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.

TRUMPET

There needs to be a trumpet sound of truth throughout your land on this day that you celebrate the founding of your nation.  Your declaration of independence was founded on the truths in My Word.

I want you to pray that there will be many who will speak the truths of My Word in your nation.  Pray for My Spirit of truth to resound like a trumpet throughout your land.

Your enemy is the father of lies.  Bind those lying spirits who are spreading lies about how your nation was founded.  Bind those spirits of destruction who have the assignment to destroy the history of your land and every vestige of truth in your land.  Release My Spirit of truth to be spoken from the leaders in your nation.  The declaration of My truths over your nation will establish freedom in your land.

JOHN 8:31-32

FOUNDATIONS

Paul warned Timothy that in the last days perilous times would come.  Paul described how the moral character of many in the last days would be non-existent.  He said people would be lovers of their own selves and lovers of pleasure more than lovers of Me.

You are seeing demonstrations of the destruction of the foundations of your nation. My Word says, "If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do? (Psalm 11:3)" 

As you celebrate the founding of your nation, pray that the foundations will be restored.  Your nation was founded on the principles found in My Word.  Pray for My body in your nation to humble themselves and pray and seek Me with all of their hearts and repent and turn from their selfish, sinful ways.  Then I will heal your land.

2 TIMOTHY 3:1-5; PSALM 11:3; 2 CHRONICLES 7:14

ROUTINES

This pandemic has caused a pause in many of our usual routines of life. There is something comfortable about routines.  We have certain days to do certain things.  As many shelter in place, the days of the week often seem the same.

Some people are now able to resume their jobs and their usual routines, but things are definitely not like they used to be.  This pause can be beneficial if you use this pause to draw close to Me.

David, My beloved psalmist, recorded many pauses in his routines of life. One of those pauses occurred when David returned home to find his home burned to the ground and his family missing. He could have lost all hope. However, David learned to encourage himself in Me during distressful pauses in his life.  You can have a pause that refreshes even in the midst of this pandemic when you draw close to Me by praising Me.

1 SAMUEL 30:1-6

ENEMIES

Some have called the virus in the pandemic the" Hidden Enemy."  This virus is something that you cannot see, but you know it is all around you. Your constant prayer is that you and all you love will be protected from this deadly virus.

Few people realize, however, that we have other hidden enemies all around us, and they can be just as deadly as this virus.  Satan and his demonic armies are in the air around us.  My Word says that Satan is the prince and power of the air.

Knowing these facts could tempt you to pull the covers up over your head every day and vow never to go outside again.  The good news is that you do not have to fear these silent foes if you have given your life to Me.  Surrender every day to Me, and I will defend you against every foe.

EPHESIANS 2:2

AMUSEMENT

 Amusements are forms of entertainment.  Now that amusement parks and beaches are open, people are flocking to these places even though the virus crisis is still present.  It is human to seek forms of amusement.

The fleshly part of you will always seek amusements to please and satisfy your five senses, but amusements only give temporary pleasure and satisfaction. Paul wrote Timothy that in the last days people would be lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God.

The pleasure I have to offer you is fullness of joy and pleasures that will satisfy you both now and for all eternity.  You will receive lasting satisfaction and the very path to a fruitful life when you spend time in My presence.

2 TIMOTHY 3:4; PSALM 16:11

LOW

This has been a low time for so many who have lost their jobs or loved ones because of this pandemic.  My prayer always is that during the low times in your life, you will allow Me to draw you upward into My presence

I have promised that if you will draw near to Me, I will draw near to you.  I know when you experience much loss in your life, that you often feel like you cannot go forward.  When those times come, I want you to pour out your fears and even your complaints to Me.

I have sent My comforter, My Holy Spirit, to you, and He is waiting to embrace you with the warmth of My love.  I am the glory and lifter of your head, and I want you to allow Me right now to not only lift your head, but also to lift away the burden you are carrying.

JAMES 4:8; PSALM 3:3

EXCELLENT

When you got an A+ in school, you knew that you had done an excellent job of studying.  You can be thankful that I do not grade you on your spiritual walk with Me.  It also will give you great comfort to know that you have a companion Who will help you achieve excellence in all your endeavors.

When you accepted Me as your Lord and Savior, My Holy Spirit came to dwell within you.  He came to set you free from any bondage that would hold you back from living a life of excellence.  Once My Holy Spirit invaded the lives of My disciples, their endeavors to share My gospel became excellent.

I want you  to have an A+ in glorifying Me (making My presence known) on Earth.  This is only possible as you yield to My excellent Spirit within you.  Daily submit your whole being (body, soul, and spirit) to My Holy Spirit, and He will work within you both the will and the power to do My good pleasure day by day.

JOHN 14:26; PHILIPPIANS 2:13
