Perhaps this is the time to relook and review what you have. The story of a poor widow, who was left with debt by her husband dying is an interesting one. In particular how God used the prophet to solve the problem. The widow was given a task of collecting a lot of big empty containers in order to pour the little oil on them. All the containers she managed to collect got full with the oil from little jar, she then sold the oil from these containers in order to get money and pay her debtors. Solution to her problem was provided starting from what she already had. Perhaps solution to your own problems will come from what you already have.
