Deep (Thoughts from) in the Heart of Texas
Thu., Oct. 16. 2014 6:08pm EDT

We got this email after sending out our appeal letter Tuesday:

After reading your email from yesterday, I felt the Lord pressing into my heart to let you know just how blessed I am by your music. I became a fan after hearing the song "Enter Samson" and I have been a fan ever since.

Each of your songs speaks to me about the love, forgiveness, mercy, and grace of the Lord. Some of your songs have encouraged me to go back and look up a scripture that was used in the song. Your music has been with me through good times and bad.

There is so much stress in my family right now, and Satan is doing everything he can to dig his claws deeper into my family. But the God that we serve is an awesome God, and He has already defeated the evil of Satan.

I believe that the Lord led me to your music to give me something positive to listen to with a Christ-centered message. There is so much negative music out there today, that it is nice to have something that anyone can listen to and enjoy while learning about just how great our God truly is.

To know that Christ didn't have to be whipped, or to die on the cross for our sins, and for Him to go through that pain and suffering, it speaks volumes about His love.

I have tried to keep up and purchase each new release that comes out but recent financial and health troubles have made it difficult for me to do so. However, as you mentioned in your message yesterday, prayer is powerful.

There is nothing that prayer cannot accomplish if we put our faith in Jesus to provide what we need. So I will keep ApologetiX in my prayers, that the Lord will provide everything you need and then some.

May God bless you, your music, and your families today and everyday. May He reveal His love to you in new and wonderful ways.

As if those words weren't encouraging enough already, here are a couple of other cool things in regard to Jeremy's letter:

He sent it on Wednesday, the same day J. was in the studio recording a song about how God has already defeated Satan. That song is called "God of Peace," and we plan to release it in November. When it comes out, refer back to Jeremy's letter, and you'll be as amazed as we were at how similar the lyrics are to what Jeremy said in his third paragraph.

Also, J. says that while he was reading Jeremy's email, our parody "Lived the Day You Died" was playing in the background, and just as he read Jeremy's words that "Christ didn't have to be whipped, or to die on the cross for our sins, and for Him to go through that pain and suffering," the song was playing the second verse with the words "You know they struck His body so much He could barely breathe when the hit Him, but Jesus He did not refuse even though they whipped Him, not a warm, fuzzy feelin' gettin' killed just for livin' "

Please join us in praying for Jeremy and his family. Don't worry; although he didn't ask, we hooked him up with some free new tunes, too.
