Invitation can restore Joy
You know that experience when you have been lying on your arm and all of a sudden it has gone numb and you can’t feel it anymore. You have to shake it and move it in order to get the feeling back. In invitation I have discovered that we have numbed the feeling of fear by ignoring it. Fear in invitation is often God’s prompting to invite. When we numb the dark emotion of fear, we numb the light when we lose our tolerance for discomfort we lose the light of joy. So get into the activity of invitation and shake your fear and restore the possibility of joy.
