I Reckon

I reckon.

That’s what I heard Charles say. Charles Billingsley. I was watching/listening to a You Tube. Charles was in concert at a church in Macon, Georgia. And right about 30 minutes in he was encouraging the congregation and he said reckon. And I was off!

Reckon. (Click here for Webster’s definition) 

Some would say that’s a pretty southern word. It’s a godly word too. The Scripture passage I was thinking of was Romans 8:18. There Paul utilized it as an accounting term. Reckon. Count it. Count it as so. By the way in the KJV you will find Reckon 33 times. Here’s a link in case you want to check it out. HERE

Romans 8: 18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. [source]

And so we count and if we count it so, I reckon that reckoning will change how we live. And I reckon, I need to do some reckoning.  

I reckon. Seriously smiling here. 🙂

Now. One more thing and I’ll press publish.

That Charles Billingsley you tube? You got an hour and 28 minutes?  I reckon it’s worth every minute I’ve invested. Perhaps you will too. 

And a bit (translation: a few minutes) before the I reckon, he sings a song, and a certain portion of the lyrics is this: You wrapped my soul inside Your Arms.  I don’t know about you but upon hearing those words I was wrapped in love this morning; and not just me but I saw in those words my Girls wrapped in His Arms too. Don’t you reckon some worship was going on? 🙂

I reckon I better close this epistle. 🙂

  1. “Reckon” isn’t a word I’ve used often in my adult years, but did use it growing up. It was an often-used word of my grandparents and parents. I guess I figured it to be a “Southern” thing because never heard it used when we lived in California. Thanks for pointing out the Biblical use. I reckon it’s time to deliberately add the word back to my vocabulary. Thanks, Kathie!
