One of the Fruits of the Holy Spirit. A visible attribute of a true Christian life as found in Galatians 5:22-23.
Denotes lenience, forbearance, fortitude, patient endurance, longsuffering. It describes a person who has the power to exercise revenge but instead exercises restraint.

We are "strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness". Colossians 1:11

an annoying period of time you have no choice but to deal with.
If you tell me to have patience one more time I'm going to scream!

it can mean having the will to wait for something.

and it was a hit single for the band - TakeThat.

but in my eyes it is the description of a brilliant friend of mine.
"have patience my friend, the ice cream van will be along shortly."

"my heart is numb has no feeling so while I’m still healing
just try and have a little patience."

" shut up patience. u are not ugly!"
