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.

My Soul, He has You

Humble yourself before the Lord--acknowledge Him as the Lord God Almighty, the one with all the answers and the power to bring them to pass--and in due time, He will lift you up (restore you, accomplish what He desires, fulfill His promises, bless you because He loves you, and give you tears of joy instead of trial). Cast all your anxiety on Him (all the things in your heart that you desire so greatly but can't see how they can ALL come to pass) for He care for you (and knows what is best for you and what will truly fill your soul)--1 Peter 5:6-7

Endeavoring to be humble instead of anxious because I know my Lord's heart. Not one word of His promises fails. He withholds no good thing from those who love Him. Humble...not anxious...oh, Lord, whisper how to humble...when I hear your voice, how can I be anxious?
