Kevin, thank you. I enjoyed reading your easy style with a sometimes difficult topic. Many folks struggle with the notion that once we choose to follow Jesus it should be easy and when it isn't the "faith wobble" you talk about keeps them from sticking with the journey deeper into Christ. Blessings!
