Lady in waiting.

the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom

but do not overlook this fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. [[the Lord is not slow to fulfill His promise]] as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.
but the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved and the earth and the works that are done with it will be exposed.
since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness,
[waiting and hastening the coming of the day of God]
>>therefore, beloved, since you are waiting for these, be diligent to be found by Him without spot or blemish, and at peace. <<

therefore encourage one another and build one another up.
be at peace among yourselves.
admonish the idle.
encourage the fainthearted.
help the weak.
be patient with them all.
rejoice always.
pray without ceasing.
give thanks in all circumstances.
do not quench the Spirit.

[He who calls you is faithful].

[[do not grow weary in your waiting]].
there is purpose in it.

our hopes are patiently, expectantly waited for, because our faith creates the proof and ability to spiritually see that which hasn't come to fruition yet.

because of faith, my hope is expectation.
of promises yet fulfilled.

the Spirit and the bride say, 'Come!'
