Why, God?

Is not the question "Why is God letting this happen to me?" really a question that seeks to find out how God feels toward me? When I have pursued the "why" question by asking, "Could you tell me what you think might be the answer?" I have usually gotten a response that reveals the person's perception of their present relationship with God. Often it is concern that the suffering indicates a vindictive God who is angry with them.
