The puritans wanted a society where everyone’s main goal was to worship and focus their lives on the word of god. They wanted to become the blessed one and be the role model for how to worship god the right way.
I agree with her resolution because her story shows how amazing God is and how He always has a better plan. I feel that this book is a brilliant book. It shows how God’s love always overcomes evil and reminds us that we are never alone. The book is a good reminder and lesson to all Christians and people who are struggling with their suffering. It reminds us that even when we think we are alone and that nothing good is happening in our lives, God is overcoming, loving and has a greater plan.
Likewise, God wanted to teach me a lesson on persistence and dedication that day. Furthermore, God reminded me that He’ll never leave me or forsake me, and He promises to walk with me through every aspect of life. It may be frightening at times, but as my faith and trust in God has grown, I’ve learned that persistence and dedication pay off.

This is evident in the passage when she states. “And to my God my heart did cry / To strengthen me in my distress / And not to leave me
Many figures in the bible set great examples for how to act faithfully, and live the life God intended for them. Abraham is a relevant guide for having true faith as on many occasions illustrated in the bible he can be seen displaying unyielding devotion and trust in God’s plan. The most defining moment of Abrahams unwavering loyalty is depicted in Genesis 22:1-19, when God test his faith by asking him to sacrifice his son Isaac. Before Abraham kills Isaac, God provides an animal as an alternate sacrifice. By Abraham willingly obliging to God, he exemplifies how to truly have faith and trust.
When asked what compassion is, one of Father Greg’s students replied, “Compassion ...IS...God” (Boyle 62). Compassion is described as “total, unflinching love for other people, the kind modeled by Jesus Christ during his time on earth.” Father Greg uses Jesus’s compassion as a model for all things in life.
