Chaplains Corner - July 2017

What happens when you wake up in the morning? Do you go to your family calendar and see who in your home has an appointment with their civilian doctor, their VA clinic doctor or clinic, a trip to a pharmacy or the commissary or a meeting with a military organization written on today’s day? They make up their list and plan their route to make sure they get everything done. As they get older they have to write in the time, telephone and address if needed. When they get to their front door and check their pockets to make sure they have what they will need at what place.

We often find ourselves overwhelmed by the list we have to make each day. Some people stay busy and enjoy it. Others dream of life in a retirement home with levels of living until they reach the end of their life. They die knowing they have met God’s requirements for their eternal life with God and will wake up in heaven to enjoy eternal life in the perfect peace of God’s presence. It is this certainty that motivates me to live each day to glorify God by confessing my faith in Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord and to walk in the footsteps of Jesus as recorded in the Bible. Be sure to include God’s requirements for eternal life in your daily lists.

Hope to see all of you in heaven.

Love you all,
Chaplain John Szilvasy
