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.

Prayer--Everything You Have Been for Me...

I love you.

I don't have words. My mind is simply reeling with the monstrous obstacles people I know and their loved ones are facing. Health, protection, relationships...Daddy, we can do nothing. There is no human way. We don't have the medical wisdom. We don't have the omnipotence. We can't make people do the right thing. If you do not invade these situations, they are hopeless.

Love always hopes.
Love always protects.
Love always believes.
Love never fails.

Daddy, be the greatest lover imaginable in these situations.

Hear me. Oh, Daddy, HEAR ME!

I'm on my knees, and I am confessing our desperate need. You never turn away people who need you. You never turn me away. You NEVER turn me away. Daddy, hear me.

I am asking you to be more than I know what to ask. I am asking you to be everything needed. I get focused on the need for physical healing, but you know the heart healing. You know the courage needed to face the giant. You know the love these people need to feel. You know how to speak it. You know how to lead them out of the dark place. You know everything. Daddy, I'm just asking you to be everything. I'm asking you to be the giant slayer. I'm asking you to be courage in every piece of them. I am asking you to be the victory cry in the nightmare. I'm asking you to be the peace in the worst part of the storm. I am asking you to be everything your Daddy heart wants to be for those you love in these situations.

Everything you have been for me, be for them.

Daddy...everything you have been for me...EVERYTHING YOU HAVE BEEN FOR for them.

Thank you...I am...your love leaves me speechless...thank you.

I love you.
