Relationship status: Loved by God

From tax forms to social media profiles, the question of our relationship status finds us everywhere. Even when answering this question is optional, it’s still there, and it can feel as if it’s a big part of who we are.

The first time I had to check the “divorced” box on a form, I avoided it as long as I could, leaving it blank until I’d filled out all the other information. It wasn’t a description I had ever thought would appear next to my name, and it bothered me. This prompted me, however, to consider my identity more fully and to ask, What is it that truly identifies me?
