If you are a child of God, you will pick up on those times when you are out of the will of God, and see the distress for what it is and thank Him for it. You will get back to where you should be, and then God will straighten you path and break down those bars and gates that are in your way. However it is all up to you.
So for unarmed civilians desperately trying to get out of the way of calamity in the form of incoming rockets and mortar rounds, a father who watches his son kiilled by sniper rifles should thank him for what? For showing him the error of living in a war zone and trying to raise children to respect others lives and property? Perhaps you would care to inquire of God why he needs the entertainment?
