    “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.

    Toby, thank you. I'm 23 and I grew up in a abusive Christian household where I thought I had to be perfect to be loved by God because that's how my worldly dad is. Sadly, I walked away from God and church, living in sin to cope with my circumstances. However, God had to wake me up by showing the repercussions of my sin to get my attention which made me turn to Him. I've been perusing God like crazy this past year. Through the healing and hurting, I had doubts if God would truly accept me back as His son. However, God is being a Father to me than I ever thought possible. God is always waiting for the prodigal son to come to the end of himself and to return to Him. He will accept the prodigal with open arms.

    Ever thought that the people who disliked the video may be people who are in need of help, love, guidance, Jesus Christ? Some may have done it just because but some may actually be crying out for help and don't know how to get it so they dislike something like this. Idk but regardless there is a reason and we shouldn't judge because we have no real answer.

    I am so sorry that you had to go through this. No one could have seen it coming. You are one of my family’s favorite Christian artists, and we were all shocked when we heard the news. Your son was beautiful, and so was the song. It was a stunning tribute to his life and to all that he was, to all that he meant to you, the rest of his family, and to all the people who were lucky enough to know him. Grief is a hard thing to go through, but just know that you’ve got a lot of people on your side, praying for you and asking God to show you unfailing love during this time in your life. My favorite part in the song is towards the end, when you shout and cry out. It was like you were letting every single emotion going through you out, declaring your pain to God, crying out to Him to heal your broken heart. I liked that. Some people think they have to bottle it up, but you didn’t. You were honest and human, and that’s one of the most beautiful things in this life. “God blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” Matthew 5:4 (NLT). “The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.” Psalms 34:18 (NLT). “He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.” Revelation 21:4 (NLT). “He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds.” Psalms 147:3 (NLT).

    Since the day Truett passed, my mind keeps going back to the dcTalk "Supernatural" DVD, where Toby is talking about being a Father and there is footage of Tru pulling himself up in his crib. As a teenager, I looked up to Toby for his lyrics and music. All of these years later, I continue to look up to Toby, but not only as an artist, rather as a father and a husband. Toby and Amanda, odds are you will never read this and that is OK. Just know, and I am sure you do, you are loved and prayed for daily. My kids, Briley, Maddux and Decatur have been influenced by your music and my wife, Lindsay and I have been blown away with your strength and unrelenting faith in God throughout this.

    Hi TobyMac, I wanted to tell you how sorry I am for your loss. I am sorry for what you and your family are going through. God's world is beautiful, but not perfect. It's wild and dangerous. We warn our children and by the time they're teenagers they want to go their own way and believe they're invincible no matter how much you love them and try to protect them. They go their own way sometimes and remind us at times we have no legal right to tell them how to live their own lives. It not your fault. You love your son and family. you did all that you could in your power as a parent. You're a good father and husband and that clearly shines through in your music. Sometimes there are things that our children are dealing with that we are not qualified to handle or fix. It's over our heads. It's not what we are trained in medically and even if we are, they rather listen to a stranger than us because we are too close to the situation. God blessed you with such an amazing gift to worship and praise him and draw people closer to God. Don't let anyone make you feel guilty about that. Don't let anyone condemn you for it's from the enemy. He is the accuser of the brethren. This reminds me of the story about Job. He was wrongfully judged by friends and people. All people could see was his blessings on the outside but, didn't know his heart. They were wrong and hurtful to Job at a time when he could not even hold himself up and understand why. I am telling you to be strong and trust in God no matter what and He will restore you. The world we live in is not designed to prevent suffering. Horrible things happen that we don't deserve. We are tested and how we pass these tests is key. Times like this truly shows us who our real friends are. I've been there, TobyMac. It hurts, but I get stronger day by day and so will you. I declare it in the mighty name of Jesus. You will be emotionally healed. You will get through this. You're not alone. God walks with us through the storm. It doesn't happen overnight, but gradually you will get stronger. Draw closer to God. I am praying for you and your family. God Bless!!!

    I hope TobyMac and his family is alright and that they can overcome this sad season of grief. People who love them and surround them with encouragement and hope will help them to overcome. Grief is a life-long process. It never really goes away. It leaves people broken. It appears that some of the comments here regarding Truett's death have a very condemning spirit behind them. An infirmity does not mean that one does not have God's favour. God judges by what is in one's faith and heart and not by the outward appearance or circumstances surrounding one's life.

    First I want to say I send my condolences to this family. It is sad when someone so young is gone. I do not want to come across as not having compassion or empathy. However, I must say God did not take his son. The lyrics near the beginning of the song questions God...why did He take him. His son chose to get high. He just didn't think it would be his last time. Also, no one here can say that his son is with the Lord because you don't know. Be careful what you say. You don't speak for the Lord. We have to be mindful that we don't mislead people by saying you can live your life how you want & make heaven your home. Let's use this opportunity in supporting our President for the building of the wall. Not for politics sake, but because of all the lives we are losing. The fentanyl is being manufactured & coming from China. We know this. They have created molds to put this stuff in to make people think they are buying someone else's prescription instead of what's coming from China. Its a war & we are losing the battle. It takes next to nothing of this stuff to kill you. We heard about Truett because of his father....how about the others, hundreds a day, that we don't know their name.

    It always hit me when I heard those lyrics at the end of “Steal My Show”: “My dreams; my fears; my family; my career-take it away,” And I thought, “Man, that could be an expensive prayer.” And I always marveled at the boldness-just putting it all out there, the complete surrender. Of course, we should all do that, but to step right up and say it so publicly-it was always a challenge to me: am I willing to say that, to truly leave the most precious things in my life completely in God’s hands, to say it out loud? Now God is making you live it, my brother. And I can hardly imagine. But we are not our own. May He give you grace through the valley. May He cause your light to shine brighter than ever for Him. Know that you have a lot of people praying for you. Thank you for blessing us for so many years. Now may God’s peace and love be upon you and your family.

    Why does everyone believe everyone goes to heaven immediately? Who knows if tobymac’s son ever practiced true repentance. I’m tired of everyone believing they are saved when they don’t even know what being saved means. True repentance means turning completely away from sin and not turning away from a result of fear of going to hell but out of love for God. I’m not there and I don’t pretend to be. I know if I die today, I’m going to hell. It’s time for people to wake up! Narrow is the path, and even the martyrs aren’t in Jesus’s arms until judgement day. Yet, everyone things when their family members die that they are in heaven. Stop lying to yourselves. Read revelations. Stop sugar coating God

The things we had to try and fill the void in our bodies mostly left you to live another day. The things out there now is killing our kids and youth. The adversary has a powerful tool. GOD will use the things mean for evil and change it for HIS good and HIS glory. I believe Truett's service to the LORD here on earth has just begun. The world needs an awakening of what is out there doing this to so many. The adversary thinks he got on of GODS warriors! It is just time for Truett to begin!!! GOD BLESS you Toby and your family.
