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 Every Day Life is Daunting

I'm tired of life as usual.

I'm tired of sitting on my butt in my comfy little world when I know I have abilities that can help people.

I know God has His own perfect timing, and I don't want to fight that, but honestly, I wonder how often I live a small life under the excuse of "waiting for God's timing" when I simply do not get off my butt and act with determination, purpose, and fortitude.

I'm writing a book entitled "Warrior Undaunted". Can one be an undaunted warrior without living an undaunted life? More pointedly, am I living the undaunted life I'm supposed to be living, and if not, what do I need to do to engage life fully, with abandon, with passion, and with uncompromising purpose?
