Hello to all

John T.:
After being shown more than a few truths by my Lord ( one of the greatest of which is this site) I am grateful to have been accepted as a new member and I extend heartfelt hello's to each of you and I thank God for all!

My name is John Seaton and I reside in Indiana. I am 48 years of age,married and a father of one son who is an adult,married also and by the grace of God is a fine young man. I was a heavy equipment operator but had to retire due to having Parkinson's disease. The Lord in His mercy and wisdom has used this to bless me, as it was one of the instrumental ways in which He called me. I thought I knew Him before this and of my own choice, but I now KNOW that I never had true knowledge of Him prior. Many strange things besides a disease have occurred that can only have been of God's doing! Again I am grateful and excited to see what God is doing, not only in me, but everyone else and I say hello to all my brothers and sisters!

God bless you and keep you

Hello John, welcome to BT. I hope your journey here will be enlightening and encouraging. Thank God for His Blessing on us.


Hi John,

Welcome to the forum and thank you for taking the time to introduce yourself. :)


Hello John.
I heard a song this morning with these words.

In the eye of the storm
You remain in control
Your Love surrounds me
You heal my soul
You alone are the anchor
When my sails are torn
Your Love surrounds me in the eye of the storm.

Seems befitting at this time of storms. BT is a safe haven and Jesus my anchor. Thank God for
using L Ray Smith to teach us .There is much wisdom here. God Bless You and bring you peace.

1 Tim. 2:4,,,, God our Savior who will have all men to be saved and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

Praise the Lord, Praise His Holy Name.Come Lord Jesus, Thy will be done.  Amen.    Pamela

John T.:
Thanks so much for your kind words ladies. People such as you are being used of Him to bless and encourage others and I would endeavor to do the same. Pamela, the song you referenced speaks to me profoundly. We all go through storms in life in the carnal,but the storms going on inside which is of a spiritual nature are what would seem to me to matter the most.

For I believe this is where Jesus Christ not only sees us through the carnal storm but he heals the internal storm raging as well, eventually making it calm "as a sea of glass". Praise Him for His tender mercies; I do not deserve such love. I can go through the storms of the sea and by the Grace of God we all can and will! God has humbled me and shown me that if you think your "storm" is too great to endure that there are many going through much rougher,harder and chaotic storms than I am. HE is there for us all and I praise Christ for this. I have read much of L. Ray Smith who was and still is a great teacher inspired from our King; and I believe in my heart of hearts that his reward will be great. I look forward to seeing this man eye to eye, and shaking his hand and embracing him. I will thank him for being strong,teaching and enduring so much and for being used of God even after his passing unto sleep.

Love in Christ,
