There is a Christian song titled, “Intentional” by Travis Greene. Some of the lyrics are,” All things are working for my good. He’s intentional. Never failing”. I find that no matter how down I am this song takes me out of the flesh and places me in the “spirit.” I completely forget about whatever it was that had me down and I am in the spirit of worshiping the Most High!!
I hope that this blessed someone. Peace and Love.❤️♥️
