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.

PERSONAL

Sometimes when you ask a person about their faith their reply is, "That's personal."  You do have a personal faith (a one on one relationship with Me). However, I do not want you to keep your faith to yourself.  I want you always to be willing to share your faith with others.

Most people on Earth are seeking peace of mind and joy.  I came preaching the Kingdom of God and that Kingdom is not like a worldly kingdom.  It is not meat and drink, but it is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. This is the message that drew people to Me.

I want your faith to be contagious. Spend time with Me daily, and allow My Spirit to infuse you with My joy, My peace, and My Love.  In My presence is fulness of joy.  Others will want to have what you have and this will open the door for you to share My good news.  Blogs will continue Feb. 16.

CONDEMNATION

One of My enemy's major strategies is to get you to doubt actions that you have taken in faith.  He hates when you act and speak in faith.

Faith is the substance of things hoped for.  That substance of hope is My Word.  Faith is the evidence of things not seen.  That evidence is Me doing battle in the spirit realm for you. If you could see what your actions in faith and your words of faith will accomplish, you would not then have faith.

When you put your faith in the fact that your circumstances or the trials  you are going through will vanish, you have misplaced your faith.  Place all  your faith in Me and My Word.  Declare My promises over  your problems. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. When you place all your faith in Me and what I have said in My Word, you will have the victory. This is the victory that overcomes the world, even your faith.

SIMPLE

Life in your age is certainly not simple.  I lived a simple life while I was on Earth.  I had one set of clothes, and the food I ate was also simple - usually fish with bread.  I had few distractions and entertainment was also simple for Me.  Fishing was My main entertainment.

It seems that My enemy has designed all kinds of distractions today to keep you away from time with Me.  Seldom do people take time to just converse eye to eye with one another and even more seldom do My beloved take time to spend quality time with Me.

I would challenge you today to keep your thoughts of Me ever in your mind, and to converse with Me throughout the day.  You can lead a simple life in spite of all your distractions when you keep your mind stayed upon Me. Living in the Spirit will help keep you in My perfect peace.

ISAIAH 26:3

ACCOUNT

There will be a day when you will have to give an account for the things you have done on Earth.
I will be the judge on that day, but you do not have to be fearful to stand before Me.

My Word even says that you will have to give an account for every idle word you have ever spoken.
Again, you do not have to fear that day because I will be your advocate as well as your judge that day.

When you received Me as your Lord and Savior, I dressed you in My robe of righteousness, and though your sins were as scarlet, on that day they will be white as snow.  As far as the east is from the west, so far have I removed your transgressions.  Rejoice today because you are freely forgiven.

WELCOME

I desire for your home to be a home where all are welcome.  I also desire for you to welcome everyone you meet in your work place or wherever you go with My enthusiasm because I consider everyone a special treasure.

There are many on Earth who do not realize that they were created by Me and that their next breath depends upon Me.  Many also feel unworthy to receive all the love that I have for them.  You are My ambassador who I have chosen to share My good news with others.

Ask Me to infuse you with My joy, peace, and love today so that you have no prejudgments of people.  Instead, you welcome others with the warmth and light of My love.

SITUATION

People can find themselves in situations that are extremely difficult.  When such times happen, I want your to remember how I can help you face those situations with My joy and My peace.

I can help you either overcome difficult situations or I can change you so that  you are able to stay in praise and thanksgiving throughout those situations.

My Word speaks about Mt. Zion, the city of the Great King, and how it is beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth.  Mt. Zion is My city, the New Jerusalem, where you will be situated for all eternity.  The next time you think that you just cannot endure one more minute of a difficult situation, think of My beautiful city where you will enjoy all eternity.

PSALM 48:2
