The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.
~Matthew 26:41

I think He set us up, people. NO disrespect intended, but come on! It's pretty obvious.

He calls us to a walk that is impossible to sustain on our own. Then He plants dreams in our hearts that take us to the end of ourselves way faster than our own meager ambitions ever did.

It's the kind of life that will crush us if we try to walk it alone. In our own strength.

Yes, I'm sure of it. He's strategized, ordained, intended and willed to bring me to the end of myself.

Where all I have left is my weak will. The strength to show up and surrender all my hopes, efforts, and dreams. 

Where my flesh bows out, my spirit joins hands with His, and we walk . . together.
