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 FORPRAISES 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,

Enjoy the Praise song above while posting & reading others PRAISES!
Father God, my CREATOR, my REDEEMER, I PRAISE and THANK YOU for ANSWERING my PRAYERS!
My husband was moved from ICU then to IMC (Immediate Care) and now he will be moved to rehab! He is doing so much BETTER now.
I PRAISE YOU my SAVIOR for showing him that YOU ALONE are WORTHY of LOVE and PRAISE, that YOU ALONE can HEAL his body, his SOUL and SPIRIT!
I count the days when we can BOTH come to church and BOW DOWN at YOUR feet to WORSHIP and GLORIFY YOU!!

My PRAISE goes first to MY Lord Jesus Christ!
Then it goes to your Wonderful Outreach Committee. I have been there a few times, and I filled out a card with my information.
Your committee has been so wonderful reaching out to me. They have come by my home, called and emailed me several times.
Unfortunately because of my work schedule, It makes it very hard too attend church. I work on the weekend and all different hours.
THANK YOU and God BLESS your WONDERFUL church for being a BEACON of LIGHT in this fallen world! Xo

Ben is now at the Rehab at Kindred. I gave him the DHBC 10/15/17 Church Bulletin to make him read “Pancakes”. He did not seem interested, but I said take your time. Finally, when I visited him yesterday he said he read Pancakes and UNDERSTOOD the story and told me that WHEN HE GETS BETTER, HE WILL COME WITH ME TO CHUCH.
So I PRAISE YOU my God and Savior for REACHING out to him the way YOU did! Please Lord; KEEP his HEART OPEN to YOUR LOVE and MERCY that the DAY WILL COME for us to WORSHIP and GLORIFY YOU TOGETHER!!

This note of PRAISE is from my cousin (Mario's) Robert Tompkins and as noted, he asked that I share it. Our God is an AWESOM God! This man recently went through a Lung Transplant and here is his testimony:
"Great Cuz EVERYDAY God IS IN ME! My FAMILY and my LIFE has ALWAYS been BLESSED! I was down Thursday and Friday fishing. Fixing to fix Grams’ Olga's place and have my fishing camp where my roots will always be and life is so GREAT and so GLAD God has MADE ME a WALKING MIRACLE TESTIMONY so I can GO and SHOUT out to EVERYONE to SEE and TALK too!
I finally figured it out, but it took me 50 yrs. to get bad like I should have been but HE NEVER LEFT MY SIDE, so NOW I will NEVER LEAVE HIS!!
I know you will enjoy this and Bonnie too, so please SHARE with your congregation and ALL U TALK TO about your cousins GOD EXPERIANCE TESTIMONY! Maybe send you a video of me telling my story. Will get.
LOV YA CUZ and ALL BAPTIZED coming up 50 yrs later and I am in LOVE with my Savior once again!! PRAISE HIM EVERYDAY and NIGHT!"
10/19/2017 7:14:52 AM :
Lord there is NO OTHER NAME ABOVE YOURS! YOU REIGN ALONE from the BEGINNING to the END and FOREVER!
THANK YOU Lord!!
10/18/2017 2:57:29 PM :
I'd also like to PRAISE God for my DRIVING LESSON today! I drove with ease because of HIM REASSURING me in the spirit "HE’S WITH ME" and I had NOTHING TO FEAR!
I drove downtown on the strip, all the freeways, Spaghetti Junction and the airport. I've never done this before and I'm so happy to have face my fear. So I give GLORY to God that I did it because of HIM!
My driving isn't just for my children and my needs, it's also for a MINISTRY that God has heavily laid on my heart and driving could shorten my commutes to do this.
So I HONOR HIM for TAKING CARE of me ALWAYS and as I do this I PRAISE HIM for giving me the COURAGE to do this.
10/18/2017 2:45:27 PM :
I'd like to PRAISE God for EVERYTHING!!
For Mrs. Kim’s Monday Night WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY Class. Which is TEACHING me how to BETTER COMMUNICATE the GOSPEL to OTHERS and also provoking a LIFESTYLE OF WORSHIP that I'd stepped away from because of life's distractions.
I'd like to also PRAISE God for Jack and Virginia for CELEBRATE RECOVERY I absolutely LOVE this PROGRAM! This ministry is what all church's need to let everyone know WE ALL ARE truly IMPERFECT and have a battle that's not ours because we can GIVE IT to Jesus and HE CAN HEAL US and make us VICTORIOUS over our adversaries!
I'd also like to PRAISE God for Ms. Judy for the SINGLES BIBLE STUDY and not only limiting the invite to singles, but also taking the time out to HELP US GROW in LOVE through the studying of 1 John and the POWER of the HOLY SPIRIT.
I really APPRECIATE these SISTERS and BROTHER for MOVING FORWARD in what God has LED THEM TO DO because it's really HELPING me!!
10/18/2017 7:20:03 AM :
Lord I am not ALWAYS WORTHY of YOU, but Lord YOU are ALWAYS with me! THANK YOU Lord!!

Lord, I LOVE what YOU REPRESENT, I LOVE the FACT that the Bible says; YOU CAN'T CHANGE and YOU CAN'T LIE! THANK YOU Lord!
God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?
Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it.
