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.

REMINDERS

It is good to have lists and notes to remind you of the things that you need to do as you prepare for a trip or even for just a normal day.  There are certain things that I want you to always remember, and you do not have to make a list for those things.

My Holy Spirit is able to bring to your remembrance everything I said when I walked on Earth.
Remembering My life on Earth is important, but I also want you to never forget one thing.

The one thing that I want you never to forget tis that I love you with an everlasting love, and that I will be with you always even until the end of the Earth.  Not only that, I will be with you for all eternity.

JOHN 14:26

Please remember Tom in prayer as he has major surgery Monday, January 15 early in the morning to remove a small malignant tumor from his bile duct.  It is a five hour operation.  I will continue blogging if I have time.

HURDLES

There are always hurdles that you will have to jump over throughout your lifetime.  You may feel so weak that you think you cannot be strong enough to overcome the obstacles that you face.  However, it is My joy that will give you the strength to overcome.

Keep this picture in mind whenever you are faced with hurdles that seem to be insurmountable.  I hold you in My arms, and I am face to face with you as you jump over these hurdles.  Yes, I will jump backwards over the hurdle, and I will not let go of you.

My servant Paul compared life to a race, and that was a good comparison.  He said, "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith."  All you have to do to finish the race of life well is to put all your faith in Me to jump the hurdles with you.

1 CORINTHIANS 9:24; 2 TIMOTHY 4:7

FACTS

You live in an age when you have so many facts flooding your mind through the media and the computer.  Often the facts you hear are not based on truth.

I am the way the truth and the life.  Keep in mind that your focus daily should be on Me, and when it is,  My enemy will not be able to deceive you.  He is a liar and the father of lies. 

With all that is going on in the world, you could become anxious and worried about the future of your country, family, and yourself.  Remember, however, that  you live in this world, but you are not of this world.  You live in My kingdom that is filled with My joy and peace.  In the days ahead, stay your mind upon Me, and I will keep you in perfect peace.

JOHN 14:6, 8:44; ISAIAH 26:3

VISITS

There were many joyous occasions that I experienced while I walked on Earth.  I had no place to sleep or eat, but My disciples and Mary, Martha, and Lazarus always showed me such great hospitality.  

I looked forward to visiting the home of Lazarus.  Mary and Martha saw to My every need, and above all I knew I could just be myself with them.  I was able to relax.  I felt the peace of My Father in their home.

My desire is that every home that belongs to My beloved be a home where people will know the peace of My Father and My joy.  Fill your home with song while you work in your home and spend time in My presence.  Then your home will always be prepared to receive visitors.

LUKE 10:38-41

NOW

Some of My beloved are too concerned about the future.  They see the troubled times, and as they age, they wonder what their last years on Earth will hold.

Others regret the past, and keep reliving the past.  One of the most effective tools in My enemy's arsenal is distraction.  He wants you to be so absorbed in thinking about the future or the past that you miss the opportunities I give you moment by moment.

Faith can only work in the present.  Today, I want you to be alert to come against the distractions the enemy tries to perpetrate on you.  Instead, keep your focus on Me and the moment.  I have works for  you to do today.  Ask the Holy Spirit to help you not to miss any divine appointments or opportunities to share My truths and My love with others.

CAPTIVATED

The best way for you to stay free from any oppression from My enemy is to yield yourself to My Spirit and be captivated by My love.  Some of My beloved forget that one of the most powerful weapons in their spiritual arsenal is My love.

I want you to receive My love every morning.  Allow Me to sing songs of love to you.  Allow Me to minister to you.  Just a fresh soaking in My love as you spend time in My presence will fortify you for whatever battle you may face during the day.

In My presence is fullness of joy and pleasures forever more.  It only takes a few minutes in My presence daily to fill you afresh with My love and you will then be equipped to impart My love to others.

JOHN 15:9-10; PSALM 16:11

CAPTIVE

When I walked on Earth, I encountered many people who were held captive by Satan.  I came to destroy the works of Satan.  It was My joy to set these people free from demons, oppression, sickness, and disease.

I now have given you all power over all the power of My enemy as you bind demonic spirits in My blood and command them to leave in My name.  Many of My beloved do not know where to command those wicked spirits to go.  It is not yet time for them to go to the pit, but you can send them to Me, and I will deal with them.

Remember that I am over every principality and power. Use your weapons of warfare with the assurance that whatever you bind on earth is bound in heaven and whatever you loose on Earth is loosed in heaven.

DIRECTION

Whenever I sought direction as I walked on Earth, I spent time in prayer with My Father.  Sometimes I spent all night in prayer.  Many seek to be assured about the direction that they feel My Spirit is leading them.

There are several ways that this assurance can come.  The major way is to ask Me for wisdom and then search My Word for confirmation about what you hear.  Another way to receive assurance that you are taking the right steps is to acknowledge Me as much as possible.  I promised in My Word that if you acknowledge Me in all your ways, I will direct your steps.

Assurance that the path you are taking is the one I have designed for you will come as you trust in Me with all of your heart and delight yourself in Me. The steps of a good man are ordered by Me, and I delight in those who go My way. .  Pray about every step and I will light the next step for you.

AROUND

I spent the ministry part of My life simply traveling around the Sea of Galilee.  So many of My beloved feel like in order to minister, they have to travel for miles, when actually their ministry is in the moment.

Faith can only work in the moment.  Whoever you are speaking to as you go around your neighborhood, community, family, or church is your ministry.  Faith is now.

Make a resolution this year to be aware of the "Ministry of the Moment."  Ask Me daily for divine appointments, and I will go before you and give you My Words to speak to whoever is with you in each moment.

HEBREWS 11:1
