Believe me, this has been a terrible week for Natural Disasters, also known as Acts of God
A small selection includes:
UK wet summers
Freak Afghanistan Hailstorm
US Wildfire kills 19
Hurricane Irene Approaches
Canadian Calgary Floods
Canada thousands displaced
Swiss Winds 39 Injured
SO, in essence this is how it works.
When your GOD does a good thing you can use this as proof of how good, and benevolent your GOD truly is
BUT, when a bad thing happens to you, or a loved one you must fall back to the doctrine that you are not able to understand Gods Purpose, nor to have it disclosed to you. That any immediate pain or suffering you or that you have experienced or witnessed is regrettably justified.
Another possibility is that the results that you have witnessed strongly correlate to the thesis that your god is perhaps merely an imaginary friend. However, since you have an unshakable faith in your God [and of course not some other imaginary God], you may dismiss such thoughts as heretical.
