She alludes to this because she has lost her way on Gods path to her eternal salvation. This is affiliated with the bible, specifically Jacob. She feels as though she has been put into his place. This is a good quote because it helps her keep her faith, and trust that god will help her in the end. Rowlandsons’ other philosophy is that God will help her with her troubles and sorrows in life.
Sister Helen mentions in the movie that “The truth will save Poncelet in heaven. One great example is that Jesus always forgive the people who kills and who have sinned. Sister Helen did exactly what Jesus did. She followed her dignity to help others who

An additional example Bradstreet adds to her poem that makes it more puritanical, is her belief that God makes everything happen for a reason. Towards the end of the poem Bradstreet acts more pragmatic about the situation. She starts understanding she did not own her house or anything in it, God did.
For example, when the angel appeared in Joseph’s dream and told him the truth about the child Mary was carrying, Joseph immediately, without hesitation took Mary as his wife. Joseph also loved and cared for Jesus, as his one concern was for the safety and well being for the child entrusted to him. He loved Jesus although Joseph was not his legitimate father, and cared for Jesus and loved him just as any father would for his own son.

One example of this was when Tituba was being questioned about conjuring the devil. The conversation ends up being all about god and how she wants nothing more than to bless him.

There were very few female writers during this period, and even fewer Puritan female writers. Due to a woman’s place in Puritan society, a preface was added to her narrative by a prominent Puritan pastor as his approval for the minister’s wife to publish her prose. This was done to protect her and her family’s reputation, so she would not be seen as overstepping her feminine boundaries. Reverend Mather viewed the publication of her story as a way to reinforce the stern Puritan values to the community. The many Biblical references and quoted scriptures made it even more engaging for those of the Puritan faith.
She had enough faith to not give up; Naomi trusted God and continued to serve him in spite of what was in front of her.

Ruth, someone new to serving God and trusting him decided that she would put all her Faith in him. She witnessed what God had
Everything she worked hard for was gone, her possessions, she owned and loved dearly gone. Job never lost faith in God after losing everything he worked for and loved. God gave him more than he lost for his actions, and he was grateful. Anne Bradstreet prayed to God, but she never cursed him. She knows that God will give her a better home in heaven, and that all she lost is no needed where she’s going.
In my true heart/ I find she names my very deed of love,/ Only she comes too short, that I profess/ Myself an enemy to all other joys/ Which the most precious square of senses possesses,/ And find I am alone felicitate/ In your dear Highness' love." (I, I, 72-80) Both Goneril and Regan tell Lear they love him the most and Lear is too blind to see that they are
God gives me a place I can go back to whenever I let my emotions get the better part of me. One moment in prayer with Him and He makes me become conscious of why life is so precious. Whether I am angry, hurt, disappointed, confused or when I just need someone to listen, He is my sanctuary. He gives me a peace that is indescribable. No man can ever love me or understand me the way He does and that is why I will be forever thankful to Him.
