How can an orphan believe in God?

Well you probably have to some reason to start with to believe. Then the question is does the existence of suffering and evil pose an argument against what your most probable notion of God, or can it be reconciled to it such that there is no problem? If it cannot be reconciled, then how of a counterargument is it, and does it then force you to change or abandon your original belief?
For that first bit googling "the problem of evil" will probably get you a lot of stuff. I know CS Lewis had a good book the problem of pain if you're interested in the christian God. Other religions I'm sure have their own take on it..
