God Will Provide

The torrential rain was unrelenting, and the town was evacuated when it became clear the dam couldn't hold back the waters for much longer.

As flood waters rise, a very religious woman put all her faith in God and won't leave her house. She says to all, "God will take care of me."

When local authorities come by in 4-wheel drive vehicles, going house to house, telling everyone to get out and rescuing those who need it, she says "God will provide," and refuses to leave.

Later, as the waters have risen significantly and surround the homes, the authorities come back in a boat. Again, they offer to rescue her. "God will provide!" she says, shooing them away.

Finally, the water floods her whole house, so she climbs onto the roof. A rescue helicopter comes by, but again, she refuses to get on, saying "God will provide."

Sadly, the woman is drowned in the flood and, when she gets up to heaven, she complains to God, "I had faith in you! I thought you would save me!"

"What are you talking about?" God says. "I sent you a Jeep, a boat, and a helicopter!"
