My name is T.S. Weaver, and I’m a Christ-follower. My story is the story of both surrender and freedom. I have grown up in the church and made the decision to get baptized in high school. That was my first moment of surrender, but I have come to find there are multiple levels of surrender when it comes to following Christ, and with each new level of surrender comes a new level of freedom. My next pivotal moment of surrender came when I was in Israel. After a series of events, I knew that I was trying too hard to control my life. Thankfully, when this dawned on me, I was at a point in the trip where we were visiting the Jordan River. I made the decision to become re-baptized in the Jordan River and surrender my control to God. When I came up out of the water, it was like I was taking my first breath as a brand new, more purposeful follower. This feeling came with so much freedom because I knew I had given everything to God, and He was big enough to handle it. That new level of surrender and a new level of freedom started a major domino effect in my life. When I got back from the trip, one thing lead to another and I am now a full-time student earning a Master of Arts in Apologetics and Evangelism & Master of Arts in Christian Studies at Dallas Theological Seminary and have worked in ministry at Ramesh Richard Evangelism and Church Health and New Horizons of North Texas. My goal for this blog is to share a little bit of what I’m learning along the way. My prayer is that this information leads to someone else’s transformation; and someone else can reach a new level of surrender and freedom in Christ.
