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 You Have to Stop but the World Can't

I have not liked the flu, head cold, or pneumonia.
And I certainly have not liked having them back to back.
But, I've liked some of the changes those things have required.

The world having to go on without me is a good thing.
It lets the world know they are okay without me
and gives me freedom to be okay not always being needed by them.

This is good stuff.
