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.

Monday Praying to Live the Potential

Father, it's Monday. Instead of seeing the end of a weekend, I see the beginning of a week filled with potential. May everything that lies before me lead my heart to you. May I see answers instead of obstacles, and may I choose to be a blessing at every opportunity. I ask that you would invade earth through me and people would see your love and your hand reaching into their darkness. I ask that they would see and feel hope and that I would convey the your almighty power to save, not just their souls from sin, but their lives from their broken past and destructive habits. Show me where I sabotage my own blessings and stand in the way of your plans. Forgive my sins. Search my heart and see if their is any offensive way in me. Lead me in the ways everlasting for your name sake. Holy God, be glorified in me. I love you.
