Disasters happen because we live in a sinful world. Obviously we know that terrible things happen all the time, but just because they happen it doesn’t mean that God doesn’t care. When Adam & Eve first sinned, it had repercussions on all of us. We have to go through trials like these because we live in a sinful world. This stuff doesn’t necessarily happen because God is angry with us or wants us to learn a lesson, but through disasters we tend to get closer to God, to call upon Him because during these times, we realize that we cannot make it on our own.
