Job 10:15 (New International Version)
If I am guilty—woe to me! Even if I am innocent, I cannot lift my head, for I am full of shame and drowned in my affliction.
Isaiah 8:14a (Amplified Bible)
And He shall be a sanctuary [a sacred and indestructible asylum to those who reverently fear and trust in Him];
Afflicted for nearly 20 years, Jeremy Scott found peace and solitude in a Higher Power, our Lord and Creator of all things, Jesus Christ. The struggle began at age 15 when the combination of a broken home and the loss of his spiritual mentor drove him to replace all the good feelings he once possessed with smoking marijuana, meth, and cocaine.
One night, he found himself trying to escape all the pain that had crept in over the years by attempting suicide. That night, God moved like only He can move. Not allowing Jeremy to ingest a lethal amount of cocaine.
God started a recovery process for him, removing drugs from his life. With this miraculous event taking place, Jeremy vowed to reach as many people as possible with the Message, so that, they too can experience the joy of the Lord through song and testimony.
In August of 2009, he teamed up with drummer, Chris Anderson, and they set out to form not just a music group, but a ministry. There are far too many people suffering from not only drug and alcohol addictions, but also lust, disease, loneliness, anger, doubt, and so much more. Through the struggles of each member of us as individuals, and as a group, we step forward not just to rock, but to tell you there is an Asylum, a safe place and refuge of hope and peace.
We are called to make Him famous through us.
