How did this blog get such a seemingly unrelated name for it’s subject of food issues? You may not be aware, but there are many web sites that promote anorexia. Such sites are called “pro-ana”. It has been discouraging to me that men and women struggling with anorexia can find many sites to perpetuate their issue.
One day in February I was running on my treadmill and I sensed God speaking the name, “Ana” and the acronym “Abundantly Nurtured by Abba” I felt the urging to look up the name Ana. When I looked up the meaning of Ana, I found that it means grace! http://www.sheknows.com:
The name Ana is a Hebrew baby name. In Hebrew the meaning of the name Ana is: Grace.
The name Ana is an American baby name. In American the meaning of the name Ana is: Grace.
The name Ana is a Spanish baby name. In Spanish the meaning of the name Ana is: Grace; favor.. Often used in blended names like Analee and Anarosa.
As someone who leans on God’s grace and mercy for almost everything, I understood that only through His grace and nurturing will someone be healed of anorexia and/or bulimia or any eating issue no matter how small it may be.
I was also hearing that I should look up the meaning of Annabelle. I love this name and it means joy, but then I found a current, slang meaning for this name. It was surprising to me. Here is what I found at Urbandictionary.com
