If you’ve ever taught someone to swim, or remember what it was like for you when you learned, you’ll recall the doubt and fear—and also the realization that swimming is much easier once you let go of the fear, stop fighting the water, and learn to relax and enjoy the experience. Where in your own life do fear and doubt threaten to pull you under, as happened to Peter when he started to walk on water? Try to relax and simply go with the flow.
