The Squeezings of my Brain Grapes.
A good marriage allows two people to work as a team to be far more resilient, resourceful, and effective than they could be as individuals. That is how that is supposed to work. What doesn’t work is just being married for the sake of being married- togetherness as a means unto itself. That leads to two unhappy people and invented drama. Christian marriages are meant to have a goal, and that goal is serving the Lord as a team.

MELT YOUR FACE!!

Christians, as a culture, like things to be safe. They want to know how things will end before they begin, to be sure that everything will work out okay. The problem with that is, an authentic Christian life mandates taking risks. The Bible is full of people taking huge, faith-based risks.

The Poolhouse Guru - Psalm 141:4
44 plays

thebridgechicago:

"Do not let my heart be drawn to what is evil”

The Poolhouse Guru takes those words, written  by a struggling man thousands of years ago, and combines them with elements of jazz, disco, hip-hop, and electronica. The kind of thing you will only find in BridgeBox.

There is an idea that to be a serious Christian means to be busy with Christian stuff all the time, that the super committed person is the one running themselves ragged all the time. The reality is that a healthy Christian life is balanced, and a balanced life has to include time for rest and fun.

A New Song That’s As Big And Loud As Your Deepest Questions

What if Jesus understands the stuff you’re most ashamed of? What if He loves you still and wants to help you move through it by giving you something even better? Whatever you’re struggling with, the Scripture says Jesus isn’t condemning you - He understands you and has something amazing for you.

Awwwwwwwww yeah!

Jed Brewer - Everything That's Wrong
122 plays

thebridgechicago:

At it’s core, God’s love challenges our beliefs about ourselves. A God who somewhat tolerates would, at times, feel more sensible than a Father who adores us in spite of our issues. This powerful acoustic track presents a challenging interaction between Love and doubt - one that all of us need to have for ourselves.
