Called To Swim

What if God asked you to swim the English Channel?

ByGregory Mockett

“Though I too cried out many times, “Lord, save me,” Christ never seemed to reach down and lift me from my threatening waters. I took that as yet more proof I was bad . . . I had burned my bridge and was forever unrecoverable.” In a lesson that would change his life, Greg Mockett taught his Elder’s Quorum that God guarantees miraculous power to help them do hard things, but only when they are aligned with His will for them. Greg knew this principle was true—for everyone who hadn’t spent thirty-five years as an addict, out of line with God’s will. Compelled in recovery to turn his life and will over to God, Greg obeys when the Spirit commands him to swim the English Channel. Along this improbable and seemingly senseless journey, Greg faces discouraging challenges—yet another business failure, strained relationships, and health crises that prevent months of training just before his channel attempt—each confirming what he already knows deep in his heart: He is unworthy of God's love. Called To Swim is a real-life allegory of the lengths to which God will go to prove His love. For anyone who has ever felt God does not, or cannot love them, for anyone who has ever wondered ‘What on Earth is God thinking?’ or for anyone who simply loves to witness the miracles God works to rescue a soul, this inspiring true story is for you.
