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.

"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."

"Now brethren, the time has come for any one of us who is so involved to pull himself out of the mire, to stand above this evil thing, to “look to God and live” (Alma 37:47). We do not have to view salacious magazines. We do not have to read books laden with smut. We do not have to watch television that is beneath wholesome standards. We do not have to rent movies that depict that which is filthy. We do not have to sit at the computer and play with ographic material found on the Internet."
