This past week we were having an issue with some medical documents. My husband is active duty in the Air Force, which means that our primary doctor on base changes from time-to-time due to PCS (moving) or deployments, etc. Our main doctor is deploying, so when we went in to see the doctor to get our medical paperwork filled out, we met with a new doctor. He really rubbed me the wrong way. He has a aggressive and dominant personality. He said that if he had his way, everyone would be on medication. (!!!) He also told me that I needed to get my lapband taken out and get gastric bypass. He was so insistent on this - it made me very uncomfortable. I tried to just not say much, because I could tell we would not get along. He wasn't nice to me at all about my weight. I left that appointment very frustrated.
Well, the paperwork that he filled out wasn't done correctly, so I had to go back to get it done right. I was reading my scriptures the night before my appointment. I read about someone asking God to go before him and destroy his enemies. The doctor that I'd previously met with felt as close to an "enemy" as I've had. So, I prayed that God would go before me and "destroy my enemy" or just make things work out in the appointment.
The next day, I went in and they had me meet with a different doctor. What a sweet man! He was so kind and sensitive and complimentary of our adoption. He himself adopted two children! He happily filled out my adoption medical forms and was only too happy to do so. He said that there should be more people like me in this world. I tell you what - it was a miracle! I know that God heard my prayer and answered it.
