SOMMER FAMILY BLESSING

Welcome to the blog for Linda Sommer.

My Blog will cover three subjects:

WORD FROM THE LORD, FAMILY, and MINISTRY.

WORD FROM THE LORD
Every day I spend time with the Lord in the morning and He speaks to my heart words that are encouraging, exhorting and sometimes rebuking.

At first, I felt not to share these words with others, but then I realized I am just one of His followers. There are many people who need a word daily from the Lord, but they do not have the time to seek Him. This is why I decided to share the words I received from time to time. The messages are in first person as the the Lord relayed them to my spirtual ears.

FAMILY
We have three sons and nine grandchildren. There is something new happening all the time in the Sommer family. I will post some of these events of interest.

MINISTRY
Tom and I have traveled the world. To find out more about our ministry you may consult our webpage -

I will keep you updated on future speaking enagements and ministry developments.

YESTERDAY

 I want you to live in the moment.  Much has happened in your yesterdays.  It is meaningful to go back to history and see how history repeats itself.  It is also constructive to not hold on to hurts from the past.  

It is important that you never let the sun go down on your anger, and that way your yesterday of strife can be forgotten and forgiven.  I told people not to think about their tomorrows.  Instead, I wanted them to trust in Me for their tomorrows.

Since this virus crisis has come to the world, many are concerned and worried about their future.  Again, I want you to look to Me and trust Me with your future.  Release your yesterdays and do not think about your tomorrows.  Instead, live in the moment because your faith can only be activated in the moment that you are experiencing.

MATTHEW 6:34

STEADFAST

 This is a time in the history of your nation that you and all other believers need to be steadfast.  Paul wrote this exhortation to the Corinthian church: "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, un- moveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, for as you know that  your labor is not in vain in the Lord."

The writer of Hebrews wrote: "For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end:

My disciples had to hold steadfast to my teachings when I walked on Earth.  I had shared many promises with them, and they learned that I was faithful to fulfill those promises.  Today as you face great upheaval in your nation, I want you to hold steadfast to My promises because it is through My promises that you can partake of My very divine nature.

ATTITUDE

When I taught on the mountain that they now call "The Mount of Beatitudes," I was sharing the blessings that come to those who have attitudes that glorify Me. I shared nine attitudes that I wanted My disciples to have.  The main attitude that I wanted them to have was a gracious, humble, attitude that hungered to live according to My Word.

I knew if they had a gracious attitude that they would be able to receive the grace that I freely would offer them after I left them.  Grace is the supernatural power through Me to do what is impossible in the natural.

I want grace to abound in your life, and as you totally depend upon Me moment by moment each day, I will be able to flow My supernatural love, peace, and joy through you.  Thank Me today for making My grace available to you.  

MATTHEW 5:3-11

LAW

The ten commandments were given to define sin and to help mankind realize that the keeping of the whole law was impossible.  I made it clear in My teaching that if one of the laws in the commandments was broken that the whole law would be broken.

I came to fulfill the law, not to do away with it.  When you observe My life as you read the gospels, you will discover that I broke most every religious law.  The religious leaders in My day prided themselves on keeping the laws, but I wanted them to realize that they could not earn righteousness by keeping religious laws.

When I died on the tree, I broke the curses of the law upon mankind.  I was the perfect sacrifice that made it possible for those who received Me as their Lord and Savior to have right standing and a relationship with My Father through Me.  It always pleases Me when you recognize that I have given you the robe of righteousness and I have crowned you with My glory.

BENEFITS

Most everyone wants a good benefit program that will guarantee delivery.  There is a benefit program in My Word that will always produce lasting benefits.

This benefit program is designed for people who fear Me.  You will see many benefits in My Word that are promised to those who "Fear the Lord."  To fear Me does not mean to be afraid of Me.  You fear Me when you have awe and respect for My power and majesty, and when you have a willing heart that wants to obey Me.

Those who fear Me will be honored,  taught My ways and established in My Word, protected, given discernment, wisdom, and understanding, blessed by having their desires fulfilled, shown mercy, experience long life.

PSALM  25:12, 33:18;34:7, 103:11, 111:10, 115:13, 119:38, 145:19; PROVERBS 10:27

ENTER

 When I gave the parable about the talents, the master or lord who gave five talents to one servant complimented that servant because they servant had invested his five talents and those five talents earned five more talents.

The master said to the servant, "Well done, you good and  faithful servant: you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things: enter you into the joy of your lord.

I am so pleased when you invest time in people and also invest monies in My kingdom work on earth.  Your actions delight Me, but I want you to know that I am delighted with you always because you invest time with Me.  You will always enter into My joy when you spend time with Me every day.

MATTHEW 25:20-21

LEAD

 I know that when you were young you sang the song: "Where He leads Me, I will follow."  You were making a declaration that you would follow in My footsteps. You always pictured in your mind that I was leading you with My face turned away from you. 

Today, I want to give you a different view of what it means to follow Me.  I want you to know that I never turn My back on you.  I am always face to face with you.  Picture a proud father who is teaching his child to take the first steps.  He stoops down at eye level with the child, and then he slowly backs up with his arms outstretched to catch the child if  that child falls.

I want you to have the confidence that I am at eye level with you, and I have My arms outstretched to you to catch you.  If you start to stumble in as you walk where I am leading you, you will fall into My loving arms.  If you are too weak to continue your walk, I will carry you the rest of the way.

MATTHEW 16:24; PSALM 17:15
