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.

From my journal...My Side of the Promise

Each one will be like a refuge from the wind
and a shelter from the storm,
like streams of water in the desert
and the shadow of a great rock in a thirsty land.
Isaiah 32:2

Lord, guide my thoughts and impart wisdom and understanding so I know your heart and vision for these words.

Remove all filters, theology, doctrine, and Jerri-ness that stands in the way of your word coming to fruition. If anything in my thinking  or belief system taints this or alters it in even the slightest way, remove that error from me.

Lead my steps and renew my mind so that your word does not return void but returns in the absolute filled-fullness for which you sent it forth. Lord, when this span of time for which this word is spoken is finished, I pray that not one person whose life should have been touched would be unaltered.

Lord, may this word invade this world with all the fullness of your power and your intent.

Dear Lord, maybe I be nothing that you would be everything.
