Parshas Beshalach - Just Keep Swimming

Klal Yisrael finds themselves trapped between the oncoming Egyptian army and the banks of the Yam Suf. An argument ensues. What should we do? One camp says they will never take us alive. Another says let us surrender. Another argues that we should fight till the death. And yet another says let us pray to God. Moshe rejects all of these plans.

In life we often find ourselves "stuck" in difficult places. Do we give up? Lower our expectations? Fight till the death? Pray?

In this shiur that was based on a sicha from the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rav Burg explains that when all hope seems lost, our avodah is just to put one foot in front of the other and just keep swimming. What appears to be a wall may be the miracle you were waiting for.
