I've heard there are three phases of faith:
  • finding life
  • losing life
  • finding life again.
The Greeks understood this to mean not just physical life but also the conscious self... personality, soul.
Some truths just have to be experienced in order to be understood. I think loss is one of them.

Losing helps you find your way again. Some days we have to lose the certainty of who God is and what God wants. We need to lose the certainty of what it means to be a Christian. I do anyway.
