I often use lisabeloved as my username when signing up for something online. It goes as far back with me as being my main email address, and it’s really become part of my identity online. And for some reason, I just felt inclined to explain what it means to me.

What does it mean.

Well, I stole it from John. John the beloved.

There was actually a study I did called Beloved Disciple. Not that I really remember much about the study itself, but the impression it left on me really stuck. The intimacy of being a disciple, of being close to Christ. It’s the farthest thing from religion you can get.

Every time I see or write that name, lisabeloved, I see myself being loved. I hear God saying my name and calling me His beloved. It really is the most tender and intimate thing. And it’s my name. It’s my identity.
