So I went to church this morning and after service I met with this other young lady who interestingly enough is in a similar position as I.
- Both 29
- Have pre-med background
- Went to Postgraduate school in a biological field ( though different area)
- Both like creative stuff like art( though maybe the art we like or like doing is different)
I was technically suppose to have done the mcat by now and been applying to med school this year.
Here’t the thing: I don’t feel assured to go that path. However hearing her tell me today that she signed up for the mcat, stirred me up to do the same. We talked about other stuff related to med school. We talked marriage and kids( we are both single) . I told her she may find her husband and med school. I told her about how I wasn’t set about going to med school. I feel for a career like this one should “count the cost” so to speak .I mean it’s just wisdom to really seek the Father about the matter. Diligently. and that’s what I should do. I mean personally I’v considered other things that I could do.
I wonder if she is rushing into going to med school. She told me some time before that she likes art and that her brother does too but its not something you can make money from (not true but I understand why she feels that way). I wonder if there is something else she’d rather do. I can’t help to think she may not be thinking this through. I guess a good thing to do would be to pray for her. Perhaps her going to med school or even an md/phd may be the right thing for her; maybe she does want to be doctor. I feel I’ve been advised ( serendipitously) to do according to what this article says.
as concerning things I may want to do.
So yeah the thing is I was really feeling stirred to study for the mcat, to perhaps apply this year. It’s like I got caught up what she was doing. But am I suppose to study for mcat now? Anyway I should perhaps follow this wisdom here:
Philippians 4:6-7 ESV
6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
There are reasons why for why I’ve thought perhaps I should go into the medical field, perhaps even being a physician. But despite those things that may be proof that I should go into the medical field, I still feel maybe I could be doing other things. However, I feel concerning the highest dream I have the motives may be off, may be wrong 😬
