Reducing that "adipose belief of yourself"

It has been said that people shouldn't let their stomachs become waist baskets. Simple enough to say. But sometimes even the strongest materially based efforts to discipline eating habits—well, those efforts fail. And even if a person "succeeds," he may feel that the constant struggle to keep from slipping into old patterns outweighs the value of the success.

We may need to reassess our entire approach. Maybe we're being called on to reach out in quite an original way. Prayer is entirely different from using various material remedies: pills, surgery, diet. But more than likely if you're faced with the challenge of overeating or overweight, and if you are a regular reader of the Sentinel, you already have been praying. Still, there are always fresh views for prayer, views that spark new insights into the nature of God and His flawless, spiritual idea, man. And it is the Christ, Truth, impelling a continuing development of inspired views that leads to a full solution for whatever besets us.
