From a believer who struggles with fear of Hell

I have confidence in the saving grace of Jesus and I have firm evidence in my life of the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. I yearn for God's truths in the Bible and I love his presence.

And yet, I still become wary and afraid when reading about Hell and the penalty that awaits those who are cast out. It is a terrifying fate, and what's worse is there are those who will claim Jesus as Lord but be cast out anyway.

Does anyone else have this issue? Would you say that having this fear is a lack of assurance on my part and therefore a lack of saving faith? It does sometimes push me to ensure that I am producing the correct fruit, and if the fruits of the spirit are evident then so must be the Holy Spirit, correct?

Sorry, rambled a bit, thoughts not terribly organized, those born out of fear often aren't.
