Sadie Robertson Was Heading Home – Then 3 Men in Van Showed Up…

Statistically speaking, 50,000 of the 90,000 people who go missing in the United States are adults, with the majority of those adults being female. Duck Dynasty princess Sadie Robertson was almost counted among that number.

After being followed around the mall by three men, Robertson walked to her car in the parking lot. She quickly noticed a white van parked next to her vehicle and recognized the three men in it.

Luckily, the terrifying incident had a happy ending and Sadie was able to spread a message of awareness on her Instagram page.

“I smile with joy, peace, and thankfulness tonight before going to bed,” she began. “Tonight was a very frightening night. I walked out into the parking garage and saw a white van parked beside my car with 3 men that had previously been following me in the mall. You hear this story all the time…”

She continued:

“I won’t go into the details of mine however I’m very thankful tonight to be writing y’all a message of awareness. Even though we serve a GOOD God let me remind you that scary things can happen at anytime, because until the day Jesus comes back evil will still be in the world. First off, I want to encourage you in saying that that’s when the promises of the Lord are something we have to truly be so thankful for.”

Instead of being frightened, Sadie chose to be thankful for her good fortunate and gave the credit where it was due:

“Today more than any I’m thankful to be able to have joy knowing I’m protected in the shadow of His wing, I’m thankful my heart is able to have peace before I close my eyes though something got my heart beating pretty fast earlier today, I’m thankful I do not have to fear anything in the world because this world is not my home, I’m thankful for the big picture, and honestly I’m really thankful for good people.”

Even though we serve a GOOD God let me remind you that scary things can happen at anytime, because until the day Jesus comes back evil will still be in the world. First off, I want to encourage you in saying that that's when the promises of the Lord are something we have to truly be so thankful for. Today more than any I'm thankful to be able to have joy knowing I'm protected in the shadow of His wing, I'm thankful my heart is able to have peace before I close my eyes though something got my heart beating pretty fast earlier today, I'm thankful I do not have to fear anything in the world because this world is not my home, I'm thankful for the big picture, and honestly I'm really thankful for good people. For my earthly dad who answered the phone to calm my Spirit, and for my Heavenly Father who sends His Spirit to comfort me. For people like @hillsongunited for the words of their songs that I had embedded in my brain when thoughts of fear were wanting to take over. This may sound foreign to you, and if it is don't feel to lost… I hope some of my videos on YouTube can answer some questions. You can have that same thankfulness and protection. Secondly, I want to encourage everyone to be aware of your surroundings. We hear this a lot, but then we also snap chat a lot if ya know what I mean. We aren't necessarily the most aware of our surroundings generation, but a minute of not paying attention tonight could of created a whole different life for me. Be aware, always be in prayer, trust your "weird feelings" (Spirit Checks), and call your accountability ALWAYS no matter how sure you are of the situation. We all need help every now and then… don't be afraid to ask. I'm praying for bravery over every person who encounters a situation like the one I did tonight.

Women are very easy targets for predatory males because we’re the biologically weaker sex. This makes us more vulnerable to their attacks, so we need to make sure that we’re constantly aware of our surroundings and take our “weird feelings” seriously. It really is better to be safe than sorry.

Unfortunately, we live in a world where it is necessary to have these conversations, but that’s just the reality of the situation. Don’t allow anyone to take advantage of you and don’t let yourself become a statistic.
