Sovereign Grace Music released a new album last week entitled, Sooner Count the Stars. I’ve been listening to it and the truth contained in these songs is blessing my soul.
I came across a quote from D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones years ago where he said, “Have you realized that most of your unhappiness in life is due to the fact that you are listening to yourself instead of talking to yourself?” Lloyd-Jones was referring to Psalm 42:11 where the psalmist tells his own soul to hope in God. The psalmist was in a very low place and yet he was reminding himself of what was true and he directed himself accordingly.
Singing is a way we talk to ourselves. It’s way we remind ourselves about what is true. It’s a way to turn ordinary moments into moments of exuberant praise. I thank God for Bob Kauflin, the director of Sovereign Grace Music, because of his efforts to bring us songs rich with gospel truth. I commend to you this album. You can download it via iTunes, Amazon or get a CD from Sovereign Grace.
