Matthew 5:44-45

"44 But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous." (NIV)
This scripture was something good to remember last night as I watched torrential rain and wind pound my vegetable garden into the mud.  Christian or non, at some point you're gonna get it.  This is a good thing to remember when things go wrong.  We shouldn't be shocked and suddenly start doubting our faith.  The Bible tells us God is going to send rain whether we worship him or not.  The important thing to focus on when things seem dark is:
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?" Matthew 6:26 (NIV)
