Why do we put emphasis on those things we cannot obtain? 
When we need to be intentional towards that which we can attain 
Yet there's nothing wrong with striving towards certain goals 
Just remember to keep your integrity and your self control 
And whatever you do whether it be in word or act 
Do it in Jesus's name and thank Him for having your back 
Now is the time to stop being reluctant to God's plans 
He created you and you need to understand 
Yes you have free choice and free will 
Just make sure your agenda is God filled

Now clothed in patience, kindness, love and humility 
Forgiving unto others as God has forgiven thee
Now at peace with God and your community 
One body in Christ with a tranquil unity 
Now ready and able to learn, lead and live
To teach, to preach and reach out with all you have to give
Now to sing songs of praise in times of distress 
To magnify the spirit so that the angels are impressed 

To be intentional for the glory of God 
Now witnessing from the depths of your heart
Now operating with a godly intentionality 
Purposeful and driven with a spiritual mentality 
No longer adrift now focused and assured 
Building better relationships and aiming for more 
Now ready to fulfill the ministry that God has placed in you
Totally intentional in everything you now do
Comprehend you need to give God your all
And trust He will equip you when you're called 

Now to be intentional for the glory of God 
Precise and prepared now ready to start
