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.

BROKEN HEARTS

There are a multitude of reasons that someone can experience a broken heart.  In most cases broken hearts are caused by broken relationships.  Sometimes hearts are broken because circumstances in life become almost unbearable.

When you face being heart broken, remember that when you believed and received My forgiveness for your sins (past, present, and future),  I gave you My righteousness in exchange for your self-righteousness.  I provided a way that you can protect yourself against having a broken heart.

Daily put the breastplate of righteousness on your heart by declaring that you now stand in My righteousness, not your own righteousness.  When you feel that your heart is about to break, declare these words boldly out  loud: "My righteousness is of Jesus Christ." When you do this, no weapon that My enemy sends you will prosper. I came to heal broken hearts.

ISAIAH 54:17

IMPART

The word "impart" means to make known, to reveal, to give, to share a portion, to tell, and to communicate.  Every morning My Holy Spirit stands by to impart to you all that you need to know to face a new day.

I want to challenge you to take time in your prayer time in the morning to ask My Spirit to give you the exact portion from My Word that will empower you to be an overcomer each day.  My Spirit will be faithful to impart to you the exact portion of Scripture that will strengthen you no matter what you may face each day.

As you read the portion of Scripture that My Spirit gives you, He will also give you understanding, wise counsel from My throne room, and the might and power that comes with My anointing..

ISAIAH 11:2-3

SURVIVE

Many in this generation are making provision to survive during a nuclear war.  Dry food is being sold and other provisions are being stored.  The mindset in many is to do whatever is necessary to survive.

I have not called you to survive.  I have called you to overcome.  Taking actions to spare your physical body during crisis times is less important than taking actions to provide for your spiritual needs today and in the future.

Your life here on earth is just a hand's breath.  The moment you accepted Me, you entered the realm of eternity where you will live forever.  Daily take care of your spiritual needs by feeding yourself the Word of God, communing with Me which is your spiritual exercise, sharing My good news with others, and interceding for others. When you are engaged in these eternal activities, you will not have to fear the future or be in a survival mode.

REVELATION 3:12

EXPLORATION

Your country was discovered because a man had a spirit of exploration.  He wanted to go to parts of the earth that he did not know existed.

The spirit of exploration was in Columbus, and every one I created has that same spirit.  I placed that spirit within mankind because I desired for people to explore the wonders not only of My universe, but also of Earth.

I want you to use that same spirit of exploration to explore the hidden treasures in My Word.  I want to challenge you to read My Word out loud when you are in your quiet times.  My angels hearken to the voice of My Word and also the spirit of your inner man is built up when you read My Word out loud.  Ready to explore today?

PSALM 103:20-21

ADVANCE

Most everyone desires to advance in their careers, school, and knowledge.  These advancements are worthy earthly goals.  However, advancing in My kingdom is just the opposite of going forward.

You advance in your spiritual goals when you become more dependent upon Me.  I said that whoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter in." When I spoke this, I was speaking of the infantile stage of a child who depends upon his parents for everything.

True spiritual maturity in My kingdom requires you to be extremely dependent upon Me.  When you recognize the truth that without Me you can do nothing, you are advancing in My kingdom. As you trust Me to accomplish even the smallest tasks in life and to take care of the smallest details of your life, you will be advancing in My kingdom.

LUKE 18:17; JOHN 15:5

ACCESS

The word I hear often in this generation is "access."  Everyone wants easy access to most everything.  If the access to things is not instant then people often become frustrated.

You can rejoice today because you have instant access to My throne room.  At any time you can boldly enter My throne room through My blood and find grace in time of need.

You also have instant access to the help of My Holy Spirit Who stands ready to interpret My Word to you and to give you understanding of kingdom principles.  Immediate access to My Word is daily available.  All you have to do is open your Bible and read.  Enjoy every day the instant access I have provided for you.

COUNTERFEIT

I am concerned about the young generation in your age.  I notice that many of their relationships are based on communications on the internet.  Such relationships are counterfeit.

The goal of those who make counterfeit money is to make the money appear almost exactly like real money.  We had no such thing when I walked on Earth.  In fact communication with others was almost always face to face.  We had no internet or even telephones.

My enemy is in the counterfeit business.  He wants to seduce the young into thinking that communicating with friends is better on the internet.  I am face to face with you every day even though you cannot see Me.  I am all truth, and I desire to have a real relationship with you today.
Take time to be with Me daily, and you will discover what a real and true relationship is.

JOHN 14:6

GRACE

I want your conversations to be seasoned with grace.  This is a tall order, especially when you are having difficulty communicating with a person.  However, when you depend upon Me, I can give you immeasurable grace.

You will find that when you are gracious in your conversation with others, they will pay more attention to what you are saying.  I have promised that when you open your mouth I will fill it.

I will only fill your mouth with grace, when you submit your conversations to Me in the morning.  You have no idea what verbal interactions you will have with people during the day, but I know.
I will prepare your heart in the morning to be gracious even when people are rude to you.

COLOSSIANS 4:6; PSALM 81:10

UNCHANGING

I am the same yesterday, today, and forever.  When you read the gospel accounts of My life, observe what I did and what I said.  I healed all those who came to Me.  I delivered all those who needed deliverance. I  taught and preached the kingdom of God.

I am still doing that today.  The same power I was anointed with as I did mighty miracles dwells within you.  When you pray for people to be healed or delivered, recognize that it is not you ministering to people.  I minister through you by My power (the power of My Spirit).

Focus on My unchanging ability to do the same miracles I did when I walked along the Galilee.
Know that without Me, you can do nothing, but through that power working within you, you can do even more than I did when I walked on Earth.

ROMANS 8:11

WELCOME

As I was led by the Spirit in my travels throughout Israel, I took nothing with Me.  I only had the clothes on My back. I told a scribe who wanted to travel with Me: "The foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests: but the Son of man has nowhere to lay His head.

There were many of My beloved who welcomed Me  I was always welcomed in the home of Lazarus in Bethany.  Mary and Martha saw to My every need.  Their hospitality was so caring.

I want you to always have a spirit of hospitality, especially in these last days.  You may not be aware, but you could be entertaining angels.  There will be more and more visitations of angels as the day draws near to My second coming.

MATTHEW8:8:19-20; HEBREWS 13:2

URGENT

Whenever you feel pressed or pushed, take a few minutes and release whatever care you have to Me.
My enemy wants you to make decisions in haste.

I want you to wait on Me.  Waiting on Me means trusting Me with all of heart and releasing your cares to Me.  The promise is that when you wait upon Me, your energy will be renewed liked the eagles.

Eagles do not flap their wings.  They glide on the wind currents.  I want you to glide on the wind of My Holy Spirit today and rest in Me.  I have promised to perfect everything that concerns you.

ISAIAH 40:31; PSALM 138:8

DIRECT

Sometimes you may wish that people who share things with you would be more direct.  Often the message they are giving you is clouded with many facts that you cannot absorb.

I was very direct with My disciples about My future. I told them many times what I would face in Jerusalem.  I would die and then be raised again on  the third day.  They, however, did not get the message, and could not believe the women who told them that I had been raised from the dead.  They even said that their message was nonsense.

My disciples all finally believed when I appeared in the flesh to them.  Seeing is believing.  However, those who believe in Me without seeing My bodily resurrected form are blessed because the faith they express in believing and not seeing opens them up to believing all the promises written in My Word.  Today believe and receive the promises that are all yes and amen in Me.

LUKE 24:10-11; 2 CORINTHIANS 1:20
