everyone experiences god in own way.
Old people only believe in miracles, they think its too late to make a difference themselves so they search for other answers. Or, they became succesful and search for answer why it happened, depending on their mental state.
young people may find god in themselves, finding balance and not judging good and bad, but instead thinking it as one.
Lets look at Karma for example, which is widely spread these days. If you do bad you'll get good karma or opposite and so on, but that is just a lifestyle. When you were a child your parents started giving you an identity, a name, gender, nationality, things that are good and bad. You start creating image of who you are and create an identity. This will haunt you for life, as everything you do and like will depend on your past, this way karma will work for you.
But, if you see life as a balance system and react to every situation differently see the good in bad, you'll start seeing colours. A person is in its peak when they struggle the most, how deep in shit they are. The deeper you sit in it, higher you rise
so, tl;dr every negative thing in your life is only in your head and only you can decide what to take from it.
