Can you help regarding Gods will vs taking action?

Going through some tough times with the wife and work. I have recently come to find comfort by telling myself to trust Gods Will. But how do you know when it is time to take action and when to sit back and wait for Gods Will? Praying on it is the best i can do i suppose?

Dear friend,

This is where a regular confessor or spiritual director can help by getting to know you and giving some objective input.
