What did Jesus mean when he was talking to Nicodemus and said "But he that doeth 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 save 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.

I would say that it was in the very act of responding to the Holy Spirit's prompting by coming to Jesus in faith (regardless of what your prior life may have been) that you were "doing the truth", and that that truth was "wrought in God" (through the Holy Spirit's involvement). You were acknowledging that you were not in a right relationship with God (who knew all the details of your past activities), and saying that you wanted to correct that condition, and receive His forgiveness.
