Background Information

I feel as though a lot of emphasis is placed on cellphones as well as social media sites. We probably have all heard by now some sort of situation involving Facebook, MySpace and Twitter. But the cell phone was the first culprit. In my book, The Cellular Effect, I first introduce who I am. I explain my younger years; I explain the relationships I was in, all to give you the set up as to why I remained in my marriage. My ex-husband committed awful offensives towards me, through his cellphone. To counteract, I changed what I was feeding. Anytime we are uplifted, our flesh is tested. I feed into the negatives. Scripture states that if we are to share in Gods Glory, we are to share in His suffering. There is a suffering we as believers are to endure. 1 Peter 4, states- If you are prepared to suffer for Christ you have decided to do away with immoral cravings; meaning, saying no to our flesh. I believe text messaging, picture messaging, Facebook, Twitter, etc., can cause discontent in relationships, if not used responsibly.
     For example: My ex-husband came home one day and stated he did not want to be married anymore. He had found him a new love via picture messaging. His family member had sent him pictures of a female who stripped at a local night club and he chose to be with her. Moving forward, he moved out. A few nights later, he called from the hotel he shared with her, intoxicated while dialing my number. He neglected to realize there was a GPS locater on his phone. The Cellular Effect was published by a Christian publisher so I try to be tactful in the situations I mention. Use your imagination in this circumstance. He called me at 5:15am. I answered reluctantly. On the other end of the line was my ex-husband saying he was sorry. At the same time there was a female entering the room talking in his background. When she realized he was speaking to me, she took the phone away from him and told me he was with her now. I was nothing. She said she was better than me. She cursed me and called me out of my name. This female did not know me, how dare she speak to me in this way I thought? She then made a statement that made me ill, and still does to this day. She said, “tell your wife you’re with me eating my fat ***** now!” And you know what; He got back on the phone and said those very words to me. I was sick. I cried. I reacted. I responded to this EFFECT in The Cellular Effect.
     I will tell you this; I forgave him and my insides through a fit. Sometimes it is uncomfortable to make the right decisions, but we must suffer through. I know that when God tells you to move away he will introduce you to something better. But I held on to the very thing God was attempting to move. I was not paying attention to the whispers. When He introduces you to something else, effects become easier to deal with. Whenever you give in, the flesh becomes stronger. You give it power. You must change what you are enabling; the cellphone, Facebook, Twitter. People should be mindful of what they post and need to hear about adverse effects from a first person point of view. Once you confront, you can begin to heal. It takes humility to walk above your issues; jealousy, envy, greed. God will never ask you to do anything with giving you the power to do it yourself. I stopped picking up my mate’s cellphone, checking his Facebook account to see his friends or worrying about his tweets. It is all debilitating to my spirit. I am not ready to fight against foolish issues anymore. So I do not look!

"The Cellular Effect"
I have seen men and women send friend requests to another person to find out whatever information they sought out, via MySpace and Facebook. I have witnessed people revealing their whereabouts on Twitter and become the victim of some type of violence. Men were cheating on women, women cheating on men; all done in its inception, by cellphone or online. There is someone who will read this that needs help turning their wickedness to a desire for healing. You have to desire help to receive it. Do the things that God has called you to do. Do not ask God for anything easy. I asked God for these words when I had no money to purchase a pad or pen. To deal with those unsolicited desires, check those things that are inside of you. Examine yourself, stand in the need of prayer and Jesus will allow you to leave the past and hurt behind and experience the love of God, not the love of your cellphone or any social media network. Come to grips with what you want in life, you will not find it in a text message, but you will find it in the text of the bible. I am a walking testimony. I turned it all over to the Lord when I looked in the mirror and cried. I knew God loved me, but I could not understand my ups and downs. Not until a good friend, Timothy, put life in perspective for me. I understand my purpose in life. I now look in my mirrors, my memories, and smile at all of them. What I was praying for was second best. I am not saying my ex-husband was not a husband; he was not the husband for me. I put a marriage together without speaking to God first. When I was not looking for him, God sent the mate I was supposed to have. He sent the best. This happened because I treated all of my days like Sundays. I was in prayer all day, every day, and I still am. I ask you to stay passionate about God. Don’t let your blessings become so common you forget to give Him thanks. Do not be upset at what you see other people doing. The enemy will have you to believe other people are better. It happened to me. I saw young ladies online hugging their fathers. I cried because I have never known my father. But then, a whisper, I’ve raised two handsome, wonderfully bright, smart young men, my sons. They will be strong fathers. And I love my father for the life he gave to me. After writing this story I healed and forgave him. I was often envious at the ladies I saw online who were smaller in size than I was. I tried all sorts of diets. Then a little voice said I was just fine the way I was. I thanked God for the health and strength I had. No matter the size, at every doctor’s visit I received a clean bill of health. I admired women with beautiful skin. I hated my birthmark on the right side of my face. But a wonderful company created Clinique make-up and the birthmark is no longer a factor. See, what you have to do is change your perspective. Maybe you can’t run, but you can walk. Maybe you can’t see, but you can smell. When you think no one loves you, do not worry; know that God loves you more than anything you could ever imagine. He dreams bigger than you ever could. I thought I wouldn’t love again because of the hurt from my ex-husband. I told my heart to beat again, and it did. I was bruised, but I wasn’t broken. Nothing happens in this life that is surprising to God. He was prepared for my cries. And because of Him I live all days with enthusiasm. I am passionate about the life I live because my Father is on the Throne. My faith allows God to do all things. Keep your life in perspective.

"Does Pink Go With Grey"
A foolish woman has divorced her husband over "50 Shades of Grey!" What an idiot! It’s good to have family and friends. But keep your marital-relationship situations to yourself. A young lady met a man. That man provided for her, cared for her children and sometimes came home tired and weary. Instead of her embracing him, cooking for him or even running him a hot bath, she pestered him. Your home is your sanctuary, keep it sacred. Women fantasize and romanticize about men in a sexual nature often and vice-versa. If you’ve read “50 Shades of Grey” you definitely know what I mean. Myself, I’ve visualized and envisioned a man in my life that could provide and simply love me unconditionally. A man who would be in my corner no matter what was in my bank account, what I rode in, where I lived, or what a scale registered when I stood on it. The lady in the story you are about to read about is Eva Pinkett, and her husband, Hans Pinkett. She allowed her so-called friends and her mother to enter into her marital bed. None of these women were married so how could they give anyone any advice? Now some may say, “I can do what I want to do! My husband watches porn, reads porn and probably discusses porn with his boys”. Well, let me tell you this: women will never be looked at the way men are looked at. They are cool when they do it and we are foul when we attempt it. Know your role. Keep the peace. Because if Eva keeps listening to “50 Shades of Grey” and the women in this story “she’s gonna mess around and be on the bus stop with her Moma!
