In today's Gospel reading from John 6, the disciples of Jesus was crossing the sea to Capernaum. It was evening and had grown dark. The sea was stirred up because a strong wind was blowing. When they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and coming near the boat, and they began to be afraid. But he said to them, "It is I. Do not be afraid." Remember this and trust in him to lose all your fears.
