"Jesus knew exactly what He was doing when He taught us to pray, “May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” The prayers that ultimately make us happiest aren’t, “God, give me what I want” or “Please make my life on this earth better.” They are, “Lord, what do you want? How can I serve you? What do you want me to do for you and your Kingdom?” That’s the reason that Jesus, “for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame.”

As we give ourselves to God He has a way of helping us understand that the story He started long ago in our lives will end well, come what may. His Word promises that “He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1.6)".
