  1. Bradford clearly relied and put his faith in God during times of trial, despite his fears of the unknown, and even as he watched those around him dying. He and the other Puritans were still able to come out of the suffering and difficulty praising the Lord and thanking him for protection and care. Has there been a difficult time in your life you experienced God’s hand protecting, comforting, or strengthening you? How can trials in our lives be opportunities for spiritual growth?
