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 student earning a Master of Arts in Apologetics and Evangelism & Master of Arts in Christian Studies at Dallas Theological Seminary and am the Engage Pastor/Missions and Outreach at Grace Bible Church. I have also worked in ministry at Ramesh Richard Evangelism and Church Health, Probe Ministries, 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.
