There are times fwhen things don't work out your way no matter how hard you try. These are situations where you are helpless and nothing turns the wind in your favor. In such cases, I leave everything on God. But there are times when l start questioning my faith as well. What should I do when this happens and the situation refuses to improve.

I hope I will never come to a situation where I will be questioning God of what's happening to my life. I always start and end my day with a little prayer entrusting everything that I do as well as protecting my family from all the harms of our day to day living. At the end of the day, I still believe that His plans for my life will be the best for us all.

It's easy for me to say, that in that moment you need to put everything in God's hands, pray, and listen. He just might have another direction for you to go that will yield better rewards. It's also hard to do that.

I have a strong faith and I believe in placing my troubles in God's hands. At the same time, I know that if something isn't working for me then it is up to me to make a change. God may be leading you in a different direction but it is also up to you to be proactive and seek those things that will bring you happiness. I believe in the saying "God helps those who help themselves." It doesn't mean He won't be there for you, but that He wants you to make the effort in achieving what He wants for you. When I was truly struggling and was hungry, well-meaning people loved giving me the advice of putting it all in God's hands. I respectfully told them that I had already done that but God wants His people here on Earth to help one another. It isn't like He is going to reach out of the sky and hand you what you need. He places people in our path for a reason. Sometimes, all someone needs is a listening ear and helpful advice with options you may not have thought of. Telling someone to "Put it in God's hands" and not offer them assistance in some way to me is equal to just brushing them and their need away. If the situation doesn't improve, whatever it may be, it may be an indication that perhaps it isn't meant to be and other actions must be taken. If you find yourself continuously doing the same things and not getting anywhere, then it is time to find the changes that will lead to the results you are searching for.
