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 my Heart isn't so Impressive, He Still Is


I need to talk to you. I have several writing things I need to get done today, things people have asked me to do, and I am honored. I know, oh, I *KNOW* that you opened these doors and gave me this favor, and I am disgusted to tell you this, but I'm struggling with words because...I'm struggling with wanting to impress these people. In fact, I'm more wound up about impressing them than I am conveying YOU, and all of us know you are everything. They've asked me to do this because they trust I do convey you. So, Daddy, help me. The enemy is trying to steal my focus and my Truth. He is trying to steal my Source by telling me all the things *I* am not. I'm not witty enough or eloquent like this other person. I declare right now that I am Jerri, a daughte of the Almighty King who fully equips me for EVERY good purpose for which HE has called me. I am a masterpiece, and I was made just for this moment. I am fully yours. I hear you. I serve you only, and you are faithful to give me the words and the heart for exactly what you desire to say. Thank you for being wholly for me and with me and never condemning me when I have to kill my flesh yet again. I love you, Daddy. Amen
