Quoted: A fun God

"We associate all the fun and excitement and neon coolness of life
with the world and leave God all the boring, discipline-flavored moments. 
He's like eating broccoli. 
We know it's good for us, but it's still broccoli. 
But that can't be right. 
He's constantly saying, 
"Let's go find cliffs to jump off of," 
"I know exactly what you need, because, guess what, 
I put that need there." 
He created my heart and the deepest desires I have, 
and there's no yacht or nightclub on the planet that can 
access those spots of me like God can. 

And besides, he invented sex. 
And not just "let's make a baby" sex--He invented 
"whoa, the world just tilted on its axis; I can't believe 
we get to do that and go to heaven too" sex. 
Sometimes we act like we were the ones that discovered it was fun, 
like maybe God was in heaven and was surprised to see how 
enjoyable we were able to make it. 
"Whoa, I created that for procreation purposes; 
I had no idea it would be so awesome." 
And so we give the world credit for sex
and think that God is only down with the functional version, 
but the fun version, the wild version, 
that's probably something Marvin Gaye came up with.

Linking up all over the place.


  1. Oh my WORD, I love this, I've never heard of this author, I gotta go find him! This was incredible. When I first started reading I was like, man oh man is Ferial ahead of her years, and then I saw it was someone else who wrote it--then I thought to myself, SHE IS STILL ahead of her years for being WISE enough to know how BEAUTIFUL and Spirit filled THIS is!!! Love you to death!

  2. This is very entertaining! You have such a cute and interesting blog, I was browsing through your posts and I love your style. I really liked the instagram post [sadly, I don't have an iphone, but I do love instagrams when I see them posted!] & this post is entertaining! Visitng from For the Love of Blogs, thanks for sharing!!


  3. Humorously written! I feel like I'm rediscovering It/Him/That/Her, or whatever put us on this earth and I feel the same way you do. He is the source to everything, he is omnipresent.

    Hopping from FTLOB and wishing you a still lovely Sunday :)
