Now may the Lord Jesus Christ and our Father God, who loved us and in his wonderful grace gave us eternal comfort and a beautiful hope that cannot fail, encourage your hearts and inspire you with strength to always do and speak what is good and beautiful in his eyes (2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 TPT).

I wrote this poem a few years ago in response to a similar situation.

Today, remember Jesus. Remember to speak up for those who don't have a voice. Be kind to everyone. Today, be last. Really. Jesus did not come to be served. But to serve.
Don't worry about your clothes or anything like that. God is looking for you and will provide all that you need. Tomorrow...tomorrow can and will take care of itself. Today is the day to live for God.
Remember that you have a Father in heaven who wants to lavish love on you. Ask. Open your eyes and watch what He does. Live today with a pure heart. You will see God. Today, put your faith in the One who calms storms.
Give your life to the one who heals the sick and takes away the sins of the world. Remember what He said about camels and needles. Sometimes money really can cause more problems than it's worth.
If you want mercy, you need to show mercy. Build people up with a kind word or gracious gesture. When you do good things for people...hide it from others. Do good in secret, and you'll have a great reward.
Forgive. Forgive everyone.
Let Him have your load. You weren't meant to carry it all by yourself. There is rest.
Don't forget: a little bread and fish will go a long way in the right hands.
Be Jesus to everyone you meet. Love God. Love others. Live the Gospel.
Today will be different.
