Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS, which he got due to infected blood he received during heart surgery in 1983.
He received sympathetic letters from his fans, one of which conveyed:
“Why did God have to select you for such a bad disease?”
To this, Arthur Ashe replied:
50 Million children started playing tennis…
5 Million learnt to play tennis…
500,000 learnt professional tennis…
50,000 made it to the Circuit…
5,000 reached grand-slam…
50 got to Wimbledon…
4 crossed to the semi-finals…
Only 2 scaled through to the finals…
And when I was holding the Cup in my hand, I never asked God, “Why me?” So now that I’m in pain, how can I ask God “Why me?”
Happiness keeps you sweet.
Trials keep you strong.
Sorrows keep you human.
Failure keeps you humble.
Success keeps you glowing.
But only Faith keeps you going.
Sometimes you are unsatisfied with your life, while many people in the world are dreaming of living your life.
Love genuinely and
Trust God fully.

Meditation: No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. – 1 Corinthians 10:13
You will succeed in Jesus Name!
