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.

PURPOSE

Why did God allow this pandemic to occur?   Some question, "If God is all powerful, and He is in control, then why can't He stop death, disease, and disasters?

People forget that there is the god of this world and the God Who created the Earth, mankind, and the universe. 

Adam and Eve were given free will, and they chose to disobey God when they were tempted by Satan.  Satan then had the legal right to become the god of this world.  The good news is that My Father so loved the world that He sent Me to Earth to destroy the works of the devil.

LUKE 9:56

CHOICES/VOICES

Your life consists of daily choices.  If you choose to love Me with all your heart and to hear and obey my voice, you will have a blessed life.

The choices you make daily will depend upon what you hear.  Every day there are many voices that speak to your mind.  These voices come in the form of thoughts, not audible voices.  When you hear: "I think, I feel, I want," you are listening to the inner voice of your soul.

If you choose to hear your soul instead of My Word spoken to your spirit, you will open yourself up to give into your lusts. Start your day by taking time to hear My voice as you read My Word and commit your works to Me. When you make these choices, I can establish your thoughts throughout the day. Choose today to have a blessed day.

CLEAR

Many of you have wearied of the long "sheltering in place orders" that were issued months ago. You are eagerly awaiting the all clear orders so that normal life can resume.

You are living in the last days before I will return. Do not be surprised when there will be more life-changing circumstances that will try your patience.  What was normal before may never be again.
This is why I want you to live in the moment.

Fear is rooted in the "what if" thoughts that My enemy sends you.  I do not want your heart to be troubled during these uncertain times. Instead, trust Me with all of your heart and refuse to lean on your own understanding. Faith can only operate in the present moment, and you can walk in faith when you trust Me with your future.

PROVERBS 3:5; HEBREWS 11:1

KEEPER

If you become a friend to someone you really like,  you usually say: "That person is a keeper." I am a friend Who is worth keeping.  More than that, I am a friend that will keep you from falling. 

I am able to watch over you continually.  I neither slumber nor sleep.  I am able protect you and keep you out of danger.  I am able to keep from making wrong choices. I am able to keep you by supplying your daily needs.

Look back over your life today and review how many times I have kept you.  I will continue to be your Keeper for the rest of your life.

PSALM 121:3; JOHN 17:11-12, 15

SUBJECT

I gave you this word because it can be used as a noun and as a verb.  When I lived on Earth, I taught like the rabbis taught.  They taught by subject, and you will notice that my teachings were divided into subjects.

The word "subject" can be used as a verb.  We can subject ourselves to certain leaders or ideas. We can choose whose authority we want to be under, and this is the subject I want to teach you today.

When you choose not to resist temptation, you become subjected to Satan, and you will sin.  Sin is a choice.  You cannot blame Satan for causing you to sin.  Every day you have a choice to give into your fleshly desires or to subject yourself to My Holy Spirit Who will help you battle temptation.
What will be your choice today?

JAMES 4:7

DEAL

Most people want to discover a good deal.  They usually will share their discovery with those they love the most because they want them to take advantage of the same good deal.

When I spoke to the woman at Jacob's well, she soon found out that I did not condemn her and that I could give her living water that would quench her thirst forever.  The moment I finished My talk, she ran into town to share this good news.

The free gift of salvation is a deal that I want you to share.  Listen carefully to My Spirit as He leads you to share with others.

JOHN 4:5-30

CONTINUE

By now you are wandering how long it will be before things get back to normal after this virus crisis.  I know this is the question you ask when you go through a trial that seems to be unending.

I want you to have complete assurance that I am continuing to make perfect intercession for you throughout your long trials.  I told Peter that I would pray for him because I knew that he was going to be sifted by Satan.  My prayer for him was that his faith would not fail and that he would strengthen other believers when he was converted.

Yes, Peter was converted.  He was converted from self-sufficiency and pride to a place where he was totally dependent upon Me.  This is my plan for you in every trial.  I pray that every trial you go through will be used to strengthen others who are also experiencing enduring trials.

LUKE 22:31-32
