Why has this happened to me?
Oswald Chambers wrote "If you are going to be used by God, He will take you through a multitude of experiences that are not meant for you at all, they are meant to make you useful in His hands, and to enable you to understand what transpires in other souls so that you will never be surprised at what you come across."
People say to me all the time, actually over the years, "why has this happened to me?"
I don't always understand Oswald Chambers. In fact at times I have to re-read what he has written to let it soak in. I think this message is one of those. 
As I thought about it, I could relate to a few things in my own life. God has been "preparing" me for so many years. 
When He calls us to do something, and we feel unqualified, I always hesitate to say that.  I'm always afraid He's going to qualify   me.
What kind of experiences have you had in your life?
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future says the Lord.
