A Good Word From a Grace Gem

Do you get Grace Gems?  If you don't, you should.  They're just short devotionals, usually written by Puritans hundreds of years ago, delivered to your inbox daily.  They're always biblical and always relevant.  Today's was particularly poignant for me, given my frustration this week with an illness that is still lingering.  From Puritan John Newton:
Our peace and spiritual progress do not depend upon our outward circumstances - but the inward frame of our hearts and minds.  If the heart is right - a humble and broken spirit, obedient to the Lord's precepts, submissive to his will, devoted to please him, and depending upon his faithful word - we may be happy in a prison; and otherwise, we must be unhappy in a palace!
