The Good Stuff

My middle son and his wife are here.  We are in the middle of experiencing answered prayer.  My son and his wife are both physicians.  But due to some good choices my son made, he did not match for a residency coming out of med school.
All things work together for good in prayer, they are all answered, all good...  Thoughts at DTTB.
For the past two years he has first done research, and then did a year in surgery.  We found out in the past couple of weeks that he got a residency back in the town where we live.

We have been praying for that individually and with groups for two years.  Many people talk about unanswered prayer.  There is no such thing.  When we pray there are three possible answers, no, yes, and wait.  All of those are answers.  We may not like one or two of them, but answers they are.

For two years the answers were no and wait.  It is now a qualified yes.  In the sense that he has a residency but not in the specialty that is his passion.  So we have all three answers.

Last night we were talking at the DTTB workshop about how Romans 8:28 does not always work out.  Specifically the men were sharing that for Jonah things were not so good.  Like for the past couple of years things have not been so “good” for my son.  That is not the case.  Neither for Jonah nor my son.  The Scripture is true.  All things work together for good.  The challenge for us may be that our definition of good is not aligned with the Lord’s.
