Why Are You Downcast, O My Soul?

CJ Mahaney's New Attitude message is a "must listen." He exposits Psalm 42 and urges us to learn to speak to ourselves instead of listening to ourselves. Basically, he teaches us the importance of preaching the gospel to ourselves.

I listened today as I mowed the lawn. It was refreshing to my soul.

-CJ draws from Llyod-Jones' Spiritual Depression and Tripp's Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands.
-One of the Spurgeon quotes he uses (toward the end) is one of the best I've ever heard. I'll try to post the entire quote sometime soon.
-CJ points us to Christ. My favorite line of the message: "The Psalmist felt forsaken by God. Jesus actually was forsaken."
