For years I have been dreading the end of the world. Every time I think about or read about how or when the world is going to end, I get terrified and full of fear. I know that only God knows when the world is going to end, but my lack of faith holds me back from truly believing it.
I was born and raised in the Catholic church but I stopped going to church years ago. I'm tired of living in fear and disbelief. I pray to God every day, and God has blessed me with a good life, but I'm fearful of everything and I don't want to live in fear anymore.
I'm in search for answers and a way our of this fearful life. I need someone to please guide me and tell me how to find myself and truly have faith. Please help!
Do you have any words of encouragement or support to give our friend? Is it okay to be afraid of the end of the world? What does scripture say about fear and faith?
