Apprehension according to is anticipation of adversity or misfortune; suspicion or fear of future trouble or evil. If you live your life with apprehension you are not really living. If perfection is your aim, you will never hit the bullseye.  As perfection is of God, making it a spiritual component of life, apprehension is not compatible as it is a component of fear or not God. When one spends sufficient time in the practice of prayer and meditation, one finds faith and confidence, which dissolves apprehension.

If we are performing with any level of apprehension, we cannot compete with people who are moving with faith and confidence. Apprehension, by its nature, slows us down and makes us susceptible to all the traps that fear creates. One can find a degree of confidence in many ways including experience and great support, but nothing is better in building confidence than a spiritual connection with God. We were made in God’s image and likeness so the more perfect we visualize God the more perfection we are capable of.

I have heard people say that a certain amount of fear is good. I cannot agree with this statement. Although a certain amount of apprehension is normal to the human condition it is not acceptable. The more fearless you make your life the more you will achieve. Although I know that I will suffer apprehension on occasion, it will never be acceptable for me. I am constantly trying to improve my confidence with continued personal inventories and constant prayer and meditation to get the insight only faith can deliver. If you want to know where to find your apprehension remember…

Your Life is PERFECT!

About Randolph Ek

My name is Dr. Randolph Ek, Mpsy.D. I started life as one of five children of an alcoholic father. The physical and mental abuse nearly destroyed my life. In fact my self-destructive behavior nearly landed me in prison. I eventually was guided to an alcohol/drug counselor and he directed me to a rehabilitation center. Since that time I have spent more than thirty years devoted to helping people find their ultimate potential. We can blame our negative, spiraling life on victimization but until we accept responsibility the power we need is beyond us. When we accept our part in our lives and surrender to a higher power, which I choose to call God, intervention is immediate. God allows us to realize our true power. We are all made in God’s Image and Likeness and have all the power of the universe at our disposal. We are not victims; we are volunteers and once we believe this truth our lives become limitless. God wants us all to have our heart’s desire and he will deliver whatever we continually think about good or bad. Unless I start my day off powerless and humble I cannot make the spiritual connection required to tap into God’s limitless power. God loves mankind and refuses to leave anyone behind. We can go willingly or we can be dragged to salvation. Pain is merely a symptom of spiritual separation mind, body and spirit. Realize, your individual limited resources, seek help, join others in their quest for spiritual understanding. Realize that all religions are right, yet they are also incomplete.
