Affliction and Affection: Flip sides of the same coin?

My response: Thank you for this thoughtful post. I found it while doing a Google search for ‘reformed deepen affection for God’. What I am thinking is that if our pain is not from God, where is the personal love of God in it? Are not afflictions tailor-made and personal, from His loving hand, ultimately to bring us to Him if we are His? Perhaps the word “caused” is not the right word, but certainly God is sovereign and infinitely more involved than one who only watches. If we could fully understand this, we would not be finite creatures.
