Leanna (from two names)

     The name Leanna that comes from the two combined names of Lee and Anna would mean ‘one who is imbued with both prosperity and grace’. From the biblical definition prosperity means to advance, have peace, make progress, and succeed. (Prosperity in the Bible rarely has little if anything to do with gaining wealth. God does do this for His people, it just does not necessarily coincide with the word prosperity.)

     Grace means the free and unmerited favor or beneficence of God. Usually when the word grace is used in the Bible it has to do with God giving someone the ability to do something that they would not be able to do on their own merit. (I call this God given ability power of a sort.) Therefore the name Leanna here would mean one who is empowered by God to prosper her in her ways and in her life.

            The name Leanna means ‘one who is empowered by God to prosper her in her ways and in her life’.  Of course none of this can take place until and unless Leanna gives the reigns to her life and heart to God for Him to be able to guide her in the way she should go and what it is He has called her to do. When this is done, Leanna becomes a powerhouse for God.

            There is an old saying that still water runs deep. Leanna may or may not be a quiet person when she is around other people. But when she is alone with her God she is quiet, and still. For it is there that she hears God speak to her and learns the things He would have her to know.  Getting alone with Him and truly listening with her heart and putting into action the things the Lord has instructed her to do causes Leanna to develop a deepness within her soul. A deepness that only a few are able to acquire.

            Is Leanna a super saint that only thinks of God, studies His Word day and night and in general lives a monastic life? No, she is as spiritual as the rest of us and she sins and makes mistakes just like the rest of us do. The only Perfect One died on the cross for us. Leanna is an ordinary person living out her life and trying her best to do what she believes the Lord is telling her to do and go where He leads.

            Psa 1:3  And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
