In storms, we need someone who’s going to assess our situation with honesty and fairness. Someone who’s going to perfectly love, understand and guide us.
Knowing this, Jesus did something about it:

Thank you, Father, that You never leave me.
Thank you for your Counselor who gives me truth and peace.
Counselor, thank you for welcoming me in Your presence. Patiently…
You download hope, fanning my spirits as mysteriously as angel wings.
You listen like no other. You know how I tick and what ticks me. Still you love me.
May I listen to you as you listen to me.
May I seek You first. Always.
Take my aches, dry my tears, calm my thoughts, still my fears.
I seek to understand You back, to forgive others the way you forgive me.
Perfect, ever-present, Holy Counselor…
Thank you for everything.
In Jesus’ name. Amen
