BUT SHE HAD A DIMPLE: When the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.

It was an unfair relationship for me as I found myself enduring, while she enjoys it. It was so because the endurer wanted it more than the enjoyer. Usually the one who loves more makes the sacrifice in a relationship. There were moments I wanted to quit but the remembrance of her dimples tempted me to always give her another chance to change, because I just couldn’t imagine myself living without her smile that came along with her dimples. Indeed, the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. But it doesn’t matter how far a man desires to go, there comes a time when he has to gather the courage and stand up and say “enough is enough”, though the uttering of those words bleeds his heart, yet, a man he is and a man he must be.
Maybe what is making you hold on to that abusive, difficult and complex relationship that is taking you nowhere may not be her dimples but something else. It could be her nose, her hips, her eyes, her voice, the car he drives, his height, his six pack, his money, the way she walks, the way he speaks, her body shape, his beard, hairy chest, social status, his or her career etc.

Pray and commit it into the hands of the lord. Tell God that you have lost control so he should take over and let his will be done in that relationship (for the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak). When you pray, you must be prepared to allow God’s will to prevail. Because sometimes his will may be very difficult to accept. But you have to trust him and know that he loves you and knows what is best for you.

May the Lord give you courage and strength to walk away from anything that is killing you.
