The Strong Swimmer
As Jean rode the bus down to the marina she said to herself this was going to be most wonderful summer ever. She was going to learn how to sail a boat! When a group had gathered in the boathouse, Bob, the instructor, made the following announcement: "Before you can learn to sail you must pass a swimming test. You'll be required to swim across the lagoon safely and without tiring. Then we'll know it's safe for you to take one of the boats out alone."
Jean's heart sank. She wasn't afraid of the swimming test; it was the "tiring" part that worried her. She had never been a distance swimmer, and now she was going to miss the fun of sailing because of this weakness. But in the Christian Science Sunday School she had learned to always turn to God in prayer. Right then all she could think of was, "Be still, and know that I am God." Ps. 46:10; Being "still" to her meant listening quietly to what God told her of her real selfhood as His child.
