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.

ESTABLISHED

When you look at the word, "established," the word, "stable," is almost completed in this word.  Stability in the age you live is hard to establish.

There is one way that you can feel secure and stable in a world that is falling apart.  That way is to establish yourself in My Word.  My Word is eternal, and all things on Earth are held together by My Word.

You will not fall apart when you see the turmoil this world is experiencing now because your heart is fixed (established) on My Word.  The psalmist David wrote: The righteous man "shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.  His heart is established, he shall not be afraid....(Psalm 112:7-8)

PSALM 112:7-8

CONCENTRATE

There are so many distractions in the day that I know you find it hard to concentrate.  This is why it is important to spend just a few moments with Me in the morning before you start your day.  It was My practice to get up well before dawn to meet in prayer with My heavenly Father.

This might be asking to much of you, but just fifteen minutes spent in quiet with Me after you get out of bed will enable you to face the day with joy.

In My presence is fulness of joy and pleasures for evermore.  Once you focus on Me and commune with Me for just a short time in the morning then your thoughts will center more on Me throughout the day.  I so look forward to these quiet times with you when no one can distract you from hearing My voice.

PSALM 16:11

APPOINTMENTS

Most people have appointments that they have to keep.  There is one appointment that everyone will keep.  There is an appointed time to die.  Your days are written in My Book of Life.  It is appointed to man once to die and after that the judgment.

As you pray for your loved ones, I want you to pray that they will make that appointment to see Me face to face on time - not a day early or a day late.  Pray that you and your loved ones will finish the works that I have for them to complete.

The works for you and all who believe in Me were written before the foundation of the Earth.  Ask Me today to reveal the works for you this day.  Pray that you will not miss any divine appointments.

SURROUND

You are never alone.  I promised to never leave you or forsake you.  I am with you.  My Holy Spirit lives within you, and My holy angels are all around you.

My angels camp around those who love Me and who fear My name.  When you leave your home to go out into the world, be aware that My loving arms are surrounding you, and that I can commission My angels at any time to come to your aid.

It brings Me great joy when you recognize My never changing, everlasting presence with you and also the presence of My spiritual army surrounding you.  There is no need for you to ever be afraid.

PSALM 34:7

WILLING

Are you willing?  That is the question I ask you today.  Are you willing to accept My will as written in My Word.  If you are willing to do this, then I am able to fulfill My Word in your life.

All you have to do is to depend completely on Me to do My Father's will through you.  However, you must know what his will is.

To discover the will of My Father, simply read the gospels in your Bible and watch what I did while I was on Earth and what I also said.  I came to reveal the will of My Father.  Study My gospels and learn.  You will never be the same.

1 JOHN 1:1-3

WEAK

There will be times when you feel emotionally and/or physically weak.  During those times, I want you to turn to Me because I am the strength of your life.

Strength will flow through you as you meditate on these words, "My joy is your strength."  Sometimes your joy well will seem to be dry, and it is at those times that you need to draw deep from the wells of joy that I have placed within you.

During those times you can also sing, "Spring up oh well within Me."  Refresh yourself by praying in the Spirit and meditating on My Word.  Remember that when I walked on Earth, I was touched with every feeling of your infirmities (weaknesses), and I stand ready to minister to you.

MOUNTAIN

I said if you have the faith as a grain of mustard seed, you can say to the mountain remove to another place and it will remove,  I know that there have been many mountains in your life that you wished had been removed.

Often you feel like you are just going around and around the same old mountain when you confront similar trials.  When this happens I want you to speak to the mountain of trials with faith.  I want you to speak grace to every trial you experience no matter how high that mountain seems.

Grace is the supernatural ability to do what is impossible in the natural.  Right now while you are experiencing a trial that seems endless, I want you to speak grace to that mountain and it will finally be removed.  In the mean time I will give you all the grace you will need to tunnel through every mountainous trial.

MATTHEW 17:20

REALITY

I have heard the expression, "You just have to face reality!"  When I hear this statement, I desire for that person to face Me because I am the ultimate reality.  The definition of reality is the quality of being true to life.

I am life.  I am also truth. Few people comprehend the true fact that without Me they can do nothing.  They cannot even take their next breath.  

The next time you hear someone say, "You just have to face reality!"pray for that person to face Me.  Whatever situation they are facing can be faced with confidence and strength if they will turn to Me by giving every care to Me in prayer.  My presence then will give them joy and pleasures forevermore.  Now that is reality.

PSALM 16:11

CAREFUL

I have heard this saying, "Be careful!"  Some people give this exhortation to their loved ones when they leave their home to go to work or to school.  They say, "Be careful out there!"

You do live in a world that is full of danger and evil.  However, I want you to hide this truth in your heart as you make your exit from the safety of your home out into the world.  "I have overcome the world."

I have promised to be with you always.  You never have to fear being in this world where there is much tribulation.  There are five reasons that you do not have to fear.  I give you these five reasons today: "Fear not, for I am with you.  I am your God.  I will strengthen you.  I will help you, and I will uphold you with the right hand of My righteousness."  Remember these five truths as you exit your home into the work place, school, or market place today.

ISAIAH 41:10

REGARD

Daily as you read My Word, I want you to regard it with respect and awe.  I regard My Word even higher than My name.  You may ask why.

The reason I regard My Word higher than My name is because I am the Word of God in the flesh.  It is My Word that reveals this true fact to you.  Many in your age have been deceived.  They think I was just a good teacher or a prophet.

The truth is that I am life.  I am truth.  I am God in the flesh.  Study My Word today and see how those truths contained in My Word will set you free if you regard them with awe and apply those truths to your life.

JOHN 8:32

GENEROUS

I desire for you to be not only a cheerful giver, but also a generous giver.  I am an abundant God.  It is My joy to give you life and to give you life more abundantly.

I desire for you to be generous not only with your monies, but also with your time and your gifts.  There are vast numbers of people who stand ready to receive your prayers, My love, peace, and joy that I give generously to you daily.

Today, offer yourself fully to Me to be used by Me to anoint you with a generosity that will amaze you.  When My generosity flows through you, many, many, many will be touched and will draw closer to Me.

2 CORINTHIANS 9:7;JOHN 10:10

ASK

You have not because you ask not.  Look at this word, "ASK."  Each letter in this word, "ASK" could be used as an acrostic that will reveal exactly how to receive anything from Me.

Ask and you will receive WISDOM.
Seek and you will find DISCERNMENT.
Knock and the door will be opened to you for DIRECTION.

These are the three exhortations that will place you in a position to receive everything you need in order to be guided by My Holy Spirit every day.  ASK AND KEEP ASKING.

JAMES 1:5-6; MATTHEW 7:8
