When your heart is breaking with stress, sadness, and struggles, you should consider what the Word of God says about having a fixed heart.
A heart that is fixed is a heart that is settled within and resolute without. It is not affected by external conditions and extenuating circumstances. David wrote four times in three places about a heart that was fixed.
