Today’s song comes from the youngest artist to ever sign a contract with Sparrow Records. Connie Scott was 18 years old at the time and went on to become a popular Canadian Christian singer in North America. While Connie never reached the fame of Amy Grant or Twila Paris, her lyrics and voice has left behind her own music legacy with Forever Young.
Fight the good fight of the faith; lay hold of the eternal life to which you were summoned and [for which] you confessed the good confession [of faith] before many witnesses, 1 Timothy 6:12.
The lyrics of Forever Young is like a closing benediction at the end of a church service. This tradition song reminds listeners that you’re only as old as you believe. If you allow self-fulfilled prophecies to speak doubt, illness, and worry into existence, your life will be shortened. Yet, if you claim the power of God’s promises in the Bible, the abundant life of John 10:10 is in reach by spiritual discipline and faith.
