Hey, I'm sure God can help, talk to God about your fears- He understands and He wants to help you. I'll pray for you and I'm sure other people on guide will too.

ya eternity is sort of weird to think about. i mean, time just goes on and on and on and it never ends...sorry i am probably making u feel worse! :sick: :( but just imagine that God will be with u during eternity. isnt that cool?!u will get to talk to him face-to-face. and we will be in heaven, where all the food will taste REALLY good and where all the animals will act nice. personally, i wouldnt want anything that awesome to end! but if the thought of a never-ending time period still freaks you out, you should pray about it. tell God how u feel (even though He probably already knows ;) ) He will be able to help you. dont worry dani10: when eternity DOES come, I have a feeling that u wont feel sick about it. ;) :P B)

I have the exact same feeling. Well, when I was 5. I think the reason to this mystery, is that we humans are used to a beginning, and an END. We need a FINISH, and since eternity has no FINISH, its a problem for humanity in its CURRENT state, which is a sinful world, with a beginning and an end. Heavenly, or sinless, beings, have no such qualities, which makes them afraid, of practically nothing. One mystery about eternity, is space. if its expanding, in what is it expanding in. So I think, we are scared, that we will have an eternal life of problems. But that's human, sinful, thinking. In a heavenly, pure, thinking, its amazing, to be eternal. In the beginning, we were created to NEVER have an END. Thats the beauty of eternity. Thanks for reading.
So let me sing for the love
Let me love for the lost
Let me lose all I have
For what I found on the cross
Let me trust you with my life
Let me live to give you praise
Lord, let me praise you
For the grace by which I'm saved
Lord, let me sing

I personally can't wrap my head around the "no beginning" property that God has, but I'm sure we'll understand it in Heaven. For now, I just try to not think about it ;)
