Seamus found himself in dire trouble.
His harvest had failed and he was in serious financial trouble.
He was so desperate that he decided to ask God for help.
He went into the Church and began to pray… “God, please help me, I’ve lost my farm and if I don’t get some money, I’m going to lose my house as well, please let me win the lotto”.
Lotto night comes and somebody else won it.
Seamus went back to the Church… “God, please let me win the lotto, I’ve lost my farm, my house and I’m going to lose my tractor as well“.
Lotto night came and Seamus still had no luck.
Back to the Church… “My God, why have you forsaken me?? I’ve lost my farm, my house, my tractor and my wife and 17 children are starving. I don’t often ask you for help and I have always been a good servant to you. Why won’t you just let me win the lotto this one time so I can get my life back in order?“.
Suddenly there was a blinding flash of light as the heavens opened and Seamus heard a quiet voice: “Seamus, meet me half way on this one, buy a ticket“.
