You know you make bad decisions when you’re stressed, frustrated, and anxious. So don’t. The only decision you should make when you feel overwhelmed is when you’re going to let God love you back into his presence.
It’s not a decision requiring your performance, but it does need your trust. A trust to let him calm your heart and mind, and see yourself and your circumstances from his perspective. This is where you can make good decisions—from inside his love, joy, and complete peace.
“There’s no test or temptation that others haven’t faced, so know you’re not alone. God will never let you down, or let you be pushed past your limit. He will always be there to help you through whatever you’re facing” (1 Corinthians 10:13, paraphrase).
