It’s such a common theme. “I will be happy when I have a bigger house". "I will be happy when my spouse changes". "I will be happy when my bills are paid, when I lose this weight, when my children get a job, when I get a new car.” This mental chatter goes on and on.
When we use the words, “I will happy when...” it causes our happiness to be forever out in front of us as an unobtainable goal. It makes it dependent on human circumstances. It makes us think happiness is a state of human accomplishment - something that we have to “get”. And let’s face it, do we ever really get it?
In the book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures Mary Baker Eddy writes,
For true happiness, man must harmonize with his Principle, divine Love... (p. 337:7)
To harmonize with divine Love means…
If you and I are made in the image and likeness of God, wouldn’t it seem effortless to be in harmony with divine Love? Isn’t it God’s plan and will for our lives enough? Do we really have to control every aspect of human existence to be happy? Can we really trust God? He knows our heart and deeply loves us as His dear children.
Let’s make the choice to be happy now, independent of human circumstances. Let’s make the decision to feel God’s love for us and quiet our minds and hearts with the love that is present for us in this moment. Just think of all He has done for us already!
God has our backs. He is continually working on our behalf.
Father/Mother God, I pray to hear your voice today. It is your will that I want to listen to and follow. I know that you have only good in store for me. I know that when I harmonize with who you are, and what I am as your likeness, I will experience abundance in the form of health, opportunity and abounding joy and happiness. My hope is in you, dear God. I thank you for all that you have so graciously given me. I trust my future to you, wholeheartedly, as I humbly forge ahead with my hand in yours. I am happy because I am in harmony with you and I thank you for this heavenly day.
Thank you dear God.
Here’s to a Heavenly Day in harmony with Love ~ Enjoy...

Let us feel the divine energy of Spirit, bringing us into
newness of life and recognizing no mortal nor material power as able to destroy. Let us rejoice that we are subject to the divine “powers that be.”
