5 AM Remember, no food today. If I can fast for blood work, I can fast for God.
6 AM I’m starving!
7 AM How am I ever going to get through this day?
8 AM He said no food. Grocery stores with only food are still grocery stores. Grocery stores with only liquids are not grocery stores. Therefore liquids are not food. Juice is not food. I can take Advil with OJ.
10 AM Only 10 AM? Oh, boy, this is going to be a long day.
11 AM That popcorn is calling me!
12 PM I want to eat, but I want God more.
1 PM God, help me!
2 PM Hangry is a real thing.
3 PM What am I supposed to do while I fast? I’m just wasting my time.
4 PM I am not hungry. I am not hungry. I am…
5 PM Is it bed time yet?
6 PM That chicken looks so good. People who are fasting should not have to feed toddlers.
7 PM I don’t feel any closer to God.
8 PM Iced Coffee with my meds – only enough to take the them
9 PM Hmmm… this is not so bad, although my rumbling stomach seems to disagree.
10 PM I did it!
God: Well done!
