Desert Hills Baptist Church

As Senior Pastor of Desert Hills Baptist Church, I would like to welcome you to our PRAISE Blog!
Everyone (members, non-members, anywhere in the US or other countries) will have the opportunity to blog their PRAISES
as often as you feel led to and we will be compiling all PRAISES on our website blog, to make a MOUNTAIN OF PRAISE.

Years ago in my own life, I was going through a particularly hard time, (yep, Christians/Pastors have problems too).
I counseled with my Pastor at the time and he gave me the keys to unlocking all despair. A formula of sorts to dealing with darkness. Simply put, PRAISE GOD!

Not only is He worthy, but praise requires the believer to meditate on all of God's Wonder, Grace, Mercy, Love and Compassion.
Upon reviewing all God has done, is doing, and frankly who He is, one's own countenance cannot help but be lifted up.
Besides that, the Bible itself declares, it is comely for the righteous to Praise God, Psalm 33:1. It is a form of sacrifices that
God Himself sponsors and inhabits, Hebrews 13:15.

Our Mountain of Praise will become a place of refuge and encouragement for the lost and the saved alike!

As we offer our praises for God and how He has forgiven us through the shed blood of His son, Jesus.
We can also post how He has answered specific requests, delivered from temptations, and blesses us beyond belief.

MOUNTAIN OF PRAISE has the potential to literally reach the world and change it one praise at a time!

Until we are called home, and the church is raptured, let us build this Mountain together as a permanent testament to God's Goodness.
Be blessed! Then PRAISE about it! Psalm 145:4-12 (Look it up!!!!)

Always Praising Him,
Pastor Scott
