I once asked God the question why? Why me? He brought to my memory Ecclesiastes 9:11 "The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong,
nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the
learned; but time and chance happen to them all."
In my words, because God knows that I can handle it. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13
