Faith Crisis..from a devotional

I was reading a devotional last before going to bed. It was from a missionary in Haiti, who went thru the devastation of the earthquake there. His faith was shaken when he saw his congregation utterly decimated. He was honest when he said that he talked to God about it. They had a great conversation, mostly him telling God about his doubts of His love and where was it thru this trial. I wonder what happens to us when we encounter rough times. Is our faith shaken? Do we “go on strike’ in our relationship with Him? Do we withdraw, or do we draw closer? Do we say “why God” or do we read the end of Proverbs and say “I don’t know Your Ways, but I do trust You to bring me through, just as you always have, and even if you don’t, I will never quit in my faith.” What does God reward?…Faith… even in the most “un-understandable” of times, for who else is there to turn to….
