Music Monday: Be Intentional!

Happy Monday,

I hope you had a restful weekend. I spent mine with a couple of friends and I must say, I feel well rested.

Walking through the streets of Instagram and I saw someone’s post on the fact that this January is the fastest January in the history of Januarys. It did make me chuckle. What do you think? Do you think January is speeding by or we are just growing up and realizing that time waits for no one?

Let me know what you think in the comments section.

Anyways, earlier this year I was having a conversation with a friend and through the course of our conversation, she challenged me to be “intentional” in the year 2019. I nodded without taking much thought to it until recently when I couldn’t get the word out of my mind.

To be sure, I looked up what intentional meant. Google helped by defining the word “intentional” as being deliberate and doing something on purpose. That definition stopped me in my tracks and punched some sort of reset button in my mind.

You know God is intentional about us His children. Like He is absolutely deliberate in His dealings with us. He does everything with a purpose in mind.

Travis Greene simplified the “intentionality ” of God in his song intentional. The lyrics go thus:

All things are working for my good, yeah

‘Cause He’s intentional

Never failing

I know that all things are working for my good, yeah

He’s intentional

Never failing

All things are working (all things are working for my good)

‘Cause He’s intentional (He’s intentional)

Hey, and He’s never failing (never failing)

All things are working for my good (all things are working for my good)

He’s intentional (He’s intentional)

He’s never failing (never failing)

All things are working (all things are working for my good)

All things are working for my good, yes they are, yeah (all things are working for my good)

All things are working for my good (all things are working for my good)

All things are working for my good (all things are working for my good)

‘Cause He’s intentional (He’s intentional)

‘Cause He’s intentional (He’s intentional)

Never failing (never failing)

He, He’s intentional, thank you God

‘Cause He’s intentional (He’s intentional)

Never failing (never failing)

Say it again, say that all things are working for my good

Yes, they are, He’s intentional, yeah, never failing

Say that all things are working (all things are working for my good)

‘Cause He’s intentional (He’s intentional)

Hey, and He’s never failing (never failing)

And all things are working for my good (all things are working for my good)

all things are working for my good

(All things are working for my good) all things are working for my good

(All things are working for my good) alright, hands up, sing

We can smile ’cause we know it’s working

Through the hurt and the pain

I know it’s working for my good

I know it’s working for my good

This what what

I don’t have to worry ’cause

It’s working for me, yeah

It’s working for me, yeah

And I believe it’s working for me

I can smile again

And I don’t have to worry ’cause

It’s working for me

It’s working for me

It’s working for me

Come on sing that I will say that

I don’t have to worry ’cause

(It’s working for me yeah) It’s working for me

(It’s working for me) and I can hold my head up

(It’s working for me) get your confidence back

Sing I don’t have to worry (I don’t have to worry ’cause it’s working for me)

My faith is rising now (it’s working for me)

And although I can’t see how (it’s working for me)

I know that He’s intentional (He’s intentional)

Yes, He is (He’s intentional)

He’s been doing it for a long time (He’s intentional)

He’s been doing it for a long time (He’s intentional)

And I’ll be giving my trust now (He’s intentional)

I’ll be giving my praise now (He’s intentional)

He’s intentional (He’s intentional)

And He’s never failing (never failing)


Romans 8:28 puts it this way, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”

This week, my challenge is simple. In whatsoever you do, do it with purpose and be deliberate. Also, remember that no matter the pain or heartache, there is a Loving Father in Heaven that is intentional about us His children.

Until next Monday,

Be intentional.
