A Heartbreaking Poem from Nicholas Gonzalez

Nicholas has gone through a long and heartbreaking journey with his wife as cancer ravaged her body.

She recently passed but Nicholas is pressing on, as we all must do when tragedy strikes.

God is using Nicholas mightily to spread His truth as he deals with the loss of his wife. Many would blame God or lose hope. But Nicholas continues to place his trust and faith in God and is a bright light in a very dark place.

Check out Nicholas’ website and check out his ministry on Twitter.

Here is Nicholas’ first poem posted on our website. Enjoy. I’ll be posting more poetry from Nicholas soon.
