Despite losing his home, his wallet, and all of his possessions in the recent devastating tornados, Tommy Jackson still believes the Lord was “watching over” him.

Jackson, 65, told the Associated Press he suddenly had no way of getting money after his bank was destroyed. Plus, he had no form of identification and no credit cards after a deadly twister hit Mayfield, Kentucky, and obliterated everything he owned.

But he discovered something deeply important amid the piles of destruction: his family Bible — and that’s not all.

Tucked inside the Bible was Jackson’s birth certificate, a form of identification that will surely be much-needed as he rebuilds his life in the coming days, weeks, and months.

“The presence of the Lord was watching over me,” he told the AP.

Despite Jackson witnessing his home being destroyed right in front of him, the calamity hasn’t shaken his faith. He has no idea where he will go or what he will do, but one thing is for sure: Jackson, who was staying in a shelter earlier this week, isn’t panicked.

“I trust in the Lord,” he said.

Thank you Lord, that you are a God that never leaves or foresakes us. This man life is an example of a person with such great faith. I know that you will not fail him. Because you reward faith. Bless Mr. Jackson. It puts is to perceptive what this season is all about.
