They are not ideas. They are internal responses.
Your emotions can serve as a signal that something needs your attention. Consider how to manage contentment and satisfaction.
CONTENTMENT: sense of well-being (1Tim 6:6-7).
Be grateful. Recognize that “happiness” is a poor goal for adults. The important things in life require some sacrifice and conflict.
SATISFACTION: sense of completing a task well (Mat 25:23).
Seek satisfactory closure for tasks. Make changes if you are not experiencing any satisfaction.
Study God’s Word for His advice on contentment and satisfaction.
