I am rooted and grounded in love.
I speak the truth in love.
I endure long and I am patient and kind.
I am never envious, nor do I boil over with jealousy.
I am not boastful, nor do I display myself haughtily, or in an arrogant way. I am not inflated with pride.
I am not rude or unmannerly.
I am not self-seeking or insisting on my own rights or way.
I am not touchy, fretful, or resentful.
I take no account of the evil done to me, and I pay no attention to a suffered wrong.
I do not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but I rejoice when righteousness and truth prevail.
I bear up under anything. I have love’s strength. I have love’s power.
I am ready to believe the best of every person. My faith is not in them but in God’s love.
My hopes are fadeless under all circumstances and I endure everything without weakening.
I never fail, become obsolete, or come to an end.
