Help Is On The Way

“I was walking through that valley and kind of went downstairs one morning and turned to Psalms,” TobyMac said. “I read this scripture that said, ‘God is rolling up his sleeves,’ and I thought, ‘Wow, I’ve never seen that in the Bible.’ What beautiful imagery, when you think of the God of all creation rolling up His sleeves on my behalf – on our behalf. And I just thought, ‘What promise.'” “And I immediately put the pen to paper right after I read the verse and I wrote this chorus and it just said, ‘Maybe midnight or mid-day, He’s never early, never late. He’s going to stand by what He claims. I’ve lived enough life to say…Help Is On The Way.'” Toby’s son, Truett McKeehan died in Oct. 2019.
The 56-year-old went on to say he finally found the hope that had been lost for quite some time.
Directed by Eric Welch, the song’s music video is one that TobyMac is excited about, remarking how he “loves music videos that are intriguing, leaving a sense of wonder.” It also features a special guest, his son, Judah McKeehan.
