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.

Soul Whisperings--Oh, Heart, Don't Give Way to Fear

Oh, Heart, do not give way. Not now. You have put this in His hands. You have put yourself in His hands. Do you think your frailty is bigger than His faithfulness? Heart, hold steady. This has never been about your perfection. It has always been about His power. It isn't about your ability to always get the steps right. It's about His ability to redeem even the steps you get wrong. Do not falter here, Heart. Do not give way to fear that you got it irrevocably wrong. Hide yourself in the Truth that even when you are horribly human, He is still irrepressibly God.
