The power of a secret is often underestimated. When you hold on to something that is against the desire God has for your life, the secret becomes the master. It condemns you, guilts you, and requires you to do more destructive things to give it protection from being found out. The best thing we can do, when we have a secret that is destroying our life, is to expose the secret to the truth of confession and forgiveness by talking to someone who will help us move away from the secret’s power. Then we are free from it’s condemnation and slavery – we’re allowed to live the life God wants us to live.

By keeping your issue a secret you are giving it power to destroy your life while it spreads as a cancer into your thoughts, actions, and relationships. Isolation is the worst way to live a full life, because it convinces a person that no one needs to know, that no one really understands, and ultimately, that no one really cares. That’s not true! Life on life community is the best way for a person to flourish in their understanding of self, others and God. However, when we spend all our energies protecting our secret from the world this mindset can create an independence stronghold that feels true but is a lie really killing you from the inside out.
