“...Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it...” Psalm 81:10
Do you have your mouth open wide today? In other words, are you expecting God to fill you and increase you beyond measure? Are you ready for Him to satisfy your needs and desires with good things?
Think about a baby bird. When they are ready to eat, they open their mouths wide. They trust that they will be fed. They expect it. They look for it. They are ready for it. It should be the same way with us. We need to keep our spiritual mouths open by expecting the goodness of God to satisfy us.
Negative thinking is like closing your mouth. A closed mouth can’t be filled. But Jesus is saying today, “Why don’t you take the limits off?” Why don’t you trust and believe for supernatural opportunities?

Pysanky Egg Dyeing
The inspiration for these Easter eggs dying technique comes from Pysanky, the ancient Ukrainian folk art of wax-and-dye egg decorating. To create these designs, stick metal pins in pencil erasers, dip the pinheads in melted wax, and draw wax patterns on hard-cooked eggs before dyeing them.
Paint-Splattered Easter Eggs
For a modern take on Easter egg decorating, you'll have to get a little messy. Once your dyed eggs have dried, dip a paintbrush in black paint. Hover the brush over the center of the egg and tap the handle to splatter the paint. Play around with the technique -- the harder you tap the brush, the bigger your splatter marks.
