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.

STOREHOUSE

The storehouse mentioned in Malachi 3:8-11 is in heaven, not on Earth.  My storehouse is filled with everything you have ever invested in My kingdom on Earth.  It includes the record of souls that have been saved because  you took the time to share the truths of My gospel with them.  It includes the account of the investments of money you have given to further My kingdom on Earth and your offerings to the poor.

Your investments in My kingdom on Earth includes food not only for My houses of worship on Earth, but also the bread of My Word that you have given to many on Earth. 

Your offerings to the poor will pay great dividends. When you give to the poor, you lend to Me.  Today let more of your banking be done in My storehouse in heaven, and I will open up the windows of heaven to give you a blessing and I will also rebuke the devourer for you.

MAIL

During this season, you will be receiving many cards from friends and family.  I want to challenge you this year to pray over each card you receive.  Whoever cared enough to send you a card would welcome your prayers.

Prayer is such a wonderful way to reach across miles to strengthen people as you lift them up to Me.  You are living in very troubling times, and more than ever My body on Earth needs to be strengthened.

As you write your Christmas letter and send your card to others, I also want you to ask Me if there is a verse of Scripture I want to share with that person.  My Holy Spirit will always be faithful to give you just the right Scripture for each individual.

PSALM 119:105

ALONE

I do not want you ever to feel alone.  When I said "I will be with you always, even unto the end of the world," I meant it.  My presence is always with you and My Holy Spirit is within you and without you.

Even though you cannot see My Holy Spirit, My Father, My angels, or Me, I want you to take a few minutes daily to just sit quietly and ask My Holy Spirit to help you realize that we are always with you wherever you are.

I know what it feels like to be alone.  When I died on the tree, I did not even feel the presence of My Father.  That is when I cried out , "My God, My God, why have you forsaken Me"  I bore your loneliness when I bore the sins of the world.  Later I sent My Holy Spirit to help you daily.  If ever you feel lonely, meditate on these truths.

MATTHEW 28:20; MARK 15:34; JOHN 14:16

JUSTICE

I  have heard this statement exclaimed by many on earth: "God is not fair!!"  This is a true statement.  As you read the old covenant, you will see how My Father dealt with individuals.  God is not fair.  He is just.

My Father has given Me the right to be the judge over nations and individuals at the end of time.  I will be a just judge because I came to Earth as God in the flesh.  I can identify with all that you go through.  I was tempted in all points just as you are tempted with one exception.  I was without sin.  I hungered. I thirsted.  I felt pain, and when I bore the sins of the world in My body, I experienced the weight that sin causes.  That weight literally, emotionally, and physically broke My heart.

Today, if you are tempted to judge someone, I want you to release all judgement to Me.  Only I have the power to know motives and to know what is in the hearts of people. 

HEBREWS 4:15

MOVING

Moving residences is always difficult.  Whenever you have to vacate a  home, you suddenly recognize how much stuff you have.  To move ahead spiritually, there also is an accumulation of stuff that needs to be removed.

If you have not forgiven all those who have wronged and hurt you, you will not be able to get rid of the stuff (patterns of thinking in your mind or strongholds).  Pulling down strongholds begins with forgiveness.  If  you hold on to the bitter memories of broken relationships, you cannot move ahead spiritually.

Everyday, you have a choice to forgive or not to forgive.  You will have many sleepless nights if you choose not to forgive.  Forgiveness is the platform for all spiritual progress. Today could be a fresh start for you.  Give all resentment and anger to Me.

MATTHEW 18:23-35

HUMILITY

I humbled Myself and denied My Kingly glory when I came to Earth as a babe.  My Father had great faith in mankind to take such a risk.  I am human as well as divine.  I know it is beyond your human understanding to comprehend the virgin birth.

My Father chose Mary to be My mother because she was so very humble.  When the angel told her that she would conceive a son by the Holy Spirit, she responded with these words, "Be it done unto Me according to Your Word.". 

Mary was willing to accept the truth that was spoken to her without hesitation or doubting.  She humbly and willingly submitted herself to be My Mother.  Humility is accepting and obeying the truths of My Word without questioning, doubting, or reasoning.

PHILIPPIANS 2:5-8; LUKE 1:31-38

COMMUNION

Many churches observe communion on the first Sunday of every month.  I prayed that all who believed in Me after I ascended to heaven would often have communion together. 

As My beloved gather for this special time to remember My sacrifice, I want them to recognize that the life that they now live in the flesh, they can now live by My faith within them.  I have already gifted every believer with My very faith.

Yes, My faith dwells within each believer and more of My faith within each believer is released as that believer joins together with other believers as one body to give thanks, praise, and worship Me and to hear My Word.  This is the importance of attaching yourself to a viable church or body of believers who know Me and love Me.  Forsake not the assembling of yourselves with fellow believers as the day draws nigh to My return.
