Passion and Purpose

"When the Lord wishes to direct his people, his favorite mode of procedure seems to be not so much to thunder his commands from the mountains of clouds. Far more often some quiet, unknown man or woman is unconsciously attuned into a fit instrument for the work.  An intense desire is in some simple, natural way created in the person to accomplish something. More and more grows the desire and the joy in the labors of pursuit; more and more dawns upon their vision the possibilities until through the fruits of the labors of these inspired persons a people are found to have attained, to a more or less perfect degree, that particular goal and purpose desired by the Lord.”

Evan Stephens, “M.I.A. in Music,” Improvement Era, vol. 28, no. 8 (June 1925), 730
