Why do people only turn to god when they need his help?

I've noticed that most people only go to church when they are troubled. I'm guilty of this too but why is it that most people can't just praise him all the time. You'd think that if everything is going good you would thank god for it but most people only curse him when their down. Are you that type of person? What do you think of that type of person? Should they be punished?

I am guilty of the same thing. I guess the troubles we encounter in life is God's way of reminding us that He's the only One we need to help us in overcoming any obstacles we may be facing. But I don't think God punishes those people who only goes to church when they are troubled. Actually, I don't go to church at all but that's a different story. Anyway, I believe in a forgiving and loving God. He doesn't punish people. We cause our own problems/troubles. It's funny because we always pray to God whenever we need anything, but once we get what we asked for, we forget to thank God for it. We should always be grateful, even for the bad things that come in our life. All of us should practice living in constant gratitude to God.

You may always wonder why we should face many kind of troubles in our life, giggles. God purposely sent this problems to us because it is during this darkest moments that we give our most authenticated and heartfelt prayers. We prayed with our whole heart and soul. Sadly, once the troubles were lifted out of our life, we forsake God again. Being a religious person myself, I always pray whether I'm up or down. I try to be as sincere as possible and tell God what I'm feeling.
