This year, I decided to take a look at all the Re’s the Lord gives us. Re’s have popped up in various places. Bible study. Sermons. Worship. The Re words are everywhere. And I realized (see, there’s one), they are amazing words. And the Lord offers them to us. So, I want to offer them to you.
I thought I’d only do a month’s worth, one a day. But as I compiled the list, I came up with over 52 words that start with Re.
That’s a word a week.
Not sure what this will look like or if I’ll last the entire year. But I’ll start. And see where the Spirit takes me.
Merriam Webster’s defines Re as again; back to an original place, condition, etc.
The British Dictionary defines Re as indicating a return to a previous condition.
Online Entomology Dictionary describes the word origin and history for Re:
A word forming element meaning “back to the original place; again, anew, once more,” also with a sense of undoing,” c.1200, from Old French and directly from Latin re- “again, back, anew, against.”
And as I mentioned, I’ve discovered over 52 to words (and my list keeps getting longer).
Each week I’ll post a new word. With questions the following day. And Scriptures to follow. And if possible, a corresponding song. And some of my personal reflections on the word.
May the Spirit guide and inspire us as we go.
Grace & Peace
