Myself as idol

Serious question - if you read this, please chime in (even if you feel as lost as I):

How can it be that the Holy Spirit produces SELF-control? Once I am SELF-controlling, am I not out from under His control? Doesn't being out from under His control imply He is no longer producing?

Tara and Ted Wueste both point out that self-control is an issue of actions whereas I was taking it as an issue of will.

More to chew on.
