God gave us free will to show He trusts us, has faith in us, as He wants us to have faith in Him.
God gave His only begotten son Jesus Christ so that we may be able to overcome our flawed human paths for the moments we turn to Him, in a renewal of that trust, and to have a living example of how that trust is to be lived.
We trust God when we thank Him in spite of seemingly adverse worldly circumstances, knowing in our own small portion of the world we are not able to clearly see the heavenly results of those events in God's infinite plan.
God's plan is The Plan.
