I am so grateful that President Kimball acknowledges that it can take time. Sometimes I felt that he was saying, boom you recognize that you have sinned and that is the end of it. Our hearts should be consumed with the goal to turn away from the sin and not repeat it and seek out the source if necessary and correct it so that we can be clean. I have found in my walk with repentance though that I cannot say, "Well, I am so glad that I am not thus and such any longer". About the time I did that the adversary hits me with that very temptation that may just take me down.
Even after many years of clearing up many of my actions I must be ever on guard because subconscious habits go deep and I never know when he will trip me up. I do see the adversaries attempts though to take me down with old weaknesses. I continue my daily scripture study and spiritual practices and keep a prayer in my heart and I am able to observe the temptation without falling victim...at least for today and that's what it is for me, one day at a time.
