When negative things happen in life we wonder why? Why is this happening to me? The reason is because you can handle it. As a child when your parents would ask you to do something, instead of your siblings, you would ask the same question, why me? If you go and ask them they will say it is because they know their children and you were the one they felt who can handle it. God is the same way. He knows what you can and cannot deal with. He would not allow something to happen to you if you could not make it through. Instead of asking why me, you should ask what can I learn from this. You may see other people breezing through life but you are stronger than them, that is why you are being tested. The test is to make you stronger and for you to get prepared for something much better in life. God is not going to give you something until you are ready to receive it, similar to a trust fund. Most trust funds aren't accessible until the recipient is of a certain age, in which they are thought to be able to handle it. If you gave a 16 year old 5 millions dollars you can only imagine how that would play out. God is not in the business of giving out blessings to people who can't handle them, so he tests us and makes sure we are ready. That negative situation you are going through is a test. A test that is preparing you for a bright future. This is why you were chosen.

This is a profound message! I'm a Christian athlete and aspiring Marine officer and I have to remind myself of this daily. Thanks for this post because more people really need to hear and understand this message. Keep up the good work!
