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.

I don't know what you are facing today. It may be amazing, or amazingly heartbreaking, but whatever it is, I pray you have the courage and strength to be real with God about it.
If you are hurting, He can handle it.
If you are excited, He loves to hear it.
If you are so battered you feel like you can't go on, He wants you to cling to Him.
If you are ready to fly into the next thing, He wants to make sure you have everything ready to be successful.
God doesn't need you to perform for Him, but you need to be real with Him. Trust me. I've done both, and I find nothing in performance except another checklist, but in being real, I always find Him.
Today and every day, may you find Him.
