With God's grace we can root out our temptations...

"Those who only shun them outwardly and do not pull them out by the roots will make no progress; for temptations will soon return to harass them and they will be in a worse state.  It is only gradually--with patience and endurance and with God's grace--that you will overcome temptations sooner than by your own efforts and anxieties."
