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.

Resurrection--What It Means Everyday

Spent time this morning studying the word "resurrect".

surr--to move from a low place to a high place

We all started in a high place and fell to a low place. Through the sacrific of Christ, we are giving the option to choose the high place again.

Annoyingly, we can still fall...
...into old patterns
...old mindset
...old identity

When Jesus offered the wine and bread of the Last Supper, He said, "Do this to remember Me."
Remember in Me, you always have the option.

Wherever you are, however far you've fallen...He remains...and so does the option to choose Him...and be restored to the high place with Him.
