God Often Shows Us Our Life Missions through Burning Passions — A Quote by Winnie Banova in “Beautiful One”

[Regarding the story of the walk to Emmaus after Jesus was resurrected:] “This ‘vanishing act’ bothered me for quite some time. I asked, “’Lord, why didn’t You stay with them for a while and hang out? You labored with them all of that time. You were there, and they finally “got it,” but then You disappeared. You didn’t even hang out for dessert.’ Finally He helped me connect the dots. They were kept from recognizing Jesus on purpose—Jesus was teaching them a new form of communication. On their way back to Jerusalem, they were talking to each other and saying, ‘Were not our hearts burning within us? Were not our hearts burning when He was speaking to us?’ He was teaching them to recognize the burning of the Word in their hearts, and His burning passion in their spirits. Since Jesus was no longer going to walk around with them in His earthly body, they had to start learning this new communication system right away… Pay attention to those burning passions and desires, for you have no idea the places that they will take you to. As you follow their lead, you will find yourself doing exactly what God has called you to do.”
