What did Jesus mean when he was talking to Nicodemus and said "But he that practices truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest,that they are wrought in God?"

I realize that I was not doing the truth when I came to Jesus. That's why I'm having a problem with this question. Is it a fact that I realized that I wanted to do right and confess my sins and that's why God saved me?

John 3:21

ESV - 21 But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.
