOR all.

The following is a PROFOUND article by a pastor who learned to being hated.

In my opinion, if you are a Christian, it's a must read.

If you are a homosexual, Jesus loves you, and that isn't my opinion. That is fact.

The Gay Community and that One Time Jesus Called Me the N-word.

*So you know...No. Not Jesus-lOvers. Jesus-lIvers. You know. Folks who LIVE like Jesus. Can't live like Him if you don't love like Him, and if you don't love like Him, then what exactly are you living? Yeah. Jesus-livers.
