A problem with all this messaging on cell phones is that we want to be liked.  We want people to give us the thumbs up and respond to whatever we say in some favorable way.  So we tend not to reveal our humanness, but rather to "perform."  We edit our life in what we type out to message, so that people will have a favorable impression of us.  To whom then do we reveal our faults and fears, our pettiness, and anxiety?  God is one place to take all this, but one must believe not only in God but that God is unconditional love and acceptance.  If your God is punishing, you will not go to that God with your difficulties and shortcomings.  That God is friendless.  I fear that the cell phone does not create true friends since you cannot be yourself with those you message.
