In my religion God is the creator of all things

In my religion God is the creator of all things. He created the earth and He gave life. He loves all his children, even the ones that don’t live Him. He is merciful and forgiving to all.

Some times I cant help but wonder if God is good and if God loves us why does He make us go through some much. However I do believe that God knows our strengths and weaknesses and He knows what we are capable of doing, so I like to look at every hard thing that comes our way like a challenge, which by the time it is over it would only make us stronger.
