Psalm 66:18 The Lord will not hear me if I hold on to sin in my heart.
Change will not come if you are not honest with God and yourself. When your ready to be brutally honest about yourself and mistakes God will take you seriously and give you freedom healing and Wholeness. God does not just give you recovery he brings restoration ! So you don't have to walk around labeling yourself an addict. We go from recovering to restored which means old things will pass away and you will become a new creation. Holding on to shame, guilt , regrets, hate ,and anger will hinder and stop you from maturing into that new creation. God has a plan for your life but you keep getting in the way ! God will never force you to get with His program and many die prematurely hard headed and full of hate and pride ,missing out on how wonderful life can be.
