Hi! My name is Maria. I’ve been writing for many years, blogging for several. I specialize in fiction of different kinds and poetry. My desire is to encourage others in their faith.

I took Pilgrim’s Progress for the theme of my blog because it’s the story of coming to the Lord Jesus Christ in repentance and faith, walking the narrow way with Him, and arriving safe in Heaven because of His boundless power. Pilgrim’s Progress is also the theme of my second blog, a palace beautiful, which is devoted to encouragement without controversy.

Mercy, grace, and peace be multiplied to you who believe in Him Who is our God and Saviour!

Matthew 7:13-14

Jesus warned,

13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

Hebrews 11:16 

16 But now they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them.

Hebrews 7:24-25

24 But He, because He continues forever, has an unchangeable priesthood. 25 Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.

  1. Just wanted to thank you for the like on my blog. I appreciate your focus – on the Lord Jesus, using Pilgrim’s Progress as a template. Truly there is in that writing which speaks to our world. We see Madame Bubble or her children all the time on TV and other media. Going to follow you. Since you mention views of prophecy, I’ve been a believer in the doctrines of grace for many years, but, without meaning to be divisive or difficult, have never seen anything in Scripture or Reformed writings, to be anything but premillennial. I know it’s said that “prophecy” isn’t important, and in the sense that any particular view of it isn’t necessary to be saved, that’s true, but it is in God’s Word – a lot of it. It is, on that account, important. Thanks again for the like and I hope to get to know you better in days to come.

  2. Good reference up top: ‘He hath an unchangeable priesthood…….’ indeed Maria.

    And oh, I’m almost certain that you are the first person to link me to a ‘roll.’ 😉

    That’s mighty nice of you. I always thought it strange to ‘suggest’ to someone that they include a link. Always better your way.

  3. Maria, I have read the pilgrim’s regress. I passed up the opportunity to buy the pilgrim’s progress at s Salvation Army counter recently. Is it worth the read?
