We are in need of help and we need to admit it was the first step to beginning recovery, 2nd step was repenting from the sin of missing out on life that is a blessing, and 3rd step returning to Gods way, truth and life and we practice step 4 making a searching and fearless moral inventory of our self to see if there is any wickedness in us. This leads to step 5.
5. We admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
James 5:16a
"Therefore confess your sins one to another and pray for each other that you may be healed."
Adam and Eve tried to hide from God in the Garden. We need to run to God not away from him. It is so easy to think you really do not have to admit any wrong for everybody is drinking or sinning in some way or other. Yet there is never a time in our lives we can take for granted we have it made or licked. Satan is the author of deceiving and is working overtime today for the internet does not need to rest, Satan is out all the time seeking whom he may devour. Lord help us to see the need for others and that is the reason God wants us to come to Church to worship, reverence, have faith and hope in Him, so He can answer our prayers and forgive us of our sins that would so easily beset us.  
Confession Promotes Healing: We are as sick as our Secrets. Confession is realizing we have hurt God, our loved ones and those around us. Peter confessed and Judas didn’t. Confession is caused by conviction of the Holy Spirit and He is not a respecter of persons. Many think, if I control my drinking it is ok. If I control my tongue it is ok. If I keep it hide no one will ever know? Sin can’t be hide from God as He said behold your sin will find you out. No one has to tell your sin is wrong, but we get blinded tol the truth  or Satan say’s it is ok it will make you wise like God. Remember Adam and Eve listen to Satan and then had to hide for sin can’t be done in secret. Let’s look at what happens when we accept the secret sins causes and effects.
SECRETS CAUSE     
Shame-that causes you not to see reality, you can’t talk right, your nervous, shaky, restless, can’t follow a white line, can’t stay calm very nervous, trying to cover up and turn red, or have some other type of disfiguration. This leads to not caring about personal thing being in order very messy and that is ok.
Guilt-to where you can shake it off your comfortable with feeling uncomfortable and who care, you just live with it and shrug it off thinking it will go away and it does for your callous and can’t be corrected by behavior or attitude that is totally wrong and you do not care.
Fear-Is a part of your life and you can’t escape being found out, so you live in fear of doing wrong and do not want to change and become adopted into the family of God. Fear is one of Satan’s biggest tool to keep one away from doing what is right and healthy for the body. Fear is like witchcraft and never gives one the ability to abide and rest in the Lord.
Isolation-Is very common as you do not want people that are doing right to know you’re not so you hide your true identity.
Alienation-is real and becomes a disadvantage for you limited in what your able to do or think, so keep away from a crowd that can benefit you and always seeking some one that is doing what you’re doing that is why the tavern’s or gambling casinos are full of people. 
Dishonesty-This is so common for they have learned to cope with lying to self and those they love and everyone else. This effects relationship and when married becomes a stumbling block.
Denial-Is not being able to accept the problems we face and is a hindrance to breaking our sins for they do not take away for us having fun in our addictions of sin.
Low Self Worth-This is one reason we have so many mental health facilities today for people want to be told they can and in fact can’t for it take God to give self- esteem to be honest and open, or transparent.
Anger-Is rampant today and could be the reason for lawlessness, for many people can’t control their attitude our behavior without becoming belligerent and hurting someone, or even self.
Defensiveness-is common for many do not want to fight for the right and are always trying to defend their reason for doing what they are doing. It is very easy for defensive people to become fault finding for they are never wrong or see themselves as a problem.
Self Hatred- This is seen many time in the way people mutilate their bodies and talk negative about themselves. They are never successful and positive about what they are doing.
Thank the Lord everyone I have ever meet seems to enjoy what Honesty promotes for it is knowing the truth about how God created us all.



 HONESTY PROMOTES 
Trust-This is a word that gives everything meaning in life as its bases in truth knowing the way and life that is found as we abide in the Lord know John 15:16 “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that you should bear forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain that whatsoever you shall ask in my name; He may give it to you”. This is a fact that everyone needs to understand to be able to find fulfillment regardless of the circumstance we find ourselves in. The true is God created us to produce His work as we trust Him and obey Him, in every area of our lives. 
Confidence-This is gained the more we practice the commands of the Lord for He empowers us for the battle we are all in. It’s knowing life many times finds you losing but God grace, love and mercy never leaves us and we continue in serving and obeying Him at all cost.
Purity-This is not easy for we live in a world of uncleanness and have to wash several times a day to stay pure and as we abide in the Lord He knows how to keep our body, soul and spirit pure before Him. Purity is being holy without which we will never reach heaven. Purity is our when we confess and repent of our wrong so we can do what is right with is purity at its best.
Belonging-We are not living on a Island all by ourselves we belong on this planet so we can make a difference. You are on God team apart of the Kingdom of God and no longer belonging to the forces of evil. You’re abiding in God and He then abides and gives you direction to heaven, so you’re in His presence forever more!
Acceptance of Others-Everyone is important for all God created matters and the things of this world grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace. Only a Christian is able to pray for his enemies or those that would despitefully use, or abuse him. 
Patience- is one of the fruits we produce as we abide in Him; for it is waiting for the return of the Lord while involved with working, knowing that one day work will be over and we will enjoy the presence of the Lord forever, with no sin to distract us for all work is done. Patience then is not needed, it just is.
Tolerance-This is what God gives us so we can withstand the onslaught of the enemy. We can’t destroy Satan but we can stop what he forces upon us as we learn to tolerate his working among us.
Gratitude-This is love at the greatest degree, for we are ever thankful for what God has done, is doing and will continue to do as we are abiding in Him. God is always giving more than we can imagine so gratitude is real for life cannot be taken for granted. Thank the Lord life comes as we are obedient to His way, truth and life.
Serenity-The quality or state of being serene, calmness; tranquility. That is being relaxed in abiding in the arms of the Lord with the assurance all is will, when doing what is expected.
Peace-Flows like a river in control and not flooding out of control. Peace comes as a result of doing what is right, proper and is always a blessing to behold for peace can be seen by all or felt by all!
Openness-is having the ability to be transparent about your imagination, reason, conscience, memory and affections of your spirit and even your faith, hope, in who you worship and reverence who you pray to  is able to be talked about. 
Self-Acceptance- is possible for we realize we are all sinners that are saved by the grace of the Lord. Self- acceptance is working at achieving your potential and knowing your becoming better and better without becoming bitter, for bitterness will not let you see yourself as you really are, a person created by God, who gave you all the tools necessary to feel good about your life, as your abiding not in self, but in His loving arms.
Forgiveness-is a mark of one who is abiding in the Lord for they know having the ability to forgive gives relationship that are beneficial to all. Forgiveness is a mark of a follower of the Lord as He forgive those who tried Him and crucified Him for He said; they do not know what they have done. Thank the Lord he gave His life that we might be born again living within the boundaries of the Kingdom of God that has walls of protection, as we abide in Him.  
To understand Jesus died for our sins gives us the Spirit of being adopted into the family of God no longer orphans but now His children or sheep.
Romans 8:1
"There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus." Thank the Lord for the assurance we have as we abide in Him and do His will and not want our wills but to love Him and adore Him is our purpose that has tremendous dividends to enjoy while traveling through this world of sin and shame with hope and faith now in the Lord to assist in going through the rough roads of life. He gives us Courage to go on and we understand with the knowledge of reading God words the wisdom needed. 
We see courage is not the absence of fear, but the ability to overcome it and press on in the name of the Lord.
