Inspired by Quotes from Mother Teresa, “Joy is a net of love in which you can catch souls.”

Moore believes that those who are in search of a joyous life should seek their God-given purpose, which is instilled in us at an early age.

C. S. Lewis and Mother Teresa could speak so freely on the topic of joy was because of their fixed objective in life.

Moore shares that the lack of joy often stems from a longing to find concrete meaning in life. She touched on the observance of young children by using her son as an example, and explained that children are fearless when it comes to their destiny in life. Her young son’s fascination with becoming a professional wrestler was logical in his mind, and the hindrance of doubt was not a concern for him.

Moore explains that children express their desires freely and are not burdened with thoughts of failure. Many children conceive of themselves as superheroes. Unthreatened by obstacles in life, most children move ahead with a carefree nature.

Many Children Conceive Themselves To Be Superheroes Not At All Threatened By The Obstacles In Life

Count It All Joy!

Count It All Joy!

Moore expresses the need to examine your first passion in life to uncover the powerful purpose behind your existence. This journey may take time; however, you can find joy right in front of you in the midst of your journey.

Even though life may seem like an obstacle course filled with ongoing challenges, such as a broken marriage or issues with finances, children, and health, holding on to your peace is important.

Staying focused on joy, or defining a purposeful life under such stressful conditions, is a tough choice, but through the power of faith and knowing that this too shall pass, we can strive to set our eyes on a higher purpose than ourselves to obtain lasting joy here on earth.

Taking time out to love your children or to serve in your community takes the focus off of human admiration.

Life has a way of evolving. Moore shares that in time you will find that all of the barriers built to destroy your path will eventually subside.

During the process your faith will grow stronger. Moore shares, Know that we are love, designed for purpose.”

After Moore’s enlightening message, I left with the understanding that giving power to hopelessness weighs down the spirit. Joy paves the way to a meaningful life, and lasting joy outweighs a lifetime of sorrow.

James 1 2-4

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
