Hey you! Come out from behind that plant. Metaphorically speaking. In Genesis 3:8, Adam and Eve knew they'd done wrong. They were so terrified of the consequences that they went and hid behind some trees. It didn't work too well, though. God's a pretty good finder.
So, why do we still try to hide? When that 'sin' happens, we can often try our very best to avoid God. We don't want to face telling Him about it, or dealing with the aftermath. We don't want to experience His disappointment in us. Or our own disappointment in ourselves. It's easier to just keep our mouths shut, and hope that we can carry on without having to face Him.
But that's not God's plan. Life with Him isn't some sort of monstrous game of hide and seek. Take a look at Genesis 3. When God found Adam and Eve, He started a conversation. He dealt with their mess. Then (in the first verse of chapter 4), He still helped them. You see, there are always going to be consequences for our mistakes. But, when we take them to God and ask Him to deal with them, there's still life with Him in and after those consequences.
So what now? Trust God's justice. Be honest with Him about your mistakes. Deal with the consequences. And watch Him still make something beautiful out of your life.
