Just wanted to share my view on a local new story done in my region. A woman, lost her mother and brother in law to COVID. She stated at the end of the story the only way she has stayed positive is through her faith. It's sad that people have to deal with loss to this stuff, but to say your last strain of hope is because of faith, I think is strange. During these times, I'm still the most puzzled about ho people of faith, can even bother with faith. To me, to you guys I think you would agree, I'm surprised the COVID thing, isn't the waking up point for people of faith, to like, you know what all religion is horrible and if God did exist, he sure wouldn't care about people. Why, do you think people turn to faith as their last hope in life?

For myself, what makes the Atheist community and especially this forum, is how great it is to always come here and share with all of you and be around other Atheists. Hope, everyone is doing well and safe.

God cares about all, but i have to admit even i hate the way God works. It doesnt change the fact that He is God. It seems like He doesnt care at times, but i suppose good things will come if we want them.

Some good things will always come after bad.  Otherwise, we would have bad all the time.  That is a useless platitude.

I don't care if God cares or not, if he doesn't do anything.  I can see God saying "sorry, nothing I can do.  Perhaps you'll get something good happen next year".  This is in direct contradiction to the claims of the bible.  The bible claims that if you have enough faith, you WILL do miracles in God's name.  It states that God knows what you need before you ask.  It states God makes everything work together for good for those who love Him.

I realize that you are sincere, but your posts come across as naive about your religion.  I would guess you are a young man.  Many of us here have had decades dealing with religion.  I am a former Christian.
