Take Up Your Mat sprang up at an event in Dallas, when four women brought four distinct messages about the woman at the well. It served as an exciting reminder that our God is multifaceted and reveals aspects of Himself to each of us. The more we share, the more we perceive of His nature. We grow closer to Him and each other. Of course the Triune God, the ultimate community, would reveal Himself in community! Each of us has a unique Spirit-given perspective of Scripture. Sharing personal revelation renews our love for the Living Word and spurs revival in our soul!
We become comfortable with Scripture and what we think we know. We become complacent with our place by the pool. This podcast is a celebration of our Lord as revealed through Biblical text. The prayer of Take Up Your Mat is a fresh word for all. May this podcast serves as a reminder to all of us that it’s time to get up!
Science and Common Sense Proverbs 3:5-8
Trust in the Lord completely, and do not rely on your own opinions. With all your heart rely on him to guide you, and he will lead you in every decision you make. 6 Become intimate with him in whatever you do, and he will lead you wherever you go. 7 Don’t think for a moment that you know it all, for wisdom comes when you adore him with undivided devotion and avoid everything that’s wrong. 8 Then you will find the healing refreshment your body and spirit long for.Proverbs 3:5-8 The Passion Translation
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. 7 Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. 8 This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.Proverbs 3:5-8 NIV
Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all. Run to God! Run from evil! Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life! Honor God with everything you own; give him the first and the best. Your barns will burst, your wine vats will brim over. But don’t, dear friend, resent God’s discipline; don’t sulk under his loving correction. It’s the child he loves that God corrects; a father’s delight is behind all this.Proverbs 3:5-8 The Message
4-5 If you want favor with both God and man, and a reputation for good judgment and common sense, then trust the Lord completely; don’t ever trust yourself. 6 In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success. 7-8 Don’t be conceited, sure of your own wisdom. Instead, trust and reverence the Lord, and turn your back on evil; when you do that, then you will be given renewed health and vitality.Proverbs 3:5-8 The Living Bible
Place your trust in the Eternal; rely on Him completely; never depend upon your own ideas and inventions. 6 Give Him the credit for everything you accomplish, and He will smooth out and straighten the road that lies ahead. 7 And don’t think you can decide on your own what is right and what is wrong. Respect the Eternal; turn and run from evil. 8 If you depend on Him, your body and mind will be free from the strain of a sinful life, will experience healing and health, and will be strengthened at their core.Proverbs 3:5-8 The Voice
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. 7 Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil. 8 It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones.Proverbs 3:5-8 ESV

Inside Out w/Luke Crowley 1 Samuel 16:7
7 But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”1 Samuel 16:7 NIV
7 But the Lord said to Samuel, “Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”1 Samuel 16:7 NLT
Eternal One (to Samuel): 7 Take no notice of his looks or his height. He is not the one, for the Eternal One does not pay attention to what humans value. Humans only care about the external appearance, but the Eternal considers the inner character.1 Samuel 16:7 The Voice

Our hearts are broken as we grieve with you the passing of our fearlessly creative and passionate Joshua Ortiz. He left a legacy of kindness, empathy and service to all people, especially the hungry, the poor and the marginalized. He was a loyal and fiercely protective friend. He was an incredibly talented designer and never ceased to push the boundaries of his craft. He was a strong leader who helped grow Ambrose Furniture Works into the beautiful trade showroom and design center it is today. He was the heart and vision of our business. While we may not fully understand God's plan in this pain, Josh would remind us that, "God is good all the time." Please join us in praying for comfort and peace as we mourn this profound loss. Thank you all for your support. Thank you for your friendship. Josh loved you. We love you.

It's Not "If" w/Jonnie Goodmanson
2 My fellow believers, when it seems as though you are facing nothing but difficulties see it as an invaluable opportunity to experience the greatest joy that you can! 3 For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up power within you to endure all things. 4 And then as your endurance grows even stronger it will release perfection into every part of your being until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking.James1:2-4 THe Passion
2 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. 4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.James 1:2-4 New King James
2-4 Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.James 1:2-4 The Message
2 Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. 4 And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.James 1:2-4 NASB
2-4 Don’t run from tests and hardships, brothers and sisters. As difficult as they are, you will ultimately find joy in them; if you embrace them, your faith will blossom under pressure and teach you true patience as you endure. And true patience brought on by endurance will equip you to complete the long journey and cross the finish line—mature, complete, and wanting nothing.James 1:2-4 The Voice
I believe that truth sets you free. I believe this with my whole heart. Even hard truth. I think the Bible says this because it is a natural law God put into motion. If I’m believing lies about myself, my body will respond accordingly. My relationships will suffer. I will act out of those lies and not the truth of who I am. Who God says I am.I think much pain in our bodies and minds comes from not accepting what is. Where you are right now. Because it is right there that God unconditionally loves you and wants to set you free. If you love yourself, in the mess, you’ll learn how to love others in their mess too.That what my workshops are all about. Loving God, loving yourself, and loving others. I love to weave knowledge of how the body works with how faith is worked out in that very body!livefreeworkshops.com
Body Intelligence and Spirituality
Body intelligence practices (e.g., yoga) utilize body sensations, breathing, and conscious movements to generate reliable and enlivening insight that cannot be arrived at merely by thinking. In this class, we’ll learn to shape and embody ideas, feelings, and impulses with the practice of “bodifying" to release inertia, debris, or blind spots. Familiarize yourself with the full spectrum of your body’s wisdom as you try on high-power and low-power yoga poses, shift between contraction and expansion, and integrate rather than dismiss, opposite poles of experience. Additionally, we’ll look to other philosophies for the spiritual wisdom gained through these practices and disciplines. Through this training you’ll become aware of the primary centers of emotional anatomy to develop your felt sense of wholeness with inclusive “presencing" practices—in any pose, any relationship, or any event.
