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 differs because IT WILL BE FOR PRAISES ONLY & CONTINUALLY.
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

JUDY said 12/6/2018 1:35:18 PM :
This morning we saw a picture of how a good Christian man lived his life.

President George HW Bush was the embodiment of grace, love and hope. You can see it in the way he lived his life, loved his wife Barbara, and the tradition goes on in his kids, grandkids and rest of the family. He lived his life with humor, compassion, empathy and strength. whether you agreed or not with his political beliefs and his time in office, he was a man to look up to and to admire. He had character and he was a true gentleman. He liked to laugh and he tried to make others feel good about themselves. What a tribute to him and his family this morning.

He was coherent until his last minutes and when I told him Jesus LOVES YOU VERY MUCH, he nodded his head and spoke my name too! He passed away peacefully. I want to thank all those that prayed for him before the Lord took him to our Heavenly Father. The prayers gave him so much comfort both of us. Again, THANK YOU ALL! GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME!!
