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.

This Momma on her Knees

Meltdown day.

And both precious children in my home got to see it in all of its inglorious wretchedness.

If I could get anything really REALLY right, it would be being a mom.

All the things I think I am getting right everywhere else become nothing when I get this so wrong.

Oh, Holy God, forgiveness and grace for me..
....and for our children, be the voice that speaks louder than mine..
....and give them hearts to forgive me and embrace you.
