Why Surrendered and Free?

I’m a Christ-follower and 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 new level of freedom¬†started a major domino affect in my life. When I got back from the trip, one thing lead to another and I have found myself enrolled as a student at Dallas Theological Seminary and pursuing a ministry career. A lot of people ask me how seminary is going and what I’m learning. 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.
