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.

Live the Priceless Gift You Are

Do you have any idea how much you are needed? Do you understand that you are on this planet because you are an answer?

 I don't care what your parents, siblings, teachers, ex-whatevers, or anyone else said.

The only thing of ANY importance is that YOU ARE HERE.

That tells me a perfect God with a divine plan says you are priceless. HE chose you. Just like you are. With all the things you do well and all the ways you aren't what you might think you should be or wish you were. HE CHOSE YOU. He created you. He has said you are vital to this world. YOU ARE AN ANSWER, not just to someone's prayer, but to a need recognized by God Himself. It's okay to know that and to live and to enjoy it. God gave you life because you are priceless, and He wants you to live the priceless life you are.
