You make sense to me, I usually feel the same way. Gets difficult in the *really* bad times, though. It's ironic to me that as much as I may holler and scream and "why me?" at God, and as many times as I have felt totally abandoned by She/He, I always regain my faith. Maybe because I have had actual experience with answered prayers(not necessarily the answers I wanted, but definitly answers from 'whoever' God is). I've also had times when my depression had me so mentally paralyzed that I couldn't make important decisions(or unimportant ones),so I developed a way of praying, "okay, God, If I am supposed to do "A" then let "this" happen as a sign, and if I am supposed to do "B" then let "that" happen as a sign.". Yes, it may sound nutty(Hey, I never claimed to be sane!), but oddly enough, I don't think I've ever felt that I had made the wrong decision after letting such a sign guide me.
So, whether you say, God or Higher Power, or whatever, I do think that there is some purpose at work in this life.
