Evil cannot exist in the light. It simply can’t. When you acknowledge your sin as a part of you – the truth about you – and you bring it out of the darkness and set it before a person whom you trust, and God Himself, then the grip that the sin has over you is broken. Satan will scream that doing this is wrong – that you will be humiliated, embarrassed, that the person to whom you are turning will think you are weak or worse, leave you; but those thoughts and feelings are lies from Hell thus you can pretty much rely on the fact that the exact opposite it true. There is liberation in the light – away from the lies and out of the sin. There is power in the freedom knowing that Satan has no dominion over you. May God empower you in your journey into the light of life.
