God’s will is that we be happy now. In asking that God’s will be done, we are instructing our minds to focus on the beauty in life, to see all the reasons to celebrate instead of mourn. Usually we figure out what we think would make us happy, and then try to make those things happen.
But happiness isn’t circumstance-dependent. There are people who have every reason in the world to be happy who aren’t. There are people with genuine problems who are. The key to happiness is the decision to be happy. ~ Marianne Williamson ~
