• You find yourself daydreaming about chocolate. 
  • You read your Bible at lunchtime and have to skip the part about Jesus feeding the 5,000. 
  • You start secretly craving your dog’s treats. 
  • You know exactly what meal you’re going to eat when the fast is over. 
  • The sound of Pastor Tom Lane’s voice on the audio version of The Blessed Life devotional is the only thing that soothes you. 
  • You’ve posted Matthew 4:4 on your mirror: “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds the mouth of God.”
  • You thought about putting a cheeseburger in your blender so you won’t break your liquid-only fast. 
  • You scour the book of Daniel to see if the Daniel Fast includes smoked brisket. It doesn’t. 
  • You keep thinking you hear an earthquake, but it’s just your stomach growling. 
  • Your fingers start to look like hot dogs.
