Music: Armond Wakeup – Sweeter
Armond Wakeup released a new single, “Sweeter” produced by J. Rhodan, from 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.”
