You want to know why you deserve this series of financial woes.

Why do you see each thing as a punishment? Perhaps, on the contrary, it became time for you to receive much more than ever before from Above. Only that in order to receive such good, you must first become small.

Like the seed, you must first come down from your tree and lose yourself within the earth before you can sprout and grow into a mighty oak. Like a metal spring, you must first become small before you can unleash your power. Like the olive, you must allow yourself to be crushed to discover your oil.

And all these travails are His way of helping you along that path.

If so, you already know the remedy: Make yourself small on your own, and relieve Him of the task.

The truth be said, you will find that you can do the job much better—far less painfully and with faster results.
