Seeing Without Sight

My name is Cherise Robb and I am from Living Waters Church in Clear Lake, MN. I attended MTD #14.

When I was invited to attend Tres Dias, I wasn’t sure what to expect. By Friday night I wondered what I had gotten myself into. Then Saturday came and my heart began to soften.

I had just gone through a painful divorce after being married for thirty years. Since I have been blind all my life and could not visually experience what was taking place, the Lord took me on a journey filled with sound and touch.

As I felt the scroll with all the names of those faithfully praying, the crown of thorns on Jesus’ head, and the nails that pierced His hands and feet on the cross, everything came alive and burst forth with new meaning. Throughout the worship, the description of the crucifixion, and the men’s serenade, a river of tears flowed. Years of pain, sorrow for sin, and pent-up grief poured from my eyes and my hardened heart was melted.

I believe Tres Dias ushered me into a new season of springtime and new life. I am so grateful to the Lord for the lavish love He showered on me on that weekend! Truly He is changing my ashes into beauty, my mourning into joy. He is replacing my heavy, burdened spirit with a garment of praise. Praise be to God for His matchless grace and His unspeakable gift!
