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.

The Very Breath of Me--Ponderings

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen--Philippians 4:23
The joy, pleasure, and that which creates delight in you being received from and having everything to do with the Lord Jesus Christ be your very breath. (part 1)

In the other vein....

The absolutely free expression of God's loving-kindness to you manifested in the gift of the Lord Jesus Christ be your very breath.

Daddy, I'm pondering this, and I'm trying to let it get deep into my spirit and affect change in my mind and soul, but I need help to overcome all my ideas of what "joy in the Lord" means. I need your pure heart on this. I need your revelation. Open my heart and mind to hear and know. Lord, speak, apply, train me in whatever way is necessary for this to become daily DNA expression in my life. I don't want this to be something I learn. I want it to be something I live.
