New single from Armond WakeUp with production from J. Rhodan released today via Illect Recordings.
Armond shares about why he wrote “Sweeter”…
God loves putting you in situations that make you realize #1 you aren’t as satisfied in Him as you believe you are (thanks to my dog Jana for that quote) #2 you experience enough of Him to know when you’re operating in His strength vs your own. Working with a record label to create this album after doing my thing independently for nearly 15 years has been a stretch (putting it lightly). It has tested any patience, resolve, & control issues I have. It has also made me realize that “Christ alone” is not a cliche, but it should be “life” as the hoopers say.
I know there is plenty to talk about in our world nowadays. & the Christian perspective is needed now more than ever. But we can’t give a Christian perspective without giving Christ first. I’ve spent so many years trying to artistically fit Jesus into situations & perspectives…but finally I’ve realized that He is the situation & He is the perspective. Until we grasp that, we can talk until we’re blue in the face but our words & lifestyles won’t have the same impact, Jesus truly is Sweeter than the best thing ever, beyond words, beyond a feeling, He just IS. 10 years into my walk as a Christian I finally get that. Hopefully this song & this album will reveal that to people.
