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.

How to Be on a Madness-Coming-Down Monday

Good morning, mind. Already racing with the to dos of the week? yeah, I've seen the list, and maybe you are wondering how the out of you stuff will get done when the inside of you stuff is jumbled and trying to find its way. Hard road. So let's stop racing altogether. Forget the to do list and to fix list and to simply survive list. Remember your to be list:
Be loved.
Be valuable.
Be provided for.
Be awed by the good things.
Be open to acts of kindness.
Be gentle with yourself.
Be the favorite of the King.
Be ardent in refusing to be anything other than what He says you are.
