A short note to
If you've been receiving The Hem Devotional for a while, you may notice
that I'm sending this issue on a new day of the week -
Saturday. That's because I know how busy we can all get
during the week, so I'm trying out a new day to see if that works
better for you. Feel free to respond to this email and
tell me what you think!
If you made it to our first
Reaching for The
Hem LIVE TeleClass, you know that God was really
moving! I received several messages from participants while
the class was still in session - It was definitely humbling...
"Sister Ameerah thank you so
much! I think God will use this TeleClass to draw me
into a deep, abiding, amazing relationship with Him..."
"Hallelujah - Amen
and Amen with all that you have said so far.
blessed - God is so good. Thank you JESUS..."
Our next free
will be this Thursday, August 7th at 8:30pm Eastern Standard Time. Now,
I call it a TeleClass, but you can actually join in online
which many people prefer.
you aren't already registered for our free classes, you
can register here!
Looking forward to chatting with you more on Thursday!
P.S. If you missed our class on Thursday, you don't have to
totally miss out. You can still get a copy of our class, and
personal teaching notes. And, I'll tell you a little
you enter the word - SeekersSpecial

Is Your Mirror
A Reflection on How We See Ourselves...
By Ameerah Lewis
Have you ever heard
of the term
"self-image." It is a term used to describe the way that we
ourselves. Not necessarily how we would describe ourself to
someone else, but how we really
was teaching a class the other night, and God put something on my heart
I want to share with you today. It's about
a dangerous mistake that has become all to prevalent...even in
Let, me explain...
If you were to ask most people who they really
were, Christians included, they would begin to rattle off their
occupation, their marital status or their education level.
worse, many of God's children still identify themselves with their past
mistakes - Things that, in God's eyes, don't even exist.
Status, problems and accomplishments: Deep down, those are the things
that many think
define who we are and what we are worth. But, is your worth
really based on your IQ level or how much you can accomplish in one day?
Even in many churches, your value is determined by the number of
committees that you are a part of. But not, to God.
His love for you isn't based on what you can do for Him - To
Him, you are worth so much more !
As someone who has given your life over to Christ, your worth is no
longer determined by you, but by Him.
is one of the reasons why so many Christians are filled with so much
anxiety and self-doubt. They spend much too much time
looking at their own insufficiencies instead of looking at Jesus'
sufficiency. They think that they have to EARN their own
If we make the transition from being
Self-Sufficient to being Christ-Sufficient, we can go from having a
Self-image to having a Christ-image.
That means that we
can finally look past this temporal world for our answer to the burning
question: Who Am I? We can look outside of ourselves into the
eternal realm in Christ and proclaim:
Because of Jesus' Sacrifice, I am who God says I am!
And Who Does God
Say You Are?
You are a child of God and joint-heir with Christ! (Romans:8:16-17)
You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus! (2 Corinthians 5:21)
You are the head and not the tail! (Deuteronomy 28:13)
You are above and not beneath! (Deuteronomy 28:13)
does not matter what your occupation is - Whether you're a doctor or
you're unemployed. It doesn't matter what your family says
you - Regardless of whether if it's accolades or condemnation.
It only matter's who God says that you are.
is it so vital that we base our Self-image on Christ? Because
your job may change. The opinions of others may change.
But, He will always remain the same!
Change your Self-image to a Christ-image, and see yourself in a whole
Until next time...God Bless!

The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the
children of God:
if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if
so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might
be made the righteousness of God in him.
-2 Corinthians 5:21
And the Lord shall make you
the head, and not the tail; and you shall be above only, and you shall
not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the Lord your God which
I command you this day and are watchful to do them. -Deuteronomy 28:13
