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.

When This Gypsy Chooses to Ponder the Truth She Cannot Fail

You ever do something so much bigger than what you are capable of that it’s like standing in front of the sheer cliff of K2 wondering what in the world you were thinking only to remind yourself this is not of this world?

I’m there.

Excited beyond words. Chanting Joshua 1:9 like it was spiritual and mental Tums. 
Have I not commanded you?
Be strong and courageous.
Do not be afraid.
Do not be discouraged.
For the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

Repeat….like a million times….
And then come over and join me at my wondrously exciting new writing project
I look forward to seeing you there!
