“Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession” (Psalm 2:8, NIV)
Did you know it pleases God when we pray bold prayers and ask Him for big things? The God we serve doesn’t want us to just barely get by in life. He wants us to thrive and experience the fullness of His blessing. He wants us to not only have our needs met, but be in a position to reach out and help meet the needs of others, too!
When we ask God for something, a supernatural door is opened. We are showing our faith in Him, and faith gives God something to work with. In fact, scripture says that without faith, it is impossible to please God. He wants us to come to Him and know His goodness. He wants us to believe that He is good and that He has good things in store for
Today, I encourage you to get bold with your prayers. Ask God for big things. Believe that He is working behind the scenes on your behalf. Put your faith to work because God is faithful. He has big things in store for you and promises to do exceedingly, abundantly above all that you can ever imagine!

DIY Marbled Paper
For water mixture:
• 4 cups of water
• 1/4 cup of Methyl Cellulose
• Container large enough for your paper to fit into
• Liquid acrylic
• Forks or toothpicks
• Cotton paper
Step 1: Mix the methyl cellulose and water together in your container. We used a storage container we had lying around, but you can use a cookie sheet or tray. It just needs to be deep enough for at least an inch of water and wide enough for your paper. Once you have mixed the water and methyl cellulose together, let it sit for about an hour while mixing it about every 15 minutes. You want a thick, gel-like consistency, this keeps your paint from sinking to the bottom. Bubbles are bad so if the surface of your mixture is covered in bubbles, place pieces of newspaper on top, give it a gentle pat and then lift it off. This should remove the bubbles.
Step 2: Add your liquid acrylic. We used calligrapher’s ink because it was a perfect consistency and we didn’t have to worry about watering down normal acrylic paint. We used gold and hot pink!
Step 3: Now create your patten! You can use toothpicks or a plastic fork like we did (real fancy).
Step 4: Place a sheet of paper on top of the mixture and gently pat the entire backside so the entire surface comes in contact with the paint. You only need it sit atop the mixture for about 30 seconds.
Step 5: Grab one corner of your paper and lift it, give it a little shake so the extra gel runs off.
Step 6: Place your sheet of paper into another container that is filled with a couple inches of water. Gently pour water over the paper. This will help wash off the excess gel.
Step 7: Let your paper dry! To do multiple sheets you will need to repeat steps 2 and 3 between rounds otherwise you will end up with a blob of ink on your sheet of paper. Your paper might curl while it’s drying, we just ironed it down with a regular household iron.
You can use this paper for almost anything. Confetti, mini favor boxes, tags and wraps for large favor boxes.
