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 have come to know that thoughts, like water, will stay on course if we make a place for them to go. Otherwise, our thoughts follow the course of least resistance, always seeking the lower levels. Probably the greatest challenge and the most difficult thing you will face in mortal life is to learn to control your thoughts. In the Bible it says, as a man ‘thinketh in his heart, so is he’ (Prov. 23:7). One who can control his thoughts has conquered himself. As you learn to control your thoughts, you can overcome habits, even degrading personal habits. You can gain courage, conquer fear, and have a happy life. "

— Boyd K. Packer
