Recently I read about a strongly built, husky young man who fainted just before he was to get a needle. He was experiencing belonephobia, a fear of sharp objects, especially needles. Happily, there are needles as short as four millimeters and as fine as 32-gauge needles to take the fear away. But wouldn’t it be great if there was a needle to take away all fear, such as fear of failure, ill health, the future, and other concerns? Well our Heavenly Father promises to remove fears. He said in the book of Isaiah, “Fear not for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes I will help you…” When we have Christ in our lives, we find that “perfect love casts out fear.” So, let’s take our burdens to the Lord and leave them there.
