Walking on water is not so much an act of faith as it is an act of abandon. To abandon the status quo, abandon logic, abandon your own memory. In fact, it requires full abandon of self. After everything that you know has failed you, you will cling hardest to what you realize is your last hope.

The water disappears in His gaze.
