The Spirit is Willing but the Flesh is Weak

Out of the whole passion reading at Palm Sunday yesterday- that is the verse that stuck in my head. And oh how true it is. How many times have I had this great plan in my head and as soon as I am tempted to eat, I eat the wrong thing or too much of a good one. So my spirit is willing but my flesh is weak. How do I become strong? By the power of the Holy Spirit. God plus one is a majority. Why can I remember that more? Like all the time? He is totally on my side! I smile when I think about the scene in Prince Caspian (Chronicles of Narnia) when Lucy is standing across the bridge next to Aslan and she draws her little weapon and the two stand there ready to battle hundreds of enemy soldiers. Oh to have that faith. Sometimes I actually do. But need to more often. And I am weary. But then He is willing to carry me when I need it right? To be still and feel his strength. Empowered and Peaceful.
