Can You Have it Both Ways?

Can you believe in a God that is personal, loves you, judges justly and or with mercy, that you prayer for divine assistance and that everything happens for a reason while at the same time believing in something Harry Maryless said:

Speaking strictly about the existence of God and not theological concepts about the attributes of God...God created nature. Nature takes its course.

So does God give a child (or anyone else) cancer for a reason, or is it just nature?
