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--When You aren't Sure Where You Are

Dear Heart,

Don't get lost in the illusion.

Wild panic is not the time to go running wildly down a path unknown.

You don't know if you've missed something.
You don't know if you've taken a wrong turn.
Just because this is wholly unfamiliar doesn't mean you are in the wrong place.

And life isn't about getting to the right place.
It's about getting in the right Presence.

So be still.

Breathe deep.

You know the way to go.
You know to go right into Him.

Make no decisions and take no steps until that is where you are.
