If the body is controled by the spirit does it mean our spirit has become too week
To fight our bodies without gods help? Or does it mean only through gods help can our spirit recognize how strong it really is? Don't mean to split hairs just trying to understand. Bottom line is I know I can't beat this on my own. But trying to figure exactly where my effort should be. I understand letting go but having hard time letting go and at same time trying harder. Insight would be helpful. Day 4.

To me, it does...    
"But if and when I do things that invite the Spirit of God into my life, then He can burn away my dross in the refiner's fire.

But, at least for me, it is taking a lot of work to invite the Spirit into my life because I've spent too much time serving a lower power instead of my Higher Power. Trying to serve the Higher Power now, instead."

"I will speak briefly of the principle of repentance. How grateful I am for the understanding we have of this great principle. It is not a harsh principle, as I thought when I was a boy. It is kind and merciful. The Hebrew root of the word means, simply, "to turn," or to return, to God. Jehovah pled with the children of Israel: "Return . . . and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful . . . and I will not keep anger for ever. Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the Lord thy God." When we acknowledge our sins, confess them and forsake them, and turn to God, He will forgive us."
