TobyMac just announced the release of his first album titled, “Life after Death” after the passing of his oldest son nearly 3 years ago.
As you can imagine, it’s been a hard road the last couple of years. TobyMac shared that the first few songs he wrote were really sad, lamenting songs. At one point he even wondered if he would always stay there in his songwriting. But, then God began to give him hope, as he stood on the words from his song, “Help is on the way.”
And then as many a songwriter has done…TobyMac wrote one phrase on a napkin:
“You’re still the goodness in my life.”
As he started to believe that and see how God gives us little glimpses of His goodness, even in the valley, this song, “The Goodness” was born.
