don't talk too much about God


Texas sky, September 2013
I was deeply moved by this passage from Rule for a New Brother (by an anonymous author), and thought I'd rock your world, too:
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.
...
And so,
don't talk too much about God
but live
in the certainty that God has written your name
on the palm of God's hand.
Live your human task
in the liberating certainty
that nothing in the world can separate you
from God's love for you.
