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--Remembering You are Important When You are Inconsequential

How do you know you are having an impact and making a difference? Just count the number of times in the last 3 days the enemy has told you how inconsequential you are, how no one cares about you, how no one reads anything you write or listens to anything you say, and how if you just turned off the computer or phone and went to bed no one would ever miss you at all.

Tally marks running off the page yet?
Then deep breath, Soul, and march on.
You have a world to impact.
