People always want to know WHY. Why did this happen to me? Why would God allow this?

It is for our good. It teaches us things (compassion, patience, and so on). If you were never sick would you appreciate being well? Would you know what warm was if there was not hot and cold? Would we be able to be compassionate if we had never had any trials of our own? What sort of people would we be if all of the adversity was taken from the Earth?

God himself saved you out of all your adversities and your tribulations, 1 Sam. 10: 19. They cried unto the Lord in their trouble, Ps. 107: 6, 13, 19, 28. Though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, yet shall not thy teachers be removed, Isa. 30: 20-21. It must needs be, that there is an opposition in all things, 2 Ne. 2: 11. If they never should have bitter they could not know the sweet, D&C 29: 39. Thine adversity shall be but a small moment, D&C 121: 7-8. All these things shall give thee experience, and shall be for thy good, D&C 122: 5-8. They taste the bitter, that they may know to prize the good, Moses 6: 55.
