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.

Where to Find Hope When the Hopeless Past Takes You by Surprise

Heart, it's okay. Take a moment. Breathe. Wasn't expecting that to hit quite the way it did, were you? Yeah. Those things come out of nowhere sometimes. So take a moment. Get your eyes off the past. There is nothing to look forward to there.

Now. Put your eyes on Him. There is everything possible in Him. He is your hope. Is that dream full right now? Not that you can see, but if you can see Him, you see everything you need to because everything you will ever need, everything good for you, is in Him.
