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.

The Real Life

It is a dangerous and ungodly thing to tell God how to work and how to speak. God does not give His throne to anyone. He is patient while teaching people to lay down their will or we would all be consumed as the Bible says, but once a person has asked Christ into his or her heart, the next question should be:

 "Where do I need to lay down my will and embrace yours?"

THAT is the life of a Christian:
becoming nothing that He may become everything.
