#TuesdayTreasure: Guest post by Jillian Lambert

Hello and Welcome!

Today my friend Jillian Lambert returns with ideas on things to treasure....


PEACEFUL TREASURES

What are your treasures in life?  When we think of the word “treasure” we think of the material world…A large, wooden treasure chest full of sparkling gold and jewelry. Material treasures are appealing, but what about the intangible treasures? Common treasures in life are love, peace, joy, health, and money.  Which one do you treasure?

I, personally, treasure peace, and I will tell you why.  Peace is a core treasure, and necessity for other treasures to be enjoyed.  Think about it…What would love, joy, health and money be without the core treasure of peace?

The treasure of love is a beautiful, uplifting, joyful feeling.   Love without peace would be the fear of not being loved, or of losing your loved ones.  Peace lets us know that, no matter what, we are loved.
What about the treasure of joy?  Joy without peace would again be fear, fear of losing that joyful feeling…Always waiting for the next horrible thing to happen.  Peace lets us know that there is joy and all is well.

There is the treasure of health.  We can’t do anything without our health, right?  What would health be without peace?  Health without peace would be fear of getting sick or injured.  Peace lets us know that we are healthy and all is well.

Money is a well-known treasure.  What would wealth be without peace?  Fear…Fear of spending too much money, not having enough money, or the fear of someone stealing your money.  With or without money, peace lets us know we are wealthy.

When it comes down to it, peace is the treasure of all treasures.  Peace eradicates fear.  Peace washes away worry, fear and doubt. Peace dissolves the fearful “What if?” questions in life.  Peace gives us comfort, relaxation and a knowingness that all is well.  Peace says, “All is well, enjoy your treasures.”

Wonderful post, Jillian! Thank you! I find it interesting that Jesus is called the Prince of Peace. Blessings to you!

Robin Bayne said...

I agree on peace!

Susan Oleksiw said...

I definitely need peace in my life to enjoy anything else.

Jillian Lambert, M.S. said...

Yes, Jesus, the Prince of Peace, has been there for me, many times, showering me with peace and a sense of calmness. In fact, my book "Real Pain Real Peace" was written in gratitude to the Prince of Peace. Thank you for your comments, MaryAnn! Blessings to you as well!

Jillian Lambert, M.S. said...

Yes, peace is a key ingredient to enjoying life! Thank you Susan Oleksiw and Robin Bayne for sharing your comments!

I love that He offers us a peace beyond our understanding! I'm a worrier, but I'm learning to trust in God more. Thanks for sharing this!

Jillian Lambert, M.S. said...

Well put, MJ Schiller! "A peace beyond our understanding." Yes, it's like magic. The instant you call upon him, comes instantaneous peace. Amazing.

Sometimes 'l'll meet someone whose demeanor I can describe only as "at peace." Even though I might not be feeling that peace myself, I find myself comforted. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this.

Excellent post. A good reminder of what's really important. I treasure mental health. My mom died from Alzheimer's so it's on my mind a lot.

Jillian Lambert, M.S. said...

Always a pleasure to meet those whose demeanor is "at peace." It's as if their peace spills over onto you as well. Thank you, Leah St. James...Another treasure to add to the list, those whose demeanor is "at peace."

Mental health is something we take for granted. I took it for granted until I experienced the loss of my mental health. Writing my book "Real Pain Real Peace" started out as a way to hang onto my sanity. I was in a very dark place before I started writing "Real Pain Real Peace." The act of writing my book, the grace of God, and the Prince of Peace is what pulled me back into the light. Thank you for sharing your comments Diane Burton. Sorry for the loss of your mother. My mother has joined God as well, so I feel for you. Angels of peace and healing to you.

Jillian Lambert, M.S. said...

And yes, compassion for those experiencing mental illness...May the light of God be with those in the darkness of mental illness...The light of God and Peace.

I was just looking at a passage this morning that said, "Perfect love casts off fear." Like you've said, lack of peace breeds fear. Really understanding God's love for us begets peace. I love the way your post weaves into my meditation for the day. Thank you, Jillian. Cheers
