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

    Two days ago my mother went home to be with our Savior. I miss her already, but I’m GRATEFUL that she is out of pain. My mother closed her eyes and went to sleep. She looked so PEACEFUL when she did. It hurts right now. I know God DIDN’T want to see her suffer anymore! She fought as long as she could to stay here. It was just her time. Please keep me in your prayers there at Desert Hills Baptist Church as I deal with her being gone. I already miss her. She was my best friend. THANK YOU, Lord, for GIVING me such a WONDERFUL MOTHER!!

    Today I was smoking many cigarettes with my eyes glued to my laptop – as i have been doing since this Covid Virus began almost a year ago, the headaches would get worse each day… During these long, lonely month I realized I was drifting away from my relationship with Christ – and – as I thought about Him – my headache started to VANISH – truly a WONDER, I thought it may have been the meds that I took earlier (an ibuprofen 2+ hours earlier and another med I take to help me sleep) but I BELIEVE He took my PAIN AWAY! I was having a very rough night (paranoid schizophrenic) and the headaches weren’t making it any better! So I THANK YOU Jesus for bringing LIGHT into my otherwise VERY DARK day! Also, I THANK Jesus for this WEBSITE that I believe He found for me!

    I PRAISE God for ALL He has done for me! Like many, 2020 wasn’t the best year at all. On top of everything that was going on my mother had dementia, and she grew worse, but I kept her home with me until nearly the end. Except for a few difficult times at the hospital, she went mostly fast. I remember having so much PEACE that day! I PRAYED for so long that God would let her stay a while longer, but He gave me so much PEACE during the end! He has also BLESSED me to get along with my sister. He HELPED me to see her in a DIFFERENT WAY! He has BLESSED me SO MANY TIMES and I remain AMAZED at His GOODNESS! THANK YOU Lord, for YOUR BLESSINGS, for GIVING me back my sister, and for HELPING me! I LOVE and PRAISE You and APPRECIATE EVERYTHING You HAVE DONE in my life!!

    I just want to take some time to publicly THANK God for bringing someone new into my life! I’ve had a rough past. Being widowed at only 24 was not very easy. However I PRAISE the Lord, because after 4 years, I am now in a relationship with someone brand new, who I actually love and is a man of God! He’s truly a man after God’s heart, and I am beyond happy!
