Being in the Medical field and seeing first hand some truly sad and horrific deaths I will say that it is hard to reconcile the benevolent and omnipotent part to be sure.

Hi GDR, you being a Theist yes that would be one.
But a Atheist would simply say it is arbitrary.
Because the fact that you exist could be due to something other than a creation from God. So yes for your own personal perspective that is a benefit, but what if your entire existences is one long painful nightmare?
