Sadie Robertson Narrowly Escaped Mogadishu Bombing, Tells All In Emotional Post

American actress and television icon Sadie Robertson has recently opened up about narrowly escaping a bombing in Somalia’s capital city of Mogadishu.

Immediately following her departure from Mogadishu in October, the capital city suffered a massive bombing attack which affected more than 800 people.

“When I was in Mogadishu, Somalia back in October I felt as though I was staring at the face of fear,” Sadie said in a social media post. “For someone who has dealt with fear, anxiety, and panic attacks I had to really be on guard to not allow the enemy to use that from stopping what God had purposed for the trip.”

The 20-year-old said she was calmed by the words found in Scripture.

“One of the nights there i woke up and began to feel a panic attack creeping in and the feeling of fear surrounding,” the post continued. “I leaned over and grabbed my mom and the first words I gasp out was READ PSALMS 91.”

Psalm 91 reads, in part:

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart…(read more here).

Here’s more from Sadie:

“The enemy was on the move to kill, steal, and destroy what God has purposed for that trip, but when He got right up close and the words and power of who our God is came in and canceled the assignment of fear that the enemy tried to throw at me,” she said. “I am a fearless daughter, because my Father is my refuge. This daughter has found her confidence in her father.”

“Speak to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord;” ‭‭EPHESIANS‬ ‭5:19‬ ‭ Pricilla Shirer encouraged passion to reread Ephesians and it has been speaking so loudly to every area of my life as a believer. Tonight I was able to share a message to a group of woman of how as daughters we can find our confidence in who our dad is. This verse of speaking Psalms hit me today. I never took this verse as seriously as the power in it. Sometimes we don’t feel like we have the words to say when we are staring at the face of fear, staring at the face of our enemies, staring at the face of our battles the Lord spoke this word in a dream recently and it reminded me of the what i carry and what He equips me with. . . WHEN the enemy comes to kill, steal, and destroy he better hear you talking to your daddy. You don’t feel like you know the words to say…. SURE YOU DO He has already given them to you. THAT is your weapon. When I was in Mogadishu, Somalia back in October I felt as though I was staring at the face of fear. For someone who has dealt with fear, anxiety, and panic attacks I had to really be on guard to not allow the enemy to use that from stopping what God had purposed for the trip. One of the nights there i woke up and began to feel a panic attack creeping in and the feeling of fear surrounding. I leaned over and grabbed my mom and the first words I gasp out was READ PSALMS 91. My mom began to declare the words of WHO OUR GOD IS and WHAT OUR GOD CAN DO. That He is OUR REFUGE AND STRENGTH. That we WILL NOT FEAR THE TERROR OF THE NIGHT. that we are hiding under the feathers of His mighty wing. That He hears our cry. As we began to say who our father was the fear left the room and a peace invaded. The enemy was on the move to kill, steal, and destroy what God has purposed for that trip, but when He got right up close and the words and power of who our God is came in and canceled the assignment of fear that the enemy tried to throw at me. I am a fearless daughter, because my Father is my refuge. This daughter has found her confidence in her father. #fcaiam2018

Per Faith Wire:

Sadie managed to escape the bombing that claimed the lives of 512 people and injured another 300. Many believe Islamic militant group Al-Shabaab to have been behind the attack. The truck bomb was the third-deadliest act of terrorism in history.

Immediately following the attack, Sadie posted to social media, “1 hour after our plane took off this morning a massive bomb went off less than a half mile from the hotel I have been staying at and very near to the homes of all of my friends there.”

“The whole city shook and the whole city is shaken,” Sadie continued. “The area at this point is unrecognizable.”

my heart is broken. I have spent the past 4 days in Mogadishu, Somalia. It has been an experience like no other. 4 days of Love • Connection • Friendship • Passion • Hope… 1 hour after our plane took off this morning a massive bomb went off less than a half mile from the hotel I have been staying at and very near to the homes of all of my friends there. The whole city shook and the whole city is shaken. The area at this point is unrecognizable. These new friends of mine are passionate, hopeful, hardworking, beautiful, loving, and human just like you. They have been through more in life than many of us can understand, but stronger then many of us will ever be. Today they were hit again. Hard. Nearly 40 people already found dead. Please pray. my heart is broken.
