From world over, he received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed:

“Why does GOD have to select you for such a bad disease”?

To this Arthur Ashe replied:
arthur ashe childhoodarthur ashe“The world over — 50 million children start playing tennis, 5 million learn to play tennis, 500,000 learn professional tennis, 50,000 come to the circuit, and 5000 reach the grand slam, 50 reach Wimbledon, 4 to semi-finals, 2 to the finals,

When I was holding a cup I never asked GOD, Why me?

And today in pain I should not be asking GOD, Why me?

Happiness keeps you Sweet,
Trials keep you Strong,
Sorrow keeps you Human,
Failure keeps you humble and Success keeps you glowing,
but only Faith & Attitude keeps you going.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28;

God strategically placed each word of this passage to assure us He is for us!

And if you’re a Christian, it applies to every aspect of life.  You can claim it whether you’re operating a billion-dollar industry or you’re unemployed.

Regardless of what happens, everything – everything! – somehow operates for your good!

Rom 8:28
