Change your "why" question


I attended good motivational seminar 2 weeks ago. From many stories which the speaker has shared, a good one really inspiring me. He told us about Arthur Ashe.

Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS which he got due to infected blood he recieved during a heart surgery in 1983.

From the world over, he recieved letters from his fan, one of them conveyed: "Why does God have to select you for such a bad disease?".

To this Arthur Ashe replied: The world over--50,000,000 children start playing tennis, 5,000,000 learn to play tennis, 500,000 learn profesional tennis, 50,000 come to the circuit, 5000 reach the grand slam, 50 reach the Wimbledon, 4 to semi finals, 2 to finals. When I was the one holding the cup, I never asked god "Why me?".

And today in pain, I should not be asking GOD "why me?".

Sometimes in life, when we face the problem which really difficult to be done we always asking "why". Whereas we know that everything happens with the blessing of God. He has his own reason.

I remember my conversation with my friend. She has told me that whatever you face, never ask why it happens. It will make u blind to God's vision because you are too concerned to looking for the reason why. If God has a reason, He also has purpose. Believe me! you also can't ask God what's His purpose until it happens to your life. Because God's way is beyond what we can imagine, we even made amazed by Him. But until it happens, God needs us to cooperate with Him. Indeed our limitations and mistakes can't change God's plan in our life, but to reach a destination we need go trough a journey. And that journey which will changes our life according to God's will, be better person exactly. So we need to take right step on our journey.

How come ?

Change your "why" question..

Start to ask "what" to God..

What should i do next, God?
