To choose God

Here is the second half of the poem and I again do not know where it came from or the author:

To choose God
is to realize that you are known and loved
in a way surpassing anything one can imagine.
Loved before anyone had thought of you or spoken your name.

To choose God
means giving yourself up to Him in faith.
Let your life be built on this faith
as on an invisible foundation.
Let yourself be carried by this faith
like a child in its mother's womb.

And so,
don't talk too much about God but live
in the certainty that He has written your name
on the palm of His Hand.
Live your human task
in the liberating certainty
that nothing in the world can separate you
from God's love for you.
