From the moment the devastating news broke about the loss of TobyMac's son, fans from around the word have been lifting up the McKeehan family in their prayers. TobyMac has repeatedly said how grateful he is for that and how his family feels the prayers and support from the entire community.
This song, "21 Years," can be a special help for you if you find yourself working through your own grief and searching for words to help it make sense.
TobyMac released the following statement:
"21 years is a song I wrote about the recent passing of my firstborn son, Truett Foster McKeehan. I loved him with all my heart. Until something in life hits you this hard, you never know how you will handle it. I am thankful that I have been surrounded by love, starting with God's and extending to community near and far that have walked with us and carried us every day. Writing this song felt like an honest confession of the questions, pain, anger, doubt, mercy and promise that describes the journey I'm probably only beginning. The rest is yet to come. One thing I know is that I am not alone. God didn't promise us a life of no pain or even tragic death, but He did promise He would never leave us or forsake us. And I'm holding dearly to that promise for my son as well as myself."
