John Waller Releases "But God" To Radio
First New Radio Single In Over Two Years Precedes Full Album This Spring From Radiate Music; CCM Magazine Premieres Song Story
Inspired by scriptures like 1 Corinthians 1:27, and written for a season that has been difficult for Waller and plunged so many people around the world into a spiral of hopelessness, "But God" is a declarative anthem of hope. CCM Magazine exclusive-premieres the behind-the-scenes story of the song on video this week.
"The story of 'But God' is all of our stories in the past year," perceives Waller. "There is so many moments in Scripture where there was trouble, persecution and where things seemed hopeless. And then there is that 'But God' moment. The biggest one was God demonstrating His own love by sending his Son.
"I think this song is going to encourage a lot of people," continues Waller. "I know when I listen to it and sing it, it brings hope, light, life. We may see darkness and chaos, but God sees new beginnings. I pray that this song will do that for you and for anyone who hears it."
Moving his family, including his wife, Josee and 10 children (seven biological and three adopted from Ukraine) during the pandemic from California to Atlanta, the out of work worship leader had no job and no savings account to rely on. Waller only had a renewed sense of calling that God wasn't done with him and his music.
"I don't know where it's all going. Never have," he says. "But I'm enjoying this journey like never before and I pray that 'But God' and the songs that will follow very soon after will encourage and bless you on yours."
Known for such inspiring hit singles as "Crazy Faith" (featured in the hit box office film War Room), "While I'm Waiting" (featured in 2008's No.1 independent film Fireproof), "As For Me and My House," "Awakening (aka The Coffee Song)" and many more, Waller has continually used his gifts as a singer and songwriter to inspire, educate and encourage the body of Christ.
