The Day My Worst Nightmare Came True

My Worst Nightmare

Four years ago, Cameron Cole came face-to-face with his worst nightmare. The one thing that he hoped and prayed would never happen, did happen.

In the midst of overwhelming pain, Cameron and his wife found themselves clinging to Christ through twelve key theological truths—truths that became their lifeline in the midst of unthinkable grief.

As he writes in his new book, Therefore I Have Hope: 12 Truths That Comfort, Sustain, and Redeem in Tragedy, “Throughout the journey of my worst nightmare—my descent into a dark, sad valley—the Holy Spirit would remind me of truths that comforted my soul and sustained my life.”

In the video above, Cameron reflects on their story of loss . . . and the slow path toward redemption sustained and empowered by God’s ever-present grace. In doing so, he reminds us to cling fast to the hope that all of God’s children have in and through Christ, our crucified yet risen Savior.
