Often, in Christian circles, hiding imperfections makes us appear righteous. In recovery groups, hiding imperfections is considered denial. It is frowned upon as it hinders progress. If we don't admit our issues then we can't move forward with them and our process of growth is hindered. This in turn affects our relationships with ourselves, God and each other as well as all progress related to that issue.
Where in your life are you denying issues you know you should be facing. Are there people that you feel would not accept you in some way or another if you were to talk to them about it? Do you feel that way about the church you attend? Could you accept yourself for admitting the issues?
Prayer: Pray that God's grace would allow you to move forward past these obstacles. Pray that there would be people in your life that you can talk to about these things.
