1. Go to God and ask for His help. Particularly if someone has questions or doubts because of a painful experience, they may be tempted to turn away from God. I encourage us to turn to God in those times.
2. Study the Bible to learn, grow and seek answers. As we study, among other things, we can learn and be reminded about ways God has been at work and how other people have found God faithful.
3. Talk to trusted people. There is a good chance that mature Christians in your life (perhaps parents, leaders, or other Christians you know) may be able to offer insights or ways they've experienced God at work in their lives that may be helpful for questions or doubts you might be experiencing.
4. Look at trusted resources that may answer many of the questions you might have. Not all questions may be answered by God this side of heaven; but for the past several hundred years, Christians have been studying, researching and praying about questions. It is very possible that other Christians have recorded helpful thoughts about many questions you may have. A couple helpful links about questions are available via: https://www.faithevfree.org/teen-resources.html
You may find times when you have some faith but it is not as strong as you might like it. Perhaps you may feel like the man who asked Jesus to heal his son. Jesus asked if the man had faith and the man answered, " “I believe; help my unbelief!” (Mark 9:24). Or other times, you may feel like your faith is even weaker. In times when you have questions or doubts, ask for God's help, study the Bible, talk to trusted Christians, and look at trusted resources from Christians.
And, stay meeting together with Christians to learn, grow, and be encouraged - and also, as a Christian - to help others learn, grow, and be encouraged as well. And pray for each other!
