Leanna (from two
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
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.
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.
