I got so inspired by the following passage, I just had to share this with you all…
The one main reason being that, we all ask this question in midst of our problems ” Why Me God, Why Me? ” .. … Oh for sure I ask this question everytime I get stuck in the middle of a crisis. But probably this passage down teaches us not to question God’s purpose in our life.
Why Me God? Why Me…..
Ashe was the first black player selected to the United States Davis Cup team and the only black man ever to win the singles title at Wimbledon, the US Open, and the Australian Open.

When I was holding the cup in my hand , I never asked God :
