What will you do when you're in one of these situations: - You find out that you have cancer and it's gotten really serious to the point that you have only a few months to live - You find out that your girlfriend got pregnant... accidentally? - You find out that you're adopted? - and other stuff that makes you nauseous the moment you hear them. How do you face the problems in your life? Do you seek God for advice? Do you solve the problems head-on or do you ask friends for help? Let's discuss this shall we?

Hi, Life is full of Ups & Downs.but this is true after every down there is Up. If I face these 'curveballs' I'll accept & face courageously.I donot give-up. I'll take these as tests(from HIM) & I'll take all measures to come out successfully.God only helps those who help themselves.I'll Fight back,logically without loosing patience & Hope! =Lahiri,Kolkata,India.

Once I get over the shock, it's time to pull out all tactile warfare. I employ all three. I turn to God and ask Him to guide and direct me, rest in Him for answers (calm down and keep my peace). Then I get the facts, research, ask questions, track down anything that will help. Step three-gather friends and family for support and their point of view. Finally, back to God to lay out all of the above before Him and ask for direction.
