I've never seen anywhere in the Bible where it says that God wants us to be happy (or healthy and wealthy for our charismaniac friends).  There is huge difference between joy and happy, in the spiritual realm.  Even Webster includes in the defintion of joy "the feeling of satisfaction."  There you go.  We are supposed to live with joy; therefore, we are to live in satisfaction and content with the knowledge of our salvation through Jesus Christ.

There is a time to laugh and a time to cry.

Jesus knew which was which.

Luke 6[/u]
21  Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.
22  Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.
23 Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy:[/b] for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.
24  But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation.
25  Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep.

Joy now, in knowing the day IS coming when we will have GREAT REJOICING IN HEAVEN!

Hebrews 6[/u]
12  For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
13  For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
14  But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
6:1  Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,

We still have PLENTY to learn!

I have two points to make here.  For one, Jesus was sorrowful for our sins.  I make that distinction, because there seems to be a coupling of our sorrow for our sin and Jesus' sorrow.  What's more, Jesus was sorrowful for His Own's rejection of Him:

He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.
John 1:10-13

Yet Jesus was not lacking in joy.  Happiness is circumstancial.  Joy is present regardless of circumstances.  Jesus joy was set before Him, and was in Him as He did His Father's will.  

"that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death"
