You don't need customer_listing.xml or indexer.xml to show customer attribute in gird. these line will do it for you

    'is_used_in_grid'       => true,
    'is_visible_in_grid'    => true,

Just run the following command. This will show your column in grid.

 php bin/magento indexer:reindex

Make sure Customer Grid index rebuilt Customer Grid index has been rebuilt successfully

New column of customer_status will be created customer_grid_flat table
