Tornadoes Hit the Gulf: Pensacola Gets Pounded

Abiding, Crisis
LISTEN NOW! Our hearts and prayers go out to those in the Pensacola and the Gulf Coast area. A tornado touched down in Pensacola causing brick buildings to crumble and roofs to be completely lifted off houses and buildings. When The Pensacola News Journal spoke to Joanne Grzesiak, resident of the Moorings Apartments, she shared, ‘…a tornado just touched down and removed the roofs of all four housing complex buildings, and within 30 seconds two buildings are completely collapsed…’. Others have shared that before they could run, the roof was ripped off the building. With a suddenly such as this, you don’t have time to prepare, you just react.

Based off what we know so far, there has been no loss of life. As we consider and hear about these events, it is important to remember, as people are suffering all around us, we must be there for those walking through this process; those who have just experienced their houses and belongings totally destroyed. It is easy to understand the encouraging words from the Lord; those messages of joy and celebration. Along with these, can we also walk in compassion with those who are broken and sad? Just as others and ourselves can experience these situations, so does the Lord.


Devastations such has this may occur in 30 seconds but can take 30 years to recover. Matthew 7:24 shares, “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” These storms, as we see, WILL come physically, but they can also come in other ways throughout our lives. Learn more about what is taking place now, what to do in moments such as this, and so much more. Also shared in this segment: weather, disaster, tornado, Moorings Apartments, Pensacola, calmness, peace, and abiding. John and Steve shared in this segment.
