Fearing Death...

I hope this thread is in the right place, and not offensive to anyone. Here goes…I fear hell, but at age 42, I’ve probably already lived longer than I deserve to have lived. So I am on the non-fearing side of fearing death. Assuming I won’t be going to hell, which is up to God’s mercy, and may He have mercy on me,I see no reason for fearing what will sooner or later come calling for me. Your thoughts?

I believe you have a healthy outlook. Why fear the inevitable? It is simply a part of life. Yet we all fear death to some extent whether we admit it or not.
